    With AOS 8.x the correct method would be Controller Clustering, which would give you the synchronized config and automatic failover. If you don't want the clustering setup, and just true active/standby, you could just configure VRRP between them, and use the VRRP IP for the APs to connect to the controller..

    Here is a video on setting up Clustering, but if you skip to about 9:20 it goes over just the VRRP redundancy config.

    Just keep in mind, clustering requires the controllers to be managed by a Mobility Conductor.
