Re: Possible bricked 2602i

The image you used is a lightweight image which requires a WLC. If you wanted an autonomous AP you need the k9w7 image. The k9w8 is a lightweight image.

To understand the images, look at this link

https://supportforums.cisco.com/docs/DOC-19607

Now if you have loaded the wrong image, you can always load a different image. Here are other ways to perform this task.

Re: Possible bricked 2602i

Just to add... Your AP isn't bricked. Make sure you check the MD5 hash on the image because if that is corrupt, the upload will fail. Here is a good link for ROMMON

Re: Possible bricked 2602i

Hi Ankur,

What you are trying to do is convert this Autonomous AP to Lightweight & then register it to a WLC then follow the below steps.

1. Download this (ap3g2-rcvk9w8-tar.152-4.JB3.tar) form Cisco

2. Rename your recovery image "ap3g2-rcvk9w8-tar.152-4.JB3.tar" as "ap3g2-k9w7-tar.default"

3. Configure your PC 10.0.0.2 with Mask 255.0.0.0 & GW 10.0.0.1 & put that image on a TFTP server running on that PC

4. Directly connect AP ethernet to your PC & power on the AP using power adapter while pressing the  MODE button

5. Release the mode button after 20-30s & monitor your AP console output

6. You should see AP loaded the recovery image from your TFTP server

If you are trying to upgrade the Autonomous Image then download the below image (ap3g2-k9w7-tar.152-4.JB3a.tar) & rename it as "ap3g2-k9w7-tar.default". Then follow the same process from step 3 onwards in the above.

Below post demonstrate this process & refer it for more detail

Re: Possible bricked 2602i

Then wipe it... Try write erase and reload without saving. Might want to look at the flash and see if anything there you can delete.

Okay... well if you wipe the AP you shouldn't have any issue with the cert.

config t

delete /force flash:config.txt

delete /force flash:private-multiple-fs

delete /force flash:private-config

erase nvram:

end

reload

This should clear up your AP.  Make sure that you clear out your cache on your browser just in case.

Thanks,

Scott

Will wiping the AP clear all the current config? since this AP was resetted to default factory setttings earlier.

Hall of Fame Super Silver

Possible bricked 2602i

It will clear everything... this was lightweight, so we are clearing that info also.  The issue you are having is with a certificate when you try to https, so unless the browser is caching it and giving you the error, then its best to clear out the AP.  factory reset doesn't clear everything out.

Thanks,

Scott

Re: Possible bricked 2602i

So the only issue is when you try to use the GUI using https? Everything else works fine? You have tried to GUI in using a different machine?

Re: Possible bricked 2602i

Your probably need to open a TAC case. Nothing else you can do especially if you already done what I have posted.

Re: Possible bricked 2602i

I was able to get the cert finally tried regenerating the self-signed certficate and it worked. Just in case if anyone needs more information and steps on how to do it follow the links below.
