airControl - Discovered Devices Fall into 'Unplaced Devices' Folder


When running discovery task with 'Resolve topology' option checked, discovered devices fall into 'Unplaced Devices' folder. Network topology may also not resolve properly.

Possible causes/recommended actions

Failed SSH logins will always put device into ‘Unplaced devices’ folder since no information was obtained to determine device's actual place in the topology.

Verify that SSH settings are correct and that port 22 is open

Make sure airControl can successfully log in into each discovered device via SSH, since this is crucial for correctly resolving topology. Correct network topology is also very important when performing firmware updates in a PoE-safe manner.
