The version of WLSE is 2.5 (WLSE-2.5FCS)

In order to use WLSE 2.5 for VxWorks to IOS Conversion, the AP350 must be running 11.23T, 12.01T1, or 12.02T1 VxWorks. 12.03T is not supported in this release and will not work.

Secondly, downloading the Conversion image directly from is not supported for the conversion images. You have to first download it on to your desktop and then do an Import into WLSE for further use.

Thank you for the reply.

The above link mentions AP350-Cisco-IOS-Upgrade-Image-v1.img, Does AP350-Cisco-IOS-Upgrade-Image-v2.img can be used with WLSE ?

Do you recommend that I revert the AP350 firmware from 12.03T to a lower version? Or WLSE 2.5 will support 12.03T sometime soon ?

What is the best way to convert the AP to IOS ?

(about directly downloding the img from cisco, I did not see the IOS conversion images when I tried downling it directly from Cisco( login thruWLSE). So the one I am trying is the one that was downloaded on the desktop and uploaded to the WLSE.)

12.03T will be supported soon, but not in 2.5. So, if you want to use WLSE 2.5 to do the conversion, you'll have to first downgrade the AP to the required VxWorks version. Yes, you can use the v2 conversion image.

If you do not want to downgrade the VxWorks on the AP and remain at 12.03T, you can alternately consider using the Cisco Aironet Conversion Tool from:

which supports 12.03T (but not 12.04 though).
