To configure the Cisco Mobility Express solution, you need a console connection to the Cisco 526. You do not need to do anything on the AP because the controller takes care of it. After you have a console connection, you can power on the device and view the boot process. In Example 15-1, notice that if you press the Esc key, you are presented with multiple boot options. The normal selection is to run the primary image.
