1131 ap cannot register to WLC

Unanswered Question
Feb 20th, 2007

Hi all,

AP model is 1131 ver 12.3(11)JX1

WLC model is 2006 ver

Router as a dhcp server

ip dhcp pool DHCP_Pool



option 43 ascii ""

The ap can obtain ip address and can ping to wlc ( However, it cannot register to the wlc.

If I use below command on AP, the ap can register to wlc.

lwapp ap controller ip address

But I don't want to config each ap with the command.

Any way to solve the register issue?


I have this problem too.

Domain name being passed down with DHCP should be checked because when the AP tries to resolve the DNS name CISCO-LWAPP-CONTROLLER.localdomain it will add the domain name it received from dhcp. If this is not configured then the AP will not be able to fully resolve the name and obtain the management IP of the WLC.
