I have inherited a wireless system. I need to add a few APs. I have no idea how to do this. I have plugged the AP into a port set to the correct VLAN. The AP is receiving an IP address from DHCP in the correct range. I have a laptop plugged into the console of one of the new APs and I have launched a session in Putty terminal emulator. What are the next steps I need to take? 

Details from an AP already in the WLC: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Fsd_wiFmUmbuIgOJq_zb2yU-OnWund6Dmj7f1ceBoew/edit?usp=sharing 

Here is what Putty displays:

*Mar  1 17:42:31.061: %DHCP-6-ADDRESS_ASSIGN: Interface BVI1 assigned DHCP address, mask, hostname APacf2.c50a.54cb

Translating "CISCO-CAPWAP-CONTROLLER.hardinnorthern.local"...domain server (

*Mar  1 17:42:38.434: %CAPWAP-3-ERRORLOG: Did not get log server settings from DHCP.

What worked was adding 241 AP identifier scope option to DHCP for controller management. I don't think this is in that document. I believe there is a youtube vid out there that explains it well.
