How to configure profiling on a Branch Controller

I'm trying to configure DHCP helper on the Controller VLAN on a Branch Controller to pointing to my CPPM but the option is not available from the master controller. How can I do profiling for all endpoint connected on a Branc Office Controller?

 

Thanks,

Antonio

Re: How to configure profiling on a Branch Controller

When doing DHCP Helper addresses (in your case for CPPM profiling), it is done on each local/branch controller, not the master.   The reason is that this setting is found under the IP configuration of the specific controller.   This is found under the following:

 

Configuration --> Network/IP (edit) --> DHCP Helper Address

On the page I mention below, did you click the Add button below the DHCP Helper Addresses Field?   this will allow you to add an IP Helper address when you click Add and Apply.

Re: How to configure profiling on a Branch Controller

It seems we are talking about different scenarios. I'm using Smart Config on a Master controller in order to configure the Branch Controllers. Branch Controllers can't be configured locally.

The IP helper menu for the VLANs I want to push the Branch is not available, it is not highlighted

I'm configuring the Smart Config using a dynamic template. In order to test it, I've removed the dynamic templated and upload a CSV with the static template and now I can use enter the IP helper value for each of the VLAN.

Re: How to configure profiling on a Branch Controller

Finally fixed partially. It seems there is not an option to setup ip helper using a dynamic branch configuration. If you use static branch configuration, there will be an option to configure from the master the ip helper ip to be able to profile the endpoints but with static configuration I lose the capability to setup dhcp options which is a must for my voice ip phones. I tested with ArubaOS 6.4.4.6 where I can also setup two dns servers.
