Could not discoverWLC using DHCP - cisco WLC2504 and AP CAP1602i
I have setup my lab with a MGMT static IP 10.250.0.xx on port 1
On port 2 I create an interface Vlan 99 that connects to my test DHCP on 192.168.1.xx
I can setup my access point , because it says could not contact wlc via dhcp. I need to force the AP to contact the controller on vlan 99 but the MGMT is on another net , only static.
DOes Cisco need to have a DHCP server on MGMT network? for the AP´s contact the Cap controller?
If i setup my MGMT to be on a network that as DHCP everything works. BUt in real enviroment the management does not have DHCP, so how can I set up my AP to be in the same MGMT network that controller is and all my Wireless clients to get dhcp from vlan 99 interface on port 2 of the controller ?
You have to have DHCP setup somewhere. You can setup DHCP subnet on the WLC to hand out addresses on your management VLAN or set it up on an IOS or DHCP server elsewhere. You need someway for the APs to get a DHCP address. If you want them on a separate subnet then you will need to configure DHCP options to point them at your controller. For simplicity I prefer to keep them all on the same VLAN and subnet. Here is a link about the DHCP options for lightweight APs

This is the start of a display filter cross reference between Wireshark and OmniPeek.
The 1st installment is a table of advanced filters. More filters will be added as time allows.

I have created a Powershell script to automatically add a Wireless Guest User on Cisco WLCs. (tested on 2500 Series)
The script should be completely self explanatory.
