It is possible to update certificate for wlc?

Hi I use old AP to learn and practice wireless. but the AP1142 cannot join WLC 4400. From log message, we can see the certificate failed. Is it possible to update the certificate to get around this? Thank you

Thank you very much for your reply

I tried several ways based on the link. They cannot work, but the something like "certificate failed ..." not show up again in the logging. Please see below. Do not know why I still cannot see the ap can join in after I tried to change system time with different year. Can you please see what is going on? Thank you very much.

Well, I don’t know what else you can do. The equipment you have is so very old. You are better off looking for a 2504 with at least an upgraded 8.5 image and a 3702 that at least supports 802.11ac. Many here used that link I posted to get older access points with expired certificates to join a controller. So if that doesn’t help, then maybe someone else can chime in.

Like Scott said if you use end of life equipment you must be prepared to hack your way around the bugs yourself.  Also read https://community.cisco.com/t5/wireless-mobility-documents/lightweight-ap-fail-to-create-capwap-lwapp-connection-due-to/ta-p/3155111 If you follow the field notice fully (remembering that both your AP *and* WLC certs have probably expired) then it should work. If it doesn't then you'll just have to work it out with debugs and troubleshooting.  You can get 2nd hand equipment that's more up to date relatively cheaply so you should give that serious consideration versus the time and effort you're wasting on end of life/end of support kit.
