1200 IOS upgrade gone wrong


I have upgraded a 1200 WAP to the latest IOS version (123.8) from 123.2.

I deleted the .tar file to creat some room for thenew image, but on rebooting i get the ap: prompt.

Looking in the dir i still have the old 123.2 folder. Can I just delete this?

It also says that my image isn't bootable (c1200-k9w7-tar.123.8-JA2.tar).

Any ideas?

Edit: I deleted the new file and then re-installed the old file to get it back to normal.

Re: 1200 IOS upgrade gone wrong

When the ap: command prompt appears, enter the set command to assign an IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway to the access point.


Note You must use upper-case characters when you enter the IP-ADDR, NETMASK, and DEFAULT_ROUTER options with the set command.


Your entries might look like this example:

ap: set IP_ADDR

ap: set NETMASK


next Enter the tftp_init command to prepare the access point for TFTP.

ap: tftp_init

next Enter the tar command to load and inflate the new image from your TFTP server. The command must include this information:

?the -xtract option, which inflates the image when it is loaded

?the IP address of your TFTP server

?the directory on the TFTP server that contains the image

?the name of the image

?the destination for the image (the access point Flash)

Your entry might look like this example:

ap: tar -xtract tftp:// flash:
