Unable to reset AP1242 to default

I have replaced removed some of AP1242 from one location (these APs had previously had joined the controller) NOw I'm trying to reset them to factory default so that I can send them to a different location and I'm having hard time to rese them, from the command line it say "command is locked" . When I press the mode button and reboot it only clears the ip add and mask but i can still see the gateway and the host name information. Can someone help me how to reset AP1242 to factory default without connecting to the controller.

Re: Unable to reset AP1242 to default

When you console into the LAP, you flash should contain TWO (2) IOS, namely: The Recovery IOS (RCV) and the LAP IOS. Delete the LAP IOS using the command delete /f /r flash: .

Once the LAP IOS has been deleted and boot into the RCV image, you can run the CLI clear lwap private.

Does this help?
