Are the VLAN identifiers configured on the controller interfaces relevant when using H-REAP APs with VLAN mappings?

Correct Answer by Scott Fella about 8 years 10 months ago

That is right. This way you can have various remote locations with the same ssid and different vlan mapping, or even the same. Does this explain it better or did I make it worse.

The vlan identifiers are configured on the interfaces of the wlc. In h-reap, the wlan points to the management interface which should be set to untagged "0". When the ap is set to h-reap mode, that is where you would specify the locally switched vlan id. The native vlan id on the h-reap ap is important though. Management interface of the h-reap ap should be configured for native. Does this answer you question???

Thanks for the quick response. So just to clarify, on WLANs that will be set for HREAP Local Switching, the Interface set for this WLAN will be the Controller management interface?
