How to convert AIR-AP1131AG to AIR-LAP1131AG

Hi,

We bought some autonomous AP with the later goal to convert them. We now run with 3 WLC, we would like to migrate those APs from Autonomous to Dummies ?

How could we do that. We know that i could be done.

Thanks a lot

• AP is connected to the Wireless LAN Controller; and

• AP can ping the TFTP server where the image is located.

Procedure

1. Copy the recovery file to the AP using the following command:

2. Let the AP boot on this image:

boot system flash://.bin

3. Reboot the AP.

OPTIONAL

• DO NOT ALLOW THE AP TO JOIN THE WIRELESS LAN CONTROLLER IN ORDER TO USE THE OPTIONAL COMMANDS BELOW.

• IF POSSIBLE, type the following commands:

 clear lwapp private-config (This will bring the AP to factory default.);

4. Let the AP connect to the Wireless LAN controller.
