Monitoring Backed-Up Wireless Access Points on Wireless LAN Controllers
This topic describes how to monitor backed-up wireless access points on a wireless LAN controller. You can monitor backed-up wireless access points on wireless LAN controller nodes in any view.
When wireless LAN controllers are configured in a cluster, each wireless access point in the cluster can have a primary controller and a secondary controller. You can see which wireless access points use the selected wireless LAN controller as their secondary controller. The term backed-up means that the wireless LAN controller is acting as a secondary (backup) controller for a wireless access point.
