I setup a few 1600 access points last week but had problems relating to the admin accounts. I created a new admin account in the SECURITY, Administrators section, and deleted the default (Cisco) user. After applying it and rebooting, however, it will not accept the new user and still accepts the Cisco user, even though it is not there. The config, in terms of the user, seems identical to the older 1130 APs we already have in production.
Can anyone suggest what is going on? Is there something else I need to do to activate the new user and delete the default one?
Your better off to console into the ap and configure the username and password as there might be an issue with the GUI. If you still can access using the default, then telnet or ssh to the AP and add the username and make sure it works before you delete the default.
I have tried deleting the cisco user but it refuses to go. I can still logon with it after deleting it. I have also entered the new admin user and password in the CLI, and it shows up in the config, but it still will not accept it in the GUI, although it works for CLI.
Any further ideas? Is there a file containing user information on this model for example?
Looks like a bug to me. If you delete the Cisco username from the CLI and when you issue a show run | in username you should not see the cusco username there. This is also for the GUI. Post your show run-config from the console of the AP.
