WLC HA to L2 switch trunk with native vlan 166

WLC is not enterprise grade dhcp server so windows or any other dedicated server would be a better way to go. 

When you say each location will be same ( not for segmentation ). do you mean they will be same subnet or just same vlan with unique subnet ? 

-hope this helps-

Assuming central switching, If can make WLC IPs reachable in every AP VRF, then yes, dhcp process is exchanged over capwap tunnel, doesn’t matter what’s in the underlay. 
On separate note your routing can get a bit complicated, specially if you want laptops to communicate with each other. If you are doing this for segmentation then ISE can provide plenty of resources for segmentation, which you already have. 
may be you want to elaborate what’s driving this design.

Thanks you for reply . 

understood for WLC IP, AP, DHCP 

Switch L3 is not our device. we need to use other party L3 switch  to connect from our main office to branch office. 

each location will be same ( not for segmentation ). 

if we have 2 WLC HA, how can we configure for switch L2 and Switch L3 VRF ? 

for DHCP server, which one the best for this design ? WLC, DHCP on Windows, other option ?
