Attempting to wirelessly bridge two buildings using two 1572-EAC APs and a 9800-L-C. Wired clients in the second building must be able to access LAN in the first building.
So far have the 1572s registered as Mesh APs to the controller. Both APs are in Bridge mode. One is Root, the other Mesh. The Mesh AP can wirelessly register with the Controller via the Root AP.
I've tried setting the Ethernet0 port on the Mesh AP as both an access port and a trunk port, but in either case the switch it's connected to can't ping anything (despite all appropriate SVIs showing up/up on the switch).
However ... I'm now reading documentation which says the APs must be reimaged to Autonomous mode and strictly config'd via the CLI. Is this right? If correct, should one or both APs be placed into Autonomous mode? Or was I on the right track to begin with? Completely confused, and different documentation seems to be telling me to do different things.
Happy to post any shows / configs, etc, as this is strictly in lab right now. Any help would be AMAZING ...
