setup is: 1131 AP connected to 2106 WLC connected to windows xp machine for console access. for testing purposes is not connected to network/internet yet. the WLC will be connected to the internet later.
DHCP scope is setup and gives out address. I can ping the WLC management AND the ap-manager IP from the AP console but cannot ping the AP from the WLC console.
I have read - Troubleshoot a Lightweight Access Point Not Joining a Wireless LAN Controller and most every other tech note.
I can use the DEBUG commands on the AP but I see no output to screen or capture or show logging from the WLC console ie. debug lwapp packet enable or debug capwap packet enable but there is no output that I can see/find.
Does anyone have any ideas? Happy to post some debug logs if I can get any.

Here's your culprit. The IOS you are running is for an Autonomous access point. You need to load/run the LWAP IOS.
... And you don't need to be a Nobel Prize winner to convert autonomous access point to LWAP access point.
1. Download the correct IOS. The LWAP IOS has the "rcv" prefix in it's filename.
2. Copy the "rcv" image into your AP using the command "archive download-sw tftp:///.tar"
3. Make sure the boot variable changes to boot to the "rcv" image.
4. Reload your AP.
