Hi James,


Pre-stage Configuration for LWAPP Access Points


This feature simplifies the deployment of LWAPP access points in remote locations by adding a new set of CLI's to the Recovery IOS image. The static IP address, Netmask, Default gateway, and Primary Controller IP address may now be configured on the access point. Configuring the Primary Controller IP address will help the access point discover and register a specific Controller over the WAN links. In a deployment scenario where a DHCP server is not available in remote locations the CLIs may be used to configure the static IP address and the initial LWAPP controller information.


The new pre-stage CLI commands are listed and described in Upgrading Autonomous Cisco Aironet Access Points to Lightweight Mode. Click this link to browse to that document:

Configuring Static Parameters to Register the Access Point to a Controller

Using the password that the controller sent to the access point, enter into EXEC mode on the access point console. When the access point is running LWAPP or a recovery IOS image, you can configure the static IP address on the access point, the IP address on the controller, the access point hostname, and the default gateway IP address by entering these commands:


lwapp ap ip address ip-addr subnet-mask


**lwapp ap controller ip address ip-addr


lwapp ap hostname ap-hostname


lwapp ap ip default-gateway ip-addr


The access point with a recovery IOS image uses the static controller IP address to register to the specified controller and download the current LWAPP image. After the access point successfully registers to the controller, it receives configurations from the controller. The access point static hostname and the IP address of the controller are deleted from the access point configuration file. However, the access point static IP address and the netmask and the default gateway IP address are not deleted.


When the access point is running a recovery IOS image, the commands to configure the static IP address on the access point, the IP address on the controller, the access point hostname, and the default gateway IP address are always enabled.


Hope this helps!

Rob
