Instant Configuration Distribution

Hey all,


I have a new IAP-305 based Instant network but I am still trying to understand how the actual configuration is learned by new AP's? Can someone point me to a technical document which describes the process/protcol on how a new AP gets its configuration on an existing wired network?


The big assumption I have made is that the uplink trunk for each AP carring the various Wireless VLANs always requires the management VLAN to be untagged OR you tag all the networks including the management vlan, but manually set (via console) the uplink management interface VLAN tag before connection to the wired network?? Probably wrong and thats why I am asking.
