WLC in two different WAN sites using same DNS

I have two different wlc's that are located in different locations and WAN sites.  I want them to use the same DNS for both sites since there is no need to add a specific server in the small areas.  When adding a DNS entry for "cisco-capwap-controller" for AP discovery, is there a way to make it distinguish which local controller to use?

WLC in two different WAN sites using same DNS

Hi,

We had a similar issue with different controllers in different sites, for different wireless networks. I got around the issue by creating wireless specific subdomains to hold the relevant dns records in.

For example:

Site A = siteA.rf.mycompany.com

     A Record =  cisco-capwap-controller 10.1.1.100

Site B = siteB.rf.mycompany.com

     A Record = cisco-capwap-controller 10.2.2.100

Site C = siteC.rf.mycompany.com

      A Record = cisco-capwap-controller 10.3.3.100
