Check the following configuration settings on the Zone Director:
  1. ZD GUI > Configuration > Services > Enable Automatically adjust 2.4Ghz channels using Background scanning and also for 5ghz
  2. ZD GUI > Configuration > WIPS > Enable report rogue devices . If the second option 'Report only malicious rogue devices of type'  is enabled, then one of the four sub-options need to be checked. Else there wil be no reporting 
  3. ZD GUI > Configuration > WLAN > select WLAN and click on Edit --> Advanced option >Make sure "Do not perform background scanning for this WLAN service" is unchecked 
  4. If the Service Schedule option is enabled for the specific timings then apart from that specific timing, the AP will not be able to detect Rogue APs or Neighbor APs. Configure > WLANs > Advanced Options > Service Schedule      
Note: Service Schedule configuration will be given first priority.
