Re: LWAPP changes state to discovery

Does your AP have a valid IP address?

Can the AP ping the WLC Management IP address?

If yes, console into the AP and in enable mode enter the command lwap ap controller ip address

Hope this helps.

Re: LWAPP changes state to discovery

Hi,

the recommended way is:

- Set up an DHCP Pool for your Lightweight APs

- Provide the IP address of an DNS Server and the corresponding domain name through this DHCP Pool

- Add an entry in your DNS Server which resolves the name "CISCO-LWAPP-CONTROLLER" to your WLC's IP address

That way, your AP gets an IP adress and the IP address of your DNS Server. When it tries to resolve "CISCO-LWAPP-CONTROLLER" it gets the IP address of your WLC and joins it.

Or you follow the manual way, like leolaohoo described it.

Greets,

Sebastian
