Why is the AP not listed in "show ap database-summary" with wired port enabled on an AP ?

Q:
Why is the AP not listed in "show ap database-summary" as "Wired AP's"with wired port enabled on an AP ? 


A:
In the below example, We have "Wired AP" option enabled for AP-121 and disabled the radios.

Here this AP is not getting listed under "Wired Access Points" even after enabling "Wired AP" option.

Explanation: 
============

This is working as expected.

In the AP Database summary,  Wired Access points are considered to be those Access points with zero radios. 

"AP-2E (Last support AOS version: 5.0) and RAP-5 (Last support AOS version: 6.3)" are the only AP's that are considered to be Wired Access Points.

If we disable the Virtual APs and enable Wired port of an AP, the entry is still treated as a CAP as the number of radios for that AP is not zero.
