Installing and Uninstalling CWM 15.3.00, Patch 3.1

This section describes how to install and uninstall CWM 15.3.00, Patch 3.1.


Note Before installing Patch 3.1, CWM 15.3.00, Patch 3 must be installed.


For CWM 15.3.00, Patch 3.1, there is one new limitation. If the non-UNIX user account feature is enabled, the svplus user will not be able to change his or her password through the GUI.

In this section, see these subsections:

Backing Up the CWM Server Database

Restoring the Saved Database

Installing the SNMP Agent Patch

Installing the SSM Patch

Uninstalling Patch 3.1

Table 3 lists the contents of Patch 3.1.

Table 3 CWM 15.3.00, Patch 3.1 Contents

File

CWM

15.3.00-P3.1_CWM.tar.gz

SNMP Agent

15.3.00-P3.1_SNMPAgent.tar.gz

SSM

15.3.00-P3.1_SSM.tar.gz


Backing Up the CWM Server Database

Use this procedure to back up the existing database to prepare for installing the patch. You should back up the database in case a problem exists with Informix.


Step 1 Log in as svplus:

hostname# su -u svplus 

The system prompts you for the svplus password.

Step 2 If they are not stopped already, stop the core processes.

Step 3 Perform a coldstart (drops all network data so you will export only the user data in each database):

# coldstart 

Step 4 Stop the "Guard" process by executing the script /usr/users/svplus/scripts/cleanGD.

Step 5 Stop the "AuditLogger" process by executing the script /usr/users/svplus/scripts/cleanAL.

Step 6 Create a /usr/users/svplus/tmp/dbexports directory, as shown in the following example. (Please ensure that this directory is at least 2 GB.)

mkdir /usr/users/svplus/dbexports 

Step 7 Go to this /usr/users/svplus/tmp/dbexports directory, as shown below:

cd /usr/users/svplus/tmp/dbexports 

Step 8 Copy the /usr/users/svplus/etc/svplus.version into the /usr/users/svplus/tmp/dbexports directory, as shown below:

cp /usr/users/svplus/etc/svplus.version /usr/users/svplus/tmp/dbexports/svplus.version 

Step 9 Export the stratacom, statsdb, and scmdb databases. Save a copy of the dbexport.out file if necessary. (To copy dbexport.out, you need to log in as "root.")

dbexport stratacom (stratacom.exp directory is created in the /usr/users/svplus/tmp/dbexports directory. Save a copy of the dbexport.out file if necessary.)

dbexport statsdb (statsdb.exp directory is created in the /usr/users/svplus/tmp/dbexports directory. Save a copy of the dbexport.out file if necessary.)

dbexport scmdb (scmdb.exp directory is created in the /usr/users/svplus/tmp/dbexports directory. Save a copy of the dbexport.out file if necessary.)

Step 10 Capture the output of the onstat -d command and save it to the /usr/users/svplus/<dbexport-location>/onstat.out file for future reference, as shown in the following example:

onstat -d > /usr/users/svplus/dbexports153_1/onstat.out  

where,

<dbexport-location> = dbexports153_1

Step 11 Archive the /usr/users/svplus/tmp/dbexports directory, as shown in the following example:

cd /usr/users/svplus/tmp 
tar cvf /tmp/<server name>.tar dbexports/* 

Step 12 Use the FTP facility to copy this tar file to another system for safekeeping.


Installing the CWM Server Patch

Use this procedure to install the CWM Server patch.

Before you begin, verify that CWM 15.3.00, Patch 3 has been installed.


Note WANDEST is not being updated and is not included in this patch.



Step 1 Stop statistics collection.

Step 2 Log in to the CWM server as user root:

# su 

Step 3 Stop the core.

Step 4 Download or copy the compressed tar files for the CWM server to a temporary location, such as /tmp:

# cp 15.3.00-P3.1_CWM.tar.gz /tmp 

Step 5 Change to local directory that contains the compressed tar files:

cd /tmp 

Step 6 Remove the disk1 directory if it exists:

rm -rf disk1 

Step 7 Unzip the compressed tar files and untar them:

# gunzip 15.3.00-P3.1_CWM.tar.gz
# tar xvfp 15.3.00-P3.1_CWM.tar  

Step 8 Execute the InstallCWM153Patch3.1.csh script:

# ./InstallCWM153Patch3.1.csh 

Step 9 Designate if you want to use install the patch using the InstallShield GUI or the console mode and continue the installation.

Step 10 Exit from root.


Restoring the Saved Database

If Informix did not come back online after restarting the CWM, use this procedure to restore the database that you saved before you installed the patch.

