This article covers the scenario where a node is marked as Wireless Controller and how you can revert it back to its default settings. 




    •  Routing table
     Status & Response Time
    • ICMP (Ping) - Fastest
    • SNMP
  •  CPU & Memory
  •  Topology: Layer 3
    Node Details
    •  Node Details by SolarWinds
    •  F5SoftwareVersion by F5SoftwareVersion
    •  SonicWallSoftwareVersion by SonicWallSoftwareVersion
     Volume Utilization


NPM version 11.0 and later


This issue occurs when nodes have been manually assigned as Wireless Controller in the Node view.


  1. Go to Orion Web console > Settings> Views by Device Type.
  2. Click Locate (Alcatel), and change the Nodes Web View to default.
  3. Click submit.
