How to recover AP that's no longer visible in controller after bridge mode enabled?

How to recover and troubleshoot an AP that was changed to bridge mode and subsequently lost connection to the controller?  Tried toggling switch ports to force reboot, however unsuccessful.  Curious if there's a solution without having to manually get to these APs.

 

Thanks!

Hi,

In order to configure the bridge in Local Mode, complete these steps:

Go to the WLC GUI and choose Wireless. It displays the list of APs that are currently registered to the WLC. Click on the AP for which you need to change the mode.

Check the option AP mode. If it says Bridge, then change it back to Local. This changes the Bridge AP to Normal AP.
