How to verify an IAP has been converted successfully to a Campus AP?

After converting IAP 325 to a campus AP using the command line via console after AP reboot, I am trying to verify through the console if the conversion has happened successfully? Both "sh version" and "sh about" provide little clue. Seems like there doesn't exist a single command that can identify the current state of an AP i.e. Instant, Campus or Standalone.

You should be able to verify using the below commands:

 

# show swarm mode
# show ap-env

Take a look here for further examples:

If the AP is successfully converted to a campus AP, you will no longer be able to login. So if you have a login prompt, it is not converted to a Campus AP.

The console of a campus AP (either native or cobverted) will show a prompt like this on the console:

shutting down watchdog process (nanny will restart it)...

        <<<<<       Welcome to the Access Point     >>>>>

password: <if you type the AP group password here>
~ #

If you want to troubleshoot the conversion process, run after the conversion started the command:

show log convert

And on the controller, a 'show log all' to check if the AP is connecting to the controller.
