Fortigate / Fortiswitch / FortiAP Advice

Hi All
My first time using a Fortinet setup so any advice would be greatly received.
The current setup at the site is a Fortigate F100D which links to a PoE Fortiswitch which has the FortiAPs connected. This part of the setup is currently functioning. However there are several FortiAPs running from a Netgear PoE switch on the other side of the building which are in a disconnected state.
The connected APs have a 169.254.*.* address whereas the disconnected APs have picked up a DHCP address from the Domain Controller 10.10.*.*.
My question is how to get the APs to connect when not using the Fortiswitch? The SSID is currently set to 'Tunnel to Wireless Controller' which I suspect might be related.
Many Thanks

    CAPWAP enabled on the interface that is receiving the information from the APs?
    Whatever interface is closest to the AP that the Gate itself controls needs that.
