I?m still involved in the deployment of 55 APs with 3 4402 WLCs in different cities, and I?m still having troubles with failover configuration. I configured APs with static IP, and then configured primary, secondary and tertiary WLC address providing full-qualified names. These names are stored in the master and secondary DNS server, and are resolved flawlessy. Ports in firewalls are opened, so I made several tests, all of them without success.
Then, I got one of the AP and entered in debug mode (with serial cable) and found the issue: DNS queries were sent to broadcast IP (255.255.255.255), not unicast to master DNS.
So that?s my question: Is there any way to set DNS resolution in LWAPP APs working with static IP? If I set them to DHCP, with properly DNS address, I can resolve primary, secondary and tertiary WLC to each AP, but in my deployment I?d prefer to use static addressing.
Thank you in advance,
