How to change primary ZoneDirector IP per AP other than using command line?

I have several Ruckus APs (ZF7343) that are hard-coded to use a specific ZoneDirector, and after configured so, all Telnet/SSH/HTTP/HTTPS are disabled on each AP by the guy who worked here before me.

I have a need to change the designated ZoneDirector IP but I don't think I can access command line except by plugging console cable to all AP one by one, which is very inconvenient.

If I try to change the designated primary ZoneDirector IP from Access Point Policies in the ZoneDirector that currently managing it, the config will be applied to all other managed AP, which I dont want to change.

Please help :(

in current scenario you can select the AP first which need to work with different controller then remove them from network, hard reset, reconfigure to work with new controller..

or

get the CLI/SSH access back to make change on the AP side...

Hi Monnat, thanks for the reply.
I want to avoid physical work if possible, so the first option that you mentioned seems to be my last choice.
I'd like to know how can I get the SSH access back again, as right now I don't have access at all to individual AP (like I said, all CLI/SSH/Telnet/HTTP/HTTPS has been disabled from the AP configuration itself). Can I do this from ZoneDirector? So far I can't find the options to do that, please advise :(

yes, once you ssh access to AP cli then you can login into each AP and run command to decide which AP connects to which controller..

from controller "CLI" there is a way...not from GUI

You should be able to do it with the "remote_ap_cli" option.  From the ZD's CLI (without single quotes):


'debug'

'remote_ap_cli -a  "get ssh"'


This runs the command locally on the AP, and reports output.  It can be used for any local command for APs, such as "set factory" and "reboot" to default, or "set director ip A.B.C.D" to manually set the ZD's IP address.

Please do be aware that even with the ZD's address hard-set, they will remember the current ZD's IP and connect back if they don't reach the new one.
