I need some advise regarding ssid zoning. Say for example we have 3 IAP-103 access points in a cluster. AP1, AP2 and AP3
We have 2 SSIDs, example "Staff" and "Guest"
How do I configure the AP1 to broadcast the "Staff" and "Guest" SSIDs, AP2 to broadcast only the "Guest" SSID and AP3 to broadcast the only the "Staff" SSID?

With the current way zones work I do not think this is possible. From the guide:
- An IAP can belong to only one zone and only one zone can be configured on an SSID.
- If an SSID belongs to a zone, all IAPs in this zone can broadcast this SSID. If no IAP belongs to the zone configured on the SSID, the SSID is not broadcast.
- If an SSID does not belong to any zone, all IAPs can broadcast this SSID.
I also tried to create the same SSID twice and assign each instance of the SSID to a different zone, but it will not allow duplicate SSID to be created even with a different zone.

This was my conclusion too, I was hoping I interpreted the user guide
incorrectly. I guess I'm going to have to create a new ssid and zone. But
this will cause some other headaches with the applications/ devices!
