Hi Niyas -

I run this setup in my environment; two VX9000s (Primary and Seconday) and 600+ 7502s. We do the following:
  • Use DHCP reservations for the APs to pull an IP address
  • Use DHCP option 191 for the APs to discover the contoller (see section 2.8 of http://www.michaelfmcnamara.com/files/motorola/WiNG_5X_How_To_NOC.pdf)
  • Create an AP7502 profile in WiNG. Configure the Controller Hostnames option under the Adoption page.
  • Create an Auto-Provisioning Policy to have the AP7502s automatically pull the proper profile to self-configure.
Hope this helps.

Hi Niyas,

Good day to you,

Doesn't matter whether it is standalone access point, if you want to adopt AP7502 to VX9000 controller, you can follow the steps suggested by Max.

Thank you
