Enable Configuration Persistence

To ensure access point (AP) stability, you can enable configuration persistence.

Without configuration persistence, an AP stores only critical information, such as its static IP address. If the AP loses power, it must connect to the Juniper Mist cloud to access its full configuration and reboot. If it can't connect, it can't reboot.

With configuration persistence, an AP stores its full configuration. If it can't connect to the Juniper Mist cloud, it can reboot from the stored configuration. Configuration persistence also enables an AP to continue providing wireless service even if it loses connectivity to the cloud.

We recommend that you enable AP configuration persistence on your sites.
