Hi folks. I have 9 x 1242 AG, I am trying to convert to lightweight but no success.
The AP's are :
|Top Assembly Serial Number:||FTX1045B6V3|
|System Software Filename:||c1240-k9w7-tar.124-10b.JDA|
|System Software Version:||12.4(10b)JDA|
I am using c1240-rcvk9w8-tar.124-21a.JA2.tar as the upgrade image.
Before I go into more details, please would anyone confirm that this is ok to do ? I have a sinking feeling that it's not going to be possible, which is a biiig problem.
I would highly recommend the following:
Only a single network connection from the 2100 to the switched network.
Don't have any APs plugged directly into the 2100, put them on a network switch instead.
The reasons for this is that the 2100s, although they have multiple ports, are not switches. In fact, every interface on the 2100s uses the same MAC address. There are several bugs filed against the 2100 for ARP failing, DHCP not working, PoE not working, APs not joining the WLC, etc when plugged directly into the ports on the WLC b/c of the single MAC address design.
You will have a much better experience with the 2100 series WLCs if you follow those two guidelines.
