Hi Experts


I got Three Sites ; lets say "A"  "B" "C"

Site A got

25 AP

WLC 5508

authentication is 802.1x


Site B got

15 AP

WLC 5508

authentication is 802.1x


Site C got

25 AP

WLC 5508

authentication is 802.1x


All sites are Interconnected and can be authenticated across the WAN


On Site A I got SSID for users "Wireless_GD" with authentication type 802.1x

We got lot of Roaming users between these sites.  Just having the same SSID name & same authentication type would solve the mobility feature or do I need additional config


kindly input

thanks

That is all you need for users to be able to go from one site to another without having another wireless profile or having to change their wireless profile. I suppose that 802.1x is authenticating to the same domain also.

Thanks for quickly replying.

Root domain for example "XYZ.COM"


Site "A"  child domain : A.xyz.com

Site "B" child domain : B.xyz.com

Site "C" child domain : C.xyz.com


Domain controller Win 2008 R2


On the GUI Interface for WLC

Controller > General

there is option

Default Mobility Domain Name :

RF Group Name :


what is the right setup of these settings

My understanding is

:: Default mobility Domain Name :: should be unique on all sites

:: RF Group Name ::  should be different based on Site Name

Since they are different locations you should keep each site unique. This is an example of what I would do.
