List lan port speed of APs in HiveManager

Hello,

I have roughly 100 APs in HMOL and I'd like to check that they're all connecting at 1G instead of 100mb.  Is there any easy way to check this from HMOL or do I need to log into each switch?

Thanks.

I would use the CLI window for this. To enable the CLI window on the HM you would need to access the CLI of the HM and issue “_shell cli window”.

Then from the HM GUI they can issue “show int eth0 | inc duplex”. This will show them the speed and duplex that the AP’s are connected at. I suggest you export the results and use shortcuts to find keywords such as “half” and “100”.

AP230-0232c0#sho int eth0 | inc duplex

Operational state=up; Duplex=full-duplex; Speed=1000Mbps;

Craig's answer is spot-on if you have an on-premises HiveManager and therefore can enable the CLI window, but I believe that due to the shared nature of HMOL this is inhibited (the underlying hardware hosts have limits on maximum open sockets, buffers, etc, and we don't want the "noisy neighbor" syndrome where one user consumes all resources and starves others sharing that host).

It may well be easier and simpler for you to query the upstream switches for their port configurations.

Thanks for the replies, however, this isn't overly practical when you have a lot of APs.

I think sticking to checking the switches is probably more practical.
