converting a 1310 to autonomous IOS mode

Answered Question

User Badges:

I have a 1310 that I need to convert to autonomous IOS mode. For this I have the 1310 connected to a 2100 WLAN controller. The problem is when I run the config ap tftp-downgrade command the ap returns the following error message

examining image...

%Error opening (Timed out)

archive download: takes 62 seconds

lwapp_image_proc: unable to open tar file


I feel that I should note that the only time I can ping the AP is if it's connected to the management interface of the controller. The same goes to my computer which is acting as the tftp server. Any ideas on what is wrong here would be a great help. Thanks

If you can't ping the 1310 from any subnet other than the management subnet, then it looks like a routing issue. If you can ping the 1310 from the management, you should be able to put your laptop on that subnet and tftp should not ba an issue. It also can be ACL's on the network that might be blocking certain traffic.


Do you see the device trying to access the tftp. I use 3CDaemon for TFTP.... works great. Also make sure you don'at have a firewall on your laptop blocking tftp.

Everything is on the same network the management interface is set to 10.200.4.4 and the AP has a static IP of 10.200.4.106 and the laptop as 10.200.4.105. This is setup in a test environment so those are the only things connected to it. As for the pinging it is only when something is plugged into port 1(management interface) that it becomes pingable.

Well, without looking at your configuration, port 1 is your management and ap-manager interface. You should have that trunked to your switch. This also should be untagged or set to 0 on the lwc. The switch port should be set to native vlan X.


Post your show run-config

Here is a copy of the running-config. Now I do not have the the controller hooked up to a switch. Both the laptop and the ap plug directly into the controller. Could this be the problem?

yes... you need to have the port your management and ap manager is on connected to a switch. the 2106 isn't a true switch.

Ok I attached the AP and the laptop running the tftp server to a 2960 switch. I can ping everything now. However, when I run the config ap tftp-downgrade command I get a invalid AP name. The AP is called ap1. Why does it say that it is invalid?

Same issue the controller can see the ap but if you try to make any changes like changing the name etc. it returns Cisco AP name is invalid. If I do a show ap summary it list the ap with the name ap1 right IP and mac address though.
