Hi Shadi

What version of Firmware do I have in the RFs6000?
What model of APs are being adopted?
Are the RFS6000 configured in Cluster mode?
Do you have enough licenses?

Hi Shadi,

I would start by checking the cluster configuration. As per WiNG best practice you want to configure the controllers in an active/standby mode.

Below is the link to the WiNG Cluster How To Guide:

One way is to change the 'mint area id' from the default on the RFS you do not want the APs adopting too.

Default is set as: 'mint level 1 area-id 1 '

CLI commands are:
self
mint level 1 area-id <change >
commit write

Before you do anything see this doc :
WiNG 5.X Best Practices and Recommendations (see page 14)

Additional you can check this two commands:

show mint neighbors -> do you see the AP as neighbor
show adoption history -> check if the AP can reach the controller, but isn't adopted, maybe no adoption rule or no licenses
