How to configure APs to go online statically or dynamically

Generally, if APs and the AC are on the same Layer 2 network, after the APs obtain IP addresses from the DHCP server, the APs can discover the AC by using broadcast and then connect to it. For configurations of APs to go online dynamically, see Example for Configuring APs to Dynamically Go Online in WLAN Typical Configuration Examples.
If APs and the AC are not in the same network segment or users expect APs to go online dynamically on a specified AC, configure the IP address of the AC through the Option 43 field of the DHCP server. After obtaining the IP address through DHCP packets, the APs can go online on this AC according to the IP address carried by the Option 43 field. For the configurations, see Example for Configuring WLAN Services in Layer 3 Bypass Networking (Direct Forwarding) or Example for Configuring WLAN Services in Layer 3 Bypass Networking (Tunnel Forwarding) in WLAN Typical Configuration Examples.
Users can also configure the IP address of the AC on the APs so that the APs can go online using the static IP address. For the configurations, see Example for Enabling an AP to Go Online Using a Static IP Address in WLAN Typical Configuration Examples.
