AP status "suspect" in Airwave

Hello, 

      I have 800+ APs running on a campus.  When viewing them through VisualRF in Airwave, selecting the AP from the map and then properties, a small number of APs show the status as "suspect".  I have not been able to find any documentation on what this means as far as my AP status goes.  What would be the cause of this?

 

 

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

Is this a sufficient screen shot?

That means that it is classified as a suspect rogue

Victor,  I assumed that was what "suspect" meant, but I am not sure why my controller would classify a provisioned access point as a suspected rogue.  Is this normal or does it indicate an issue with my wireless system?

Look under the Rapids events list and search for the MAC address of the AP in question and see which rapids rule is hitting and it also should show the source device that performed the scan/reported the event and that should be a good start to determine why the device is being classified as a suspected rogue AP
