When you see the message "This AP is managed by AP controller. To manage this AP, please access AP controller's web interface." while trying to access an AP's GUI, it indicates that the AP is under the control of an AP Controller.

When AP is managed by the AP Controller, all configuration settings, monitoring, management data, and logs for the AP are centralized and managed through the AP Controller's GUI, please go to GUI of the AP controller to configure settings.

This design aims to simplify network management by allowing users to oversee and configure all their APs from a single, centralized interface. It streamlines the process, making it easier to maintain consistent settings across multiple APs and providing a comprehensive overview of the network's performance and status.
