1 If you are upgrading an AON Appliance from version 2.1.1 or earlier, you must first upgrade firmware and BIOS on the appliance. See the "Upgrading Firmware on the AON Appliance" section.


Upgrading AON 1.x Releases

AON version 2.1 includes a new software architecture to improve the process of upgrading nodes for future AON software releases. Consequently, this upgrade has several unique steps that differ from previous upgrade procedures. After this migration, future upgrades will be delivered in smaller files, and upgrades will require less downtime to complete.


Note Be sure to read this procedure completely before beginning the upgrade. The upgrade procedure for version 2.x releases is different from that of version 1.x releases.

Upgrading to from AON 1.x to AON 2.1

The steps that follow cover the tasks required for upgrading AMC and AON nodes and the order in which the must be performed. For more detailed instructions on the individual tasks that comprise this upgrade, see the following sections in this document:

Upgrading the AON Management Console

Upgrading the AON Appliance

Upgrading the AON-SM

Upgrading the AON-NM


Note This procedure refers to the default installation directory of /opt/amc. If your AMC is installed in a different directory, substitute that location when performing the steps below.


Upgrade Prerequisites

Before beginning, be sure to complete the following steps:

Download all of the files needed to upgrade your AON environment. See Table 2-2 for a list of necessary files.

Develop a backup and recovery strategy for the devices in your environment. At minimum you should have a TFTP server to store node configurations and external storage to back up your version 1.1 AMC installation.

Verify that the Cisco IOS and CatOS versions for the switches and routers that host AON nodes, and upgrade any platforms as required. See the Release Notes for Cisco Application-Oriented Networking Version 2.1 for software requirements.


Caution You must ensure that any existing deployment requests are in the open (unstaged) state before you shut down AMC for the upgrade. Failure to do so may result in data loss.

To complete the upgrade, perform the following steps:


Step 1 Ensure that all users of ADS have synchronized PEP and message type changes before you begin the upgrade. Deploy these changes to nodes if necessary.

Step 2 Use tar or a similar command to back up the directory in which AMC is installed.

a. For example: tar cvzf amc1_1_backup.tar.gz /opt/amc

b. Copy the backup file to an external device.

Step 3 On each node being upgraded, copy the system and start-up configurations to a TFTP server.

a. Use copy running-config startup-config to save the current system configuration.

b. Use copy running-config tftp to copy the configuration to a TFTP server.

Step 4 Use the following steps to upgrade AMC to version 2.1.0.173.

a. Deactivate any active nodes.

b. Log in to the server running AMC as root.

c. Run aon-amc_2.1.0.173_k9_lnx.upgrade.bin. Near the end of the upgrade, it prompts you to start AMC. You must enter no here.


Note Do not start AMC until instructed to do so in Step 6.


For detailed instructions on upgrading AMC, see the "Upgrading the AON Management Console" section.

Step 5 Run the data upgrade script.

a. Change to the /opt/amc/bin directory.

b. Use ./upgradeData to run the script

Step 6 Use ./amcd start to launch AMC.

Step 7 Upgrade each node to version 2.1.0.173.

a. See the following sections of this document for detailed instructions:

Upgrading the AON Appliance

Upgrading the AON-SM

Upgrading the AON-NM

b. After each node restarts, use configuration terminal mode to enter a new AON configuration so that the node can register with AMC.

c. Restart AON. Nodes will be shown as Registered on AMC, and you must activate each node.


Note You may see errors in aons.log when an upgraded node restarts. This occurs because the upgrade changes have not yet been deployed from AMC.


Step 8 Deploy the upgrade changes from Step 5.

a. Use AMC to deploy the property set changes to all nodes. There should be a global deployment request and a deployment request for each node.

b. Restart the nodes.

The initial bundle sent to the nodes contains the fully upgraded configuration.


Note Ensure that all AON Development Studio users uninstall all previous versions of ADS before they install ADS version 2.1.0.173.



Upgrading the AON Management Console

To upgrade AMC, perform the following steps.


Step 1 Copy the file to the local machine and make it executable.

