vWLC and guest LAN feature

I've stood up an eval version of a vWLC 8.2.161 on a UCS E-series blade.  I'm trying to test/proof of concept  vWLC with a guest wired configuration. This works fine on our physical 5508's, but when I go to create an interface or a WLAN on the virtual WLC, there is no option for GUEST LAN.  Is this by design or am I missing something?

I've looked at the features *not supported* in virtual WLC's, and I don't see this listed explicitly:

  • Cisco Aironet 1850 and 1830 Series APs
  • Internal DHCP server
  • TrustSec SXP
  • Access points in local mode
  • Mobility/Guest Anchor
  • Multicast
  • High Availability
  • PMIPv6
  • EoGRE (Supported in only local switching mode)
  • Workgroup Bridges
  • Client downstream rate limiting for central switching
  • SHA2 certificates
  • Cisco OfficeExtend Access Points

I do see "Mobility/Guest Anchor", but that's not technically what I'm trying to do here.

 

Thanks in advance

Use FlexConnect local switching. Drop the guest users into a guest VLAN (rather than tunneling back via the controller).

I appreciate the feedback.  We currently use FlexConnect for our corporate WLANs, but our guest WLAN (including guest *wired) gets tunneled back to an anchor controller to a dedicated set of firewalls for guests.  I don't think that solution works - not without setting up some PBR, vRF's, etc...
