I am going to provide a little background before I come to my question.
I have a Unifi 24P POE switch that is up and running on the Unifi Controller docker container.
The way I was able to get the Unifi switch added to the Unfi Controller, I had to set a port on the firewalla as a LAN port to get the switch to show up on the controller to adopt. After it was adopted I went in and changed the management network to one of the VLAN's on the Firewalla and came up just fine on the VLAN.
Now that I have provided context on how I was able to adopt the switch. I am having an issue getting a Unifi AP added to the controller. Since you need POE to power the AP, I am not able to plug in the AP directly into the Firewall LAN port to get the VLAN 1 IP address.
I tried to set the firewall LAN port to a VLAN 1 port and extend the port up to the Unifi Switch. I set the port on the switch for the AP to match, but the Firewalla is not seeing the AP and is not giving out an IP address for me to SSH into and using the set-inform command.
Anyone have any idea's on what I can do to get the AP to see the controller?
