This document describes the migration matrix for Cisco Prime Optical and Cisco Transport Manager (CTM) service pack releases. This document is updated whenever Cisco releases a new Prime Optical or CTM service pack.
Note Cisco Prime Optical is the new product name for the former Cisco Transport Manager. Throughout this document, both product names are used.
- Cisco Prime Optical is the product name for release 9.3 and later.
- Cisco Transport Manager is the product name for release 9.2 and earlier.
At first customer shipment (FCS), each Prime Optical or CTM release is frozen and a full CD image is created. After FCS, patches are released when a bug fix is required. A patch is not a full CD image but a set of scripts that run on an existing Prime Optical or CTM installation. A patch replaces files and executables, and can launch SQL commands that modify the Prime Optical or CTM database.
Some installation and migration bugs cannot be fixed with a patch because the FCS CD images cannot be modified. For example, if the migration from a patched build to an FCS build is broken, the bug cannot be fixed in a patch because the migration scripts reside on the FCS CD image of the destination release. For this reason, service packs were created. A service pack is similar to a regular patch, but includes a set of migration scripts that fix migration-related bugs.
Service packs differ from regular patches in the following ways:
- Service packs have a different directory structure. A service pack always includes a set of migration scripts, while a regular patch does not include migration scripts.
- Service packs are planned and released at scheduled intervals. Regular patches, which fix critical customer bugs, are released as needed.
- Service packs contain:
– Fixes for migration bugs, which are not included in regular patches.
– Fixes already implemented in other patches.
– Fixes already implemented in other Prime Optical or CTM releases.
– Changes to third-party tools, such as Apache, JRE, and so on.
Note Service Packs are available only upto CTM 9.2. Service Packs are not available starting from Prime Optical 9.3.1, as upgrading from 9.3.1 to a later release is possible only via the Data Migrator Wizard.
