Upgrading Autonomous Cisco Aironet Access Points to Lightweight Mode


This requires a PC tool, which will generate certificates, and create a hash file, necessary to get the IOS AP into the LWAPP mode and recognized by the controller. I've attached the guide, which provides the steps to convert, or re-vert an IOS AP to LWAPP,

and will be happy to answer your questions or provide any other assistance you need. It is best, if your AP is in the same VLAN

subnet as the controller, and you will need a DHCP server on this network, to provide an IP address to the APs because this is Layer3. We can manage IOS APs on the c2006 and c440x platforms of WLC. Section 6 of this guide describes DNS and DHCP option 43 methods of feeding your WLC's Management Interface address to the APs.

I am quite familiar with this guide and Cisco wireless. I am seeking any issues or unknowns which occurred during the upgrade. Don't want to be blindsided.
