Well  the issue what we have now is that access point has been added but its  not recognized by the NCS prime. I have tried all three versions of SNMP  but I get the same result. The SNMP configuration is valid since I use  the same for my switching infrastructure. When I enter "debug snmp packets" and "terminal monitor" I can see the SNMP communication between Prime and Aironet 1250 which is standalone.

When  I switch to Lifecycle theme and go to Operate > Device Monitor  Center I see all devices I have added. The Aironet 1250 is reachable but  under collection status I get Managed with Warnings. When I hover over  with my mouse I get "None available".

I  have successfully added my switching infrastructure in total, which is  operating perfectly for Catalyst 2960/3650/3750/4500 series but for 6500  under VSS I have some warnings. The device is recognized by the system  which is excellent and all is operational. I get the following errors  under Collection Status:

feature_sensorSNMP request timed out
feature_powerSupplyFanStatus-6kSNMP request timed out
IdentityCapabilityThe device is unreachable.
feature_flashdeviceSNMP request timed out
sam_ipsla_featureThe device is unreachable.

What can be done to resolve these issues ? I have attached a screenshot of this particular issue. The affected access point is

Upgrade NCS to the latest version(1.3).

Hi rajeeshp,

Currently I am not allowed to upgrade it because of internal procedures involved in upgrading a specific piece of software (obtaining permissions from various departments). Is it free to upgrade from 1.2 to 1.3 or there is a specific charge for that.

Even with the upgrade problem is still present.

Issue has been resolved by TAC. Our access points (LWAPP and Standalone / Autonomous) were converted from dual-mode APs (2.4GHz and 5.2GHz) to 5.2GHz. Patch has been delivered by Cisco.
