Reset LAP1242AG

I have a AIR-LAP1242AG-A-K9 that I'd like to reset to factory defaults. 

I've done the following

Click "Clear All Config" from the controller

Allow the AP to rejoin the controller

Physically disconnect the AP from the network

If the steps above are done, is the AP truly at factory defaults since it no longer has a controller to communicate with?  Or should I use clear lwapp private-config then reload while the AP is powered on, but not on network?




You can reset the AP to factory defaults either from the controller or manually.

To clear the controller's configuration, choose Commands > Reset to Factory Default > Reset on the controller GUI, or enter the clear config command on the controller CLI. To clear the access point's configuration, enter the clear ap config Cisco_AP command on the controller CLI.

Manually Resetting the Access Point to Defaults

You can manually reset your access point to default settings using this EXEC mode CLI command:

Note This command requires the controller configured Enable password to enter the CLI EXEC mode.


clear lwapp private-config

So I believe you don't need to manually reset the AP to factory defaults if you already done that using the Controller.

Hope that helps.
