This is a patch release for Cisco Prime Infrastructure1.4 (18.104.22.168). This patch must be installed on top of your existing Prime Infrastructure 1.4. This release supports two new AP platforms – Cisco 3700 and Cisco 1530 series access points (supported by WLC 22.214.171.124). This release also delivers a number of critical bug fixes. The update 1 for Prime Infrastructure 1.4 enables you to manage Cisco WLC 126.96.36.199 with the features of Cisco WLC 188.8.131.52 and earlier releases. This release does not support any new features of Cisco WLC 184.108.40.206.

CautionWe do not recommend to uninstall or remove this patch.
Note • It 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 1.4 state. To revert to original Prime Infrastructure 1.4 state, follow these steps:
– Reinstall Prime Infrastructure 1.4 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.
– At the admin console 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 1.4 system:

The Cisco IOS 12.2EWA image for the Cisco Catalyst 4948 does not work properly. Cisco Prime Infrastructure supports the Cisco IOS Release 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 220.127.116.11, 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 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.
Prime Infrastructure uses the "show run-config commands" command to archive the configuration from WLC, but passwords are masked with asterisk characters (*) in the command output. When you rollback the archived configuration which contains the configuration lines with masked passwords, the operation fails.
You cannot apply wIPS profile to WLC 7.5 and earlier release using Prime Infrastructure 1.4.x with MSE 7.6 release.
SWIM Image Management and Supported Devices—Table 3 provides a brief overview about the different processes involved in managing software images and whether the processes are supported in the Unified Wireless LAN Controllers and devices.
Table 3 Software Image Management Processes and Supported Devices
Software Image Management Processes
Catalyst 3850 Switches (Cisco IOS XE 3.2.1)
Image import from device
Ability to import software image from devices that are already deployed to Prime Infrastructure. The software image can then be distributed to other devices.
Not supported because the software image cannot be reassembled into a package.
Image import from file
Ability to import software image from known location on a file server to Prime Infrastructure. The software image can then be distributed to other devices.
Image import from URL
Ability to import software image from network accessible locations (URI/URL) to Prime Infrastructure. The software image can then be distributed to other devices.
Image import from Cisco.com
Ability to import software image from a trusted Cisco website to Prime Infrastructure. The software image can then be distributed to other devices.
Ability to upgrade software image on the managed devices from Prime Infrastructure. This allows you to update software image for multiple devices based on demand or at a later point in time as scheduled. The feedback and status are displayed during the upgrade and devices can be restarted, if required. In large deployments, you can stagger reboots so that the service at a site is not completely down during the upgrade window.
Ability to recommend a compatible image for the devices that are managed from Prime Infrastructure.
Not supported because the flash requirement is not available.
Image upgrade analysis
Ability to analyze the software images to determine the hardware upgrades required before you can perform the software upgrade.
Not supported because there is no minimum requirement for RAM or ROM. The newly upgraded image replaces the existing image after an upgrade.
SWIM and Configuration Archives support for Devices during Prime Infrastructure releases—Table 4 outlines the devices that the software image management and configuration archives support during the various Prime Infrastructure releases.
