Caution: Do not use this procedure if a Content Distribution Manager (CDM) is available.
This procedure is used to manually upgrade CDN Enterprise equipment from Enterprise Content Delivery Network (ECDN) 2.X and 3.X to Application and Content Networking Software (ACNS). To upgrade ECDN safely, use the manual upgrade procedure, as explained in the Cisco ACNS Software documentation on Cisco.com.
In some circumstances, you may need to upgrade without access to the GUI. In these cases, follow this step-by-step procedure for either CDM or Content Engine (CE). If your CE does not have a CDM available, or for some reason you received a CE50-CDN instead of a CE50, you want to use the procedure described in this document.
If your CDM failed to upgrade, and the HTTP process does not allow the use of the GUI to perform the upgrade, you want to use the procedure described in this document.

The detailed procedure for the upgrade is included in this section. Each step must be followed or the upgrade fails. Allow 30-60 minutes to complete these steps.
Connect your CE's Ethernet interface to a network.
Turn on the CE, and make sure you have a console connection.
Login to the console as root. The default password is default.
Stop the Sonoma software:
Configure the Ethernet interface:
ifconfig eth0 ip-addr netmask mask broadcast bcast
route add 0.0.0.0/0 gw gateway-address
Clean and mount the file systems:
Copy the upgrade image to /sonoma/state/ftp/export and verify file integrity.
spdist -t ecdn-acns.upg
Login again with the root username and default password.
Set the date:
date mmddhhmmyyyy (MonthDayHourMinuteYear)
Indicate that you are in the process of upgrading:
Upgrade the software:
Note: Some error messages appear if you upgrade from 2.x software, but not from 3.0.x software. Your output will likely be similar to this:
upg-ruby-install: Start upgrade to ruby installation
Run preinstall to install wmt packagepreinstall...
Note: You will see this:
upg-ruby-move: Total free space: 14174164, required: 7340032
upg-ruby-setupflashdevice.sh: Done setting up flash device.
Added ruby *
Reboot the CE.
Note: It is very important not to disturb the CE during this reboot, and allow lots of time for the CE to finish. This is where most of the critical upgrade process occurs.
You will see the bootup, which includes this information:
Cisco CE Booting From Flash.
You will also see the login prompt for Cisco Content Delivery Network, and more messages, followed by a "." every few seconds.
Caution: DO NOT DISTURB THIS PROCESS.
After approximately 20 minutes, this process is usually complete.
You are finished when you are presented with this prompt:
Cisco Content Engine Console
Now that you have a ACNS 4.0.1 box, you want to adjust the partition sizes. Adhere to the instructions in Configuring and Maintaining Disk Storage.
