RAP local pool too small



Our RAP Local pool is becoming too small.  

We have 2 masters and 4 localcontrollers. When a RAP boots it will be directed to one of the locals. On all our controllers we have configured the same ip range for the localpool. We used a free subnet on our  wired LAN for our pool.

Is it possible to change the range  without problems with our active RAP's ? In that case the range will overlap with a subnet on our wired LAN, does this give routing problems? What will happen if I choose a totally different range which is not a part of our wired LAN.

What will happen  then with our active RAP's , will they reboot and get the new Ip address? Or  will they loose connection and need a power down before they will be back online again?

No. The current RAPs will stay up & continue using assigned ip-addresses till then rebootstrap. And new RAPs will get ip from new pool created.
