WLC5520 Client DHCP issues

WLC5520 Client DHCP issues

WLC5520 Client DHCP issues


I've just installed a 5520. I have 3 SSID's. and 3 separate sites (All SSID's are broadcast across all 3 sites)

Each site has its own DHCP server, and the DHCP server address in the WLC is the core site DHCP (where the WLC is).

I'm using FlexConnect.

Clients at one site in particular are having issues getting DHCP addresses and if the controller says it has one, then you cant ping it and the device says it has a 169.254 address.

SSID's are:

Corp (vlan 4, 8 and 1 site dependant)
Guest (vlan 254 at all sites, with each site having it's own guest WWW connection)
Client (vlan 41, 31, 81 site specific)

Whenever I go to the troubled site, I never experience any issues.

We have had LWAPP and autonomous wifi systems running concurrently but now disabled the the old autonomous system but this doesnt seem to have helped.

Any help would be appreciated

TIA :)
