Any recommendations on how to get AH AP’s to work with trunk / tagged links? Each time they are converted from access to trunk links (after obtaining IP address and functioning normal) they lose connection with Hive Manager?

You probably have resolved the issue. Just in case. Think of your management VLAN as your infrastructure LAN.. lets call it VLAN1 and the building that your AP is installed in is on VLAN50. Whatever port on the switch the AP is plugged into at the building, you would have VLAN1 untagged, and VLAN50 tagged, and then whatever port is going back to home base (to connect back to say your server room) you would have untagged (which would be vlan1), and your vlan50 tagged. That would mean you AP management side would be on vlan1, BUT anything connecting to the AP would be on VLAN50. Of course this is assuming you have the vlans configured on your router, and the IP ranges on your DHCP server. Hope the above is helpful, and understandable. I have to say, even after many years, i still get tripped up with vlans! good luck. J.
OH, and dont forget to get back into the hive admin and make sure you have the “management - native vlan” updated as shown in the pictures in this thread.
