Mass Deployment of Cisco AP 1220 with script

I'm deploying 20 unit of Cisco AP 1220. Basically, almost all the configuration are the same except the ip addresses and channel. Is there any way to do it in script form.

I try to download the configuration with non-default setting from the access point, the SNMP string and user account in user manager are not downloaded at all. Is there any way to key in this information into ini file which I will use to upload to each AP?

I don't think there is a way of doing this.

There is a method that the WLSE documents: basically the AP's use DHCP to find a boot server and load a basic configuration from it. Then the WLSE or scripts you write can go back and set the configurations that you want.

What I did is use a terminal emulator (like Tera-term) that has a scripting language - hook a pc up to the AP serial port and save a basic configuration to the AP, before installing in the ceiling (hostname, ip address, turn radio off, etc.). Then I went back and updated the configuration with scripts or WLSE.

If your APs are running IOS, you can use a bit of perl scripting and net::telnet::cisco to automate configuration changes
