Mode Of Aironet Cisco AP

Hi all,

Please, how can I check the mode of my aironet 702i AP (lightweight or autonomous) because I need to join it to the vWLC and I found that only lightweight AP can be joined to WLC ?

Thank's in advance

Hi,

Hi,

here is doc about autonomous ap image:

https://rscciew.wordpress.com/2014/01/04/understand-access-point-ios-images/

k9w7 – autonomous (or “site survey”) IOS
k9w8 – full lightweight IOS (this is what is bundled in the WLC .aes image, and is factory installed on “mesh” APs)
rcvk9w8 – lightweight recovery image – this is factory installed on lightweight APs, unless a “mesh” image is specified; it lacks radio firmware

and you have :

flash:/ap1g1-k9w7-mx.153-3.JAB/ap1g1-k9w7-mx.153-3.JAB"

Means its an autonomous Image.
