able to receive DHCP IP address from Controller, but not able to join them.

Maybe your controller is running the wrong firmware.

Can you please post the following command output:

1.  WLC:  sh sysinfo;

2.  WAP:  sh version;

3.  WAP:  sh inventory

Re: AP1042N not joining 5508 controller

Rajesh:

Your access points are in autonomous/standalone mode. They are not in lightweight mode.(C1140-K9W7-M). with lightweight APs the part number should be something like K9W8, not K9W7.

Anyway, you need to convert from autonomous to unified mode. This link will tell you all what you need to know about the conversion process:

Besides, your AP model is 1040 and the image installed on it is for 1140!! The image does not match the hardware.

1040 uses the IOS for the 1140.  It works. 

Rajesh,

The output to the command "sh sysinfo" isn't complete.  I need to see the 2nd page.

Re: AP1042N not joining 5508 controller

Leo: i saw this software/hardware issue but when i checked on cisco download site i found that the image available for 1040 is really 1140. So i think this is normal.
