202 CHAPTER 10: CONFIGURING MAP ACCESS POINTS
After the MAP is configured with the above information, the next time
the MAP boots, the following takes place:
1 The MAP sends an ARP request for its own address, to ensure it is not in
use elsewhere in the network.
2 The DNS server resolves the fully qualified domain name of the WX
3 The MAP sends a Find WX message to the WX switch WXR100.
4 The WX switch WXR100 responds to the Find WX message
5 The MAP sends a unicast message to the WX switch WXR100 and
determines whether it should use a locally stored image or download it
from the WX switch.
6 Once the operational image is loaded, WX switch WXR100 sends
configuration information to the MAP.
