Migration from autonomous access point mode to lightweight mode on 1530

1500 series is not mentioned on:

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/wireless/access_point/conversion/lwapp/upgrade/guide/lwapnote.html

Can it actually be upgraded just by changing IOS from APto CAP?

Thanks, it worked just fine. Even without "rcv" - recovery image.

The 1530 should have the image k9w8 alreadyin flash:

Autonomous Mode Configuration

The 1530 Series allows the Unified  (controller-based) and Autonomous mode software to be loaded at the  factory on the same hardware part number. This eliminates the need for  separate part numbers for controller-based units and autonomous mode  units.

At boot-up, the default mode is controller-based.  The 1530 will power up and begin searching for a controller. Once it  joins the controller, it will download the active Unified image from the  controller. This is the same operation as other Cisco controller-based  APs.

For Autonomous mode, the user should take the following steps:


Step 1 Power the AP and connect to the console.

Step 2 From the Command Line, enter:

     AP # capwap ap autonomous (# means privileged EXEC mode)

Step 3 The system will respond with "Convert to Autonomous image. Proceed? (yes/[No]):"

Step 4 Type "yes" to confirm.

Step 5 The AP will then re-boot and load the Autonomous image. The unified image is erased.

Step 6 Once the 1530 has booted in autonomous mode, configuration of the AP can done by following the procedure outlined here:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/partner/docs/wireless/access_point/12.4_10b_JA/configuration/guide/scg12410b.html

You can probably issue a dir or show flash: and then if the image is there, you can boot to it.

Example:

config t

boot system flash:/ap3g2-k9w8-mx.v152_4_jb/ap3g2-k9w8-mx.v152_4_jb

Thanks,

Scott
