Help configuring WLA in static mode with no DHCP-server

‎09-07-2013 04:29 AM

Hi folks,

 

I'm really fed up now,

 

I just can't get this to work, I've read the documentation and still cannot understand what to do to achieve this.

 

Scenario:

 

WLC2, WLA321-WW and a POE switch.

 

The switch is defaulted with vlan1 untagged on all ports, so is the WLC

 

There is no DHCP-server on the network.

 

The problem here is to configure the WLA with static IP and get connected to the WLC, from there I want to be able to configure the WLA further.

 

I configured Auto-ap(had to activate service-profile)

connected WLA directly to the WLC, no go

connected WLA to the switch, no go

 

the only way to get WLC to find the WLA is to enable dhcp server on the WLC

almost any command, setting static ip, boot image needs to have the WLA discovered on the WLC.

 

I also tried to manually configure the WLA on the WLC, connecting to the WLC/SWITCH, no go...

 

What a mess JUNIPER has made here, when will we get a normal and stable system for this...

 

I'm getting very frustrated here,

 

Please advise,

thanks in advance,

 

Regards,

DB

Is there some reason you can't turn on the WLC's DHCP server, let the AP connect, set the boot-configuration, then turn the DHCP server back off?

set ap 9999 boot-configuration ip 192.168.1.100 netmask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.1.1 mode enable
set ap 9999 boot-configuration switch switch-ip 192.168.1.10 mode enable
The other way is to configure the second port on the WLC for direct AP use. You can then leave it connected there, or do the boot-configuration thing before moving it.
set ap 9 port 2 model WLA321-WW poe enable

Hi DB,
Can you distributer not assist you ?
Mike S has given you some good info there.

We have several hundred controllers and almost 10,000 APs.
There isn't a probl with the kit.
If you want basic features with 1 or 2 APs, them you'll be better off with Dlink or similar.
If you want a WiFi network that delivers and performs, then buy Juniper.
