Switching AIR-LAP1142N-A-K9 to autonomous, AP resets while upgrading!
I have a problem that I have definitely not had in the past, and I think it might be to the hardware shipping with newer firmware. I have a few access points that I am trying to convert to autonomous firmware. I am getting halfway through the download and extraction process before the AP decides to release the IP address and try to find controllers again! Then my upgrade fails.
Does anyone know the secret to make the access point STOP trying to find controllers long enough that I can upgrade it? :-)
This is model: AIR-LAP1142N-A-K9
Firmware is: c1140-rcvk9w8-mx
Trying to go to firmware: c1140-k9w7-tar.152-2.JB.tar

Thanks for the heads up Scott. Unfortunately, that did not work. It seems to ignore the no-reload, and it just tells me that the client debugging is enabled. When I do a 'debug capwap client ?' I do not see a no-reload option there. Might that be something only found in newer/older capwap firmware?

While your upgrade process is happening LAP is trying to find a WLC to join, to avoid that you can configure a default-gateway to your LAP (pointing to your PC if it is the TFTP server), in that case upgrade should happen without any failures. By erase nvram you can forced LAP to forget all previously learnt WLCs.
This is what I would do
LAP#debug capwap console cli
LAP#erase /all nvram:
LAP#capwap ap ip address 10.10.10.102 255.255.255.0
LAP#capwap ap ip default-gateway 10.10.10.1 (your PC IP address)
Then you can run archive download command as you already did
Let us know how this goes...I am pretty sure this should work.
