Set Up CVW on CV

This section describes the process to:

Setup CVW on a Standalone CV

CVW is disabled by default.

To enable CVW, perform the following steps:

  1. Log in to the CV admin shell via the cvpadmin user.
  2. Enter e to edit the settings. The CV configuration wizard is launched.
    Note: If you are setting up CV for the first time, you need to enter the values for all the settings (DNS, IP addresses, etc.) in the configuration wizard. Refer to the Shell-based Configuration for information on these settings. If you have already set up or just upgraded CV, and you only want to enable CVW, go to Step 3.
  3. Set the CloudVision WiFi Enabled option to Yes.

  4. Once the cursor is at the bottom of the configuration wizard, enter a to apply the configuration changes.

Set Up CVW on a CV Cluster

A few important points about the CVW service in a cluster deployment:
  • CVW is disabled by default.
  • For a CV cluster, you first need to Figure 2 and then Set Up CVW on Secondary and Tertiary Nodes.
    Note: The CVW service runs only on the primary and secondary nodes, but you need to apply the configuration changes to all the nodes, including the tertiary node. The CVW service starts on both nodes only after the setup on all the nodes (including the tertiary node) of the cluster has been completed.
  • The CV configuration wizard consists of two parts (Figure 2):
    • common configuration: Settings common to all the nodes in the cluster (For example, DNS and services such as CVW).
    • node configuration: Settings specific to a node (For example, Hostname and IP settings).

Enable CVW on Primary Node

To enable CVW on the primary node, perform the following steps:

  1. Log in to the CV admin shell via the cvpadmin user.
  2. Enter e to edit the settings. The CV configuration wizard is launched.
    Note: If you are setting up CV for the first time, you need to enter the values for all the settings (those belonging to the common configuration as well as the node configuration). Refer to Shell-based Configuration and Shell Reconfiguration of Single-node, Multi-node Systems for information on these settings. If you have already set up or just upgraded CV, and you only want to enable CVW, go to Step 3.
  3. You can optionally assign a CloudVision WiFi HA Cluster IP.
    Figure 2. Enable CVW on Primary Node
    Note: CloudVision WiFi in HA mode configures an optional IP address, known as HA cluster IP that is automatically assigned to the active node in a cluster. Ensure that the HA Cluster IP address is different from the IP addresses of the actual device and cluster interfaces; but belongs to the same subnet as the Device Interface IP addresses of primary and secondary nodes. If HA cluster IP is not configured, IP addresses of both primary and secondary nodes must be configured on access points.
  4. Set the CloudVision WiFi Enabled option to Yes.

Set Up CVW on Secondary and Tertiary Nodes

To set up CVW on the secondary and tertiary nodes, perform the following steps on the respective nodes:

  1. Log in to the CV admin shell via the cvpadmin user.
  2. Enter e to edit the settings. The CV configuration wizard is launched.
    Note: The Shell-based Configuration settings are not editable on the secondary and tertiary nodes. If you are setting up CV for the first time, you need to enter the values for all the Shell Reconfiguration of Single-node, Multi-node Systems settings. If you have already set up or just upgraded CV, and you only want to enable CVW, go to Step 3.
  3. Press Enter until the cursor reaches the bottom of the configuration wizard, past all the settings.
  4. Once the cursor is at the bottom of the configuration wizard, enter a to apply the configuration changes.
    Note: Whether CloudVision WiFi Enabled is set to Yes or No, applying the configuration changes causes the secondary and tertiary nodes to update their settings based on the primary node. This will start the CVW service on the primary and secondary nodes.
