Hi

I want to use factory-defualt AP1700 as lightweight access point.
Do I need any operation for that "unified image" ?
(I know it needs converting process  in case of using it as autonomous)
does it operate like RCV image ...?

 

Thanks.

Copy the RCV image into the AP and force the AP to boot the RCV image.

Thanks for reply.

 

I mean how unified image operates.

What will happen when unified image ap joins WLC ?

What will happen when unified image ap joins WLC ?

I don't understand the context to the question.  Please elaborate further.

 RCV files are smaller than the fully functional k9w8 CAPWAP files. When booting rcvk9w8 files, the AP can join a controller to download a fully functional image. The AP will then reboot, use the fully functional image and rejoin a controller to obtain its configuration. if you are looking for details on lightweight registration to WLC then check here

what firmware you use  , "RCV" firmware's main function is to boot up the AP so the AP can FIND a valid WLC.

 

Once the AP finds and joins a WLC, the first thing the WLC will do is push a full CAPWAP IOS to the AP.  The AP will then use this new CAPWAP IOS (disregarding the RCV IOS). 

 

Download the appropriate "K9W8" firmware from here then use the AP as LAP.

It is using the following IOS/firmware stored in flash: "flash/ap3g2-rcvk9w8-mx/ap3g2-rcvk9w8-xx"
