Can I use non-native VLAN for AP management (BVI100 vs. BVI1)

Owning AIR-AP1121G-E-K9 and AIR-AP1131AG-E-K9, with IOS 12.3.8JA2, want to migrate AP (wired) management from native VLAN1 to tagged VLAN100.

Management VLAN must not be accessed by WiFi devices.

Tried to configure fa0.100, bridge 100 and BVI 100 instead of fa0.1, bridge 0.1 and BVI1, reloaded and AP is working, but doesn't respond to management.

Tried to use simple L3 fa0.1, but int is not reachable from outside.

Any suggestions?

Thank you very much

The management VLAN must be the Native VLAN ... it doesn't have to be VLAN 1, but whichever VLAN you declare as Native will be the Management VLAN (at least as far as the AP is concerned) ...

Some switches / routers permit the management and Native VLANs to be different ... verify that both are configured and matching on both ends (AP and switch / router).

Good Luck

Thank you very much!

I configured VLAN100 as native vlan on the trunk on the switch, and configure IP accordingly on AP's BVI1.

Works fine!
