Downgraded AP's Not allowed in WCS as Autonomous

Unanswered Question
May 21st, 2008

I have some AP's (1130) that were ordered as LWAPP version but needed to be converted to Autonomous due to project timing. Now we want to migrate them using WCS but the WCS does not recognize these model numbers. Here is the message when I try to import them.

172.17.130.62 Autonomous AP Device type cannot be added to WCS

172.17.130.63 Autonomous AP Device type cannot be added to WCS

172.17.130.64 Autonomous AP Device type cannot be added to WCS

172.17.130.65 Autonomous AP Device type cannot be added to WCS

Is there a solution? I have a rather large network and the WCS/WiSM conversion got delayed but wireless expansion continued. This is why some are now converted. The units that are the normal autonomous models import and upgrade fine.

I have this problem too.

Never seen that yet, and done it thousands times with our 1130s in our labs, but with 124-10b.JA3. Could be interesting to convert one using archive download or the conversion utility to check if it converts... not the easiest way I know...

I think it is more the model number of the AP indicating that it is a LWAPP rather then the IOS version.

Agree with you, but the 1130 can be added to WCS, so the only reason I saw why WCS would not recognize it is if the IOS was too old...
