I was wondering if you all would give me your valuable suggestions on the following configuration and what is the best course of action.
I have a MC800 running the campus APs,and I would like to integrate an MC200 to run the new RAP2WGs. Before I start on a trial and error kind of deal, I was wondering if you all would share with me your experience with setting up the RAP2s on a controller dedicated to it since I need to have the RN code running on this 200 controller. I would appreciate any gotchas, and details on configuring the RAP2s for this particular configuration.
Thanks in advance,

course....you mentioned that). You'd run it as its own master...don't
"integrate" it with your 800. Then, since the 200 doesn't have the
TPM, the "One Touch Provisioning" will not work, so you'll need to
configure it like a legacy RemoteAP. Which means, configuring a
username/password and ikepsk in the controller, then connecting the RAP2
to the controller so it comes up as an AP in the list, then you
provision it with the username/password and ikepsk and controller IP
address and then you're good.

I recommend using AirWave to manage both controllers rather than trying to set them up in a master-local configuration.

also keep in mind your throughput requirements. I believe the RAP2 is capable of 5 Mbps ipsec encrypted throughput, which is pretty damn good in my opinion considering its size and relative cost, but if you have requirements higher than that, look to the RAP5
I demo'd a RAP 2 at my house (using an MC200) for vpn access to our corporate network and loved it
