Reset Cisco WLC to Factory Default

Just a small post regarding WLC reset, it can be done without NCS and it’s very handy.

Via CLI:

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.

Via GUI:

  1. login to WLC GUI with valid username and password.
  2. Go to Command > Reset to Factory Default.
  3. Click Reset.
