lwapp - Command is disabled

Unanswered Question

We have some 1131 lightweight access points which were once registered with a controller which is no longer available. When we issue the command "clear lwapp private-config" The message "ERROR!!! Command is disabled."

This error message indicates that the static configuration commands are locked out because either:


This command was entered while the LAP is registered to a controller.


The LAP was previously registered to a WLC, but the username/password was not changed from the default.


OK both these things apply. The point is how do I clear the AP and start again since I cannot connect it to the controller???

If you do a show lwapp ip config and the ap is set for DHCP, then you should be able to have that ap join any controllers. If it is set, then I think the only way is to either create a subnet in which that ap will reside and use DNS to stage the ap to a master wlc or convert the ap to IOS and then back to lwapp. I don't know if there is a way with the mode button or not.

Hi Ian,


What a pain (we have all been down this road and at least we won't forget to enter a username/password again :) I was working with some folks recently who were experiencing this same issue;
