Good things and H - harvesting, if the AP is connected to the implementation of WLC's loose it, as an autonomous access point. The only problem is authentication. Just remember, if you loacl switch, your SSID is mapped to the local vlan.The switchports AP's will be connected will have to cluster.

Remember to run the 4.2 code if you plan on doing h-reap.

Thanks Fella. This makes sense now.

When you set an AP to H-REAP, the interface you set the SSID to does not matter.  What matters is what vlan you set on the AP when you configure the ap in H-REAP.  Since the SSID you created will be set to local switching, the AP will place user traffic in whatever vlan you map the ssid to locally.  So if you have vlan 10 (192.168.10.x) for voice and vlan 20 (192.168.20.x) for data and you only have these two wlan, then you most likely will put the AP's management interface on native vlan 20 and locally switch the ssid for data to vlan 20.  Vlan 20 locally at the remote site will need to have a DHCP scope to provide users with ip address.Let me know if this helps or not.

Hi, I have found your advice very helpful and also I have found that luckily my circumstance has been resolved by luck. It was only the voice VLAN that was provided with IP addresses locally at the remote sites. All other data VLANs IP adresses(at each site) were provided by 1 central DHCP server which was set on the management interface.My only real point of confusion is whether this would have been a problem if each site had it's own DHCP server. Surely each site needs to specify it's own DHCP server in it's interface if it's DHCP server is different right? Does H-REAP mean that clients ignore the DHCP setting on the interface and obtain IP addresses locally?I really hope this is not s stupid question!Thanks for your helpDH
