Aironet 1200: Firmware Upgrade to IOS problem

Hello,

Has anyone been successful upgrading an Aironet 1200 from firmware version 12.02T1 to an IOS Upgrade Image?

I have a unit which has failed and is currently in an unusable state. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Colin

Re: Aironet 1200: Firmware Upgrade to IOS problem

You will need to execute this procedure via the console port on the AP1200.

1. Follow instructions below to Xmodem/download any VxWorks .IMG file for the AP1200. From the console you will see the menu below.

c -- Copy file

f -- File dir

l -- downLoad file into DRAM

u -- Upload file

p -- xfer Protocol

n -- coNsole

r -- Run

s -- System info.

2.Select (p) for xfer Protocol.

x -- Xmodem

k -- 1K-Xmodem

3.Select (k) for 1K-Xmodem

c -- Copy file

f -- File dir

l -- downLoad file into DRAM

u -- Upload file

p -- xfer Protocol

n -- coNsole

r -- Run

s -- System info.

4.Select (l) for downLoad file into DRAM

Once downloaded into DRAM, the following files will appear in the Memory Bank:File.

(Files may be different depending on the version you use)

Memory Bank:File address size encoding type flags

a) DRAM :EnterpriseAP Sys 12.02A 00008720 1214752 gzip Exec 0901

b) DRAM :EnterpriseAP Web 12.02A 00131040 147036 .tar.gz Web 0000

c) DRAM :Inflate Ver. c14o 00154E9C 7496 gzip Dcdr 0900

d) DRAM :350 Series FW 5.03.01 00156BE4 54396 .tar.gz Data 0000

e) DRAM :AIR-CB20A FW 5.03.01 00164060 55232 .tar.gz Data 0000

5.Reformat the Flash before copying the files to the Flash memory. Ctrl-Z to reach the reformatmenu. When the menu appears, press (!) to select FORMAT memory bank, then select Flash, then

upper-case Y to confirm the FORMAT command. Once the format completes, you should be offered thestandard menu you've already seen, and should be able to copy from DRAM to flash.

c -- Copy file

f -- File dir

l -- downLoad file into DRAM

u -- Upload file

p -- xfer Protocol

n -- coNsole

r -- Run

s -- System info.

6.Select (c) to Copy file

1 -- DRAM

2 -- Config

3 -- FLASH

7.Select (3) for FLASH

a -- EnterpriseAP Sys 12.02A

b -- EnterpriseAP Web 12.02A

c -- Inflate Ver. c14o

d -- 350 Series FW 5.03.01

e -- AIR-CB20A FW 5.03.01

8.Select (a) for EnterpriseAP Sys 12.02A

Repeat steps 6 through 8 until all files are copied into Flash.

9.Once all the files are in Flash, restart the AP. The AP should load the VxWorks image and appearto be working. The web browser will not show the Cisco logo, instead will be the Aironet logo.

10.Now do the VxWorks upgrade to IOS process again per the Cisco documentation provided with theupgrade image.
