Not a Cisco expert here but trying to load config.txt...

So a few years ago we purchased (3) Aironet 1242AG AP's and was able to configure one of then, download the config.txt via the GUI, edit the config.txt file with the unique host name and IP's for the other (2) AP's.  Loaded them all just fine and they all have the same configuration. They've been working like a champ.

We recently purchased (2) more of the same 1242AG AP's and tried to do the same thing but they are not totally taking the same configurations.  The only thing that works is the unique host name, IP's, and administrators login.  None of the security configuration stuck with the load of the config.txt.  Does anybody have any ideas?


Re: Not a Cisco expert here but trying to load config.txt...

What version is the older AP's on and what version is the new ones running?  There were some changes with the config formatting between certain versions.  Make sure all the AP's are running the same version and try loading the config again.
