We have also just done the same as you, added a 4400 controller to ORION 9.5 and are wondering how we can alert against the AP's.
The way i see it is that the "thin" AP's are not going to respond to SNMP from an external source (Such as the orion server) - only from the Cisco WLC's themselves, therefore each AP cannot become an individual node within ORION as such, is this correct?
All of our APs are listed as interfaces on the WLC, this kind of makes sense. We have tried failing an AP and we don't get an alert on the system by default.
I too would appreciate a bit of help with this, it would be nice to monitor all the AP's on the WLC and receive a standard ORION alert should one become unavailable.
Any thoughts much appreciated,
You are correct, thin AP's do not get counted against the license. What SP are you on? SP2 is the latest SP, have you applied that?
Thanks for the response, we are currently running version v9.5.0, so no service packs applied. Will applying SP2 allow us to alert on these thin AP's?
I believe it should, we have created some out of the box alerts with 9.5, such as Alert me whena Thin WAP goes down
