Yesterday I introduced a local controller to our topology, going from standalone master to a master/local setup. That all went fine and the two controllers began communicating with each other.
I then configured an AP system profile with the lms-ip parameter set and chose to assign that system profile to an AP group that only contained 2 APs so I could test it worked -- however upon executing the commands all APs on the master controller switched to the new local controller. They are all working okay, it's just not the behaviour I expected.
Any idea what's happened here? It's as though the lms-ip command has applied globally -- any new APs I'm bringing up are associating straight to the local controller so I am unable to configure them properly at the moment.
I've included hopefully all the relevant snippets of the config:
(aruba-master) #show configuration | begin ap-group ap-group "default" ! [...] ap-group "hom-apg-qw-gr" virtual-ap "hom-vap-eduroam" enet1-port-profile "hom-utn-bridge" ap-system-profile "hom-sp-lms" ! (aruba-master) #show configuration | begin "ap system-profile" ap system-profile "default" ! ap system-profile "hom-sp-lms" lms-ip 192.168.100.12 bkup-passwords <removed> !
Please let me know if I should provide any more information.

I see -- does the documentation state that anywhere? I was under the impression that lms-ip only applied to the AP groups that the system profile was associated with. I'm a bit confused why it has applied globally when I only configured one AP group with that system profile but perhaps I've misinterpreted what I've read.
Based on what you're saying, if I wanted new APs that need provisioning to associate first to the master controller, should I add "lms-ip <master controller ip>" to the default AP group?

You can create new profiles that clone the defaults.

As per the config snippet in my first post I am not using the default groups -- I have several AP groups and created a specific system-profile for setting the lms-ip.

By chance does is your second controller have a DNS entry for aruba-master.your-company.com that would default the new APs to it.
Is the second controller at a remote location from the master? if not is it running ADP?
