Is this AP in lightweight mode? You cannot perform "config t" on lightweight APs.

I was just about to post the same exact question. I have had this issue on two 521 APs. The first AP was autonomous from the factory. The second AP was downgraded from lightweight to autonomous. Same problem with both of them. No "config t" from telnet. Any assistance is appreciated...

Hi Gents,

I have faced with the same issue...

Furthermore I cannot copy startup-config from tftp to aironet via telnet/ssh and even cannot copy running-config to startup-config...

Any assistance is appreciated.
