Clear AP1 and AP2 Config

AP1 and AP2 are configure for lightweight mode (instead of in autonomous mode) meaning they will not operate independently without a Wireless LAN Controller (WLC). The WLC provides all the configuration parameters and fireware the the AP needs. The AP's are "zero touch" deployed and individual configuration of the APs is not necessary.
 
To reset the password on AP1 and AP2 of the Security racks, connect to the WLC and follow the example below. The Access Point (AP) must have an IP address in order to associate with the WLC. This IP address can be provided either by DHCP or configured statically. If there is an static IP on the AP, the AP will try to associate with the WLC using the static IP address. If the AP can not find the WLC using the static IP, the AP will automatically revert to using DHCP. Once it has obtained an working IP address through DHCP, it will automatically associate with the WLC.

If the AP does not associate with the Wireless LAN Controller (WLC), ensure that a DHCP server is setup to give the AP an IP address. The AP will not associate without an IP address.
