    Changing the Location of a Device

    The Change Location of Device task is an easy way to move a device address to another building, floor, or wiring closet location within the site. You can move an access point to another floor or to another outdoor area. However, you cannot move an access point to a building or wiring closet. The Change Location of Device task is available whenever you select an assigned device in the Location or Logical views.
