Add Real Devices with Quick Onboarding

Select + > Quick Add Devices and perform the following steps:

  1. For Device Type, select Real.
  2. For Entry Type, select Manual and enter Extreme Networks device serial numbers or Dell service tags in the field to the right, or select CSV and import a .CSV file with a list of device serial numbers or service tags. If you select Manual, the ExtremeCloud IQ attempts to detect your device automatically when you submit the serial numbers and displays the detected device make in a separate field. If ExtremeCloud IQ cannot detect the device make from the serial number, then it prompts the admin to select a device make manually.
  3. Select your location from the pick list. You cannot create a new location in the Quick Add process; you must select an existing location.
  4. To assign an existing network policy to the devices, choose one from the Add Policy drop-down list (optional).
  5. Select Add Devices.
  • To add a device that was previously onboarded using an earlier version of ExtremeCloud IQ or Extreme Management Center, you must first delete the device from the older version. In these instances, you will see an alert.

Add Real Devices with Advanced Onboarding

To add Extreme Networks or Dell EMC devices, select + > Advanced Onboarding and follow these steps:

  1. For Device Type, select Real.

  2. Enter the serial numbers or device service tags (Dell devices only) manually in the first field, separated by commas, or:

  3. Import a CSV (comma-separated-values) file by either dragging a file into the second field, or browse for a file by selecting Choose. For more information, see "CSV File Format"

  4. Assign a network policy (optional). Select an existing network policy from the drop-down list or create a new network policy. For detailed instructions about how to configure network policies, see "Network Policy Settings".

  5. Select Next, and then select Finish.

CSV File Format

Your .csv file must have at least one field that contains the serial numbers or service tags. Add a second field for the model numbers of the devices. For example:

Serial Number or Service Tag Only:

01221234567890

01221234567891

01221234567892

Serial Number or Service Tag, and Model Number:

01221234567894, AP350

01221234567895, AP410

01221234567896, AP630

  • If possible, avoid using spread sheet applications such as Excel to create or modify a .csv file. Excel formats serial numbers that contain preceding zeros incorrectly. Many applications interpret the serial number as a numeric value, which can cause the preceding zeros to be lost and the value to be represented in scientific notation, requiring you to use special functions or convert the cell content type. Instead, use a text editor that does not format the contents.

Add Simulated Devices with Quick Onboarding

To add simulated devices, select + > Quick Add Devices, and perform the following steps:

  1. For Device Type, select Simulated.
  2. In the device model drop-down list, choose a model, and enter the number of devices to add. Repeat this step to add different models.

Show Memory: See the total amount of memory, and the amounts of free, used, buffered, and cached memory for the selected device.

Show PSE: View the power management settings for PSE (power source equipment) for the selected device.

Get Tech Data: (Applies to switches only.) This element displays the output from the show tech-support response. Select the check box for a switch for which you want to retrieve technical information and select Get Tech Data. Once ExtremeCloud IQ retrieves the data, you can save the .tar.gz file to a local directory. To view the logs in a text editor, you must first expand the .tar.gz file with a file compression and decompression program.

Restart PSE: (Applies to switches only.) You can restart the PSE (power sourcing equipment) function on Extreme Networks PoE (Power over Ethernet) switches. A warning statement appears after you select Restart PSE. When you select Yes, the switch briefly stops supplying PoE on all PoE-enabled ports, and then re-applies PoE. All devices receiving PoE from the switch are power cycled.

Reset Device to Default: You can reset one or more selected devices to their default configuration. A warning statement appears after you select Reset Devices to Default. When you select Yes, the operation removes all existing settings (except bootstrap settings) and reboots the selected devices.

Manage Device License: Two sub-functions are available to activate or revoke a device license. This operation includes both Premier and MACsec class licenses.

Privilege Mode: (Applies to switches only.) From the privileged EXEC mode, you can switch to the Global Configuration and VLAN modes. You can enable password-protected access to the privileged EXEC mode and set a password.

Spectrum Intelligence: (Applies to APs only). Spectrum intelligence provides a live view of the RF (radio frequency) environment to help you plan for future WLAN deployment or troubleshoot WLAN issues such as high retransmission rates caused by device interference or slow connections due to overuse. There are two main spectrum intelligence functions: providing a graphical rendering of the RF environment in an FFT (fast Fourier transform) trace and swept spectrogram and identifying interfering devices such as cordless phones and microwave ovens. The number of devices that can perform a spectral scan concurrently varies depending on which ExtremeCloud IQ platform you use. IQ Virtual Appliance limits the number of concurrent scans to two (that is, only two APs can perform spectrum analysis functions simultaneously). The physical appliance allows for ten concurrent scans, while ExtremeCloud IQ permits up to 20 concurrent scans.

