  • Cisco Employee,

if you have a WCS controlling the WLC then you can add a new username and password...

if not there was no password recovery till 5.1. before that code you would have to blow away the config and start from scratch.

Go to WCS>Configure>Controllers> and use the pull down menu on the upper right to select "add a controller". Type in the IP address and add the controller. Once added change the local management users by adding a new user with read/write priveleges. Delete the old one and recreate it as admin with read/write.
