Long,

You can configure the 4 Controllers to operate in two High Availability (HA) pairs. The APs can then be distributed across the two pairs of WCs.

Hope this helps.

Thanks

Hi Nathiya Munuswamy,
High Availability mode is used for 2 Wireless Controller. My company has 4 WC. Solution to connect 4 WC?
Hi Nathiya,

Is is possible to assign one public IP to HA Wireless controller ?
Currently we set up one controller and manage remote access point via public IP.

Hi,

You can use Netsight Console -> Wireless Manager to manage all controllers from a single place. You still will have 2 Availability pairs. Also, make sure you configure a Mobility Domain, to allow for sessions and roaming to work across all 4 controllers.

From OneView, I don't know if this option to manage all 4 controllers is possible.

Hope it helps.

Hi Long Tran,

Add user guide from Wireless Manager.

Here a link to a very old post with a screenshot of Netsight/Oneview with multiple controller in one browser window. To make it clear.. you still need to configure both contoller pairs separate but could do it in one browser window. It recommend to switch to a VM controller pair instead of 4x C35 if that is possible in your network design.
