HP MSM 720 - Redundancy and failover/ Basic configuration

Hello Everyone,


I am working on one project which has HP core (5406zl) redundant switches and HP access switches. Additionally i have to configure redundant HP MSM 720 controllers. 93 access points will be registed to this controllers.


I working for Juniper and Cisco Wireless controller but i am new to HP wireless controllers.  Need help how to configure this two wireless controller with two redundant core switches.


Do i need to configure Active/Active or Active/Standby. I read on this forum that teaming need to be done for controller failover.


My request to HP Wireless controllers experts on this forum to advise or provide any documentation to complete the configuration. Also kinldy advise if any further licencing is required for redundany or failover.




Below is the details for wireless
