Upgrading from VDS TC 5.0.x to VDS TC 5.2.0

Step 8

Step 9

Enter a name and location of the file to save. You must send this file to Cisco support to receive a license file.

Email the license-request.xml file that was generated in Step 8 to Cisco at [email protected]. Please include the following information in the email:

Company name

Sales Order number (SO) or Purchase Order number (PO) if you are requesting a Release license

Indicate whether the license that is being upgraded from is a Evaluation license or a Release license

Indicate what VDS TC software version you are upgrading from

• Specify the Forwarding capacity that is required per integrated appliance. This information is imperative when a PO contains multiple clusters or integrated appliances.

Note Make sure that you are requesting the total forwarding capacity that is inline with the SO/PO.

Step 10 After you receive the VDS TC license for Version 5.2.x from Cisco, save the license file to a location that you will be able to access while connected to the VDS TC server.

Note It may take a couple of days to receive the license from Cisco. Making sure to provide complete, clear, and accurate information in the license request email will help expedite the process.

Uploading the Required VDS TC 5.2.0 Files

Follow these steps to upload the files that are needed to perform the upgrade to VDS TC 5.2.0:

Procedure

Step 1

Step 2

Using SFTP software, such as WinSCP, connect to the management IP address that was assigned to the

VDS TC server. Log in using the user name padmin and the password that was provided by Cisco.

Copy the VDS TC upgrade image file and the updated VDS TC license file to the /tftpboot folder. These are the files that you obtained in the

Obtaining the Required VDS TC 5.2.0 Files

section. Make sure that the previous VDS TC software version file is also in the /tftpboot folder in case you need to perform a roll back.

Note You must have a valid VDS TC license in the /tftpboot folder before you perform the following steps. If you do not, the upgrade will fail.

Step 3 Copy the updated kernel load file, the synchronize_cmdb_files.sh.gz file, and the

VDS-TC_5.2.0_versions_check.sh file that you downloaded from cisco.com to the /tmp folder.

Performing the VDS TC Software Upgrade from VDS TC 5.0.x to VDS TC 5.2.0

Upgrading from VDS TC 5.0.x to VDS TC 5.2.0

“Upgrading from VDS TC 5.2.0 to VDS TC 5.2.1 for an Integrated Appliance Installation” .

Step 1

Step 2

On the PBR routers, stop redirecting traffic to the VDS TC solution.

Immediately after stopping the traffic redirection to the VDS TC solution, you must stop the VDS TC caching service. Follow these steps to stop the VDS TC caching service: a.

Using SSH software, such as Putty, open an SSH connection to the management IP address of the

VDS TC appliance. b.

c.

Log into the system using the username admin. The default password is the serial number of the

VDS TC Integrated Appliance, which can be found either by accessing the CIMC or by accessing the Status > Hardware View page from VDS TC Manager. The serial number is displayed in the

Support Tag ID field in VDS TC Manager.

From the VDS TC CLI prompt, enter the command enable. When prompted, enter the Enable mode password and press Enter. You are now logged into Enable mode and the Enable prompt, console#, should appear.

Note By default, your system serial number is the password for the Enable mode, but this password may have been changed.

d.

e.

From the Enable mode prompt, enter the command oper service stop to stop the caching service.

Wait a few minutes and then enter the command show status. Check to see if the Device State shows

“stopped.” For example: console# show status

Operational state Device state Administrative state

Caution Do not proceed to the next step until the Device State shows “stopped.” You may need to repeat the show

status command several times before you see this status. Wait several minutes between executions of the

show status command.

Step 3

Step 4

Close any open VDS TC Manager windows and ensure that no other administrators are connected to the

VDS TC Manager before proceeding.

Back up the current cluster_conf.xml file before performing the upgrade, in case you need to perform a roll back. To backup the exiting cluster_conf.xml file, enter the export tftp_server filename command, where tftp_server is the IP address or the hostname of the TFTP server to which you want to export the configuration and filename is the filename to create when exporting the current configuration file. You should include the version of VDS TC in the filename to help differentiate it from the new cluster_conf file that will be created during the upgrade process. For example, you could use the filename cluster_conf_5.0.2b161_bkp.xml.

