In controller, no APs are down/up. We don’t use mesh AP.
Can anyone tell me what this message means?
Why do AP need to detct other AP in spite of no mesh AP?
AP model is AP-134.

Re: Inactive AP Detected SSID

The access points by default monitor wireless clients and access points; even ones that are not on your system. When these devices are aged out, that is when you see the "Inactive" message.
