system is powered down without going through BIOS, the LED state in effect at
the time of power off, is restored when the system is powered on until cleared by
the BIOS. If the system is not powered down normally, the PWR LED may
blink even though the SYS LED may be off due to a failure or configuration
change that prevents the BIOS from running.
2.
The Amber status takes precedence over the Green status. When the Amber
LED is on or flashing, the Green LED is off.

Configuring
the Network
Time Protocol
(NTP)
The Network Time Protocol (NTP) is used to synchronize the time of a
computer client or server to another server or reference time source, such as a
radio or satellite receiver or modem. It provides accuracies typically within a
millisecond on LANs and up to a few tens of milliseconds on WANs relative to
Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) through a Global Positioning Service
(GPS) receiver, for example. Typical NTP configurations utilize multiple
redundant servers and diverse network paths in order to achieve high
accuracy and reliability.

Configuring
the Virtual
Router
Redundancy
Protocol
(VRRP)
The Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP) dynamically assigns
responsibility for one or more virtual routers to the VRRP routers on a LAN,
allowing several routers on a multiaccess link to utilize the same virtual IP
address. The system can be configured to run the VRRP protocol in
conjunction with one or more other systems attached to a LAN.
VRRP which manages automatic switchover from one VPN Concentrator to
another in a redundant installation. Automatic switchover provides user
access to the VPN even if one VPN is out of service for some reason, for
example a system crash, power failure, hardware failure, physical interface
failure, system shutdown or reboot.
These functions apply only to installations where two or more VPNs are in
parallel, with the Public interfaces of all systems on a common LAN and with
the Private and/or External interfaces of all systems on different common
LANs. One VPN is the Master system, and the others are Backup systems. A
Backup system acts as a virtual Master system when a switchover occurs.
VRRP works only on LAN (Ethernet) interfaces, not on WAN interfaces.
To configure VRRP:
1.
Select Option 12 from the main menu.
VRRP Configuration

Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol can be defined, each
with its own identifier.

that will enable you to upgrade from 2.1.x to 2.1.4 (x = 0,1,2). To do this,
complete the following:
1.
Login to your system Console port as Root.
2.
Change to the root directory, using the following command:
cd /root
3.
Create a directory, using the following command:
mkdir upgradepack-X.X.X-X
Where X.X.X-X, is the current software version. For this release X
sequence is 2.1.4-17
4.
FTP or copy the file called cos-upgradepack-ocode-AZZZ-Y.Y.Y-YX.X.X-X.shar.gz from your system Software CDROM or software
package to the /root/upgradepack-X.X.X-X.
5.
Change the directory to upgradepack-X.X.X-X, using the
following command:
cd upgradepack-X.X.X-X
6.
Enter the following command at the root prompt:
gzip –d upgradepack-ocode-AZZZ-Y.Y.Y-Y-X.X.X-X.shar.gz

sections describe how to accomplish this.
To upgrade your system from Version 2.0 to a newer release, while saving
your current configuration, complete the following:
1.
Connect to Console port as described in the previous section.
2.
Partition your disk for dual boot. Note that this only has to be
accomplished once. To do this, from root prompt, enter the
following command:
fdisk /dev/ataraid/d0
3.
Within the fdisk command, display a print(p) disk layout by entering
the letter “p”. A display similar to the following displays:
/dev/ataraid/d0p1 * 1 13 104422 83 Linux
# /boot

5.
Toggle(t) the swap partition identification from 9 to 82 by entering the
letter “t”.
6.
Save(w) the partition table by entering the letter “w”.
7.
Reboot your system.
You can also perform the software upgrade when you reboot your system
using the Install Server. To do this, complete the following:
1.
Check to make sure you have the right version of install-cos. To do this:
At root prompt, enter:
/usr/os/sbin/install-cos -h
The following displays:
Usage: /usr/os/sbin/install-cos [OPTION]... <COS
RPM DIR>
Install a C30 release
h, help
p <id>, part of disk to install to, 1 or 2
2.
Execute the following command:
shell> dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/ataraid/d0 bsQ2 count=1
3.
Execute the following:
/usr/os/bin/install
4.
6-2
Reboot and re-run /usr/os/bin/install.

Upgrading the System Software Using the Safe Upgrade
and Rollback Features
Upgrading
from Version
2.1 and
Greater
Newer versions of Version 2.1 and greater allow you to do a full copy of the
Running Partition (RP) to an Upgrade Partition (UP) before actually
upgrading your system software.
To do this:
1.
Make sure you are connected to the console.
2.
Reboot your system into single user mode. To do this, at the root
prompt, enter:
init 1
3.
Once the system boots into single user prompt, enter the following:
/usr/os/sbin/cos-copy-dist -p 2
This copies your entire RP disk contents into the UP. This is a total
disk copy and everything on the RP is copied to UP, including the
application configurations.
4.
Once the copy is complete, enter the following:
/usr/os/bin/cos_toggle other
5.
Reboot your system. Your system is booted into the UP.
6.
Upgrade your system software or applications, as needed.
7.
Reboot if necessary.
If all upgrades are working normally, you are now on the UP (partition set 2).
If, however, your upgrades fail, your system fails to boot up, or crashes, then
you must reboot and when you get the bootup choices for the kernel under
Grub, select the Chains option. Alternatively, if you are able to get to the root
prompt but still do not want to upgrade, enter the following:
/usr/os/bin/cos_toggle other
NOTE: To view the current partition, enter the following:
/usr/os/bin/cos_toggle
The default value is “/vmlinuz-2.4.18-5” and indicates your original RP.
To list possible selections, enter the following:
/usr/os/bin/cos_toggle -l
The “other” value indicates the second part of the disk, which is your UP.
Then reboot system.
To go back to the original partition (RP) that was working properly, reboot
the system.

Upgrading the System Software Using the Safe Upgrade
and Rollback Features
Upgrading
from Software
to a UP While
an RP is
Operational
(Rollback)
Newer versions than 2.1 and greater allow you to install the system software
to a UP while an RP is operational. This is done using /usr/os/sbin/install-cos.
Install-cos can install to either part 1 or 2 of the disk. You can run install-cos
while the system is booted from the install server or the system is running off
the disk.
!
CAUTION:
Caution: Reboot into the UP first, making sure the UP is working, then
upgrade within the UP, leaving the good RP alone.
To install to the UP of your system while the system is running with the RP:
1.
Enter the following command:
/usr/os/sbin/install-cos -p 2 <release directory>
6-4
2.
Manually configure the UP identically to the RP (System configuration
and applications).
3.
Switch to the RP and upgrade the RP.
4.
If upgrades work correctly you are done. If, however, the upgrades fail,
reboot the system. By default the system boots with the functional UP.
