Cisco Air-AP2802i no space for new ios

Hello Friends,

 

I have the brand new Air-AP2802i, which should have 256MB of flash memory. But when I am inside, and issue show flash command, I see only 57.5M (as attached). Where is the rest of flash? I have tried to install mobility express IOS,  AIR-AP2800-K9-ME-8-8-111-0.tar, which has 65MB, but the AP was not able to store it in memory, and install it. So I have downloaded AIR-AP2800-K9-ME-8-3-143-0.tar, this is working, but doesnt have Expert View, so the browser menu is not usable for tacacs config for example.

My question is, how to install newest ios (AIR-AP2800-K9-ME-8-8-111-0.tar) to brand new Air-AP2802i? How to check whole flash memory?

 

Thank You

As I can see that you are running 8.3 version so please try 8.5 (.ZIP) via GUI.

Re: Cisco Air-AP2802i no space for new ios

Thank You for your hint. I have tried this and show memory commands seems to be related to RAM, as you can see below:
aszx008#show memory sum
total used free shared buffers
Mem: 1030640 538980 491660 0 8
-/+ buffers: 538972 491668
Swap: 0 0 0

This APs should have 1GB ram so this is it. Regarding controller test command, I see nothing.
(Cisco Controller) >test system disk-usage


(Cisco Controller) >test system disk-usage

I would like to know to check physical ROM memory (flash), where ios is stored. Once I put show flash, I see only 57MB. According to device specification it should have 256MB, but I am not able to see it

Re: Cisco Air-AP2802i no space for new ios

Thank You Sandeep, this command works for me, unfortunately there is size of flash 57.5M, so I assume this APs has only this flash, and specification of 256M flash is bull**bleep**. Can you confirm?

Re: Cisco Air-AP2802i no space for new ios

you are running 8.3 version on AP. 

 

So You must upgrade to an 8.5.x release first and then upgrade to Release 8.8.x.

Re: Cisco Air-AP2802i no space for new ios

Thank You for reply. Is it possible to install new IOS to empty AP? This I want to do. What I see there is no space for it, what I dont understand, since this AP should have 256MB flash.
