Manage AIR-AP1262N with WLC 5508

hello,

is it possible to manage a air-ap1262n with a controller like wlc 5500 or wlc 2500?

the official cisco support could not answer me this question for sure.

i have found this old guide to upgrade ap´s to lap´s, but there is hothing about the 1260 in it.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/wireless/access_point/conversion/lwapp/upgrade/guide/lwapnote.html

i am a little bit confused!

the cisco documents tells:

"at_a_glance_c45-636090.pdf"

->

A wireless network with standalone access points offers a low-cost, entry-level

solution that does not require a controller. It is ideal for small-scale networks with less

than 20 access points, and offers base-level wireless functionality with the flexibility to

scale and add services over time by adding a controller.

<-

but the cisco helpline tells that they cant say it for sure - they cant find anything about that it would work and nothing that it dont work.   ...and they have no one they could ask!^^

now I hope to find an answer

thanks and greetings

erik

Manage AIR-AP1262N with WLC 5508

you would need to convert the AP to run the CAPWAP image for the WLC to be able to control/configure the AP.

what image do i use to convert the ap?

Manage AIR-AP1262N with WLC 5508

You use the recovery image, it's under the Lightweight AP IOS software.

WIRELESS LAN RECOVERY

Hi,

As mention by Steve, download the recovery image and then upgrade the AP IOs using the archive command over the CLI and instead of using the IOS image you use the LWAPP.

The supported AP is set by the code the WLC has and not the model of WLC.

The 1262 APs are supported starting code 7.0.98.0

Here is the link where you can check on all the release notes on different codes for the WLC, and you can see which APs are supported on each code.
