Configuring HiveManager to use another DHCP-server

Hi everyone! First off wanna thank you for a good forum, read lots of interesting articles here already :)

So, I have an issue with DHCP. I will post the topology below:

The issue I have is that if a wireless user connects to the STNW004 accesspoint, they will get a IP-address from the STNFPS01 DHCP-server, but I want them to get the scope from the ADMDHC01 DHCP-server.

The reason for this is that we have firewalls rules that affects the range, and I need wireless users to get an IP-address from this scope.

I recently started working as a Network Technichan, and the guy I have replaced had all the knowledge about this.

There is two SSID's now. One for NWG_LAN and one for NWG_TV. The problem with NWG_LAN is that this SSID is connected via a RADIUS-server and uses Active Directory to authenticate users. The TV we got know, can't be joined to the domain, so that SSID won't work.

I've looked around in the Forum and seen somewhere that the mgm0 interface is used for DHCP, is that correct?

If I compare the two SSID's, Network Policy's and User Profiles, they are exactly the same. But somehow the AP will pick the DHCP-addresses on the LAN instead of the WAN.

If users connect to the NWG_LAN, they will get the addresses from the ADMDHC01 scope. Feels like I'm missing something in the configuration? But I can't find where it could be.

The "green" marking is how the DHCP goes now, and the "red" is how I want it to go.

Thanks alot for any help.

If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask me!

Best regards / Conny

use different vlan's and configure ip helper addresses pointing to your different dhcp servers on these vlan's on your router
