I followed instruction from cisco web site to change LAP1231G to autonomous mode without controller. I get follwing error message when AP tries to connect local tftp server.

image_recovery: Download default IOS tar image tftp://

examining image...tftp:// permission denied

ERROR: Failed to open archive file tftp://

Loading "flash:/c1200-rcvk9w8-mx/c1200-rcvk9w8-mx"

I checked permission and with tftp server on linux windows. Still get the same error msg.

Thanks for Help in Advance

Are you sure about your AP model? I was not aware that the 1231 shipped in LAP mode? Or did you convert it to LWAPP and now you want to go back to autonomous? Also, I have found that if you rename the default tar file at all, it won't work. Is the word 'default' supposed to be appended to the end of the tar file?

Yes, My AP model is AIR-LAP1231G.

I have figured out the error and have resolved it. The issue was with renaming the file. I renamed using windows rename (F2) that appended .tar extension after default (c1200-k9m7-tar.default.tar) later I renamed using CLI then it worked fine.

small thing gave big trouble

Thanks scott

That's why I have a separate file folder called "Gotcha".
