I needed to use DHCP option 82 in my wireless network, but I can't enable this option on WLC526. DHCP proxy enable, auto-anchor mobility is not supported. But I still have in show run-config this:

DHCP Option 82..................Disabled

Could you advise me anything?

Please reconfigure the Device.

config interface dhcp

To configure DHCP options on an interface, use the config interface dhcp command.

config interface dhcp {

ap-manager [primary dhcp_server secondary dhcp_server | option-82 [enable | disable] ] |

management [primary dhcp_server secondary dhcp_server | option-82 [enable | disable] ] |

service-port {enable | disable} |

interface-name name [primary dhcp_server secondary dhcp_server | option-82 [enable | disable] ]}


> config interface dhcp ap-manager server-1 server-2

> config interface dhcp ap-manager option-82 enable

> config interface dhcp service-port enable

Thank you for the answer.

Unfortunately I haven't this command in WLC526's CLI. I suppose that reason following:

"The WLC526 controller is simple to install and operate; therefore, the controller CLI consists of a limited number of primarily show and debug commands." (extract from Cisco 500 Series Wireless Express Mobility

Controller Configuration Guide).

These commands available:

(Cisco Controller) > config ?

advanced Advanced Configuration.

(Cisco Controller) >config advanced ?

802.11a 802.11a parameters.

802.11b 802.11b parameters.
