What VLAN should the management interface be in on a 4400 controller?

Unanswered Question
Mar 22nd, 2007


Some documentations put the management interface on a 4400 controller into a regular tagged VLAN. But some documentations put it in an untagged Native VLAN, the tag=0. What is the difference? Which configuration is optimal?



I have this problem too.

The answer is "it depends" :-)

I would not say any particular config is optimal though. If you have an established VLAN for management interfaces, I would use that. However if you put the management interface in the same VLAN as your AP's, AP's find your controllers easier. Otherwise you can use DHCP to point AP's to controllers.

I prefer to tag the frame as to which VLAN it belongs to, even if that is the same as the native VLAN.
