I have got an AIR-CAP2702I-E-K9. Is it possible to make it work in autonomous mode. As per the data sheet it will work both in controller based and stand alone. But how ?? Need to change the image ?? Now it has a combined image.
Thanks in advance.
That's not working for this new concept (of a single unified image). There must be a command or so to toggle between autonomous and lightweight...
available commands in enable mode:
access-profile Apply user-profile to interface
capwap capwap exec commands
cd Change current directory
clear Reset functions
clock Manage the system clock
crypto Encryption related commands.
debug Debugging functions (see also 'undebug')
delete Delete a file
dir List files on a filesystem
disable Turn off privileged commands
do-exec Mode-independent "do-exec" prefix support
enable Turn on privileged commands
exit Exit from the EXEC
fsck Fsck a filesystem
help Description of the interactive help system

mkdir Create new directory
monitor Monitoring different system events
more Display the contents of a file

Unfortunately Autonomous mode and Controller modes are still separate images.
ap3g2-k9w8-tar.152-4.JB5.tar for Autonomous (SAP) mode
ap3g2-rcvk9w8-tar.152-4.JB5.tar for Controller (CAP) mode
Salodh points you to the document that explains the process.
So much for making site surveys easy..
Be aware that the autonomous IOS for the 2700 has limited functionality.
Because the 2700 is new, the autonomous IOS is for wireless site-survey only. It's not meant to service clients as of yet.
That did no do the trick. Both are lightweight. I tried them both without succes.
The story of a unified image is not true i think. If it was true you should expect at least some line of text in the release note about this major change.
But i find out that the images Cisco provide for the 2700 series have the same checksum as the lightweigth images for the 3700 series. Only they will give you a choice between lightweigth and autonomous for the 3700 series which i can't find for the 2700 series.
The fact that they share the same lightweigth images makes me think that the autonomous image is probably the same for both. Only Cisco forget to make a choice option in the download section.
I'll try the 3700 autonomous on my brandnew useless (have no WLC) 2700 AP.
It is working. so far so good, no problems. i'll try tomorrow if everything is working well.
It looks like Cisco makes a mistake here by not providing a proper image for the first customers of the 2702... Well they did but not on the correct place...
(from lightweight recovery image)
-The debug capwap methode did not work due to the forced dhcp option.
debug capwap console cli
did the trick. send ap3g2-k9w7-tar.152-4.JB5.tar using your favorite tftp server software. fix the manual boot flag and done.
The only problems i have so far are:
-The homepage of the http interface displays: "Cisco Aironet 3600 Series Access Point". Remarkable because it is a 3700 series image. but they probably share the same image to.
-The summary page shows some wrong values: Radio1-802.11AC MAC address is "is" in stead of the 12 digits. The transmission rate shows "9.3Mb/s" Not what i was expecting.
-I can't change any settiings in the Radio1-802.11n 5GHz settings page. The webpage did not collect all the settings and on apply the form refuse to send back.
I don't know if this are well know errors for the 3700 (and 3600) series. I hope Cisco will solve this and make an autonomous image section for the 2700 series.
an you supply a little better detail on how you got the image uploaded? I boot the AP in manual boot and get to the
But from here, if I try to send xmodem from Secure CRT it just times out.
I'm not sure how to get the IOS image on this AP.
Give your computer the 10.0.0.1 (subnet 255.255.255.0) ip address. make sure it is on the same network as the access point.
start i.e. tftp_32 and point it to the directory which contains the image file.
on the console type:
set IP_ADDR 10.0.0.2
set NETMASK 255.255.255.0
tar –xtract tftp://10.0.0.1/ap3g2-k9w7-tar.152-4.JB5.tar flash:
take a nice cup of coffee and wait....
set IP_ADDR 172.31.170.226
set NETMASK 255.255.255.0
set DEFAULT_ROUTER 172.31.170.1
tar -xtract tftp://IP_TFTP_SERVER/ap3g2-k9w7-tar.153-3.JC.TAR flash:
set BOOT flash:/ap3g2-k9w7-mx.153-3.JC/ap3g2-k9w7-mx.153-3.JC
Thanks for the replies.
Quite disappointed in fact. I was about to buy a number of 2702 devices and to upgrade my my WLC code to 7.6.XXX from 7.0
Guys how is your experience with 2702 with a WLC code version 7.6.XXX ??
