Hi Alejandro,


Hope all is well with you :) Here is an explanation;


The Service-port Interface is statically mapped by the system only to the physical service port. The service port interface must have an IP address on a different subnet from the Management, AP Manager, and any dynamic interfaces. The service port can get an IP address via DHCP or it can be assigned a static IP address, but a default-gateway cannot be assigned to the Service-port interface. Static routes can be defined in the WLC for remote network access to the Service-port. The Service-port is typically reserved for out-of-band management in the event of a network failure. It is also the only port that is active when the controller is in boot mode. The physical service port is a copper 10/100 Ethernet port and is not capable of carrying 802.1Q tags so it must be connected to an access port on the neighbor switch.


From this excellent WLC doc;

Hope this helps!