[root@localhost root]# chmod +x aon-amc_2.1.0.173_k9_lnx.upgrade.bin 

Step 2 Execute the upgrade package and enter the information requested by the application.

Upgrading the AON-SM

In order to make the transition to the new architecture described in the "Upgrading AON 1.x Releases" section, the AON-SM requires a migration image that serves as a bridge from the old architecture to the new. To complete the upgrade, you will:

1. Reload and enter the version 1.1 helper.

2. Install the migration image. This will install a version 2.1 helper image into flash.

3. Reload and enter the version 2.1 helper.

4. Install the version 2.1 application image.


Note The AON-SM contains two helper images, the primary helper image on cf:4 and the secondary helper image on cf:5. For the transition to version 2.1, we recommend you dedicate one of these helper image to be an AON 2.1 helper image and the other helper image to contain the AON 1.1 helper image. This will enable the ability to install either AON 1.1 images or AON 2.1 images as desired.

This procedure assumes that you will use the primary helper (cf:4) for version 2.1 and the secondary helper (cf:5) for version 1.1.


To upgrade the AON-SM to version 2.1, complete the following steps:


Step 1 Use AMC to deactivate the node, then set the boot device to cf:4 and reset the module:

CatOS:

Router> (enable) reset module_number cf:4
This command will reset module 5.
Unsaved configuration on module 5 will be lost
Do you want to continue (y/n) [n]? y
Module 5 shutdown in progress.
Do not remove module 5 until shutdown completes.

Cisco IOS:

Router# hw-module module module_number reset cf:4
Device BOOT variable for reset = <cf:4>
Warning: Device list is not verified.
Proceed with reload of module? [confirm]y

Step 2 When the module finishes reloading, establish a session to it.

CatOS:

Router# (enable) session module_number 
The default escape character is Ctrl-^, then x.
You can also type 'exit' at the remote prompt to end the session

Upgrading AON 2.1 Releases

Version 2.1.1 of Cisco Application-Oriented Networking provides you the ability to upgrade only AMC, while leaving some or all nodes at version 2.1. A mix of 2.1 and 2.1.1 nodes can interact with one another and with a version 2.1.1 AMC.

Additionally, AON 2.1.1 supports online upgrade of nodes. You can upgrade a node from within the AON application. It will download only the data needed to perform an incremental upgrade, then reboot, resulting in a much smaller period of downtime compared to previous AON releases.

Upgrading from AON 2.1 to AON 2.1.1

The steps that follow cover the tasks required for upgrading AMC and AON nodes from version 2.1 to version 2.1.1.


Caution Data loss may occur if you attempt to upgrade from a 1. x release to AON version 2.1.1. You must first upgrade from 1. x to version 2.1.


Note This procedure refers to the default installation directory of /opt/amc. If your AMC is installed in a different directory, substitute that location when performing the steps below.


Upgrade Prerequisites

Before beginning, be sure to complete the following steps:

Download all of the files needed to upgrade your AON environment. If you are upgrading nodes, copy the appropriate files to an FTP server.

Develop a backup and recovery strategy for the devices in your environment. At minimum you should have a TFTP server to store node configurations and external storage to back up your AMC installation.

Verify that the Cisco IOS and CatOS versions for the switches and routers that host AON nodes, and upgrade any platforms as required.


Caution Data loss may occur if deployment requests are staged when you begin the upgrade. You must ensure that any existing deployment requests are in the open (unstaged) state before you shut down AMC for the upgrade.

This upgrade requires you to upgrade only AMC to version 2.1.1. You are not required to upgrade nodes unless you want the benefit of the software defects resolved since the previous release. Should you elect to upgrade only some nodes, your AON environment can operate with a mix of 2.1 and 2.1.1 nodes.

To complete the upgrade, perform the following steps:


Step 1 Ensure that all users of ADS have synchronized PEP and message type changes before you begin the upgrade. Deploy these changes to nodes if necessary.

