Great doc, but any chance it will be updated for 6.4?  The redundancy sections are rather dated now.

Can anyone give me an answer or point me to the "VRD Campus Networks" documentation for the following questions:

"VLANs are used on the access side of the controller where the APs terminate their GRE tunnels. These VLANs carry traffic back and forth between APs and the controllers. Aruba strongly recommends that edge access VLANs should not be dedicated to APs. The only exception where the APs may have to be deployed on dedicated VLANs is in environments where 802.1X is a requirement on the wired edge. The APs should use the existing edge VLANs as long as they have the ability to reach the mobility controller. Deploying the APs and AMs in the existing VLANs allows for the full use of the Aruba rogue detection capabilities."

Should the AP's be in their own vlan or in the same vlan as clients?
