Upgrade Autonomous to LWAP – Cisco Access Points via CLI

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
