I tried to console onto the AP and its asking for a password and username for enable mode. I have entered the username configure on the intial AP when it was first installed however this doesn't seem to work.
How can i resett this AP? The Option with holding the Mode Button doesn't work. AP has static IP configured.
Deleting the LWAPP Configuration File to Redeploy the AP
When you redeploy an access point after moving it from one location to another, you must first delete the LWAPP configuration file and restore the access point to the factory default settings. Deleting the LWAPP configuration enables the commands on the access point console to configure the static IP address on the access point, the IP address on the controller, the access point hostname, and the default gateway IP address.
To delete the LWAPP configuration and restore the factory defaults, enter the following command in EXEC mode on the access point console:
clear lwapp private-config
The clear lwapp private-config command becomes available on the access point console after the controller pushes a new username and password to the access point.
Rob, that command is an important one to know... but, you can only use it if you already have access to the console. If the login password has been changed from the default and the AP can no longer connect to a controller (easy to get into this boat if you statically address your APs) then you have to know the console password in order to get to the config.
The only solution in this scenario is to reset the AP to factory defaults by holding down the MODE button for 5-ish seconds while powering up the AP. If this option is not available, for example if the command "config ap rst-button disable" has been issued on the AP, then you're almost out of options.
I'm not aware of any other way to recover an un-resettable, lost-password AP other than to reconnect it to the wired lan on the subnet that it's already statically addressed for, and then get into it through the controller.
