We have recently purchased about a dozen Instant 225 and are managing them through the virtual controller. There are not any scopes defined in the GUI of the VC but there are definitely 172.31.98.x addresses being handed out. Since we already have a DHCP server set up, how can I totally disable the dhcp function on the Arubas?
Apparently you are using an SSID, that has its VLAN setting set to "Virtual Controller Assigned".
If you change that VLAN settings, then you should not get IP from the internal DHCP server.
You can change the default DHCP server scope from 172.x to something else but you can not disable it.
However as explained above, you can stop using it on the SSID, by changing the VLAN settings.
Thank you for the prompt answer.I checked the SSID configurations and they are set to Network Assigned. The alternative is Virtual Controller Managed which I am going to assume means the same as Virtual Controller Assigned.
That is correct. Below is a full description of the Client IP Assigment and VLAN Assignment options.
