Description (partial)

If we generate a wlan-profile at prime 2.1 with a pre shared key and deploy the profile to NGWC controllers, prime sends following command:

security wpa akm psk set-key ascii clear xxxx

but the correct syntax is:

security wpa akm psk set-key ascii 0 xxxx

so at the next reboot of the controller, the network will be shutdown because the controller ignore the preshared key.

If we manually try to enter that command with "clear" on NGWC, it reports invalid argument:
w-5760-2(config-wlan)#security wpa akm psk set-key ascii clear Cisco123
% Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

PI 2.1 and NGWC.
Deploy WLAN template from PI.
