I am upgrading some AP firmware on our network. We are using a cross between AP350s, (which i keep telling them to get rid of), AP1200s, and AP1242s.
We still don't have a Wireless Lan Controller, so I have been upgrading my 650 APs individually, manually across the browser interface.
This is all done remotely across the country.
I have come into an issue where an AP1200 had 12.3(2)JA6 and I was attempting to upgrade to 12.3(8)JEA3. Generally all is well and this process takes only a few minutes. This time, it continued to retry..the little popup progress windows would restart quite often. Nothing seems to have happened as far as configuration goes, as I can still access the device through telnet. However when accessing it through the browser the screen reverts back to an old-school non-user friendly, non-gui interface that gives some help resources and an almost CLI style html linked access menu.
So it looks to me that the process made it partially through, just enough to mess up the browser interface.
My question is this...should I attempt to upgrade through the telnet session, which will likely result in 'not enough memory' errors, or is there a way to remedy this lovely turn of events?
Thanks in advance for any and all support.
Sorry Bro, another broken link :( This does have some good ideas in it (can you use the overwrite?);
Hope this helps!
