"Failed to authorize AP" on WCS

Hi Laure,

You can use the Authorize AP's against AAA function to make sure that all the AP's registering to your WLC are authorized AP's of the network. menas only thoese AP which MAC address are present in WLC can be authorized.

Go to

Security -> Ap Polices --> AP authorize against AAA(check the box)
