CAP can't enter static IP address: WLC 2504 ver_8.5.135 to CAP3602I ver_15.3(3)JF8

I've tried everything but I can get the CAP to keep a static ip address.  I've entered it the WLC GUI from the panel shown below, bottom right, from the WLC CLI [(Cisco Controller) >config ap static-IP enable AP1 192.168.170.100 255.255.255.0 192.168.170.1], and from the CAP CLI [# capwap ap ip address 192.168.170.100 255.255.255.0 etc for GW and Prim_Controller].  After reload, it always defaults to 169.254.1.1 but keeps the Fallback Ipv4 192.168.170.100.  But it will not connect to the WLC, after a reboot, until I enter at the CAP "# capwap ap ip address 192.168.170.100 255.255.255.0"

Also the WLC will not work on management vlan 111, it has to be set to vlan 0?

Hi clyde.a.huffman.ctr@mail.mil 

From the AP set the ip to BVI interface.

This is what happens when I restart either the WLC or the CAP to force the CAP to connect - note that the WLC GUI will show 169.154.1.1 GW 169.254.1.254.

You should configure Domain and Name Server from controller CLI/GUI.

Re: CAP can't enter static IP address: WLC 2504 ver_8.5.135 to CAP3602I ver_15.3(3)JF8

Hi Daniel, thanks for answering.  I was looking for a way to enter a BVI ip configuration.  There are so many types of Cisco access points with different commands.... II found "show ip interface bvi1".... Do you know how to configure BVI with CLI commands?

 

This worked!! # capwap ap easy-config done

 

I need to learn more about BVI bridge interface because I'd like to move management to vlan 200 and keep the WiFi on vlan 111.

Hi clyde.a.huffman.ctr@mail.mil 

 

Glad to heard it works. btw I love your topology.

Re: CAP can't enter static IP address: WLC 2504 ver_8.5.135 to CAP3602I ver_15.3(3)JF8

Thanks Daniel, Thanks for your positive feedback.  I'm learning and finally comfortable with the 2504 WLC setup that I have, but there is another thing that I'd like to learn.  How to put the management port on a different vlan (office network) and the guest network vlan on another 2504 port.  The idea is to disable guest network access to the http GUI.  SSH to the WLC would still work from the guest network, but for some strange reason, I trust SSH more than the http GUI?????

 

I'm sure that it has to do with setting up bridge interfaces.... But I don't understand them very well yet.

Re: CAP can't enter static IP address: WLC 2504 ver_8.5.135 to CAP3602I ver_15.3(3)JF8

Most common way of configuring it as "trunk port" on switch end (where WLC connects) & allow wireless vlans across that trunk. . Typically connect both ports of 2504 and act as channel group (mode on as WLC does not support LACP/PAgP )

 

You should disable "Management Via Wireless" under Management tab (This should be disabled by default). In that way you cannot access WLC GUI/CLI from wireless subnets.

Thanks Rasika, just disabled wireless http access :-)  I appreciate your help.  Allan