Step 2 Use tar or a similar command to back up the directory in which AMC is installed.

c. For example: tar cvzf amc1_1_backup.tar.gz /opt/amc

d. Copy the backup file to an external device.

Step 3 On each node being upgraded, copy the system and start-up configurations to a TFTP server.

a. Use copy running-config startup-config to save the current system configuration.

b. Use copy running-config tftp to copy the configuration to a TFTP server.

Step 4 Use the following steps to upgrade AMC to version 2.1.1.53.

a. Deactivate any active nodes.

b. Log in to the server running AMC as root.

c. Run aon-amc_2.1.1.53_k9_lnx.upgrade.bin. Near the end of the upgrade, it prompts you to start AMC. You must enter no here.


Note Do not start AMC until instructed to do so in Step 6.


Step 5 Run the data upgrade script.

a. Change to the /opt/amc/bin directory.

b. Use ./upgradeData to run the script

Step 6 Use ./amcd start to launch AMC.


Note If you are upgrading only AMC, you have completed this procedure. If you are also upgrading nodes, proceed to Step 7.


Step 7 Establish a session to the node you are upgrading, then use the software install command to load the upgrade package.

aon-sm-1> $software install upgrade url ftp://server-address/aon-svc_2.1.1.53_k9_lnx.pkg  
username user password password$

Note Only FTP is supported for online software upgrades.

Step 10 Use AMC to activate the node, then go to Network Node > Manage > Show to confirm that AMC reflects the node's new software version.


Upgrading from AON 2.1.1 to AON 2.1.2

To upgrade from AON 2.1.1 to AON 2.1.2 run the AON upgrade installer— aon-amc_2.1.2.29_k9_lnx.upgrade.bin—and upgrade the firmware for Cisco  8300 AON Appliance series.

Upgrading Firmware on the AON Appliance

If you are upgrading software on an existing Cisco 8300 AON Appliance, the firmware upgrade must be completed before installing AON 2.1.2 or later software images.


Note The Cisco Application-Oriented Networking version 2.1.2 images already contain the updated device drivers needed for the new firmware.



Note Once you upgrade to AON version 2.1.2, you cannot downgrade to an earlier AON software version. This new firmware set works on the older version of Cisco 8300 AON Appliance hardware.



Warning Once you start the upgrade process, do not remove the CD from the system until you complete Step 23.



Warning Do not remove power or reboot the system while one of the updates are running. Removal of power in the middle of a firmware update can damage components.


For more detailed instructions on the individual tasks that comprise this upgrade, see the following sections in this document:

Upgrade Prerequisites

Upgrading Firmware and BIOS

Upgrade Prerequisites

You must be physically present wherever the hardware is installed to manually insert the CD containing the software.

Access the Cisco 8300 AON Appliance hardware through a Remote Console Terminal or directly via keyboard and monitor or a direct serial cable connection. You can use a good telnet client (CRT, secure CRT, HyperTerminal) to connect to the Appliance hardware.


Note Do not use an SSH client because it does not work correctly.


All the firmware upgrades must be done with a device that is physically connected to the hardware and contains all the necessary software. We suggest that you burn the firmware upgrade software file onto a single CD after downloading the file from Cisco.com. The file apl-aon-8342-biosfwupdate.iso contains all of the necessary firmware upgrades.

Upgrading Firmware and BIOS


Step 1 Use AMC to deactivate the node, then insert the CD into the CD drive.


Warning Do not eject the CD until you have completed the entire procedure.


Step 2 From the CLI, properly restart your machine. The system automatically recognizes the CD and boots into DOS, and displays boot information as follows:

Upgrading to AON 2.4

You can upgrade to AON 2.4 from any of the following releases:

AON version 2.1.0

AON version 2.1.1

AON version 2.1.2

AON version 2.1.5

AON version 2.2

Unlike earlier releases, the AMC installer upgrades both the code and the data from the previous AMC installation. There is no need to run a separate process to upgrade PEPs, message types, and attribute domains.


Note Due to architectural improvements, you must upgrade all nodes to version 2.4. A 2.4 AMC cannot manage nodes running previous software releases.



