I would like to use the Multiple AP-Manager interface feature on the Cisco 5508 to load balance my APs across 4 physical ports.
I have configured 3 dynamic AP Management interfaces (dyn-1, dyn-2, dyn-3)  bind to 3 different physical ports (port 2, 3, and 4). The predefined "management" interface is bind to phy port 1.

I have one WLAN profile with ssid BETANET which is bind to the interface management by default.
How do I bind it to the other 3 interfaces? It doesn't seen possible in the GUI because it only allow me to choose one from the drop down list.
Is it not possible to use the multiple AP-Manager features to support a single SSID?

LAG requires all connections to the same neighbor switch. We intend to connect the 5508 to 2 switches.

I don't think it actually matters. SSIDs don't bind to the AP-Manager interface, so it would be fair to assume that if you can see the SSID on an access point connected to port 4 it should work.

Have you tried it?

Thanks for your comment. We have decided to abandon the Multiple AP-Manager for now.
