Unable to Authorize FortiAP

I've got a Fortigate30E-3G4G with a single FAP-221C connected.
I've purchased a second FAP-221C, and while it's being discovered in the "Managed FortiAPs" screen of the GUI, I can't authorize it.
 
From the cut sheets of the Fortigate 30E, it says the maximum number of FortiAPs is 2, although in the firmware it shows 1/1 Total FortiAPs. This doesn't seem right. Any insights?

    Have confirmed from the Max values table (both 6.0 and 5.6) that the 30E supports 2 APs.
     
    Try adding the AP via the CLI:
     
    config wireless-controller wtp
    edit "FP221C3X16000000"
    next
    end


    See if that gives you any error message. 
     
    Also check to see there is only have one AP listed in that section - if there is already two entires there, the fgt may not allow you to add another AP even if only one physical AP is connected.

    Just to confirm, it's not a FortiWifi 30E-3G4G?  That would only support one FortiAP.

    This means FWF can manage two Forti APs. One directly Connected FAP & one Remotely managed FAP.
