Vlan management with WLC and WCS

Unanswered Question
Aug 1st, 2008

I'd like to know if it is possible to use the same vlan for the management of the WCS and for configuring a wlan?

I try to make this lab and when I declare a dynamic interface that is in the same subnet as the WCS ip address, the reliability between controler and WCS is lost.

I have this problem too.

You should keep your wcs on the smae vlan as your wlc or in your management or server vlan. You shouldn't put the wcs on a vlan that you will have wireless devices on.

I know that I should not put servers on the same vlan as wireless client but I just want to know if it is possible or if Cisco implemented something to avoid this to understand why my lab didn't work with this configuration.

There are issues when the dynamic interfaces attach to a local lan subnet. Best practice is to never have your dynamic interfaces on a subnet where you have wired users.....

Or else you will loose connectivity to your management.
