    Quick Ruckus Question

    As it's the holidays, I need to move the ZoneDirector from its test position on my desk into the server room.
    Unfortunately, the PE dept have got a load of kids in doing BTEC coursework on laptops needless to say they didn't think to tell me... but anyway

    What I need to know is: Do the APs stop working when I unplug the ZoneDirector ?

    My guess is that they'll carry on regardless but I just need confirmation cos I'm a chicken.

    Cheers!

    Yes I will kill the AP's!

    Make sure you have the VLAN's all setup before you move it to the new ports!

    Should only be out for a few mins while you run to the new location!

    I haven't got any set up yet, just an ordinary WLAN for now

    It's only just across the corridor... but I'll make sure there's a patch lead and Power socket ready first, if that's the case!

    As above it will stop the APs from broadcasting, however the Zone Director WILL remember your settings (I have moved mine twice and its done the job nicely still), and its to move a 3rd time this afternoon to my server cab in my new room!

    It doesn't take long to boot up so you should be good to go without any hitches, just let them know it will be down during break / lunch for about 10-15 mins.

    Just going to stick one of the old unmanaged netgear APs in the room where they're working and do it anyway!
