clear lwapp

I have 2 Lightweight APs which were prepped using the lwapp commands to get it registered with a WLC. They did register with they 4402 controller but they now have lost their registration and I am trying to issue the "clear lwapp private-config" command which results in "ERROR !!! Command is disabled"

Cisco documentation describes this but does not say how to overcome it.

Can anybody tell me how to proceed please.

Re: clear lwapp

Hi Ian,

Here is why the command may be locked;

***The LAP was previously registered to a WLC, but the username/password was not changed from the default

So try this;

Once your LAP successfully registers with the WLC, the static LWAPP configuration commands (discussed in the previous section) are locked out and are no longer accessible. In order to re-enable the commands, you must have set the username and password while the LAP was joined to the previous controller.

When the LAP is registered to a controller, use this controller CLI command to set the AP's username and password:

config ap username password

From this doc;

Here is a thread that discusses a recovery process;

Hope this helps!
