IAP-205 factory default not working



I have bought an second hand IAP-205.

I have have tried to reset the IAP. Wich works but after a couple of mins the old config coms back. So I can log in with admin/admin after a couple of minutes this does not work and the old SSID comec back instead of the instant SSID. This is what i have tried:

apboot> factory_reset

apboot> purgenv

apboot> save

apboot> boot


I also tried  these combinations

  • purgeenv"
  • "clear os"
  • "save"

Why is the old config coming back? is it cloud connected?


Thanks for the help!

Probably.  I would contact TAC and see if they can break that connection.  They will ask for the serialnumber and mac address of the AP.
