second ssid interface

Hi,

On an existing controller HA setup an ssid "PPS-WL" exists. We want to test another ssid over the same set of AP's.

Can we setup another ssid "WPS-WL" & attach it to the same interface as PPS-WL ? or do i need a dedicate interface for this new ssid?

Another query is , both controllers are in AP-SSO mode. I have read internal wlc dhcp doesn't work in SSO mode.

In that case, should the small dhcp pool need to be created on connected switches or is there any other way?

Thanks in advance.

DHCP preferably would be on a dedicated dhcp server.  As long as dhcp proxy is enabled, the WLC will proxy the dhcp request.  If dhcp proxy is disabled, then you need ip helpers on your layer 3 interface.

Thanks,

Re: second ssid interface

Yes you can use an existing interface. If you do choose or create a new interface, you need to provide dhcp for that subnet as you already know that the WLC in ap SSO doesn't allow internal dhcp.

Thanks. So the dhcp will have to be on a different device & WLC will relay the dhcp request to it. Is that the correct way in AP-SSO mode?
