Thanks for replying guys.
Unfortunately, I do not have easy access to the AP's, they are already mounted. They have been prestaged with a management Vlan making it very tricky to get it back online with minimal involvement...
Also, I could accept if it where to happen on one or two AP's, but we are talking about half of them. (20 out of 40) This seems excessive to me.
In addition to this I have 200 more to go in different networks but for the same org, this will become unmanageable.
