    Monitoring Cisco APs associated with a Wireless Controller

      Hi there,


           I'm pretty new here and in the industry and I'm trying out Solarwinds Orion NPM and I definitely would recommend it to any fellow IT because it's a very efficient and top-of-the-line network monitoring system.


           However I do have a problem regarding Cisco Access Points which are associated with our WLAN Controller. We have a Cisco Aironet AIR-AP1142N-AK9. I can add the WLAN controller to the solarwinds orion's managed nodes, however, we would want to see the APs themselves, because as we all know, those APs don't really have management except on the WLAN controller. I'd want to know those things and all the stuff that I've seen in the live demo.


           I've browsed through the admin guide, but unfortunately, I wasn't able to find out stuff about APs associated with WLAN controllers. What I've seen though are regarding stand-alone access points, which are easily monitored by the orion NPM. Thanks, I hope someone could write me an input on this one. Thanks a lot!
