CLI quickstart Command 45
The command automatically places all ports that are not used for directly
connected MAPs into the default VLAN (VLAN 1).
The quickstart command prompts you for an administrative username
and password for managing the switch over the network. The command
automatically configures the same password as the switch’s enable
password. You can change the enable password later using the
set enablepass command.
CAUTION: The quickstart command is for configuration of a new switch
only. After prompting you for verification, the command erases the
switch’s configuration before continuing. If you run this command on a
switch that already has a configuration, the configuration will be erased.
In addition, error messages such as Critical AP Notice for directly
connected MAPs can appear.
To run the quickstart command:
1 Attach a PC to the WX switch’s serial console port. (Use these modem
settings: 9600 bps, 8 bits, 1 stop, no parity, hardware flow control
2 Press Enter three times, to display a username prompt (Username:), a
password prompt (Password:), and then a command prompt such as the
(Each switch has a unique system name that contains the model number
and the last half of the switch’s MAC address.)
3 Access the enabled level (the configuration level) of the CLI:
4 Press Enter at the Enter password prompt.
5 Type quickstart. The command asks you a series of questions. You can
type ? for more help. To quit, press Ctrl+C.
One of the questions the script asks is the country code. For a list of valid
country codes, see “Specifying the Country of Operation” on page 213.
Another question the script asks is, “Do you wish to configure wireless?”
If you answer y, the script goes on to ask you for SSID and user
information, for unencrypted and encrypted SSIDs. If you answer n, the
script generates key pairs for SSH and the administrative users you
entered, generates a self-signed administrative certificate, and then ends.
