I have the following equipment for building a test lab. WLC 4402 with Software Version 18.104.22.168M (Mesh) , and Aironet 1252 12.4(10b)JA1 which is still working in autonomous mode. My topology will be mesh as seen from the WLC version. I've already read: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/wireless/ps5679/ps5861/prod_white_paper0900aecd804f1a23_ns337_Networking_Solutions_White_Paper.html
I'm asking is there a way to migrate 1252 from autonomous to LWAPP trough WLC not using the upgrade tool. For instance when you put the WLC and 1252 AP in Layer 3 and start the process from the AP itself ? Another question is , is it possible to migrate autonomous to LWAPP over OTAP for instance when you had already one Root AP which is LWAPP and the other is only autonomous ? I'm almost answered the questions to myself but just want to be sure that i am not missing something.
Thanks in advance
