trying to setup the internal DHCP and I keep getting this error "error in  setting DHCP scope network and netmask". I've used the management port for the network address and still the same error. I also tried a address other than the management ip but in the same subnet.

In the network box you need to put the correct network address (not the first IP in the range)

So, if your network range is 192.168.0.1 - 254 you'll need to put 192.168.0.0 in the network box.

Can you confirm exactly what you're entering into each box?

this allows me to apply the settings without the error
Pool Start Address   192.168.6.10
Pool End Address   192.168.6.100
Network   192.168.6.0
Netmask 255.255.255.0

is not giving ip out though. set dhcp in management interface to itself.

Ok so you're putting in the wrong key, or your client doesn't like the authentication/encryption you're using.

What options are you setting in the WLAN Authentication Layer2 tab?

Forgot to mention I do have a windows 2003 dhcp server on the lan which is what is giving the address instead of the controller

So do you want the WLC to give DHCP, or the Server 2003 box?
