Wireless Anchor: DHCP Origination?

I am struggling to figure out where the DHCP should originate and the documentation is not offering much insight.

We are using the 4.x code on our controllers and want to establish employee access and guest user access. The DHCP for the employees is easy, but what device should issue DHCP to the guest users. We have a 4402 controller on the inside network and a controller in the DMZ that will be the anchor. Thanks in advance!

The WLC in the DMZ should be the device that is handling the DHCP for the guest net. Make sure the virtual IP's are the same on both WLC, and that the WLAN is anchored to the DMZ WLC, both on the internal, and DMZ WLC.

Re: Wireless Anchor: DHCP Origination?

Do I have to specify a DHCP override ip address on the internal WLC to point to the DMZ WLC's IP address, or is this handled automatically via the tunnel that is created between the two controllers?

Would anything be different if the DMZ WLC was managing the DHCP addresses itself, rather than a DHCP server?

Thanks in advance!
