0. Good you have got the tunnel up. I hope you have verified it by show vpn tunnels on IAP and show iap table long on controller.

 

1. Best and easy way, plug a client in (say CL2 VLAN is X) VLAN X on the switch connected to controller and see if it gets an IP.

 

2. Trunk VLAN X to controller.

 

3. Create VLAN X on the controller.

 

If you have verified the above, then please share your IAP show tech and controller show run, & we will dig deeper from there.

Is there any design restrictions that prevent you from using a L3 DHCP at the IAP instead of Central L2 which sends all the broadcast traffic back the HQ .

Aruba recommends using the L3 option

Re: IAP VPN to controller but no DHCP

Hi,

 

Is the issue seen while connecting to master IAP or slave IAP?

 

In multi-IAP environment, make sure the client vlan is allowed on IAP's uplink as client traffic from slave IAP to master is tagged with the client

vlan.

 

Basically, your IAP's need to be on trunk ports which allows the vlan configured in L2 centralized scope.

 

Moreover, please make sure vlan is created on the controller as well.

 

DHCP server can be on the controller or any device upstream. We just need to ensure DHCP packet from the client can reach the DHCP server.
