WCS Access Point Reboot versus Cold Boot

Unanswered Question

I'm aware of the process an LWAP AP goes through when a cold boot is performed, specifically dealing with 1130 access points. I've noticed that when using the reboot command in WCS, the process is much shorter than a cold boot (unplugging the AP from power and network and then plugging everything back in).

So the question is - what is the difference between the reboot command in WCS and performing a cold boot? Does the AP retain some information during a reboot and therefore not require as much time to boot up?

Thanks for any help...

You can restart the access point by one of the following mehtods

1. Remove the power and replug the power cable

2. Using the CLI in the ap prompt type boot command. i.e [ap:boot]

3. In the Web interface use the System Configuration Setup page to restart the access point. Click Warm Restart System Now to perform a warm restart of the access point. A warm restart reboots the access point. Click Cold Restart System Now to perform a cold restart of the access point. A cold restart is the equivalent of removing and then reapplying power for the access point.
