Saiprasad,

How will the clients be placed into the different VLANs?

If you simply wish to load balance clients in different VLANs you can use VLAN Pooling:



or from the CLI:

L3L_K2_U41_WM1(config-wlan-L3L_dot1x_1)#vlan-pool-member 2202
L3L_K2_U41_WM1(config-wlan-L3L_dot1x_1)#vlan-pool-member 2203

Note: You must also make sure that all VLANs are added to the AP/WM uplink port and switch ports to ensure that the clients have connectivity on the VLANs.
Should the switch port contain both vlans 2202 & 2203 as tagged apart from ap vlan being untagged...... and what about the default ap profile should they carry both vlans as tagged......

Yes, assuming you are locally bridging traffic at the AP and the AP mgmt VLAN is untagged, both client VLANs would be added tagged to the switch port and AP port.  If, the WLAN was tunneled back to the controller then the VLAN tagging would be performed on the WM uplink and corresponding switch port.

For the AP configuration, you can make the client vlan configuration changes either in the AP profile or in the device configuration.  AP profile would be more efficient so that it could be applied to multiple APs at once.
