Convert 1815 back to ME

I have a Cisco 1815 that was purchased not too long ago and originally it was joined to a WLC 2504 controller. However, now I want to move it to a different site and want to convert it back to Mobility Express controller. I have followed a few guides online but the AP still starts in a controller mode.

 

The AP is on a different subnet, different location altogether now by the way, so it is unable to see the original controller.

 

AP Running Image     : 8.7.106.0
Primary Boot Image   : 8.7.106.0
Backup Boot Image    : 8.5.120.0
Primary Boot Image Hash:
Backup  Boot Image Hash:
AP Image type    : MOBILITY EXPRESS IMAGE
AP Configuration : MOBILITY EXPRESS CAPABLE
1 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces
2 802.11 Radios
Radio FW version : f1e77cf8ab1e497b17ad53633866ea42
NSS FW version : not available

 

Any suggestions, please?

Re: Convert 1815 back to ME

Hi

 According to the output you shared, the AP is actually Mobility Express.

 AP Image type : MOBILITY EXPRESS IMAGE AP Configuration : MOBILITY EXPRESS CAPABLE 

What is not right?

I am unable to browse the AP via it's IP address and there is no CiscoAirProvisioning SSID visable either.

Hi

 Try "clear capwap private-config".

Re: Convert 1815 back to ME

Thank you... Afraid that command is not available. Any other suggestions?

reset the AP:

 

To reset the AP to the default factory-shipped configuration, keep the mode button pressed for less than 20 seconds.

If AP were lightweight should be there.

 I'd go for reset the AP to factory default and start over.

 Follow this guide and you should be good.
