Usage Guidelines

Usage Scenario

  • APs are often installed in hidden places or at high positions. When an AP becomes faulty, it is inconvenient to connect to the AP through a console port or network cable to troubleshoot faults.

    After the offline management VAP function is configured, if an AP goes offline unexpectedly, maintenance personnel only need to set the IP address of a STA to 169.254.2.x/24 (except 169.254.2.1, 169.254.2.100 is recommended). After the STA associates with the offline management VAP, maintenance personnel can connect the STA to the AP in Telnet or STelnet mode to locate and rectify faults, saving the need to connect to the AP through the console port or a network cable.

  • During WDS/Mesh network deployment, you can configure antenna alignment VAPs for WDS/Mesh nodes to facilitate antenna alignment between neighboring APs. During onsite commissioning, you can use a mobile STA to access an antenna alignment VAP and enable the WiFi Go app to obtain information such as RSSI of the peer AP radio. Based on this information, you can easily complete antenna alignment. The SSID of the generated antenna alignment VAP is hidden and will be automatically deleted 24 hours after being created.

After the offline management VAP and antenna alignment VAP functions are configured, the VAP generated when an AP goes offline is an offline management VAP. When the AP works properly, the VAP generated in WDS/Mesh scenarios is an antenna alignment VAP.

Configure an offline management VAP and an antenna alignment VAP using either of the following methods:
  • Configure the default offline management VAP and antenna alignment VAP: After the offline management VAP and antenna alignment VAP functions are enabled using this command, the AP automatically creates an offline management VAP when it goes offline unexpectedly. When the AP works properly, the AP automatically creates an antenna alignment VAP in WDS/Mesh scenarios. The default SSID and password of the antenna alignment VAP are hw_manage_xxxx and hw_manage respectively. xxxx indicates the last four bits of the AP's MAC address. For security purposes, you are advised to run the temporary-management psk command in the AP system profile view to change the password of the default SSID (hw_manage_xxxx) of the offline management VAP and antenna alignment VAP.
  • Create a new offline management VAP and a new antenna alignment VAP: If any wireless user can use the default SSID and password to log in to an AP, leading to high security risks. To improve security of the offline management VAP and antenna alignment VAP, you can bind a security profile of a high security level to a VAP profile, and set new SSIDs and passwords. Additionally, you can run the temporary-management enable command in the VAP profile view and the undo temporary-management disable command in the AP system profile view to configure the VAPs generated in the VAP profile as the offline management VAP and antenna alignment VAP. The default offline management VAP and antenna alignment VAP will not be created.

Precautions

  • The offline management VAP takes effect only when an AP goes offline unexpectedly.

  • The offline management VAP function does not take effect on 4.9 GHz radios.

  • Before using the offline management VAP function, ensure that the AP has enabled with Telnet or Stelnet services.

  • The antenna alignment VAP is automatically deleted 24 hours after it is created. If you want to use an antenna alignment VAP after the deletion, run the temporary-management disable and the undo temporary-management disable commands in the AP profile view in succession to create a new antenna alignment VAP.

  • After the offline management VAP function is enabled.
    • If the link between the central AP and RUs is disconnected, the RUs will not generate an offline management VAP.
    • If the link between the central AP and AC is disconnected but RUs are still connected to the central AP, all online RUs connected to the central AP automatically generate an offline management VAP. If the central AP is AD9431DN-24X, STAs log in to RUs through the offline management VAP. If the central AP is not AD9431DN-24X, STAs log in to the central AP through the offline management VAP.
  • The central AP does not have radios and therefore do not generate an offline management VAP.
  • The offline management VAP function and service holding upon CAPWAP link disconnection are mutually exclusive. When the two functions are configured at the same time, the offline management VAP function cannot take effect.

  • In offline management VAP scenarios, STA address learning does not take effect.
