What kind of controller do you have? If you have an 800, or a 2400 you can use the procedure here to get into the AP: http://kb.arubanetworks.com/cgi-bin/arubanetworks.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=425

You have to plug the AP directly into the 800 port.


You can then stop the AP at the apboot> prompt, then type "purge" and then "save"

This will only work on the 2400 or 800

Re: HOW can I reset AP61 's config without console port

Hi, I'm having the same problem as Luojichen whith an old AP61, but I have the 3200 Controller. How can I reset the AP61 config? since the solution from cjoseph is only valid for 800 & 2400 controllers.

Thanks to all, specialy for cjoseph

Re: HOW can I reset AP61 's config without console port

Correct. You cannot reset the AP61 with the 3000 series like you could with the 800 or 2400 series. You would need a Y-cable (part # CA-SPOE-ADAPT-3)

Since the 3000 series controllers use a gigabit ethernet connection, the pins that would be used for serial over ethernet are not available on gigabit, so it will not work.
