Cannot change AP One device name

All my AP One access points are managed from Balance 580. I wanted to rename my access points to custom names so that it’s easy to identify and manage centrally. There’s no option from Balance 580 so I tried configuring from individual access point web administration, which has an option to do exactly that.

However, after “Save to flash and activate” and rebooting, all changes are lost and I get default name like AP_ONE_D606. It works when not centrally managed from Balance 580 but the moment I switch to centrally controlled mode, doesn’t work. Is it a bug or by design?

Hi Shaolin,

You can find the device info from WLC for changing the AP name. I have made a screen capture below for reference.
