I have campus deployment where the aggregation switch deployed doesn't support DHCP-Server; instead I want to use my Aruba 7210 controller as a DHCP server (I read that it is supported). I'd like to know which kind of DHCP Server can this Controller provide? How many addresses? Can it give 2 or more DHCP pools (1 per each VLAN: management, SSID 1, SSID 2, ...etc)
Thank you in advance.

It is not really recommended to have the controller because:
- It is not scalable (only recommended for smaller guest networks).
- It does not offer the features and functionality that most DHCP servers offer.
- It presents a different interface than what typical admins would use for troubleshooting.
Long story short, unless you are just providing a /24 it is greatly suggested that you use an external DHCP server.
