Hello we have installed 4 stand alone 7352 AP's without a Zone Director. Is there a way we can change the WPA2 password other than connecting directly to each of the APs to change the password?

Unfortunately, there is no option to this :(

You need to connect to each AP wired/wireless to access it and get this changed.

Cheers,

...which of course can be scripted if it's something to do frequently.

How about using Flexmaster via:

1. Creating an AP config template (Configure > Standalone APs > Config Template)
2. Provisioning said template via configuration task

You can manage Standalone AP's, Zone Directors and ZF 7731 bridges by the FM. and you can create a template push the template to all connected standalone AP's at once. You can also schedule this task as per your requirements.

To clarify, no sir, you don't.

Thus, one answer to your question would be FlexMaster (albeit, a $1000 + a VM or server answer, not to mention added time to configure and shoot out a template).

Another, the one that Mr. Redfield mentioned, would be to script it.

I think the latter is better, but requires a programmer/scripter to build a frontend that will scrape the HTML page of each AP, then submit changes. We have done this for the guestpass creation, as in we have a web frontend that connects to several ZD's guestpass page, and "one clicks" a guestpass for Wi-Fi portal password generation. All the enduser have to do is access a single webpage, click two dropdown menus, then submit.
