I have installed a 4402 WLC with 6 x Lightweight Access Points. I prepped the WAPs initially using the lwapp commands. The Controller found and registered the WAPs so no problem there; however, we unpluggged the WAPs from the 2960 POE switch and then plugged them back in. The WLC could not find them. I went in through the console port of the WAPs. They had lost the address of the WLC from the configuration. I issued the following commands:
clear lwapp private-config
lwapp ap hostname xxx
lwapp ap ip address x.x.x.x
lwapp ap ip default-gateway y.y.y.y
lwapp ap controller ip address z.z.z.z
The configuration is now complete and correct.
However the controller still does not recognise the WAPs and register them.
Question 1 - how do I stop the WAPs constantly rebooting themselves because they cannot register as it is very difficult to do anything with them.
Question 2 - the WAPs have all the details necessary to contact and register with the controller, so why is the controller not recognising them?
