I have a WLC-4404-100 with a mix of c1131 and c1232 access points associated. All my AP's are LWAPP (either ordered as LWAPP or converted from IOS to LWAPP), and I have just realised that I have more than 100 AP's to be rolled out. I know that an LWAPP AP can be converted back to Autonomous IOS, but cannot seem to find a definitive explanation about the configuration state of the AP after it has been converted back to Autonomous IOS.
I wish to convert some of my AP's which have already been setup to connect to my controller back to Autonomous IOS. My problem is that they are already rolled out and installed in ceiling spaces etc, and are not easy to physically get to and plug into the console. When I issue the 'config ap tftp-downgrade tftp-server-ip-address filename access-point-name' command on the controller CLI for an AP, when it boots up into autonomous IOS, what is the configuration state? Is it a blank "factory default" configuration, or does it retain a configuration based on how it was configured on the controller? Will I be able to remotely access the AP over the wire at all?
Thanks in advance.
