Initialize the TFTP server on the PC, give it the IP address , then add the image to the root directory for the server.
4. Connect the PC and the access point via Ethernet (directly or switch) and console cable.
5. Use Hyper terminal or PuTTY to access the AP, enter the command
Show ip int bri
If the IP address isn't with the same subnet as TFTP server then give it IP, else ignore the next step
To give it IP address (same subnet as TFTP)
Ip address <IP Address> <Subnet>
6. Ping the TFTP server from the AP, if the ping is successful we will continue.
If there is a problem with the ping, check the Ethernet cable connectivity and repeat the ping.
7. After a successful ping, enter the following command from the CLI:
AP#archive download-sw /overwrite /force-reload tftp://<ip address of tftp server>/<filename>
The AP will reboot and try to join the WLC
Second step: After the AP join change the mode to FlexConnect mode
From WLC GUI -> Wireless -> access point -> select the AP -> change the AP mode to Flex -> apply
the AP will reboot again and join in the new mode
Third step (Optional):
From the WLC GUI -> WLAN -> advanced : you can enable local switching (so data traffic wont have to reach the controller each time) and/or enable local authentication if you don't want the authentication to be handled by the controller itself
Fourth step: if the VLANs are different in the remote site than the WLC set VLAN tagging
WLC GUI -> Wireless -> access point -> select the AP -> Flex tab -> Vlan tagging
to fix the tagging between the WLAN in the WLC and the local VLANs on site.
Fifth step (Optional):
if you have some APs where you expect fast roaming for clients on site create Flexconnect group
