Usage Guidelines

Usage Scenario

When AP hardware needs to be replaced, you can change the MAC address of the AP to that of a new AP to prevent repetitive data configurations. After the change, the new AP goes online using the ID of the original AP, and all data configurations of the original AP take effect on the new AP.

By default, you can run the display ap { all | ap-group ap-group } command to check the MAC address of an AP.


Replacing an AP enables the new AP to go online on the AC but will interrupt services of the original AP.


# Replace the AP with the ID 0 with the AP with the MAC address 0002-1110-0120.

<HUAWEI> system-view
[HUAWEI] wlan
[HUAWEI-wlan-view] ap modify 0 mac 0002-1110-0120 
Warning: Modify AP will influence the service that has published in AP, Whether to continue? [Y/N]y