  • To use the spectrum intelligence feature, you must have at least one SSID configured on your WLAN on at least one AP running ExtremeCloud IQ 11.28 and IQ Engine 8.0 or later.

To start spectrum intelligence scanning, perform these steps:

  1. Select the check box for up to five supported APs, then select UTILITIES.
  2. From the UTILITIES drop-down list, select Spectrum Intelligence. A message warns you that performing this function can affect performance. To continue, select Yes to see the analysis panel, containing a status bar, a graphical analysis feedback section and the interference report. For more details, see "Spectrum Intelligence".

While an AP is performing spectrum Intelligence analysis, appears next to the device name in the devices list. Select this icon to see details. When you stop the scan, this icon disappears.

  • During the brief intervals of sampling, no data transfer occurs. However, if the AP is very busy processing wireless traffic (that is, it has a high duty cycle), sampling and analysis can subtly impact the performance. Any analysis that monitors multiple channels must accommodate the added time needed for the scanning interface to switch channels.

Status: (Applies to APs only.) The Status utility displays the following:

Advanced Channel Selection: This shows the interface name, whether the channel is enabled or disabled, the specific channel, the power control state, and the transmit power level in dBm.

Interface: Shows a table listing interface details including the device name, MAC address, state, channel, authorized VLAN, hive ID, and the SSID. To see details for a specific interface, select the interface in the drop-down list at the top of the dialog box.

Wi-Fi Status Summary: Displays channel number, power, authentication mode, associated time, user profile ID, SSID name, and other information gathered from a device that has a currently active connection to ExtremeCloud IQ Connect or ExtremeCloud IQ. This operation is not supported for simulated devices or devices that require a complete configuration update.

When updating devices, You can perform a full or delta configuration update, or update to the latest version of IQ Engine (APs only). You can also choose when devices reboot after an update is complete so that rebooting occurs during a period when the brief interval during which connectivity is lost causes the least disruption to network users.

  • When updated, ExtremeCloud IQ Connect or ExtremeCloud IQ Pilot displays the progress of the update in the Updated On column of the Device list.

Select the check box for the device or devices you want to update, and then select UPDATE DEVICES. Make the following selections and then select Perform Update. To save your update preferences as the default setting, select Save as Defaults.

Update Network Policy and Configuration: Select to update the network policy, configuration, and application signatures on your devices, and then choose either a Complete Configuration Update (a complete configuration update and reboot), or Delta Configuration Update(an update of the changes since the last configuration update. Devices do not automatically reboot after a delta configuration update.)

Upgrade IQ Engine: Use this option to upgrade the IQ Engine image on selected devices. Choose from the following options:

Upgrade to the latest version: Select this option to upgrade the selected devices to the latest IQ Engine version on multiple device models.

  • The following option is only available when you select a single device or when you select multiple devices that are all the same device model.

Upgrade to the specific IQ Engine version: This option allows you to upgrade the IQ Engine version on a single device or for multiple devices. Choose an image file from a drop-down menu of IQ Engine releases for the selected device (or devices)and multiple devices of the same model. Use this option to downgrade a device (or multiple devices) by selecting an older version of IQ Engine than what is currently running on the device. To add a local IQ Engine image from your PC to the drop-down list, select Add/Remove, and then Choose in the dialog box. Image file names can contain up to 64 characters without spaces, and must have an extension of ".img" or ".img.S". Use Add/Remove to remove an image file that you uploaded locally, select the image file, and then select .

Upgrade even if the versions are the same: Select this option to update a device to a patch release, or if you have several IQ Engine versions running on the same device model, such as the SR2124P, and you want to upgrade all of them to the same IQ Engine version.

Activation Time After Complete Configuration Uploads or IQ Engine Upgrades

Activate at next reboot (requires rebooting manually): Select to activate the IQ Engine upgrade from ExtremeCloud IQ to the device at the next reboot of the device.

Activate after 5 seconds: Select to enter the number of seconds (from 5, which is the default, to 300) before the IQ Engine upgrade occurs.

Activate at the following time according to the system clock on the updated device: When you select this option, two pull-down menus appear— one for the date and a second one for the time of day. Set the date and time of day you want.

  • When you select Upload, the devices are rebooted automatically. Rebooting devices momentarily disconnects any associated clients from the SSID, which could be disruptive to your network.
