Where in the line to connect the AP-AC-Pro

I currently have one port on a Switch 48 POE-500W connected to a AP-AC-Pro which is then connected to a Switch 8 POE-60W.  Is this a non-favoriable setup, meaning should I have the switches directly connected and have the AP-AC-Pro utilize one of the ports on the Switch 8?

Re: Where in the line to connect the AP-AC-Pro

Ideally the switches would be connected to each other, as any update to the AP would disconnect the downstream client. It's not the end of the world as long as you plan for it. I have my uap ac pro connected to my 8port 150 for power and network connectivity, I then feed a unmanaged 8 port gigabit switch which has a smart tv, Blu-ray player, IP security camera  and TiVo mini. Never had any issues with connectivity except when updating/rebooting my AP (down time of 2-5 minutes.
