Replacing the Backup Script
Note
•
This task requires that you have obtained the “backup.cgi” script from your Cisco Systems
representative.
•
This task should be performed before you upgrade from Release 2.4 to Release 3.0 and should only
be performed if you did not need to perform the “Migrating Cisco StadiumVision Director Servers
to Platform 2” section on page 7—the migration process includes completion of this task.
To replace the backup script and modify the timeout value, complete the following steps:
Step 1
Log into the Cisco StadiumVision Director primary server using a SNE TAC account login credential.
Step 2
Go to the folder where the current backup script file is stored using the following command:
cd /var/www/cgi-bin/
Step 3
Rename the original backup.cgi file in this folder to another name using the following command:
sudo mv backup.cgi old_backup.cgi
Step 4
Using an SFTP client on the PC or laptop where you downloaded the new backup.cgi file, transfer the
file to the “/tmp” folder.
Step 5
Move the backup.cgi file to the “/var/www/cgi-bin” folder on the primary Cisco StadiumVision Director
server using the following command:
sudo mv /tmp/backup.cgi /var/www/cgi-bin
Step 6
After transferring the script, verify that the permissions and ownership of the backup.cgi script matches
the rest of the scripts in the folder. To change the permissions, use the following commands:
sudo chown apache:apache backup.cgi
sudo chmod 755 backup.cgi
Step 7
Change the HTTPD timeout value from 120 to 5400 using the following commands:
cd /etc/httpd/conf/
sudo vi httpd.conf

Release 3.0.0-333, an upgrade of required DMP 4310G firmware between these releases is also required.
Therefore, a transition window will occur during the upgrade where firmware Version 2.2.2 Build 2744
for Release 2.4 is not currently supported in Cisco StadiumVision Director Release 3.0, which requires
firmware Version 5.3.4.
To avoid issues during upgrade, perform the upgrade in the following order:
1.
Upgrade from Release 2.4 to 3.0, leaving all DMPs with firmware Version 2.2.2 Build 2744.
2.
Once the Cisco StadiumVision Director upgrade is complete, existing Release 2.4 features can be
expected—but not guaranteed—to work with the Release 3.0/Version 2.2.2 Build 2744 combination.
Be sure that the following guidelines are met while in transition between supported firnware
versions:
– Do not attempt to use any new 3.0 features, such as SSC or External Content Integration.
– Do not use the system for any public events during the upgrade window.
– Do not use the system with a mix of DMPs with firmware Version 2.2.2/b2744 and Version 5.3.4
deployed.
3.
Complete the upgrade by upgrading all DMP 4310G models to Version 5.3.4 using the steps
described in the “Firmware Upgrade Procedure” section on page 12.

where Cisco StadiumVision Director sees the four drives as one volume with a total of 600 GB storage.
It requires that you use root shell access.
Prerequisites
Be sure that the following requirements are met before you can login to the server with an authenticated
account:
•
Caution
If the token is being copied and saved for later use in authenticating with the Cisco StadiumVision
Server, it must be saved exactly as given in plain text. Anything that adds invisible characters, such as
RTF format, will make the copied token invalid for use.
•
Caution
A Cisco representative has obtained a secure token from an internal credential server for the Cisco
StadiumVision Director server to be upgraded.
The authentication token must be pasted into Cisco StadiumVision Director when the Cisco
representative logs in with the SNE TAC account and establishes a new temporary user account with
privileges to perform system tasks. The account will be usable for 90 days.
After you change the password for creation of the authenticated temporary user account, you must log
out and log back in to the server.
