How do you reset the password from a console connection on an 1142n AP?

How do you reset the password on an 1142n AP?  I had this AP joined to a controller previously(I don't manage that controller) and now I'm moving it elsewhere on the network(different subnet).  I reset the AP using the mode button down for 60 seconds while powering up, and then typed reset at the ap: prompt.  The AP reboots and then when I try to enter the default enable password of Cisco, that password does not work.  I'm assuming when it joined the controller the controller folks have a password that gets put on it but the reset of the AP does not reset that password.

Any help would be appreciated.



I have this problem too.

Make sure the LAP boots up using the "rcv" IOS image.  When it does, in enable mode, enter the command "clear lwapp private".   Hope this helps.
