Summary

How to gather the backup from a standalone AP

Question

Is it possible to take a backup of standalone AP configuration ?

Resolution

No it is not possible to take a backup of standalone AP configuration today.  

You can gather configuration information and use it to configure a new/factory defaulted AP though.

SSH to an AP and you can determine which WLANs are in use, and details about them.
 

In this example, I have one open auth WLAN on 2.4GHz, and one open and one
WPA2-PSK WLAN on 5GHz of my dual-band 7962 model AP, with no
 VLANs assigned.

 

rkscli: get boarddata                                                  # optional, displays AP model and s/n info
