  • ExtremeWireless WiNG Controllers
  • ExtremeWireless WiNG Access Points
  • WiNG 5 Software
While creating DHCP server policy as mentioned in article How to configure DHCP services useing CLI on WiNG Access Points add one conditional command in global policy configuration as per below screen shots:

Using command line interface
AP(config-dhcp-policy-TEST)#dhcp-server activation-criteria ?
  cluster-master                       When cluster master
  rf-domain-manager                    When RF Domain manager
  vrrp-master                          When VRRP master

Once proper condition is selected (for cluster configuration use cluster-master, for site limited DHCP server use rf-domain manager) map the policy to correct profile.
