Managing IOS question

Our company has 1 autonomous access point 1141 series.

We upgrade it to be a lighweight access poin.

I use tftp client and transfer the rcvk image using this command:

archive download-sw /leave-old-sw /reload tftp://

Now, there are 2 IOSes inside the access point, below is the show flash: command

AP_Resepsionis#show flash:

I added the controller address using the CLI and boom now the access point successfully connect to the WLC.

But, something in the network is went wrong and we should configure the access point back to use the old IOS.

What CLI command should I enter to succesfully do this?

Thanks for your help mate..

If the WAP is still connected to the WLC and you want them to be converted to autonomous, then you can use the WLC CLI command:  config ap tftp-downgrade

Hi ,

If the access point is in LWAPP and you want to convert it back to IOS you can use the mode button procedure with a PC directly connected to the AP ansd reload the IOS image.

If the option of config ap tftp-downgrade does not work.
