    Default Convert from LAP to autonomous mode issue

    I bought some after market 1242's for extended coverage in my warehouse. The current 1242's I have are all set up in autonomous mode.
    When I console into the AP's I bought they are looking for a CAPWAP -Controller obviously from the previous environment.

    *Mar 1 00:46:37.102: %CAPWAP-3-ERRORLOG: Did not get log server settings from DHCP.
    *Mar 1 00:46:38.104: %CAPWAP-3-ERRORLOG: Could Not resolve CISCO-CAPWAP-CONTROLLER.xxx
    *Mar 1 00:46:38.106: %CAPWAP-3-ERRORLOG: Could Not resolve CISCO-LWAPP-CONTROLLER.xxx
    *Mar 1 00:48:38.106: %CAPWAP-5-DHCP_RENEW: Could not discover WLC using DHCP IP. Renewing DHCP IP.

    #sh version
    #Version 12.4(21a)JA2

    System image file is "flash:/c1240-rcvk9w8-mx/c1240-rcvk9w8-mx >>>Lightweight image

    As it happens I do have some more 1242's lying around. I did try and copy via TFTP the image from one of them but some reason I get an error telling me that the file name is a directory and not a file. I've done a sh. flash and got to the below directory but I don't see a *.bin file name anywhere. I've "cd" into the directory but I still cant find the file.

    c1240-k9w7-tar.124-13b.JA >>>>Autonomous image

    I'm guessing that I am looking at the extracted version of the file? First off can i re-use an image from one of my own AP? I dont have a Cisco account to download the correct image for starters so my options are limited.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Yes you can. Review the link below. I would recommend the TFTP method. It will allow you to backup your image from your autonomous AP, and then install it on the new Lightweight 1242's you have. You can't use the copy command to backup your image, as you are correct you are seeing it already extracted. You need to use the archive upload-sw command. Let me know if that works for you.
