wlc 5508 management interface vlan - access point vlan

Is it required that the access points are in the same vlan as the management interface on a wlc 5508?

No, it's not required.  So long as there is L3 reachability between the AP VLAN(s) and the Management interface that is what matters.

Steve is right.... just to add, here is a link to a doc that explains the AP join process in both layer 2 and layer 3.

Re: wlc 5508 management interface vlan - access point vlan

One thing I will add. If you use the management interface and not an ap manger. Make sure under the management interface you check box dynamic ap manager.
