First, you have to make sure the new controller is up and running and has an ip address.

Go to Maintenence> Copy Files and copy that file to the controller's flash. Next, go to boot parameters and change the configuration file to the one you uploaded and reboot.

The name of the AP, along with the ap-group are written to flash on the AP and the configuration does not change that. If the new configuration has different functionality for that AP-group, the access point will inherit that functionality. Worst-case, if that ap-group does not exist in the new configuration, the AP will not come up, but show as "Inactive". You would have to then provision that AP to a group that is listed in the current configuration.

Actually when i do this, first i upload the cfg file by tftp,and i choose the file which i uploaded as the boot config-file,then i write memory and reload. After i entered my username and password, i find the configuration was't the file that ip uploaded. It confused me a lot. Can u tell me why?

When you go to the boot parameters again, it should say the file you uploaded. Where did you get that configuration file from? Was it the same model controller?

Yes .The file was copied form the ac ,and then i write erase . I just want to do an experiment that ac's cfg was copied by tftp rather than i write it by cli.By the way , the file was copied from the ac by cli rather than the WEB .
As the steps i said, it didn't work. The configuration didn't change to the file i uploaded. It's the same as the situation before i rebooted it.

It's just wrtied memory on the ac.and I copied it form the ac by tftp. Now the problem is solved.after i uploaded it ,i entered the command copy flash: filename(i uploaded) flash: default.cfg(which is the default boot config-file),then i rebooted the configuration was recoveried.

Make sure you are replacing it with "default.cfg" file name.
