Accessing CloudVision Wifi

You can access the CloudVision Wifi (CVW) service via either the CLI Access or the UI Access.

CLI Access

To log in to the wifimanager container using CLI, run the /cvpi/apps/wifimanager/bin/wifimanager.sh cli 2>/dev/null command on the primary or the secondary node.

Figure 1. CLI Access

You can now run wifimanager commands. See theWifimanager CLI Commands for a list of wifimanager CLI commands and their descriptions.

UI Access

The URL to access the wifimanager UI is http(s)://<CVP-IP>/wifi/wifimanager is where CVP-IP refers to the actual CloudVision Portal (CVP) IP/domain name.

The URL to access the cognitive Wifi UI is http(s)://<CVP-IP>/wifi/aware where CVP-IP refers to either the actual CVP IP or domain name.

For example, if the IP address of CVP is 10.12.3.4, then the URL to access the wifimanager UI is https://10.2.3.4/wifi.wifimanager and the cognitive Wifi UI is https:////10.12.3.4/wifi/aware.

You can access CVW UI by clicking on the WiFi tab in the CVP UI, or you can access it directly using the URLs of either wifimanager UI or Wifi UI.

Figure 2. UI Access

When you access the UI for the first time, you need to apply the CVW service license.

Figure 3. CVW Service License
Note:
  • For the license file, please write an email to support-wifi@arista.com
  • Use the ifconfig command on the CV root shell to get the eth0 MAC addresses of the primary and secondary CV servers (you need not access the wifimanager CLI for this). You need to include both these MAC addresses when you email support to request a license. One license is generated for the two (primary and secondary) MAC addresses.

Once you apply the license, you must log in to the CVW UI using the following default credentials:

Username: admin

Password: admin

You can then change the password and add other users.

Note: You can now also connect Arista access points to the server.
