C9800 WLC flexconnect client vlan into native AP vlan


we want to configure FlexConnect Profile for 3 SSIDs on different access switches. Each access switch has a different native vlan.

  • flexconnect SSID1: vlan 200
  • flexconnect SSID2: vlan 300
  • flexconnect SSID3: the native vlan of the switch, which is varying depending on switch

how can this be configured on the wlc with a common flexconnect profile, without using for each access switch a different flex profile for SSID3?

Access Switch A:

  • native vlan 100
  • switch port configuration for AP port: native vlan 100 for AP
  • trunk allowed vlan on switchport 100, 200, 300


Access Switch B:

  • native vlan 101
  • switch port configuration for AP port: native vlan 101 for AP
  • trunk allowed vlan on switchport 100, 200, 300

as per my views, you need to create new VLAN for SSID3, example VLAN 110

Either use a new VLAN for SSID like @balaji.bandi said otherwise you will need a different profile for each.