Update the Kernel

Chapter 1 Upgrading from VDS TC 5.0.x to VDS TC 5.2.1 for an Integrated Appliance Installation

Upgrading from VDS TC 5.0.x to VDS TC 5.2.0

– The filename parameter the name of the file to which you want to save the current configuration.

The common filename to use is cluster_conf.xml. e.

Open the configuration file that you exported in the previous step in a text editor or XML editor, and add the following text to the configuration file in the <common> section:

<ntp>

<server-ip>ntp-server1-ip</server-ip>

<server-ip>ntp-server2-ip</server-ip>

<timezone>GMT <+/->offset</timezone>

</ntp> where

ntp-server1-ip is the IP address or hostname of the first NTP server to use

Note To use the local server as the NTP server, enter 127.127.1.0 for the IP address.

ntp-server2-ip is the IP address or hostname of a second NTP server to use, if desired

offset is the GMT offset (+/-), for the time zone of the VDS TC system.

For example:

<ntp>

<server-ip>1.asia.pool.ntp.org</server-ip>

<server-ip>2.asia.pool.ntp.org</server-ip>

<timezone>GMT+3</timezone>

</ntp>

Note The GMT offset value only supports a whole number between 0 and 12. All other time zones are NOT supported.

ntp-server1-ip is the IP address or hostname of the first NTP server to use

Note To use the local server as the NTP server, enter 127.127.1.0 for the IP address.

ntp-server2-ip is the IP address or hostname of a second NTP server to use, if desired

offset is the GMT offset (+/-), for the time zone of the VDS TC system.

For example:

<ntp>

<server-ip>1.asia.pool.ntp.org</server-ip>

<server-ip>2.asia.pool.ntp.org</server-ip>

<timezone>GMT+3</timezone>

</ntp>

Note The GMT offset value only supports a whole number between 0 and 12. All other time zones are NOT supported.

Note The time will not automatically adjust for daylight savings time (DST). If you need to adjust the time for DST, you will need to make this change manually.

Note When you use the date command from the VDS TC manager operating system, you may see that the

GMT offset appears opposite of what you entered. For example if you entered

<timezone>GMT+8</timezone> in the configuration file, when you enter the date command in the operating system, you will see “Tue August 1 14:16:35 GMT-8 2014”. The output in the date command is intentionally reversed for backwards compatibility with POSIX standards.

Upgrading from VDS TC 5.2.0 to VDS TC 5.2.1

Updated kernel load file for VDS TC 5.2.1: Obtain the updated kernel load for VDS TC 5.2.1 from

Cisco. This file is published on cisco.com in the same location as the VDS TC upgrade image file and the file name is linux-2.6.27.19-5-llpf_10--KERNEL_LOAD_1414071783-r44244.tar.

Uploading the Required Files

Follow these steps to upload the files that are needed to perform the upgrade from VDS TC 5.2.0 to VDS

TC 5.2.1:

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Using SFTP software, such as WinSCP, connect to the management IP address that was assigned to the

VDS TC management server. Log in using the user name padmin and the password that was provided by Cisco.

Copy the VDS TC upgrade image file to the /tftpboot folder. Make sure that the previous VDS TC software version file is also in the /tftpboot folder in case you need to perform a roll back.

Copy the updated kernel load file, linux-2.6.27.19-5-llpf_10--KERNEL_LOAD_1414071783-r44244.tar, to the /tmp folder.

