This issue occurs when the RUCKUS ICX-7150-C12P Switch ports get into a disabled/off state and do not transmit the Power to the Access Points via its Power over Ethernet (PoE) ports. The switch light status will be in a normal state however, there will be no lights on the Switch ports.
When the RUCKUS ICX-7150-C12P Switch reboots/restarts maybe after a power outage/spike and the Switch ports get into a disabled/off state causing No power to the Access Points or any other devices connected to the Switch ports.

1. First, we must identify the ‘current’ IP address assigned to the Switch by your local Internet Service Provider (ISP) Router to the RUCKUS ICX-7150-C12P Switch. Here is the guide Link on how to find the same.

2. Once we identify the IP address of the Switch proceed to access remotely the device “Command Line Interface” (CLI). Here is the guide on How to access the Command Line Interface (CLI) of the RUCKUS ICX-7150-C12P Switch
ICX7150-C12 Switch> (Accessing CLI using SSH option)
telnet@ICX7150-C12 Switch> (Accessing CLI using Telnet option when SSH doesn’t work)
Note: Hit Enter to accept each command
ICX7150-24P Switch#show inline power
There should be a similar output of the command as highlighted in the FIGURE 3 to confirm that the PoE is in the disabled/off state on all the ports of the Switch. By which the Access Points or devices connected to the Switch are unable to get the power or not working.

No password has been assigned yet...
Switch(config)#interface ethernet 1/1/1 to 1/1/12

Once you perform the above process all ports should be On, and APs should get the power.
Once the RUCKUS ICX-7150-C12P switch ports come online, should fix the issue. We can confirm by checking the ‘show inline power’ command output as mentioned above.
