That is the only supported way. Any other way will not work. This goes for any WLC configuration and not just the WiSM. The management interface so you can manange the wlc it is aslo the defaut interface used when an ap first joins the wlc and then the ap-manager is used for the lwapp tunnel. If you have the management and ap-manager interfaces on a different subnet, then you will see a vlan mismatch on the switch. Also it is important to note that both these interfaces need to be native vlan on the trunk port.
You are better off speaking with your local SE regarding the new release.... You know how it is..... dates always change and feature come and go. In my opinion, the 4.2.130 7 4.2.176 are stable code versions. I don't like the 5.x code at all because of the issues I have seen and what others have talked about on this forum. So jumping onto a totally new firmware train is risky seeing how the 5.x code went.
