With 1252's you have to use the archive command and tftp the rcv image to the ap.

You need to have the lwapp image on your tftp server and use the archive /r /f tftp:[[//location]/directory]/image-name.tar flash: command.

The image has to be renamed to c1250-k9w7-tar.default. You can use c1250-k9w7-tar.124-10b.JA.tar image file and just rename it. Once the ap joins the wlc, the ap will get whatever code from the wlc

Here is an example:

archive download-sw /forced-reload tftp://[ip]/c1250-k9w8-tar.default flash:

Yeah... I think I got confused with converting IOS back to LWAPP... which uses the .default.

Let me know if the LAP's are able to join.

Can you console into that ap and capture the output from the console so I can see the actual error?

Upgrade tool will not work with the 1252. That is why you have to use the cli and the archive command.
