How often LAP in L3 LWAPP mode performs a broadcast LWAPP DISCOVERY?

Unanswered Question

How often LAP in L3 LWAPP mode performs a broadcast DICOVERY UDP port 12223?

During the boot or even during its regular operation?

I saw that the AP is running the broadcast or to be more precise to arrives WLC LWAPP DISCOVERY REQUEST only

when booting the AP.

It is correct?

Regards.

Mirko Severi.

I have this problem too.

You should only see discovery request when an AP boots until it joins a controller or if it is on its secondary controller and sees its primary is back online.

Dan,

in this case, the AP does not generate a broadcast, but only a unicast to the primary controller with the IP found in NVRAM.

In a network L3 must enable broadcast via helper-address when the AP does not have WLC primary, secondary, tertiary configured, because otherwise you must configure in the AP through the console, option 53 or DNS the Ip address of the controllers.

Is correct?
