How to Convert an Autonomous Access Point to Lightweight Mode Using a Recovery Image




If you have an autonomous Cisco Aironet access point that you want to convert to lightweight mode, you can use a recovery image file to do so. A recovery image file is a CAPWAP file that has the rcvk9w8 string in its name, such as ap3g1-rcvk9w8-tar.152-2.JB.tar. This file is smaller than the fully functional CAPWAP file that has the k9w8 string in its name, such as ap3g1-k9w8-tar.152-2.JB.tar. When you boot a recovery image file, the access point can join a controller to download a fully functional image. The access point will then reboot, use the fully functional image and rejoin a controller to obtain its configuration.

This article will show you how to convert an autonomous access point to lightweight mode using a recovery image file. You will need the following items:



  • An autonomous Cisco Aironet access point that supports conversion to lightweight mode. You can check the supported models and software versions on the [Cisco website].



  • A PC that has a TFTP server installed and configured.



  • A recovery image file that matches your access point model. You can download it from the [Cisco website] or from other sources such as [Archive.org].



  • An Ethernet cable to connect the access point to the PC.



  • A power source for the access point, such as a power injector or a power adapter.




Once you have these items, follow these steps to convert your access point:



  • Configure your PC with a static IP address in the range of 10.0.0.2 to 10.0.0.30.



  • Copy the recovery image file to the root directory of your TFTP server and make sure that the TFTP server is running.



  • Connect the Ethernet cable from the PC to the access point's Ethernet port.



  • Power on the access point and press and hold the MODE button for about 20 seconds until the Status LED turns red.



  • Release the MODE button and wait for the access point to download the recovery image file from the TFTP server. The Status LED will blink green while the download is in progress and will turn solid green when it is complete.



  • The access point will reboot and try to join a controller using DHCP, DNS, or IP subnet broadcast. Make sure that there is a controller available on the network that can accept the access point.



  • The access point will download a fully functional image from the controller and reboot again. The Status LED will blink green while the download is in progress and will turn solid blue when it is complete.



  • The access point will rejoin the controller and obtain its configuration. The Status LED will remain solid blue when it is associated with the controller.




Congratulations! You have successfully converted your autonomous access point to lightweight mode using a recovery image file.
