Make sure the AP port on switch is trunk port allowing the VLANs configured on the SSID.

Hi Sanjay,

Thanks for the documentation. I've read it it before actually.
Few questions here:
1) Corporate wifi VLAN gateway (2.2.2.1) is at the core switch. How do I create pool at the vSZ that include that gateway? I can't find the option to do that?
2) For the vSZ connection to the switch, should i set it as an access port or trunk port with native vlan?

Hi Hafiz,

Here the AP will take the pool configured and will act like a DHCP server (depending on the configuration), AP will address the clients request.

You only need to make the AP port as trunk port carrying the VLANS.

Hi Sanjay,

That's great. If I configure the Corporate wifi DCHP pool as below:


Which IP will be the gateway for VLAN2?

Hi Hafiz,

The gateway will be the AP's IP, depending on the config option you choose. There are 3 options as below:
Enable on Each AP.
Eable on Multiple APs.
Enable on Hierarchical APs.

On the link, check from page 374 for more details on how it works.

That's what I thought earlier based on the documentation.
Is there any way I can configure the DHCP pool from the vSZ/AP but I want the VLAN/subnet gateway is on the core switch?
Meaning, the DHCP for users will come from the vSZ/AP but the host/user gateway would be the core switch for communication with other VLANs/networks