Performing the VDS TC Software Upgrade from VDS TC 5.2.0 to VDS TC 5.2.1

Follow these steps to upgrade the VDS TC software from version 5.2.0 to version 5.2.1. If you are upgrading from VDS TC version 5.0.x to version 5.2.1, see

Chapter 4, “Upgrading from VDS TC 5.0.x to VDS TC 5.2.1 for a Cluster Installation”

. If you are upgrading from VDS TC version 5.1.x to version

5.2.1 see

Chapter 5, “Upgrading from VDS TC 5.1.x to VDS TC 5.2.1 for a Cluster Installation”

Caution If you need to roll back to version 5.2.x after you perform the upgrade, you must perform this roll back within 7 days of the upgrade.

Step 1

Step 2

On the PBR routers, stop redirecting traffic to the VDS TC solution.

Immediately after stopping the traffic redirection to the VDS TC solution, you must stop the VDS TC caching service. Follow these steps to stop the VDS TC caching service: a.

Using SSH software, such as Putty, open an SSH connection to the management IP address of the

VDS TC appliance. b.

c.

Log into the system using the username admin. The default password is the serial number of the

VDS TC Integrated Appliance, which can be found either by accessing the CIMC or by accessing the Status > Hardware View page from VDS TC Manager. The serial number is displayed in the

Support Tag ID field in VDS TC Manager.

From the VDS TC CLI prompt, enter the command enable. When prompted, enter the Enable mode password and press Enter. You are now logged into Enable mode and the Enable prompt, console#, should appear.

Note By default, your system serial number is the password for the Enable mode, but this password may have been changed.

e.

From the Enable mode prompt, enter the command oper service stop to stop the caching service.

Wait a few minutes and then enter the command show status. Check to see if the Device State shows

“stopped.” For example: console# show status

Operational state Device state Administrative state

Caution Do not proceed to the next step until the Device State shows “stopped.” You may need to repeat the show

status command several times before you see this status. Wait several minutes between executions of the

show status command.

Step 3

Step 4

Close any open VDS TC Manager windows and ensure that no other administrators are connected to the

VDS TC Manager before proceeding.

Back up the current cluster_conf.xml file before performing the upgrade, in case you need to perform a roll back. To backup the exiting cluster_conf.xml file, enter the export tftp_server filename command, where tftp_server is the IP address or the hostname of the TFTP server to which you want to export the configuration and filename is the filename to create when exporting the current configuration file. You should include the version of VDS TC in the filename to help differentiate it from the new cluster_conf file that will be created during the upgrade process. For example, you could use the filename cluster_conf_5.2.0b124_bkp.xml.

Update the Kernel on the Cache Engines

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

From an SSH connection to the VDS TC management server logged in as padmin, enter the command

su root. When prompted, enter the password that was provided by Cisco.

Enter the command cd /tmp.

To copy the updated kernel installation package file to each of the cache engines, enter the command scp

linux-2.6.27.19-5-llpf_10--KERNEL_LOAD_1414071783-r44244.tar root@ce-#:/tmp, where # is the number of the cache engine to which you are copying the file. For example: scp linux-2.6.27.19-5-llpf_10--KERNEL_LOAD_1414071783-r44244.tar root@ce-1:/tmp

Note Repeat this step for each cache engine.

Step 4

Downgrading from VDS TC 5.2.1 to VDS TC 5.0.X

This chapter describes how to downgrade from VDS TC 5.2.1 to VDS TC 5.0.X if necessary. Only use these steps if you are downgrading to VDS TC 5.0.X. To downgrade a VDS TC 5.2.1 installation to VDS

TC 5.2.0, please see

Chapter 7, “Downgrading from VDS TC 5.2.1 to VDS TC 5.2.0”

. To downgrade a

VDS TC 5.2.1 installation to VDS TC 5.1.1, please see

Chapter 8, “Downgrading from VDS TC 5.2.1 to VDS TC 5.1.1”

.

Note To downgrade from VDS TC 5.2.1 to VDS TC 5.0.X, you must first downgrade to VDS TC 5.2.0 and then downgrade from VDS TC 5.2.0 to VDS TC 5.0.X.

Note Because you will need to stop traffic redirection to the VDS TC system during the downgrade process, you should perform the downgrade during a maintenance window.
