I got new job in office with 5 AP330s, HMOL, no ID manager, and I am new to Aerohive. We have about 100 devices on the network, and many people know the WPA2 password, including ex-employees. I need advice on best way to transition the primary SSID from a WPA2-PSK to PPSK over the course of a week with the existing password continuing to to work. In addition, I would like to enable the PPSK to MAC address binding, but I don’t think I can do that during the transition since that is set by SSID, not at the PSK user group level. I hope I can turn PPSK-MAC binding on later?
My plan is to have all manually created private PSK users and, during the migration, one “legacy” user with the same password as our current PSK. The SSID will be set to allow at least 100 simultaneous clients per PPSK (which I later want to change to 1 after everyone is migrated).
This process would be simpler if there were not the desire to keep the same SSID, I know. But if anyone has any suggestions how to do this better or a reason why this won’t work, I appreciate the input.
