Hi Team , 

 

What are the different methods we have to add Access points to WLC ?

1. Set Option 43 in DHCP telling the AP where the controller is. (It needs to be done in Hex)

2. Put the AP on the same broadcast domain (VLAN) as the controller.

1. Set Option 43 in DHCP telling the AP where the controller is. (It needs to be done in Hex) 

=> This has to be configured in WLC controller ? Where can I find the these option ..Can you tell me the path .

- Option 43 is in your DHCP server, not the controller.

or..  DNS,  The hard-coded url is: cisco-lwapp-controller, cisco-capwap-controller.

the AP will find the all the wlc's and touch each and everyone.  It will land on the one with the most seats open.

then you movei to the desired target.
