Issue/Introduction

We have several Access Points (AP) on Spectrum even though the discovery has been disabled on WLC Manager.

Is there any way to disable the automatic discovery on the Access Points (AP) from Spectrum and they should not be rediscovered even if WLAN controller is  rediscovered?

Cause

Spectrum has a built in feature to automatically discover Access Points (AP) for devices under WLC Manager.

Environment

Spectrum 10.3.x, Spectrum 10.4.x

WLC Manager

Resolution

You can stop the automatic modeling of Access Points (APs) by setting the attribute enableAPDisc to FALSE on each WLC app model.

For Cisco Devices the App Model is "Cisco_LWAPP_App"

For Aruba Devices the App Model is "Aruba_Controller"
