Enabling LLDP in Ruckus wireless

Ruckus has finally built in the ability to use LLDP to find Access points. I was so excited when I found this out, I installed the newest firmware and was ready to be blown away – and alas.. no LLDP. So, what was wrong? LLDP is not enabled by default! You have to go into the AP group via CLI and enable LLDP. No biggie.

This feature comes in software version ZDXXX 9.9.0.0.205 GA Software Release .

To enable LLDP – SSH into the zonedirector

Then after logging in run these commands

enable

config

ap-group “System Default”

LLDP enable

exit

exit

Here are some screenshots:

LLDP-3

As you can see, by just doing a “Show” it is disabled:

LLDP-1

After running the command: “LLDP enable”

LLDP-2

And BAM: now I can find my APs no matter where they are plugged in at
