Enterasys AP discovery - DHCP settings


Enterasys access-points can discover controller  via dhcp(option 78 or 60/43), dns or L2 Multicast

In this manual I will use DHCP option 78 SLP Unicast.


DHCP server configuration

  • set predifined option






  •  add our new option 78 to scope settings




 in example above we add controller ip


 in dhcp scope controller is shown as hex number.

 0xc0 - 192

 0xa8 - 168

 0x1 - 1

 0x14 - 20

  •  check controller and approve access-point(s)



 My controller is set in that way every AP  has to be approve until can join to controller.





 tested on dhcp server(w2k3 and newer) and ap 3610
