I have a WLC 2006 running 4.2.130 code with AP1020s.
I also have several users that have VMware machines that run various flavors of Linux, etc Virtual Machines on Windows XP Pro.
The Windows XP works fine on the wireless. It is the VMWare Virtual Machine running the âBridgedâ ethernet connection that have problems.
The problem is that the Virtual Machine doesn't get a DHCP IP address from the wireless network.
If the user plugs into the wired network all works fine.
I have done some captures that show the DHCP requests going out with the MAC address of the wireless client, but no DHCP replies.
It looks like the WLC is seeing the additional DHCP requests from the MAC address of the wireless adapter and dropping them.
The same DHCP server (different scopes) are used for both wireless and wired clients.
The DHCP server shows NO activity when the Virtual Machine tries to get a DHCP IP address.
The DHCP server is a Cat 6500 running IOS v12.2(33)SXH. DHCP activity was monitored using debug IP dhcp server events/debug IP dhcp server packets.
The VMWare Workstation tried is 6.02-6.04.
Any ideas on this?
