Error when migrating AP 2600 from Autonomous to Lightweight



I am trying to migrating AP 2600 series that came with autonomous image 15.2 to lightweight using the Cisco Prime Infrastructure built-in migration template.

The AP successfully downloads the image from an external TFTP server but fails at updating the environment variables.

The logs show that the AP should download a text file from Cisco Prime but fails to do so:

What can I do to solve that ?

Many thanks for your help,

Hi David,

I think 2600 AP not supported on Prime Infra for autonomous to Ligtweight migration.

PI 1.2, 1.3, 1.4 , 2.0

Only these APs are supported: Autonomous to Lightweight Migration Support

  • Cisco Aironet 1130 Access Point
  • Cisco Aironet 1200 Access Point
  • Cisco Aironet 1240 Access Point
  • Cisco Aironet 1310 Bridge
  • Cisco Aironet 1410 Bridge

Hope it helps.
