    Can you please provide screenshot of License management page from webUI of Master (before failover) and Standby Master (after failover)? 

     

    Go to: Configuration -> Network -> Controller -> Centralized License Management -> Information.

     

    How many controllers do you have in total? Two (Master - Standby Master)?

    You are right, AP count doesn't look right. You should open a TAC case and get to the bottom of this.
