Just a small post regarding WLC reset, it can be done without NCS and it’s very handy.
Step1: We need to login to WLC with valid username and password then we need to reset the WLC by using “reset system” at the command prompt.
(WLAN1) >reset system The system has unsaved changes. Would you like to save them now? (y/N) Y Configuration Saved! System will now restart!
Step2: At the prompt it will ask whether we need to save changes to the configuration, enter Yes or No, then controller will reboot.
. . (WLAN1) Enter User Name (or 'Recover-Config' this one-time only to reset configuration to factory defaults) User:
Step3: When we are prompted for a username then we must enter recover-config to restore the factory default configuration.
User: recover-config Press enter and the controller will reset back to factory default.
- login to WLC GUI with valid username and password.
- Go to Command > Reset to Factory Default.
- Click Reset.
That’s all 🙂
