Unable to join AIR-AP1231 to virtual WLC


We are trying to join an AIR-AP1231 to our new virtual WLC. (Software Version

To upgrade the AP, we followed this guide:

After the upgrade process the AP boot with this IOS -> flash:/c1200-rcvk9w8-mx.124-21a.JA2/c1200-rcvk9w8-mx.124-21a.JA

and then it show attached messages on CLI.

I read on that discussion :

that first time could be needed a physical WLC. And the one who open the discussion solved installing last IOS.

Is there any other procedure that we can do to solve that problem if we haven't any other WLC and we are using last realeased IOS on the AP?

Thanks in advance
