Cisco AIR-LAP1142N-A-K9 keeps rebooting / loop

Hello,

I have a Cisco AIR-LAP1142N-A-K9 that keeps rebooting, I've done the factory reset (hold the mode button for 20-30 seconds until LED is red). 100+ other APs are up and running fine. Any ideas?

Thanks!

Greg

Cisco AIR-LAP1142N-A-K9 keeps rebooting / loop

Might be that the AP is going bad.  You have 100+ 1142's and this one is causing you issues.  You have reset it, deleted the files from flash and you still see a crash during boot.  I would just replace that AP.

Thanks,

Scott

Re: Cisco AIR-LAP1142N-A-K9 keeps rebooting / loop

Unexpected exception to CPUvector 200, PC = 51C7B8

-Traceback= 0x51C7B8 0x51D228 0x51D90C 0x509978 0x509D80 0x506AB8 0x191790 0x191844 0x57164 0x5746C 0x1A6410

CPUvector 200.  On an AP.  Now this is an error message I've never seen before on an AP before. 

Can I ask you if you can do the following:

1.  Power down the AP;

2.  Hold the Mode button and keep holding it down;

3.  Power up the AP for about 30 seconds. 

I want to ask if you can get the AP into ROMmon.  Then post the output to the command "dir flash:". 

I've got a strange feeling your AP is going to a vicious cycle called crash-boot-loop.

Normally seen in routers and switches, when an appliance goes into a crash-boot-loop, the appliance crashes.  IOS protocol states that every time an appliance crashes, it is mandated to do a "dump" of the crash information into the flash of the appliance (filename is usually called "crashinfo").  However, if the flash memory is full and the appliance attempts to create a crashinfo file/subdirectory, would you believe, the appliance CRASHES again, hence it's a vicious cycle.

Leo,

Thanks, here is the ouput of the dir flash: command. I don't see a "crashinfo" file anywhere and it looks like the flash file system has approx 24mb available.

Re: Cisco AIR-LAP1142N-A-K9 keeps rebooting / loop

Try one of these methods

debug lwapp console cli
debug capwap console cli
erase /all nvram

*******************************************************
Example:

Entered the username and password
debug capwap console cli
erase /all nvram:
[confirm]
undebug all
reload
[confirm]

*******************************************************
Hold reset for over 30 seconds to get to ROMMON

ap:delete flash:private-config
ap:delete flash:private-multiple-fs
ap:boot

Your AP will be factory default

Cisco AIR-LAP1142N-A-K9 keeps rebooting / loop

Thanks Scott,  I've tried this but after booting, it will still crash.

I've managed to delete the "c1140-k9w8-mx.124-25e.JA1" image that the AP downloads from the controller and just boot off the factory installed "c1140-rcvk9w8-mx" image. This works and the AP is up and running without the boot/crash/loop but of course as soon as I plug in the AP to the network, it finds the controller through discovery and downloads the new image and the the boot/crash/loop appears again. Any more ideas?

Thanks,

Greg

I would clear the flash and only have these files

7    drwx  128                      c1140-rcvk9w8-mx

I have cleared all the files from flash except the two directories and the one file as mentioned above and rebooted.

AP connecteed to the controller via DHCP/discovery process and downloaded the "c1140-k9w8-mx.124-25e.JA1" image and rebooted. After reboot, the same thing... crashes and into boot/crash loop.
