See below, you need to

See below, you need to replace "lwapp" keyword with "capwap"

Workaround 1:1. configure the

Workaround 1:

1. configure the AP to boot the recovery image:
ap#debug lwapp console cli (use "debug capwap console cli" if running 5.2 or above)
ap#dir flash:/ (look for a folder with "rcvk9w8" in its name)
ap#configure terminal
ap(config)#boot system flash:/c1250-rcvk9w8-mx/c1250-rcvk9w8-mx

2. disconnect the AP from the LAN (e.g. shutdown the switchport)

3. reload the AP

4. from the AP console, clear the LWAPP (CAPWAP) configuration:

ap#clear lwapp private-config

5. You can now enter the "lwapp ap" "Ease of Deploy" CLI commands.

Workaround 2:

1. Disconnect the AP from the LAN (e.g. shutdown the switchport)

2. ap#debug lwapp console cli (use "debug capwap console cli" if running 5.2 or above)

3. ap#write erase

4. ap#reload

5. After reloading, you can now use the "lwapp ap" (or "capwap ap")
"Ease of Deploy" CLI commands.

Workaround 3:

ap#test lwapp controller ip a.b.c.d [w.x.y.z] (or "test capwap controller")

The LWAPP AP goes through

The LWAPP AP goes through this process on startup for Layer 3 mode:

  1. The LAP boots and DHCPs an IP address if it was not previously assigned a static IP address.

  2. The LAP sends discovery requests to controllers through the various discovery algorithms and builds a controller list. Essentially, the LAP learns as many management interface addresses for the controller list as possible via:

    1. DHCP option 43 (good for global companies where offices and controllers are on different continents)

    2. DNS entry for cisco-capwap-controller (good for local businesses - can also be used to find where brand new APs join)

      Note: If you use CAPWAP, make sure that there is a DNS entry for cisco-capwap-controller.

    3. Management IP addresses of controllers the LAP remembers previously

    4. A Layer 3 broadcast on the subnet

    5. Over the air provisioning

    6. Statically configured information
