It's a new installation. No firewalls or ACLs.

router 38xx with WLCM and 1130 APs.

Console into the LAP.

If the LAP can ping the WLC Management IP Address, type the following command from the LAP: lwap ap controller ip address

Hope this helps.

Just worked through this one, if anyone is interested.  The issue with the WLCM, as mentioned in the configuration document is it must have an IP helper-address added for the IP of the LAN (sub)interface the AP is on.  I went a step further and added IP helper-address settings for both the Integrated-Service-Module and the subinterface of the AP management interface on the router.  I also discovered that my switch, even though on the same management VLAN, required the IP helper-address in the VLAN interface to pass the broadcast UDP packets.  Hope this helps someone.
