Converting Heavyweight AP to Lightweight

Can someone point me to a document outlining this process (specifically for a 1200 series ap)

Here is a doc that explains how to upgrade from autonomous to LWAPP.

Re: Converting Heavyweight AP to Lightweight

Note that if you don't care about preserving the existing config information (such as IP addresses) on the AP, there's no particular reason you have to use the conversion tool; you can install the new code image just like a normal IOS upgrade. If I'm doing just one or two at a time and I have the AP in my hands, I usually don't bother with the tool, but if the APs are already in place or if there are a lot to convert, definitely use the tool.

For older APs (such as the 1100, 1200 or some 1131s) use the conversion tool as it generated the AP certificates that are not otherwise present on these APs.
