Introduction

How to recover the hash key off the Access Point and import it onto the controller.

Core Issue

The Lightweight Access Point Protocol (LWAPP) conversion tool saves a key hash file on the PC running the conversion application. 

Resolution

SHA1 Key Hash key can be found in the file stored in Comma-Separated Values (CSV) format in the Upgrade Tool directory.  This is an example:

C:\Program File\Cisco Systems\Upgrade Tool

The file is in CSV format.

Perform these steps on the controller:

Go to  SecurityAP Policies > Accept Self Signed Certificate (check box).

Add these under the Access Point (AP) authorization list:

    • The MAC address of the AP
    • The certificate type
    • SHA1 Key Hash (The key can be found in the file stored in CSV format in the Upgrade Tool directory.)
