HI there,
We are migrating from RFS6000 to VX9000, an existing WLAN with APs 6521,7522 and 6562.
For adoption all these APs , does promiscuous mode needed on VM adapter or not, and can you please advice for remote sites adoption over Layer 3 , the topology or ports that need to be configured.

Thanks In advance,

Theodore

if you configure a single access interface (management) on the VX 9000 promiscuous mode is not needed.

Thank you for the prompt response, but what if we have  2 VX9000 contollers in cluster mode?

still not needed you will be clustering you should cluster at layer 3.  and mint level 2 assuming you have a multi-site deployment 

eg if you have adopted aps using mint level 2 the cluster should also be at level 2 

We do not support mixed mint links on a controller

set the cluster

cluster name <cluster_name>
cluster mode active (default)
cluster member ip <ip_of_primary>
level <1|2>
cluster master-priority 250
cluster force-configured-state
cluster force-configured-statedelay5

to join a cluster login the secondary box 

use the join cluster command

join-cluster <ip-addrees> user <admin> password <password> level 2
