WLC 5508 w/ 1042s - Initial Configuration Question

Answered Question
Nov 16th, 2010

I have to do an install from scratch and was looking for some basic suggestions for the configuration. I have a 5508 that I have to tie into 6509.

I have to stand up 16 - 1042 model APs.  I'll be supporting numerous clients - barcode scanners, phones, iphones and laptops with WPA2.  I will have to build 2 WLANs - one for DATA and for a hotspot.

Does anyone have a base configuration they can share for both the WLC and the 6509 configuration?  Does anyone have a "from scratch" build process doc they could share?  Does anyone have a recommended code version ?

I've downloaded the 7.0 Configuration Guide but was hoping to get some real world guideance also.

TIA,

Amir

I have this problem too.

Hi,

Well, starting from the version, 7.0 is the latest so it is good to start from it.

Initial set up of 5508:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/wireless/controller/7.0/configuration/guide/c70mint.html.

I would advise you to read carefully this section where explains the details, and best practice to configure the WLCs ports and interfaces.

Regarding config guides, I would advise you to go through the design guide:

http://www.cisco.com/application/pdf/en/us/guest/netsol/ns279/c649/ccmigration_09186a00808d9330.pdf.

And the configuration examples:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps6366/prod_configuration_examples_list.html.

They are valid for all models of WLC.

They are the basis of the configuration and very good examples.

HTH,

Tiago
