Model: ER8411  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.0.3

Question - if I build out my vlan structure and configuration of my router/switches etc before adding them to my Omada controller, will they all be overwritten or defaulted by the controller?  I see that it will let me keep the WAN settings but no indication if the LAN settings will be kept.   I tried adding it once to Omada, it failed and screwed up my router.  Luckily i took a backup and brought back my conifig but at this point, I don't want to try importing again unless I schedule enough downtime to reconfigure everything if the Controller blows it away.

 

Any experience/thoughts would be helpful.  I haven't had this problem with the ER7206 but I also typically add the ER7206 at the same time as the Cloud controller.  This was the first time adding pre-configured units to a controller.

you can configure everything on the controller before adopting the router, so it's pretty hassle-free. 10 min downtime if you have preconfigured everything

Thanks. So if I pre-configure my vlans on the router, it will adopt that vlan configuration without deleting as long as I lave VLAN1 untouched?

NO, all configurason on the router will be deleted, but if you configure the controller with which type of router you have vlan etc. before you adopt, then all this config will be on the router when it has been adopted. you can also set up vpn and more before adopting the router

 

but all the configuration you have done on the router will be deleted when you adopt it to the controller

okay, that is what I suspected. So go in reverse, configure in controller and it will be adopted to router when brought in. Thanks.
