Import AP Config (Prime Infrastructure 3.x)

I recently had a requirement to rename approx 700 new APs, update the location and the WLCs. As the location and Name are unique to each AP a normal Prime template would not suffice.

As the APs did not meet the software requirements of 8.2 in order to utilise APIC-EM (which I am keen to trial for pre-staging) I had to look at another method and found the Import AP Config command within Prime Infrastructure would be the best.

The biggest downside to this vs the APIC-EM was is that I need the APs to be online and seen by Prime prior to being able to push the config.

Steps to complete this command:

1.Configuration / Wireless Technologies / Access Point Radios

2.Import Ap config -> Go
