AP1261N Upgrade tool not supported

Hi,

I have an AP 1261N that i wish to convert to LWAPP but when i try the upgrade tool it says that it is not supported.

Below is the log i recieve from the tool:

2013/10/02 10:47:46 DEBUG      172.22.200.201      Validating IP address

2013/10/02 10:47:48 ERROR      172.22.200.201      AP is not supported by the Upgrade Tool

Is there a newer version for the upgrade tool to support 1260 series or the AP itself cannot be converted?

if it cannot be converted can someone direct me to a post or link of AP models that cannot be converted.

Thanks!

If you want to upgrade to CAPWAP, then just copy the "RCV" file into the AP, change the boot string and presto! you are done.

Hi Leo,

Are all APs that have LAP counter parts can be converted this way? how do I change the bootstring? Do I still need to extract it?

how do I change the bootstring

config t

boot system flash:directory/IOS_filename.bin

reload

Do I still need to extract it?

Yes you do.  Use the "archive download-sw" command to self-extract.

Hi Leo,

I will try this method sometime next week. another question, do i have to delete the IOS on the AP for this to work?

That's optional because once the AP joins the controller, the controller will then push the full CAPWAP IOS and overwrite-and-delete the autonomous IOS.

For me, I always delete the autonomous IOS because I'm too lazy to change the boot string.  LOL!

Download the LWAPP image(W8) from the cisco website and get the console access the AP and just issue the command..

archive download-sw/overwrite/force-reload tftfp:////
