Factory Defaulting 4402

Unanswered Question
Mar 30th, 2008

We have a lab controller (4402) that no one seems to know the password for. Is there a way to do a factory reset without having been logged in first?

i don"t mind losing the existing configuration>


I have this problem too.

I believe you can reboot the WLC while you are consoled in and then during boot up there will be a prompt to hit 'ESC'. There should be an option to reset the WLC to facory or maybe it is clear configuration. hope this helps. Haven't done this in a while.

Connect to the console and reboot the WLC. After it's finished loading, at the username prompt, type 'Recover-Config'.

By the way; a distant relative perhaps ;)
