Re: What are the different factory reset options for an IAP?

No, it's just an IAP on its own (that's how it was used as demo as well).

Re: What are the different factory reset options for an IAP?

Are you booting it up on a network that has DHCP and access to the internet?  If yes, can you please provide the bootup output from the console?

No, just letting it boot on its own, not connected to any network or device.

Re: What are the different factory reset options for an IAP?

Here is what I do to factory reset on an IAP. I connect a console cable to it and then power up the IAP on a isolated VLAN without DHCP. Shortly after it starts to boot hit the <Enter> key to get into apboot mode. Once in apboot mode run the following commands:

apboot> factory_reset

apboot> purgenv

apboot> save

apboot> boot

 

The IAP will now be factory reset.

I guess I'll start doing the same, don't trust the reset button that much.

 

So once you perform those commands will the Instant SSID appear instantly or do I need to do something else to check?
