Why my newly deployed AP being automatically managed by the AP Controller?

If your AP is being automatically managed by the AP Controller without your explicit consent, it's likely due to the current registration settings in the controller.

To change this:

  1. Login into the AP Controller's web GUI.
  2. Navigate to CONFIGURATION » Wireless » Controller.
  3. Change this Registration Type setting from Always Accept to Manual.
  4. Click Apply to keep the modification.

This adjustment ensures that APs in standalone mode are not automatically taken under the controller's management. By setting it to 'Manual', you gain full control over which APs are managed by the controller, preventing any unintended or automatic management of your network devices.
