Aironet 1242 stuck in manual boot mode.

I have a Aironet 1242 LWAP that, out of the box, was requireing a manual command to boot. Looking at the boot configuration: Manual Boot: Yes, is how it is configured. The ap has joined the controller, and loaded the newest code, but is still in manual boot mode. Not a good place for a LWAP. I have tried setting is back to factory defaults, but the manual boot is still there.

How to I get this thing to boot automatically?

Go to configuration mode and use the command no boot manual.

Hope this helps.

Re: Aironet 1242 stuck in manual boot mode.

Thank you for the reply. Maybe this will work on an AAP, but a LAP does not have a "configuration mode".

Did figure it out though... at AP: prompt where is want you to type boot, enter "unset MANUAL_BOOT yes", then enter "set MANUAL_BOOT no", then enter boot. After a complete boot, power off the ap and restart. It came up without prompting for the boot command.

Thank you though. You folks from Australia and NZ have provided a lot of good hints.
