I have 8 APs directly connected to a stack of 3850 switches operating as the WLC. I have 4 more APs connected to another 3850 stack on a different floor operating as a wireless mobility agent. I have a trunk link directly between the two 3850 stacks. If I log into the GUI for each of the stacks, I can see the APs that are connected to each stack, respectively. I have no visibility from the WLC to the APs that are connected to the agent.
Is this the normal behavior? Do I have to do my management of AP groups and WLANs at both the WLC and the agent? Was I mistaken in my understanding that the WLC operates as a central point of control? Below is the wireless mobility summary output from each stack:
