I didn't design the job, but is pretty straight forward, except the following, the design has a single wlc 5508 with 2 physical connection between two non cisco switches. There are 2 initial WLANs to be created. I am ok with most of the wlc config execpt the following:

Now from my understanding of everything I have read recently, you can't use LAG on the 2 physical connections if they connect to 2 seperate switches, unless, although not offically supported, the 2 connections are on either 2 3750s in the same stack or a pair of 6500s running VSS. So I believe that in my case 2 seperate connections from the wlc to 2 non cisco switches will not work with LAG. Is my understanding of this correct?
Is there a way to maintain the 2 physical connections from the wlc to the 2 non cisco switches to maintain redundancy?The wlc will have a management interface obviously, but from what I have read, the 2 WLANs that are going to be created have to have their own interface on the WLC. Which I understand as the managment int and each of the 2 WLANs are on different subnets.
If I don't use a single uplink to one of the non cisco switches (either 1 or 2 physical connections) using LAG, it appears to me that each of the interfaces ( management, wlan1 and wlan2) need to have a physical connection from the WLC to the switch, with each interface mapped to a physical port on the WLC, so correct me please if I am wrong, but this would mean I need 3 physical connections between the wlc and the swtich?
