How can I determine whether an AP is qualified

1

1. If the AP is in any state except fault, for example, normal and download, the AP is qualified.

NOTE:
The preceding method applies to the scenario where an AP is added offline, for example, the AP is generated using configuration file or is manually added offline. If the AP is not added offline but you can still view information about the AP on the AC, the AP is working properly regardless of its status.

2. Observe whether the AP indicator works normally. See description of indicators in installation guide of the packaging to determine whether AP indicators are working properly.

3. You can determine whether an AP is qualified by logging in to the AP. Before the login, ensure that the network cable used to connect to the AP is working properly.
NOTE:
If the AP needs to connect to an Ethernet switch, ensure that the Ethernet cable is working properly. If the Ethernet cable is not working properly, for example, RJ-45 connectors are short-circuited, the AP may fail to be powered on or fail to work properly. Before connecting an Ethernet cable to the AP, use the cable test tool to check whether the cable is qualified. If the cable is unqualified, replace it.

a. Check whether you can log in to the AP through the serial interface and enter the CLI.
Connect the AP and PC using the serial cable.
- Log in to the AP through the serial interface. On the AP serial interface, the baud rate is 9600 bit/s, the data bit is 8, the stop bit is 1, and there is no parity bit.
- If the login succeeds, the AP is working properly.

b. Check whether you can use a command to log in to the AP through the serial interface.
NOTE:
The default IP address of the AP is 169.254.1.1.
Enter the default user name admin and initial password admin@huawei.com.
- Assign the PC with an IP address on the same network segment as the default IP address of the AP. Connect the network cable to the AP and PC.
- Log in to the AP using Telnet.
If the login succeeds, the AP is working properly. If the login fails, reset the AP to restore the factory settings. Then, log in to the AP again.

How to determine whether an AP is faulty
Determine whether an AP is faulty using the following methods: 1. Check whether the AP indicators are in normal state. For description of AP indicators, see Indicator Description in the Hardware Installation and Maintenance Guide of an AP. 2. Log in to the AP through the console port, Telnet/STelnet, or the web system, and check whether the login succeeds. Fit APs do not support the web system. - If the login succeeds, the AP works properly. - If the login fails, restore the factory settings of the AP by holding down Default, and then log in to the AP again. If a Fit AP has been added to an AC offline, run the display ap all command on the AC to view the AP state. If the AP state is normal or download but not fault, the AP works properly.

Method used to determine whether ECC traffic is too heavy
When the network scale is too large, the ECC communication traffic between NEs might be too heavy for the NE processing capability and cause the SCC boards to reset frequently. First, check the network scale. The number of NEs on the network must be less than 100. If the network scale exceeds the number, subnet the ECC network and set up a DCN management channel for each subnet. Second, check the scale of each site. When multiple devices are connected through a hub (or through subrack cascading) to communicate with each other through the extended ECC function of the network ports, the size of the extended ECC network (the total number of servers and clients) cannot be greater than 8. Otherwise, the NE may be reset. When the number of servers and clients is smaller than or equal to 4, either automatic or manual mode can be used. When the number is greater than 4, the manual mode is recommended.

How do I obtain an AP's location
To obtain an AP's location, perform the following operations: 1. Run the following command on an AC to obtain the AP's IP address and MAC address. - V200R005: display ap-run-info id xx - V200R006: display ap run-info { ap-name ap-name | ap-id ap-id } 2. Run the display mac-address x-x-x command on the AC to obtain the MAC address of the connection interface. 3. Run the display mac-address x-x-x command on the peer end to obtain the MAC address of the interface on the access switch connected to the AP.
