AP needs to be connected to the switch

Core issue

An Access Point (AP) is discovered only if these options are met:

  • AP is entered as a seed device.
  • AP is directly connected to a seed switch.


To resolve this issue, perform one of these options:

  • Enter the AP as a seed device in the Wireless LAN Solution Engine (WLSE).
  • Enter the switch where AP is connected as a seed device.

At the same time, make sure that both devices can see each other as Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP) neighbors.
