I recently received a Cisco 5500 Wireless Controller.

I am looking for basic configuration information on this device.

What would a basic running configuration consist of?

Any best practices to keep in mind when configuring these devices?

Open to suggestions. Thanks.

Please note that I have several wireless vlans already in place on our infrastructure.

Our access points are running in stand-alone mode currently.

Look at this...
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/wireless/controller/6.0/configuration/guide/c60pref.html

Its the configuration guide for V6 controller software.

You should also read this:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/wireless/technology/swan/deployment/guide/swandg.html


The basic configuration would consist of IP addressing for the management interface and AP-Manager interface, basic wireless settings (SSID, Regulatory domain, RF parameters), admin access and networking options (RADIUS, NTP, etc.).
