VLAN Pooling - Multiple VLANs

I have created a VLAN user group and also using Tags and allocating the specified VLANs onto the required APs depending on their location

Have tested and all works ok, 

However there are a couple of areas that have in excess of 1000 users. We don't want to increase the scope as we would like to keep it to /23 network

How can i add a second VLAN to the AP using the Tags. Everytime i add the VLAN to the VLAN group it won't let me, or if a create a second tag it conflicts with the first

Any ideas
cheers

Shane,

VLAN pooling is not supported, see the following topics:

If bigger subnets for those areas is not an option, your best bet is to build smaller segments and enable Layer 3 roaming.

That is what has been setup already. We have built smaller segments and applied these networks to specific APs using location tags.

What we are trying to achieve is adding a second VLAN to the AP using the same tags

You can't add a second VLAN to any AP using the same tags.

If you are running out of IP addresses, you need to build even smaller segments. And make sure that L3-Roaming is enabled.
