I currently use the internal DHCP server of our 4402 WLC. We also have a WiSM module as well. For the most part the internal DHCP server of the WLC works ok.
1. Is there anyway to setup option 43 in the WLC DHCP server? If possible I assume it would be from the CLI? No reference to this in the manuals.
2. I have noticed we see AP IP conflicts if we ever reboot the WLC that is running its internal DHCP server. It appears the internal DHCP server forgets IP assignments on reboot and will pass out an already in use IP address. Is this normal and if so for the DHCP server do all work that way?
I have setup a Windows 2008 DHCP server that I was going to phase in for AP DHCP assignments. I have the document to setup option 43 but it doesn't cover Windows 2008 server which looks to have different screens for this. I have been reading the Cisco document about setting up option 43 and trying to translate to Windows 2008 DHCP. I have Cisco 1131, 1142, and 1252s APs. Do they all use the same VCI?
I have been considering going to static IPs and just setup a small scope with only a couple addresses and use it to setup new APs out of the box then assign them and IP once that attach to a WLC.
