    Hello, I'm in the process of setting up 8.10 to convert from 6.5.   Do I set the L3 VLAN IP's at each controller, or can I set it at the cluster level?  We're a small shop, so only two mobility conductors and two controllers in a cluster.

    VLAN IPs are typically set on the controller level, because each controller needs to have it's own IP address per VLAN to avoid IP address conflicts.

    Thank you!!   Do you know if a document is posted somewhere to tell me best practices for where to assign policies?  Its a bit confusing coming from 6.5

    The SE from yuor Aruba account team should be able to assist.
    In AOS 8 most all the configuration is in an inherited tree structure under . Managed Network. It is recommended to put no configuration directly there.
    AirGroup configuration is a special case. I do not recall where that configuration goes.  We took that opportunity to totallt redesign our configuration from scratch.

    am assuming a Mobility Condictor instead of Primary / Secondary controllers.
