Introduction

The Cisco Prime Infrastructure is a network management tool that supports lifecycle management of your entire network infrastructure from one graphical interface. Cisco Prime Infrastructure provides network administrators with a single solution for provisioning, monitoring, optimizing, and troubleshooting both wired and wireless devices. Robust graphical interfaces make device deployments and operations simple and cost-effective.

Cisco Prime Infrastructure provides two different graphical user interfaces (from which you can switch back and forth by clicking the downward arrow next to your login name):

Lifecycle view, which is organized according to home, design, deploy, operate, report and administer menus.

Classic view, which closely corresponds to the graphical user interface in Cisco Prime Network Control System 1.1 or Cisco Wireless Control System (WCS).

For more information on the Lifecycle view of the Cisco Prime Infrastructure features, see the following URL:

New Features and Enhancements

The following topics describe new features and enhancements in Cisco Prime Infrastructure 1.4:

Management Support for WLC Release 7.5

Support for 802.11ac Module

Support for Cisco AP 700

Policy Classification Engine

Detect Dead Radios

FlexConnect Audit Support

Autonomous AP Support

Client Stateful Switchover (SSO)

Management Support for WLC Release 7.5

Prime Infrastructure 1.4 provides management support for WLC Release 7.5 and associated features. In addition, this release provides support for AP platforms such as 3600P and 802.11ac module.

For more information about Cisco Unified Wireless Network (CUWN) Software Release 7.5, see the product bulletin at the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/modules/ps2797/prod_bulletins_list.html

For more information about the features of WLC Release 7.5, read the Release Notes for Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers and Lightweight Access Points for Release 7.5 available at the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps10315/prod_release_notes_list.html

Support for 802.11ac Module

This release provides management support for 802.11ac module—a field-upgradable add-on module to the AP 3600. The 802.11ac module for the 3600E or 3600 AP allows customers to deploy 802.11ac in an enterprise using their existing AP 3600. AP3600 maintains dual-band support 2.4 and 5 GHz, supporting b/g/n on 2.4 GHz and a/ac/n on 5 GHz. Prime Infrastructure 1.4 provides support for configuration and monitoring of the main radio and the module radio (support for additional configuration such as channel width, DCA, and MCS).

Support for Cisco AP 700

This release supports Cisco Aironet 700 Series Access Point. This is an affordable compact dual-radio access point for value-minded customers looking to modernize your networks to handle today's increasingly complex wireless access demands.

Policy Classification Engine

The controller can do profiling of devices based on protocols such as HTTP, DHCP, and so on to identify the clients. You can configure device-based policies and enforce per-user or per-device policy on the network. The controller also displays statistics that are based on per-user or per-device end points and policies that are applicable to a device.

Detect Dead Radios

In this release, the report feature is enhanced in such a way that you can choose the Dead Radios option for inventory reports to show the APs which are not operational. That is, the APs whose Admin status is "Up" and operational status is "Down".

FlexConnect Audit Support

In the FlexConnect deployment mode, APs can survive a controller outage by going into a standalone mode. This is different from the centralized mode in which many configuration items are stored at the AP. For example, if you are performing a routine configuration audit for all the stores that were recently upgraded to the FlexConnect architecture, you need to make sure that all of the APs at the store have received the correct FlexConnect group and that they are mapped to the correct VLAN. You should also ensure that all WLANs active in the store are using the correct security profile.

We recommend that you use WLAN in enabled state to avoid audit mismatches at WLAN-VLAN Mappings at the FlexConnect AP.

Autonomous AP Support

Image upgrade is supported for Autonomous AP in PI 1.4 and the following new Autonomous AP platforms are supported in PI 1.4:

AP2600 - AP3G2 Image Family and Image Version 15.2.2-JA(ED)

AP3500 - AP3G1 Image Family and Image Version 12.4.25d-JA2(ED)

AP3600 - AP3G2 Image Family and Image Version 15.2.2-JA(ED)

AP1600 - AP1G2 Image Family and Image Version 15.2.2-JB(ED)

Client Stateful Switchover (SSO)

In wireless Client SSO, the client state is also maintained on the Active and Standby WLCs, and the wireless clients are not de-authenticated after switchover.

Cable Modem Monitoring

The CMTS is a Cisco Universal Broadband Router (uBR) which enables communication with a Hybrid Fiber Coaxial (HFC) Cable network via a Cisco MCxx cable modem card. Cisco MCxx cable modem cards allow you to connect cable modems on the HFC network to a Cisco uBR7200, uBR7100 or a uBR10k in a Community Antenna Television (CATV) headend facility. The modem card provides the interface between the Cisco uBR protocol control information (PCI) bus and the radio frequency (RF) signal on the DOCSIS HFC network. While service providers continue to use CMTS to manage the cable modem, they can to monitor key cable modem health parameters using Prime Infrastructure.

Support for SFTP

This release enables you to use the Prime Infrastructure server as a Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) server for which you need to create an SFTP user. You can add an SFTP server as an external server in Prime Infrastructure. Also, you can use File Transfer Protocol (FTP), Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) and Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) while uploading and downloading files to and from Prime Infrastructure.

Important Notes

The Cisco IOS 12.2EWA image for the Cisco Catalyst 4948 does not work properly. Cisco Prime Infrastructure supports the Cisco IOS 12.2SG image for the Cisco Catalyst 4948 series. This is because of different sysOId's returned by Cisco IOS images.

For the TACACS+/RADIUS user authentication, the custom attributes related to the new features are required to be added/appended to the existing set of attributes in the AAA server to access certain pages/views. For RADIUS authentication and authorization in Prime Infrastructure 1.3.0.20, there is an alternate method available for the AAA users. Only the user role and virtual domain attributes can be configured in the AAA server (instead of copying the complete custom attribute task list from Prime Infrastructure to the AAA server).

After performing a major version upgrade of the Cisco Prime Infrastructure application, the browser cache on the client machines used to access the older version need to be cleared once so that the data for the old application is removed from the browser cache. Afterward connecting to the upgraded server works fine.

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

Enables pre-backup check - Checks database memory target and swap memory as part of signature file validation.

Provides error handling capabilities during the restore process.

As part of improvements to the backup, a signature file has been added in this 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:

Restore of the backup from larger OVA on to a smaller OVA would be restricted immediately instead of failure occurring during later stages of the restore process.

Any backup file created from an unsuccessful backup will have Bkp_Status in signature file as FAILED. This attribute is used by the restore to detect error immediately instead of failure occurring during the later stages.

Recorded Bkp_DB_Size attribute in the signature file is used for better disk space validation on restore. If the required space indicated in Bkp_DB_Size is unavailable, then restore operation is aborted immediately.
