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.

They are valid for all models of WLC.
They are the basis of the configuration and very good examples.
