One WLC AIR-CT2504-K9 for Main office and 3 Branches

Hi ,


I need to configure a WLC AIR-CT2504-K9 with the followings requiremets:

1.- There is a main officce where the WLC and 7 LAPs will be installed.
2.- There are 3 branches; one LAPs in every branch  will be installed.
3.- SSIDs for internal users and guest will be the same in each office.

Is it possible to set this scenario ?? (see complete info in table)

In the past I configure some WLC 2100 but I noticed some difference with this new WLC-CT2504

one of the differences that kept my attention were regarding ap-manager interface (not shown)
and virtual interface ( shown as NOT SUPPORTED)

Should I set ap-manager interface or is enough with managment interface ?
why the message "Not support" in virtual interface ??

How can I use one port for two interfaces (as is proposed in table), if I try to do this a message error is displayed
"Error setting AP Manager interface".

iF I set one interface and associate to one port (Enable) I can not set second interface in the same port so remains disable


This model of WLC just has 4 Ports.

I have read last config guide but is not clear for me because there is no examples of this kind of scenario.

Yes, the management interface should be set for Dynamic AP-Manager.

As of 7.2 HREAP has been rebranded to be FlexConnect, I really need to start using that more I guess, but it's the same functionality.

AP-Manager for the 2500 is now OPTIONAL.

Hi Leo,

Thanks for your comment. What about virtual interface? ; why is shown as NOT supported?

as far as I know in WLC 21XX was used for DHCP propagation ,  for this new model what is used for DHCP propagation

You still have a virtual interface that required and is part of the startup configuration wizard. That has not one away.

That all looks good.

     The Virtual is still required as Scott mentioned, and as Leo mentioned, the AP-Manager is not needed as a seperate interface with the 5508/2504/WiSM2. 

With the 2504, you only need to use one port for all connectivity,  But, you could use a second port for the guest network if you want to force them into a seperate VLAN/DMZ port.

     Everything else looks fine.  Your remote sites will be HREAP, so none of there traffic will be coming back, unless you put the guest network as central instead of locally switched.

Hi Steve,

Thanks for your info.

I notice this new model does not show HREAP mode (I attach screenshot), Bridge mode option will be the one I could use?.

Managment interface should be enable as Dynamic AP Managent?.

Yes, the management interface should be set for Dynamic AP-Manager.
