This article explains the management modes available on AMP server when it manages an Instant cluster. There are two management modes on AirWave server:

  1. Monitor only mode:  In this mode, the AMP server only monitors the device. It cannot push any configuration to the devices under any circumstance.
  2. Manage Read/Write mode:  In this mode, AMP has the capability to push configuration to the IAP/controller along with monitoring the device.

Note: From IAP OS version onwards, the IAP WebUI turns into “read-only” if the management mode on the AirWave server is configured as “Manage Read/Write” mode. No configuration changes can be done using the IAP WebUI.  All the configuration has to be pushed into the IAP through the AirWave server.
