DHCP Issues

I'm testing the master-standby master configuration. My issue is while I'm connected to the master controller, I perform a ipconfig/all (on my laptop) and I'm receiving my IP address from the DHCP server on the standby-master.

 

What could be the issue?

Re: DHCP Issues

A standby controller CAN serve up dhcp addresses, even though it is a standby.

Re: DHCP Issues

But is this best practice? The way I think of it is, with master-standby master configuration and all APs go to the master and I'm connected to the network via the master controller shouldn't the master controller serve dhcp addresses?

Re: DHCP Issues

The best practice is to not use the controller as a DHCP sever :-)

Re: DHCP Issues

I understand, but we're using dhcp on the controller for client IPs, so with master-standby master configuration and all APs go to the master and I'm connected to the network via the master controller shouldn't the master controller serve dhcp addresses? When I perform a ipconfig/all on my laptop, I see the standby master's address for the dhcp.
