We have some confusion about AP Bundle image upgrade.
1.our Wireless controller is running with 220.127.116.11 version we are planning to move on 18.104.22.168.
2.we have running AP model is 2702,3702, and 1572.
3.i have read out release note for 22.214.171.124, that clearly says for 126.96.36.199 code we need AP bundle for 1570 series to bring back online after upgrade.
We have downloaded 188.8.131.52 image controller right now.
we have not download AP bundle image to controller yet.
1.first we have to upgrade my controller on 184.108.40.206 base image ?
2.second once my controller are up and all AP are UP except 1570 series Access point, we have to download bundle image to my controller.
so i am really confused is this process will work or not please advice.Earliest Thank you.
First check out the Cisco TAC AIROS Recommendations website and make sure you book mark if for future WLC upgrade references. In the 8.5.x train TAC are recommending 220.127.116.11
Correct you need to install both the base and the AP bundle.
The config guide: https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/wireless/controller/8-5/config-
The guide has a step After the controller reboots, repeat step 6 to step 16 to install the remaining file. So
from that the process is:
Upgrade the Controller to 8.5 and reboot
then install the AP bundle, which will probably require another reboot
Confirm everything online.
Hope this helps
This not works for me.
A controller was upgraded from 18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.124 a couple of weeks ago.

Now I would like to install ap bundle image because of some old (1602) APs, but I got this error message:

I think I got error message because of the different secondary image and ap bundle version. Is there any way to upload ap bundle image for the currenty active and running wlc image without need to reboot the wlc?
I tried another WLC in our lab (type 2504), I done the same procedure, and there is no error message during ap bundle upload, works fine.
1st step: upload from to 184.108.40.206
2nd step: reboot
3rd step: upload ap bundle image
4th step: show ap bundle all (everything is ok)
Edit: I tried to upload 220.127.116.11 to the production wlc again without reboot, I set boot point to 18.104.22.168 image (which is now marked as primary), and after that I can upload ap bundle successfully wittout any reboot.
