I recently converted a 1231G from 12.3(7)JA IOS to LWAPP 12.3(7)JX. The AP now tries to join the controller (4404)but receives no join response and reboots. I have heard a rumor that there may be a problem with the certificate that's created on the AP during the conversion for certain older 1231's but can't find anything about it on Cisco's site. Does anyone know where I can find documentation on how to fix this? The errors from the AP log follow:

the time can be an issue. If you are using NTP, let them sit overnight to get up to date, and in synch with the controller usually works.
Remember, that when you run the conversion tool, you can specify the time from the AP or the pc running the tool. So if you're pc is also synched to an NTP, then use the pc time when you do the conversion.
One quick way to see if it is a time issue, is console into the AP, and watch the clock, if it is off, you can change the ntp offset on the controller to see if that helps to get in to join.