(The output of the onstat -d command is located in the /usr/users/svplus/<dbexport-location>/onstat.out file; for example, /usr/users/svplus/dbexports153_1/onstat.out.)


Step 1 Log in to the workstation as root:

# su 

Step 2 Go to the /usr/users/informix94/etc directory:

# cd /usr/users/informix94/etc 

Step 3 Follow these steps only if you have configured a separate raw partition for the Informix physical log:

a. Open the onconfig file for editing:

# vi onconfig 

b. Change the PHYSDBS <phydbs> line to the following:

PHYSDBS rootdbs 

c. Change the PHYSFILE <size> line to the following:

PHYSFILE 20000 

d. Save the onconfig file and exit the editor.

Step 4 Go the /usr/users/svplus/scripts/Install directory:

# cd /usr/users/svplus/scripts/Install 

Step 5 Run these commands in the order shown below:

./dbmode
./dbinit
./dbonmode
./dbonspace 

Step 6 If you have the file AddPhyLog in /usr/users/svplus/scripts/Install, do these steps:

./AddPhyLog
./RestartInf 

Step 7 If you have the file dbaddchunk in /usr/users/svplus/scripts/Install, do these steps:

./dbaddchunk 

Step 8 Exit from root.

Step 9 Check if you have configured a separate partition for datadbs using the onstat -d command:

onstat -d 

Step 10 If a separate partition exists, execute these commands to import the database. If no separate partition exists for datadbs, go to Step 11:

# dbimport stratacom -d datadbs -i <dbexport-location> 
# dbimport statsdb -d datadbs -i <dbexport-location>
# dbimport scmdb -d datadbs -i <dbexport-location> 

Step 11 If no separate partition exists for datadbs, use these commands to import the stratacom, statsdb, and scmdb databases:

# dbimport stratacom -i <dbexport-location>
# dbimport statsdb -i <dbexport-location>
# dbimport scmdb -i <dbexport-location>


Installing the SNMP Agent Patch

Use this procedure to install the CWM SNMPAgent (ServiceAgent) patch.


Step 1 Log in to the CWM server as user root:

# su 

Step 2 Stop the core.

Step 3 Download or copy the compressed tar file for ServiceAgent to the local directory, such as /tmp:

# cp 15.3.00-P3.1_SNMPAgent.tar.gz /tmp  

Step 4 Change to local directory that contains the compressed tar files:

# cd /tmp 

Step 5 Remove the disk1 directory if it exists:

# rm -rf disk1 

Step 6 Unzip the compressed tar file and untar it:

# gunzip 15.3.00-P3.1_SNMPAgent.tar.gz
# tar xvfp 15.3.00-P3.1_SNMPAgent.tar  

Step 7 Execute the installation patch script:

# ./InstallAgent153Patch3.1.csh 

Step 8 Designate if you want to install the patch using the InstallShield GUI or the console mode and continue with the installation.

Step 9 When you have finished installing the SNMP Agent Patch software, exit from root.


Installing the SSM Patch

Use this procedure to install the SSM Patch only if you are using the SSM machine. The patch must be installed on a SSM machine.


Step 1 Stop stats collection and disable stats on VXSM.

Step 2 Log in to the SSM machine as user root:

su 

Step 3 Download or copy the compressed tar file to the local directory, such as /tmp:

# cp 15.3.00-P3.1_SSM.tar.gz /tmp 

Step 4 Change to local directory that contains the compressed tar files:

# cd /tmp 

Step 5 Remove the disk1 directory if it exists:

# rm -rf disk1 

Step 6 Unzip the compressed tar file and untar it:

# gunzip 15.3.00-P3.1_SSM.tar.gz 
# tar xvfp 15.3.00-P3.1_SSM.tar 

Step 7 Execute the InstallSSM153Patch3.1.csh script:

# ./InstallSSM153Patch3.1.csh 

Step 8 Exit from root.


Uninstalling Patch 3.1

As part of the patch installation, a CWM uninstall script is installed in the /usr/users/svplus directory.

When you access the uninstall using the wizard, you are asked for the backup file location that you provided when you installed Patch 3.1 initially.

Description
Details and Workaround

CSCsk59941

If the port fails due to a state 5, Trap 50401 (FailedDueToSignallingFailure) should not trigger a user_connection_clear (25116) trap.

No workaround exists.

CSCso47747

An ABR connection with a specific port speed cannot be provisioned on the MPSM-155 card through the GUI.

The workaround is to add the connection through the GUI and modify it on the CLI.

Polling real time stats fails on BPX-SES.

The polling of real time statistics on an SPVC connection type of BPX-SES fails.

There is no workaround. These stats are not supported by BPX and have been announced as End of Life.
