Introduction

The following information provides an example for managing cloud-managed APs from the Oasis platform.

Prerequisites

The following information applies to cloud-managed APs. Procedures and information in the examples might be slightly different depending on the software or hardware version of the cloud-managed APs.

The configuration examples were created and verified in a lab environment, and all the devices were started with the factory default configuration. When you are working on a live network, make sure you understand the potential impact of every command on your network.

The following information is provided based on the assumption that you have basic knowledge of cloud-managed APs and the Oasis platform.

Example: Configuring cloud-managed AP management from the Oasis platform

Network configuration

As shown in Figure 1, the cloud-managed AP connects to the network through a switch. Configure the cloud-managed AP to obtain an IP address through DHCP. Configure cloud-managed AP management from the Oasis platform so that users can view and manage the AP from the PC.

Figure 1 Network diagram

 

Restrictions and guidelines

Make sure the AP can use the IP address assigned by the DHCP to access the public network.

Make sure the DNS server can translate the address of the Oasis server correctly.

Procedures

For more information about configuring cloud-managed APs from the Oasis platform, see H3C Cloud-Managed AP Configuration from the Oasis Platform User Guide.

Accessing the Oasis platform

Log in to the Oasis platform. Open a browser from the PC, and enter oasiscloud.h3c.com in the address bar. On the login page that opens, enter the username and password.

Adding a branch

1.     On the top navigation bar, click Network.

2.     From the left navigation pane, select Network > Organization.

3.     On the page that opens, select the root branch, and then click Add.

4.     Enter a branch name.

Renaming a branch

1.     From the left navigation pane, select Network > Organization.

2.     On the page that opens, select the target branch and then click Edit.

3.     Rename the branch.

Deleting a branch

1.     From the left navigation pane, select Network > Organization.

2.     Select the target branch and then click Delete.

You cannot delete the root branch.

To delete a branch that has sites or sub branches, first delete the sites or sub branches.

Adding a site

1.     Perform either of the following tasks:

¡     From the left navigation pane, select Network > Dashboard. Select the target branch from the upper left corner of the work pane, and then click Add.

¡     From the left navigation pane, select Network > Organization. From the organization pane, select the target branch, and then click Add above the site list.

Figure 4 and Figure 5 use the Network > Dashboard page as examples.

2.     Select Multiple Device Types from the Device Type field and Converged Scenario from the Scenario Type field, and then click Next. To view supported device models in the scenario, click Supported Models.

In the Supported Models window, you can click the search icon  to filter models.

Adding a device

You can add a device to a site immediately after creating the site, or perform the following steps to add a device to an existing site:

1.     From the left navigation pane, select Network > Devices.

2.     Select the target branch and site from the upper left corner of the page, and then click Add.

3.     Specify the device name, SN, and device type, and then click Add.

Figure 8 Adding a device

 

If it is the first time you add a device, you must select a region code.

Configuring a wireless service

1.     From the left navigation pane, select Settings > Cloud APs > Settings, and then select the target branch and site.

2.     On the Region Code tab, select a region code, and then click OK.

3.     Click the Wi-Fi Settings tab, and then click the down chevron  to expand the Wireless Service Config menu. You can click Show All Services or Show Enabled Services as needed to show all or enabled services.

4.     To enable or disable wireless services in bulk, select the target services, and then click Enable Service or Disable Service.

5.     To enable or disable SSID hidden for wireless services in bulk, select the target services, and then click Hide SSID or Show SSID.

Figure 12 Configuring wireless services in bulk

 

6.     To edit a wireless service, click the SSID of the service and then configure auto SSID, the SSID name, wireless service state, encryption, and authentication as needed.

 

 

NOTE:

With auto SSID enabled, you must click Auto SSID Setting Sync after changing the AP name or importing APs to deploy the SSID settings to devices.

Verifying the configuration

1.     On the top navigation bar, click Network.

2.     From the left navigation pane, select Monitor > Cloud APs > AP List.

3.     Select the target branch and site from the upper left corner of the work pane.

4.     View AP statistics in the site, including AP online state, MAC addresses, and IP addresses.

5.     Click the name of an AP, and view the client association trend and online client statistics.

6.     If auto SSID is enabled, verify that the SSID name is as required. With auto SSID enabled, the system combines the configured SSID and the device name to form an SSID name for easy identification. For example, if the configured SSID is Hotel and the device name is 1103, the SSID name will be Hotel_1103.
