Some time ago I had to convert a 2600 Series AP from Controller-based to a
Standalone Acess Point. I’m doing this in the following way: Restart the
Access Point, press ESC in console to enter ROMMON.
After I set up the network and initialized it, I am always checking
the ROMMON variables.
Then I’m doing a simple TFTP copy. As TFTP server for windows I am using
Tftpd32 - Tftpd64, which
is released under the EUPL V1.1. It might be possible to make some space on
the flash memory before copying the image. Also it’s worth to verify the
flash memory if the TFTP copy was successful.
Before I reboot the Access Point with the new image I set the BOOT
variable to the new Image and verify the ROMMON variables again.
