Cisco Prime repeated PoE error message

Dear community,


I'm getting since a recent migration the following messages into Cisco Prime 2.x :


POE status

Message: Access point 'AP5087.xxxx.xxxx' associated with controller 'xyzxyz' draws low power from Ethernet. Failure reason: 'The AP draws low power from Ethernet'. - Controller Name: xyzxyz

 (6 times)


I have this messages on switches that are old and recent like 4506 with PoE card and also with 2960X full PoE.

One AP is a old 1131AG and the other is a recent 2602i...

AP are working correctly, I don't see something abnormal on the switch when doing a "show power inline"

However I don't get why I got those messages and what could be the resolution for it...

Both switches have enough remaining power to provide...

I'm available to provide some more info if wished

Thanks a lot