Note If you are upgrading an AON Appliance from version 2.1.1 or earlier, you must first upgrade firmware and BIOS on the appliance. See the "Upgrading Firmware on the AON Appliance" section.


Projects

AON 2.4 introduces the concept of projects to partition the work performed by different development teams. A project contains all of the resources, created by a team. Resources created using previous AON releases are distributed among two projects during the upgrade. All PEP and message type resources are placed in a user project, while all other resources (property sets, extensions, etc.) are placed in the predefined "System" project.

Prefixes are used to identify resources created by individual projects. Each project has a unique prefix which is prepended to the name of each resource belonging to the project. By convention, the predefined "System" project has no prefix. During the installation, you will be asked to specify a name and prefix for the user project, and the prefix will be added to the names of all PEPs and message types. After the upgrade, you can find these resources in the project you specified


Note Due to a defect in AON Release 2.4, you cannot use a number as the first character of a prefix. Use only a letter.


For more details about projects, see the Enterprise Lifecycle Management chapter of the AON Administration Guide

Users

AON 2.4 includes two new user roles, application developer and system administrator. The system administrator is a super user. Users with the following roles in previous AON releases now have this role:

network administrator

security administrator

application administrator

For more information on user roles, see the AMC Administration chapter of the AON Administration Guide.

Upgrading the AON Management Console to Version 2.4


Note This procedure refers to the default installation directory of /opt/amc. If your AMC is installed in a different directory, substitute that location when performing the steps below.


Upgrade Prerequisites

Before beginning, be sure to complete the following steps:

Download all of the files needed to upgrade your AON environment.

Develop a backup and recovery strategy for the devices in your environment. At minimum you should have a TFTP server to store node configurations. The AMC installer will give you the opportunity to backup your database before proceeding with the upgrade. If you elect to perform this backup, you must specify a location for which AMC has write permissions.

Ensure that there are no open deployment requests (DRs) within AMC. The installer exits if it finds open DRs.

Verify that the Cisco IOS and CatOS versions for the switches and routers that host AON nodes, and upgrade any platforms as required. See the appropriate Release Notes for Cisco Application-Oriented Networking for requirements that apply to your AON release.

To upgrade AMC, perform the following steps.


Step 1 Ensure that ADS users have synchronized PEPs, message types, and other data with AMC.

Step 2 Use AMC to deactivate any active nodes.

Step 3 Copy the AMC upgrade file to the local machine and make it executable.

[root@localhost root]# chmod +x aon-amc_2.4.0.58_k9_lnx.upgrade.bin 

Step 4 Execute the upgrade package and enter the information requested by the application.

Step 5 Ensure that ADS users uninstall any previous versions of the application, then they must install version 2.4. Previous versions of ADS will not connect to AMC version 2.4.


Upgrading Nodes to Version 2.4

Due to architectural improvements, you must upgrade all nodes to version 2.4. AMC version 2.4 cannot manage nodes running releases before AON 2.4.

To upgrade a node, perform the following steps:


Step 1 Use AMC to deactivate the node. Establish a session to each node and use the software install command to load the upgrade package.

aon-sm-1> $software install clean url ftp://server-address/aon-svc_2.4.0.58_k9_lnx.pkg  
username user password password$

Note Only FTP is supported for online software upgrades.

After completing the upgrade, the AON node reboots.

Step 2 After waiting a few moments, session to the AON node and verify that it has successfully started. Use the show version command to verify that the node is running new software version.

aon-sm-1> show version
CPU Model:                    Pentium III (Coppermine)
CPU Speed (MHz):              996.909
CPU Cache (KByte):            256
Chassis Type:                 CAT6K
Module Type:                  Catalyst 6500 Series AON Module (WS-SVC-AON-1-K9)
Module Serial:                SAD092007UK
Global Software Version:      2.4.0.58

Step 3 Using AMC, wait for the node to register, then go to Network Node > Manage > Show to confirm that AMC reflects the node's new software version.

Step 4 Use AMC to activate the node. AMC will then deploy upgraded configuration data to the node.
