Moving AP from Unmanaged to Managed

I've got an AP 120 in Unmanaged and I can't figure out how to move it to Managed.

Based on other posts, I've verified that it has a Network Policy.

And according to our License Management, we've got 48 devices and licenses for 49.

The AP itself is showing green on it's face.

We've pulled way back on our AeroHive installations so I would like to remove all the unused APs from Management and add them back if we need them again but my first try at re-adding a removed AP isn't going well.

Any suggestions?

The AP will move it self from unmanaged to managed when it gets connected to Hivemanager.
A green light indicates that the AP isn't connected. It should be a white light.
Verify that you have the correct Serial number entered and if you have ability to connect to the console of the AP, enter "show capwap client" and see if it has the right hivemanager server.
Ar you running HiveManager Online or on Prem?

Thanks Erik.  I was unable to find the IP address for the AP (no DHCP lease, reservation didn't work) so I reset the AP and it moved itself to managed.
