We are hosting a robotics competition and they require that all of our wireless AP's be disabled for the weekend. I am wondering if there is a way to do this from our management software. Added difficulty: on a per-building basis. So far, I have found that I can do it for an entire controller using the WiSM-2 web interface and disabling the network status of the radios. I can also do it via Prime Infrastructure using configuration templates. Unfortunately, both of these solutions affect ALL access points, nut just one building.

Here's how to do it in Prime Infrastructure 2.0: 1.) Switch to classic theme 2.) Choose Configure -> Lightweight AP configuration templates 3.) Create a new template & edit it 4.) Under the AP Parameters tab check the box for Admin status and leave enabled un-checked 5.) Go the the Select APs tab and choose your APs 6.) Go to the apply/schedule tab and save it, then apply it.
