Disconnecting master AP less 1 minute

New Contributor II

Hello Team,


I am very newbie with ruckus.  We have a place with 14 APs, master AP with wlan services disabled.

I need to disconnect Master AP just many seconds to change the cable with another longer.   Then I will need to enable wlan services (I think I know how to do this)

I read this:

But I dont know how long does it take to boot the Master AP.  So I do not know what are the risks on doing this.

All APs are with DHCP and Management Interface is not enabled (I dont know what does it means yet)

I neither have experience with this.  So I have many questions:

* What do you think will happen? 

* How long users will not connect to SSIDs?

* When the current master AP is online again, this will be master again?

* Somethink to have in mind?

* Any recommendation?


Thanks in advance.





Hi @damianhlozano 

Hope you are going well ! 

RUCKUS Unleashed is a high-performance, simple-to-setup, easy to-manage and affordable portfolio of access points. With built-in controller functionality, there’s no need to invest in a separate appliance ( controller ) .

Based on this technology Controller-less WLAN solutions, if the master AP goes down for some reason, a member AP will become the master to keep the network up.

Also we can setup or select the primary Master AP and Secondary preferred :

 When the primary Master AP is offline, the secondary preferred Master will assume the Master role. When the primary preferred Master returns online, it will resume the role again once it rejoins the Unleashed network.

The management interface is a interface or an IP assigned to this management interface that allow the administrator to manage the Unleashed network from a single IP address, regardless of which Unleashed AP is currently the Unleashed Master Access Point IP.

Lets says an example my Master Access Point has an IP address so I can access to the unleashed admin page using but if I  configure an IP from the same subnet as the Access Points lets say as the management interface I can access to the admin page using regardless of what IP the Master has or if it changes to another IP or changes Role therefore the master is another IP.

Here is more details about this feature :
