Aironet 1200 Series AP in Lightweight Mode

I try to connect an Aironet 1200 Series AP in Lightweight Mode to a Cisco 2000 Series Controller. This AP had a SSC (Self Signed Certificate). I need his SHA1 Key Hash in order to add this AP in the Autorization List of the controller. How can I get this Key Hash? or how can I connect this AP to the controller without this key?

Thanks for your help!

Did you upgrade the AP from fat to thin yourself ?

If so, the hash key is in the file configxxxx.csv generated by the upgrade tool.

If you bought a LWAPP ready 1200 AP, there is no need to add the AP in the authorization list on the ctl. It should join out of the box.

Re: Aironet 1200 Series AP in Lightweight Mode

Hello, it looks like I am having the same problem. I've bought 2 C1232AG ap's. With the normal IOS version. Our distributor told as it was very easy to convert them to lwapp mode. On the cisco site I read that you have to use the convert tool. Our distributor told me it was easier to do it without. I tried the whole morning with no succes. I get errors saying that the certificate isn't right, something like that.

I tried to contact our distributor but the responsible person has a day off today and I would like to go on. (already behind on my time schedule)

Could someone help me?

Thnx!

You need a controller to get the job done.

Go here and follow the procedure:

You have to use the upgrade tool to convert. The upgrade tool does more than just load a new image. It also creates the self signed certificate (SSC). It also adds the AP to the controller authorization list.

I too am trying to find out the SHA1 Key Hash from a previously converted AP.

Looks like the Upgrade Tool 1.0 did not generate the hash properly. I have a zero-byte Config_15Feb2006_174732 file. Any suggestions?

I have run into this problem too, when performing the upgrade without a WLC. You need to have a controller connected, the the key hash is generated properly.

Thanks Chris,

I have a WLC on a L3 interface from the AP. Trying to use Option 43 - getting the IP but not the option so far. It looks like the Upgrade Tool logged into the WLC but didn't enter the cert.

From log files:
