Introduction

This is a patch release for Prime Infrastructure 1.3.0.20. This release delivers a number of critical bug-fixes. There are no new features added in this release. This patch release must be installed on top of your existing Prime Infrastructure 1.3.0.20.

The bugs resolved in this release provide the following key functions:

Enables pre-backup check.

Provides error handling capabilities during the restore process.

As part of improvements to the backup, a signature file has been added in this patch release. The signature file is used during restore operation for further validation prior to restore so that failures can be avoided. Also, improvements have been made in reducing the backup size. The signature file provides the following key features:

Backup from larger OVA configurations to smaller OVA configurations is restricted and aborted.

Any unsuccessful backup operation with Bkp_Status as FAILED is used for fast restore fail and restore will be aborted immediately.

Recorded Bkp_DB_Size is used for better disk space validation on restore. If the required space is unavailable, then restore operation is aborted.

This release has fixes for maps, client troubleshooting, and client management. For details, see the "Resolved Caveats" section.


Note If you are upgrading from an earlier version of Prime Infrastructure, see the following URL to apply the necessary patches:

Installation Guidelines


Caution You cannot uninstall or remove this patch.


NoteIt is important to back up your system before applying this patch. Store the backup in an external repository. This will help you to revert to the original Prime Infrastructure 1.3.0.20 state. To revert to original Prime Infrastructure 1.3.0.20 state, follow these steps:

Reinstall Prime Infrastructure 1.3.0.20 from an OVA or ISO distribution.

Restore data from the backup that you made before applying the patch.

Before you begin, remove any existing High Availability configuration from your primary and secondary Prime Infrastructure servers. You can do this using either of the following options:

Launch Prime Infrastructure, choose Administration > High Availability > HA Configuration, and click Remove.

Go to admin console and run the ncs ha remove command.

There is no need to shut down your server before installing this patch release. The patch installation will stop the application and restart it again.

There is no need to reboot your system manually after applying this patch.

The patch installation takes approximately 15-20 minutes.


Follow these steps to install the patch to your existing Prime Infrastructure 1.3.0.20 system:


Step 1 Go to the following URL to download the PI_1_3_0_20-Update.1.12.tar.gz patch to your repository:

http://software.cisco.com/download/release.html?mdfid=284652876&flowid=38562&softwareid=284272933&release=1.3.0&relind=AVAILABLE&rellifecycle=&reltype=all

Step 2 Open a console session and log in to the existing server as admin. Enter the password when prompted.


Note If you want to know more about creating a remote repository, see the Setting Up Remote Repositories section of the Prime Infrastructure User Guide:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/net_mgmt/prime/infrastructure/1.2/user/guide/ManageData.html#wp105609


Step 3 Install the patch:

admin# patch install <patchFile> <repositoryName>
 
   

Where

<patchFile> is the name of the patch file you copied.

<repositoryName> is the name of the repository that you configured.

Once the patch is installed successfully, you can verify the patch version using the following command:
