Cisco WLC 2106 and Lightweight 1041N Access points

Got my hands on a Cisco WLC 2106 and want to use 1041 AP's if possible.  They look to be compatible according to the matrix the Cisco provides.  Have gone through the initial setup, but cannot get the AP's to connect to the WLC.  Tried entering the MAC address of the AP in the AP Policy of the WLC to no avail.   Trying to setup in a lab environment before it goes into production.  Have not created any VLANS, they are currently connected to a flat network.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Have you got a DHCP server on the network? If not, configure the WLC as a DHCP server. That will let the APs connect.

Also, it's essential that you set the time correctly on the WLC.

Sorry just got back to this.  Do have a DHCP on the network, configured the WLC internal DHCP, AP still won't connect.  Flashing green LED.   Is there some other settings that are needed?  Not that familiar with this device.

Thanks.

Ok, so you have DHCP running on the network.  What do you get at the console of the AP while it's booting?  Can you provide a log please?
