Hi Dmitry,


I have worked with some other NetPros where this happened (no SSC created) they had to downgrade the AP to Autonomous and run the upgrade to LWAPP over again. Then it worked properly;


Using a TFTP Server to Return to a Previous Release



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Note This section does not apply to Cisco C3201WMIC and Cisco C3201LAP.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Follow these steps to revert from LWAPP mode to autonomous mode by loading a Cisco IOS release using a TFTP server:



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Step 1 The static IP address of the PC on which your TFTP server software runs should be between 10.0.0.2 and 10.0.0.30.


Step 2 Make sure that the PC contains the access point image file (such as c1200-k9w7-tar.122-15.JA.tar for a 1200 series access point) in the TFTP server folder and that the TFTP server is activated.


Step 3 On the PC where the TFTP server is located, perform these steps:


a. Disable any software firewall products, such as Windows firewall, ZoneAlarm firewall, McAffee firewall, or others.


b. Ensure all Windows files are visible. From Windows Explorer, click Tools > Folder Options > View > Show hidden files and folders.


Step 4 Rename the access point image file in the TFTP server folder to c1200-k9w7-tar.default for a 1200 series access point, c1130-k9w7-tar.default for an 1130 series access point, c1240-k9w7-tar.default for a 1240 series access point, and c1250-k9w7-tar.default for a 1250 series access point.


Step 5 Connect the PC to the access point using a Category 5 (CAT5) Ethernet cable.


Step 6 Disconnect power from the access point.


Step 7 Press and hold MODE while you reconnect power to the access point.


Step 8 Hold the MODE button until the status LED turns red (approximately 20 to 30 seconds) and then release.


Step 9 Wait until the access point reboots, as indicated by all LEDs turning green followed by the Status LED blinking green.


Step 10 After the access point reboots, reconfigure it using the GUI or the CLI.

Hope this helps!

can you post the logs of the AP when it tries to join.


You mentioned the join request, but it would be nice to see all of the entries.


Furthermore, you should be able to debug on the WLC to see what it says about this AP. Maybe debug the MAC of the AP will show you something?



Better yet, are any of your APs working or is it just this one that doesn't join?



What Version of WLC?


Hello!


>can you post the logs of the AP when it tries to join.


Could you tell me how can I get logs from AP?


>Furthermore, you should be able to debug on the WLC to see what it says about this AP. Maybe debug the MAC of the AP will show you something?


Well, I tried this- I don't see join request from AP.


>Better yet, are any of your APs working or is it just this one that doesn't join?


There are no working APs, I'm trying to add one AP (of 2 I have) to controller


>What Version of WLC?


I tried several, now it is 4.2.

If you physically console into the AP (is that available on an 1121?) and I think password is like "Cisco" on most APs, you should be able to see the log. I don't have access to an AP right now but I think there should be some kind of debug command accessible from the console to indicate the LWAPP events...


Is the controller and AP in the same VLAN/Subnet? Same switch? Is it the same VLAN/Subnet as other working devices?



Could you post the run-config of your WLC?


>If you physically console into the AP (is that available on an 1121?) and I think password is like "Cisco" on most APs, you should be able to see the log.


unfortunately, there is no serial console on 1121 :-(




>Is the controller and AP in the same VLAN/Subnet? Same switch? Is it the same VLAN/Subnet as other working devices?


They are in the same subnet, and I tried to connect them using one switch.

Can LAP1121 ping the Management IP Address of the 2106?


If yes, then try the following command on the LAP1121:


lwapp ap controller ip address


Does this help?

Leo Laohoo Mon, 01/19/2009 - 13:01

Yes. Console to the LAP1121 and verify if you can ping the Management Interface IP Address or not. If YES, then type the command from the LAP1121:


lwapp ap controller ip address


Does this help?

>Yes. Console to the LAP1121 and verify if you can ping the Management Interface IP Address or not



I can ping from 1121 with IOS (not LWAPP!)


ap#ping 192.168.22.18


Type escape sequence to abort.

Sending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echos to 192.168.22.18, timeout is 2 seconds:

!!!!!

Success rate is 100 percent (5/5), round-trip min/avg/max = 1/1/3 ms



but there is no such command:


ap#conf t

Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.

ap(config)#lwapp ap controller ip address 192.168.22.18

Just for kicks... can you place the ap-manager in port 1 instead of port 2 and see if the ap joins. If so, then you have an issues with your switch port configuration.


Also, can you post the switch port configuration of the ports the wlc is connected to.
