17 Oct 11 Upgrade Autonomous to LWAP – Cisco Access Points via CLI

Previously I described how to upgrade the Cisco 1142 Autonomous Access Points to Light Weight via the Web GUI. Now this next method is achieving the same via Command Line. It is pretty simple to do it via web however I noticed that it is much easier and faster to upgrade from Autonomous to Light Weight via command line. Below are the steps:

  • First I put the Cisco Access Points (Autonomous) on the wireless VLAN
  • Once they grabbed an IP address, I telnet into the Cisco Autonomous Access Point with the default credentials, usually they are UserName: Cisco, Password: Cisco, [Enable: Cisco]
  • Next I confirmed that I have a TFTP server running on my laptop and the following file c1140-rcvk9w8-tar.124-21a.JA2.tar is present in my TFTP Folder
  • Next I ran the following command, “archive download-sw /overwrite /reload tftp://”
  • I am adding a screen shot of what happened after I ran the command. Once the command is run rest of the process is automatic. After the upload AP will reboot itself and will use the new LWAP image
