I have 2 Lightweight APs which were prepped using the lwapp commands to get it registered with a WLC. They did register with they 4402 controller but they now have lost their registration and I am trying to issue the "clear lwapp private-config" command which results in "ERROR !!! Command is disabled"

Cisco documentation describes this but does not say how to overcome it.

Can anybody tell me how to proceed please.

Hi Ian,

Here is why the command may be locked;

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

So try this;

Once your LAP successfully registers with the WLC, the static LWAPP configuration commands (discussed in the previous section) are locked out and are no longer accessible. In order to re-enable the commands, you must have set the username and password while the LAP was joined to the previous controller.

When the LAP is registered to a controller, use this controller CLI command to set the AP's username and password:

config ap username password

From this doc;

Here is a thread that discusses a recovery process;

Hope this helps!
