Pre-requisites for Deploying Mobility Express Solution
- You must not have other Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers; neither appliance nor virtual in the same network during set up or during daily operation of a Cisco Mobility Express network. The Mobility Express controller cannot interoperate or co-exist with other Wireless LAN Controllers in the same network.
Decide on the first Access Point to be configured as a Master Access Point. This Access Point should be capable of supporting the Wireless LAN Controller function.
- A DHCP server must be available on the network so that Access Points and clients can obtain an IP Address. Starting AireOS® Release 188.8.131.52 or later, one can configure a DHCP server on the Master Access Point as well but this is typically used for Site Survey.
