I have a lwapp 1130 here and it's no longer associated with the controller. I issued the clear lwapp private-config, it went through and cleared the config. Now when I try to issue the lwapp commands to set the ip and such i get ERROR!!! Command is disabled. I read that this means the static configuration is locked, but it did not say how to "unlock" it. Any ideas or suggestions on how to get this re-enabled.

In case anybody else gets stuck like I did, here's the procedure we eventually knocked together for recovering our locked out 1240AG AP's:
Recovery of Cisco 1240AG AP
This procedure tested working 14/02/08 with an AP with the default WLAN controller password left in.
â¢ Cisco IOS WAP image (c1240-k9-w7-mx.124-10.b.JA)
â¢ Cisco LWAPP recovery image (c1240-rcvk9w8-tar.123-7JX.tar)
â¢ Cisco LWAPP upgrade tool
â¢ TFTP Server
â¢ Local PSU (not POE)
Local PSU is required - process doesn't appear to work with Ethernet connected as boot doesn't stop.
Power up WAP holding MODE button until LED turns Purple (approx 20 secs)
Console should go through boot banners, notice no Ethernet and dump to ap: prompt.
(message confirming tftp available should come back)
Plug in Ethernet on correct vlan to see WLAN controller (i.e. a.a.a.x).
Via your friendly local tftp server boot off a full IP image, in this case I extracted from the full .tar file and placed it on tftp serverâ¦
ap: boot tftp://x.x.x.x/c1240-k9-w7-mx.124-10.b.JA
AP should boot to ap> prompt and initialise. It may well generate r0.core and r1.core dump files as radio firmware not available.
ap> en (password in our case was the default) ap# conf t
ap(config)# int bvi1
ap(config-if)# ip address a.a.a.a m.m.m.m
ap(config-if)# line vty 0 4
ap(config-line)# login local
ap(config)# username test password aptest
Once this is done the AP should be alive on the network and you should be able to ping and telnet to it and logon. Enable secret will still be the default password.
Now you need to put the logon details in an ip.txt file for the Cisco WLAN recovery tool, we used the recovery tool's own tftp server and didn't enter WLC details.
Click Start and Cisco tool should contact the AP, telnet in, modify the config and download the recovery image and a basic config. Once done it will reboot the AP and it will go into lwapp discovery mode.
