Does anybody know if it's possible and how one would setup IP Helper on the WLC Controller ? I am interested in pointing my dhcp requests over the wireless to a specific dhcp server so that i can clearly distinguish between wired and wireless clients ....
Suggestions ? Help ??

    You'd have to create seperate VLANs for the wireless traffic. Once that's set up, go to your controller, go to the "Controller" tab and click the interfaces link. Add a new one or click on an existing one, and you'll see the boxes for primary and secondary DHCP servers there.

    Controllers --> interface --> Primary DHCP Server
