I have a wireless controller with 10 APs. I also have a Cisco switch 3750. My wireless IP address is 10.10.10.200 vlan10. My vlan for the wireless users are vlan 100 and 200. It is configured on the controller. My APs are connected to the switch. My question is which vlan should I configure for the ports where the APs are connected to? vlan10? Thx

It doesn't matter, technically speaking.  You can put the APs on whichever VLAN you like, as long as they can get to the management IP of the controller.

From a security perspective you should put the APs on either the same VLAN as the controller's management interface, or a dedicated VLAN.  It's not really advisable to put the APs on a client VLAN.

In your scenario I would agree with rcaballerojr; put the APs on VLAN 10.  Even though the APs are servicing 3 VLANs (2 client and 1 management) they tunnel all traffic via the WLC, so the AP only needs to be connected to a port which is configured in access mode...
