Please help me understand something about WCM

LarryLarry All-Knowing Sage ✭✭✭✭

In one KB article I found about setting up SonicWaves, the very last line reads:

CAUTION: If you are using the SonicWall UTM device to manage the SonicWaves already then they will appear offline on the portal even if you add them to a zone. The SonicWaves can either be provisioned on the SonicWall UTM or be provisioned and managed via the WiFi cloud manager not both at the same time.

So I'm wondering: which approach is better in terms of managing and viewing the status of the device - using the UTM or using WCM?

I'm asking because I couldn't even get the Wireless button to activate after I registered the AP.

And why isn't there any form of synchronization between the two?

    Alright, got an answer to my own question after speaking with a Wireless support technician.

    If you want full control, use the UTM.

    If you don't have a UTM, use the WCM.

    There can't (or won't) be synchronization, because there may not be something on the other side.
