I have an AP Group that has around 110 APs in it. They’re all broadcasting a single SSID. This is in an apartment building, we’re using ePSK to provide a separate password for each customer and using client isolation to keep them from talking to each other.
I have been asked to setup another SSID, but only on certain APs (ones physically located close to common rooms / shared meeting areas). Currently, I only want this SSID to be on something like 3-6 APs.
I can add the new SSID to the AP Group, but then all of the 110 APs will broadcast it, which I do not want.
I believe I can set an override at the individual AP level to disable the SSID on the APs that I do not want to broadcast, but that means I will have to manually set that override ~100 times.
Is there any other (better) way to do this? Should I break off the “special” APs that need the extra SSID into their own AP Group? (Will that cause any problems with roaming or auto channel selection/power control, if some of the APs in a building are in a different AP Group than the rest?)
