Profile Config Commands

This parameter allows WiNG APs adopted to ExtremeCloud Appliance to rediscover a new controller in case the first controller is unreachable. It applies to WiNG APs configured to adopt to a WebSocket controller (ExtremeCloud Appliance). In other words, the AP's adoption-mode is set to 'ws-controller'.

As per the current implementation, WiNG AP adoption to the ExtremeCloud Appliance WebSocket controller, supports only one controller. If the adopting controller goes down, the AP does not attempt to re-discover and adopt to another controller. If the AP reboots, it uses the management-server configuration to discover and adopt to the first discovered controller. This prevents the AP from adopting to a new controller. Use this parameter to configure multiple ws-controller hosts and enable rediscovery of new ws-controller.

Supported in the following platforms:

  • Access Points — AP505i, AP510i/e, AP560i/h
  • Service Platforms — NX5500, NX7500, NX9500, NX9600, VX9000


ws-controller host <1-5> port <1-65535>


ws-controller <1-5> port <1-65535>
ws-controller host <1-5> Configures multiple WebSocket controller hosts.
  • <1-5> - Select the controller to configure. A maximum of five controllers can be configured.

When a WiNG AP with adoption-mode set to 'ws-controller' reboots, it will try to connect to the ws-controller received in DHCP option 191, then it will try connecting to the controller hosts configured here.

port <1-65535> Specify the port on which the controller is reachable.
  • <1-65535> - Select the port number from 1 to 65535. The default value is 443.
