Convert AP to LWAPP


We recently purchased a few more 1131 APs for a remote office. For some reason, only one came as LWAPP AP, and the rests are all Autonomous APs.

I have successfully upgraded one Auto AP into LWAPP, it is under control of that office's WLC.

The image I downloaded is the latest one : c1130-rcvk9w8-tar.124-10b.JA3.tar, I am not too sure if I should have used c1130-rcvk9w8-tar.123-11JX1.tar

However i noticed that the product ID still shows up as AIR-AP1131AG-E-K9 instead of AIR-LAP1131AG-E-K9 like the one came with LWAPP. How to fix this, is this matters. Any help will be highly appreciated.


Re: Convert AP to LWAPP

The image you used is fine for the conversion. The AP will use the code it gets from the controller anyway, so you don't need to worry there.

And sorry, but the product ID never changes. The AP was an AP when it was produced, and it will forever remain an AP. It cannot become an LAP, at least as far as the product ID is concerned.
