Change Default Enable Password on WAP

I've just become aware of this forum, it looks like a great resource. However, during my initial search I was not able to find an answer to the following issue.

I have 1130AG LWAPPs that I'm deploying to several offices. My corporate datacenter has WLC and WCS. How can I change the default enable password on these LWAPPs?

Re: Change Default Enable Password on WAP

Hi Gary,

I think this is what you were looking for;

Obtaining a Password to Enter into EXEC mode on the AP Console

An IOS LWAPP access point uses "Cisco" as the default enable password, but to enable these commands for easy deployment, you must first provide the access point with a new enable password. This new password enables you to enter into EXEC mode on the access point console.

When you enter the following command from the controller console, the controller sends a username and a password to the access point:

config ap username user-id password pass {AP-name | all}

If you enter a AP-name argument, the username and password is configured only for the specified access point. If you enter the all keyword, the username and password are sent to all access points that are registered to the controller.

From this good doc;

Hope this helps!
