RUCKUS ZD1200 Configuration Guide

Hi Guys,
I have been tasked with the configuration of a RUKUS ZD1200 to control 2 Access Points.
I have never configured this controller before, can you please direct me to a site or a document where I can see step by step configuration instructions?

Hi Guys,
I had to go ahead and configure my new RUCKUS ZD1200 Wireless Controller following the manufacturer instructions.

For the most part the instructions work well if you are setting up a configuration from scratch which was not my case.

In my case I already had 1 Wireless Access Points independently configured with users connected to them.

Now I will make this comment so that may somebody else can help somebody else in the future.

It turns out that when you connect the controller to the network it will proactively look for the connected access points and add them to the controller effectively disconnecting all the users, so my advice is if you already have users configured and connected to your Access Points do not connect the controller to the network, first configure it using a cross over cable or a testing network and then when everything is configured request a Window and make plans to help everybody reconnect after the Window has been completed.

Other than that it works great.
