I have a customer who wants to have a couple of sites managed by a WLC on each one. The quirk is that he wants to have the Access Points register to the remote controller if the local one fails.
The quick question is, can I set up the AP's to work on local mode and then switch to FlexConnect when they connect to the remote WLC? Or should I use FlexConnect even locally so that the AP's go to the remote WLC and nothing changes? Any comments on AP groups or Flexconnect groups as well?
I haven't find any info on this and I can't do tests on the customer site yet.

NO, It won't work like that. You have to set AP mode either to Local or FlexConnect.
Should I use FlexConnect even locally so that the AP's go to the remote WLC and nothing changes?
If you use FlexConnect mode if WLC is not reachable AP goes into standalone mode. I think what you should do is deploy AP in local mode with HA configured in each AP to pointing primary as branch WLC & secondary as HQ-WLC. Only drawback is when branch WLC is down traffic is tunnel back to HQ & you have to similar SSID configuration settings in both HQ & Branch.

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.
