Remote AP with "always" SSID question.

I'm trying to set up a RAP2 with an "always" SSID that will broadcast when the RAP loses connection to the controller. The VAP needs to be in bridge mode so that the client is dropped in the local LAN on where ever the RAP sits. I've currently got this working with a AP125 provisioned as a RAP but not the RAP2.

 

I believe the issue is with the VLAN. My question is which VLAN would I assign the RAP and would the VLAN need to have an IP address? The SSID is using WPA2/PSK which I know is correct.

The VLAN would have to be the same VLAN as the AP System Profile's default VLAN (which by default is 1).  It would not need an ip address on the controller, NO.  If it is anything besides the AP System Profile's default VLAN, it will tag the traffic, because it would expect that access point to be on a trunk.
