I have a pair of local controllers (7210s) in an HA setup (fast failover with state sync) that I need to move to another site. I will need to re-IP everything at the new location and was wondering if there is a good sequence to move these and also minimize downtime? I was thinking the sequence would be:
1. Move standby controller
2. Re-IP and re-configure to be new active, create new AP group with this as primary LMS, and create new HA group
3. Re-assign APs to new group and cause re-registration to new active- downtime would be limited to AP reboot time
4. Move former active controller
5. Re-IP and re-configure to be new standby
6. Add both controllers to new HA group
Thoughts? Anyone have a better sequence of events?

If you are planning on keeping the same config and code for the move , you could also remove the old IP from HA and add the new one of the standby that way the APs will be a standby tunnel to the standby controller and that way if the active controller goes away the APs will transition to the other controller .
Can the master support APs ?
