What are the limitation if i select AP's forwarding mode as Bridge. Will QOS ,Firewall policies (web catagory or IP session based ACL's) work?
I have two different location connected through MPLS. I have 7210 controller placed in both Location and I require that if location 1 controller goes down it should latch to location 2 controller and vice versa.I can see that in tunnel forwarding mode it can be a challlenge hence want AP's to work in bridge forwarding mode. Please suggest if bridge mode will have any limitations!
Will centralized licensing work or i need to add additional licenses on both controller for failure AP;s
thanks in advance.

Firewall policies will work, along with session-based acls. Web Category and QOS will not work.

If you really plan to use Bridge Mode (that you should avoid using unless no other solutions exist; tunnelling makes much more sense in pretty all cases), do not forget to enable Control Plane Security (CPsec).
A few bugs on Bridge Mode were fixed over the last year; pay close attention to the version you are using now as AOS 188.8.131.52 is the minimum in the 6.4 series branch to be usuable.
