I don't know why you really want to do this. Sooooo unnecessary!

I would use the archive upload-sw command to get a valid tar file which would include the info.ver file.

1.) # debug capwap console cli

2.) # archive upload-sw tftp://

Why would you want to do that for?  Your WLC will control the IOS version.

You don't need to back it up.

Whether you back it up or not, the process is still the same, you need to take down the AP and run the process.

I've got a warm feeling in my tummy that your customer doesn't really understand the benefits to controller-based AP.

Yes, there is a method:  Go to the Cisco website and download it.

NOTE:  I am NOT joking.  The controller-based IOS, RCV and full IOS, can be downloaded from the Cisco website.

Well they have tried that also, but unfortunatly the shipment/contract is belong to SMBS category so they have don't have enough privellages (as per cisco) to download the software directly from the cisco website, further I've written a mail to cisco support to get this clarified, because even though the contract belongs to SMBS category the customer is entitled to download IOS upgrades, the restrictions are only applicable to major software versions. we are waiting for a reply from cisco.
