Option 42 on the DHCP server or DNS, then once each AP finds the controller, rename them and modify the configuration to match your design.

If not using a controller, install one, copy the config to notepad, change info per AP and paste it back via console.

You can use any option  you like to get the access points to join the WLC.

If the access points are on the same subnet as the WLC then you can stay with basic layer 2 discovery method that what the AP will do is once it gets an IP address if will send a broadcast request on the same subnet to join a WLC and since there is a WLC on the same subnet it will reply back and the AP will be able to join the WLC.

If the access points are on a different subnet then the WLC you need to use a layer 3 discovery method so that the AP can learn the IP address of the WLC that is on a different subnet and send a unicast join request to the specifc IP address.

The options would be option 43 or DNS lockup.

DNS option.

Option 43.
