This question is actually a follow up to this link:

converting AP from CAPWAP to autonomous - BVI1 interface gets reverted back to DHCP

The method I tried to follow:

AP#debug capwap console cli   
AP5475.d0f5.2ee7#enable
AP5475.d0f5.2ee7#conf t
AP5475.d0f5.2ee7(config)#ip default-gateway 10.10.10.1
AP5475.d0f5.2ee7(config)#int bvi1
AP5475.d0f5.2ee7(config-if)#ip address 10.10.10.102 255.255.255.0
AP5475.d0f5.2ee7(config-if)#no shut
AP5475.d0f5.2ee7(config-if)#end
AP5475.d0f5.2ee7#copy tftp://10.10.10.103/ap3g2-k9w8-tar.152-2.jb.tar flash:

Then my TFTP gets interrupted during 75% of the transferred with the prompt. “Could not discover WLC. Either IP address is not assigned or assigned IP is wrong. Renewing DHCP.”

I made sure to change my PC IP address as 10.10.10.103 255.255.255.0 with default-gateway as 10.10.10.1 and a preferred DNS as 10.10.10.1.

The path of my firmware is C:\tftpd64.400\ap3g2-k9w8-tar.152-2.jb.tar.

Please help.

  • Do you try to convert from autonomous to lightweight (as your title say) or the reverse (as the linked issue say)?

This looks similar to converting AP from CAPWAP to autonomous - BVI1 interface gets reverted back to DHCP

debug capwap client no-reload should prevent the AP from reloading when no DHCP is detected and/or CAPWAP can't join the controller.
