AP on trunk port and multiple vlans/dhcp scopes on controller

If I've got several vlan configured on a controller and a dhcp scope configured for each one, where will the AP get its address if it is plugged into a trunk port?

How do I stop an AP from getting an address from one or all of these scopes?

I'm assuming it is just

 from the pool, but can someone confirm please?

If my post is helpful please give kudos, or mark as solved if it answers your post.

Re: AP on trunk port and multiple vlans/dhcp scopes on controller

The AP will get its ip address from the Native VLAN of the trunk port. If you are supplying DHCP with using the controller's internal DHCP server, it automatically adds DHCP options 43 and 60 to your scopes forcing the access point to terminate on that controller.
