Cisco Wireless controller 5760 HA priority setting

From the CLI what is the command to change the HA priority setting.  I need to change the setting from low to critical.  At the GUI I am not able to change the setting at all.  Is there a command to accomplish this from the CLI?

Thanks

Change the switch stack priority will do:

example: switch 1 priority 15

"show switch" to verify the change. BTW, it does not affect the current active role until next reload.

Thanks for the info but I do not have access to the switch.  I was looking for a way of setting the priority at the controller

The command is apply to the WLC directly...

Your 5760 is a pair stacking HA, right?

@nh6we - are you talking about AP failover or actual HA failover between WLCs?

The APs can be configured with failover priorities but the WLCs don't have that option.

Sorry for the confusion - I am actually trying to point one access point to another controller.  When I go to the GUI and change the primary controller IP (of the access point), I am unable to change the "AP Failover Priority".  It is set at "Low" and will not allow me to change it.  I was looking for a CLI command to change the AP Failover Priority.

Thanks

How do you have the WLCs configured?  Are they a true HA pair, or are they N+1, or are you trying to let the AP move to a different WLC entirely (so both WLCs are configured as active)?

Generally if the option is available in the GUI but greyed-out you won't be able to change it in the CLI either.

At the CLI, enable AP Failover Priority...

conf t
ap capwap priority

Open in new window


That should let you choose the priority per AP in the GUI.

In the WLC GUI...

Click on the AP whose priority you want to change.

Click on the AP's High Availability tab

Configure the Primary/Secondary/Tertiary WLC settings

Choose the AP Failover Priority from the dropdown.

Apply the changes.

Is it possible to set the priority via the CLI? (for a 5760 controller)

Ah ok, no probs.  For info...

conf t
ap name <APNAME> priority [1 - 4]

Open in new window


...where 1 = low priority and 4 = critical priority.

The CLI commands worked on my 5760 but the access point is still not migrating to the desired controller.  Is there anything else I can do to force the issue?

Craig BeckCommented:
The WLCs should be in the same mobility group, otherwise the APs will not want to move.

nh6weAuthor Commented:
Does that apply to two controller that are not in any mobility group?

Craig BeckCommented:
Yes, all controllers should have a mobility group configured.
