This is a patch release for Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.1. This release delivers a number of bug fixes. There are no new features added in this release. However, this release provides a few important enhancements to the existing features. For details, see the “New Features and Enhancements” section.
This patch release must be installed on top of your existing Prime Infrastructure 2.1 installation.
For more information on server and web client requirements, see the System Requirements section of the Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.1 Quick Start Guide .
The following sections explain how to install the patch.
Before You Begin Installing the Patch
CautionOnce you install this patch, you cannot un-install or remove it.
Because the patch is not removable, it is important to have a way to revert your system to the original version in case hardware or software problems cause the patch installation to fail.
To ensure you can do this, take a backup of your system before downloading and installing this UBF patch.
To revert to the original Prime Infrastructure 2.1 installation, follow these steps:
1. Reinstall Prime Infrastructure 2.1 from an OVA or ISO distribution.
2. Restore the data from the backup that you made before applying the patch.
Similarly, if you are running Prime Infrastructure 2.1 in a Virtual Machine (VM) and your organization permits taking VM snapshots, use the VMware client to take a VM snapshot before applying this patch. Store the snapshot in an external storage repository, and restore from the snapshot if the patch is unsuccessful.
If you are installing the patch as part of a High Availability (HA) implementation, you will want to ensure that the network links between the two servers provide maximum bandwidth and low latency throughout the patch install. For more information, see Troubleshooting Patch Installs in HA Implementations.
Step 2 Click the Download button for the Release 2.1.1 patch file (pi211_20140630_01.ubf), and save the file locally.

Step 6 Restart the server by first executing the ncs stop command and then the ncs start command, as explained in Running Commands.
Step 7 Verify that the patch is installed by logging into the server and choosing Administration > Software Update . You should see a listing for the patch in the “Updates” table, with a “Yes” opposite the patch under the “Installed” column, and a “No” under the “Pending Restart” column.
If you are not using the Prime Infrastructure High Availability (HA) feature, follow the steps in Installing the Patch instead of the steps below
If your current Prime Infrastructure implementation has High Availability enabled, follow the steps below to install the patch. You must start the patch install with the primary server in “Primary Active” state and the secondary server in “Secondary Syncing” state.
b. Click the Download button for the Release 2.1.1 patch file (pi211_20140630_01.ubf), and save the file locally.
Step 3 Install the patch on the secondary server:
a. Access the secondary server’s HMweb page by pointing your browser to the following URL:
https:// ServerIP :8082
where ServerIP is the IP address or host name of the secondary server.
b. You will be prompted for the authentication key entered when HA was enabled. Enter it and click Login .
c. Choose the HM web page’s Software Update link. You will be prompted for the authentication key a second time. Enter it and click Login again.
d. Click Upload Update File and browse to the location where you saved the patch file.

h. After the installation is complete on the secondary server, verify that the Software Updates page shows:
– In the “Installed” column: A “Yes” opposite the listing for this patch.
– In the “Pending Restart” column: A “Yes” for the secondary server. Do not restart the secondary server at this point.
Step 4 Install the patch on the primary server:
a. Log in to the primary server using an ID with administrator privileges and choose Administration > Software Update .
b. Click Upload Update File and browse to the location where you saved the patch file.
c. Click OK to upload the patch file.
d. When the upload is complete: On the Software Upload page, verify that the Name, Published Date and Description of the patch file are correct.
e. Select the patch file and click Install . When the installation is complete, you will see a popup message confirming this.
f. After the installation is complete on the primary server, verify that the Software Update page shows:
– In the “Installed” column: A “Yes” opposite the listing for this patch.
– In the “Pending Restart” column: A “Yes” for the primary server. Do not restart the primary server at this point.
Step 5 Stop the servers in the following sequence, using the commands explained in Running Commands:
a. On the secondary server, run the ncs stop command.
b. On the primary server, run the ncs stop command.
Step 6 Re-start and monitor the servers in the following sequence, using the commands explained in Running Commands
a. On the secondary server, run:
– The ncs start command to restart the secondary server. Wait for the processes on the secondary to restart.
– The ncs status command to verify that the secondary’s processes have re-started.
– The ncs ha status command to verify that the secondary state is “Secondary Lost Primary”.
b. Once the secondary server is in “Secondary Lost Primary” state: On the primary server, run:
– The ncs start command to restart the primary server. Wait for the processes on the primary to restart.
– The ncs status command to verify that the primary’s Health Monitor and other processes have re-started.
Once all the processes on the primary are up and running, automatic HA registration will be triggered. This normally completes after a few minutes.
Step 7 Once registration completes, verify the patch installation as follows:
a. Run the ncs ha status command on both the primary and secondary servers. You should see the primary server state change from “HA Initializing” to “Primary Active”. You should see the secondary server state change from “Secondary Lost Primary” to “Secondary Syncing”.
b. Log in to the primary server and access its Software Update page as you did earlier. The “Installed” column should show “Yes” and the “Pending Restart” column should show “No” for the installed patch.
c. Access the secondary server’s Health Monitor page as you did earlier. The “Installed” column should show “Yes” and the “Pending Restart” column should show “No” for the installed patch.
You will need to connect to Prime Infrastructure server via the command line interface (CLI) to run commands that:
Stop the server
Start the server
Display the list of running server processes
Display the status of High Availability features on the server
Before you begin, make sure you know the:
IP address or host name of the Prime Infrastructure server or appliance on which you will run the commands.
User ID and password of an administrative user with CLI access to that server or appliance. Unless specifically barred from doing so, all administrative users have CLI access.
Step 1 Start up your SSH client, start an SSH session via your local machine’s command line, or connect to the dedicated console on the Prime Infrastructure physical or virtual appliance.
Step 2 Log in as appropriate:
a. If you are connecting via a GUI client: Enter the ID of an active Prime Infrastructure administrator ID with CLI access. and the IP address or host name of the Prime Infrastructure server or appliance. Then initiate the connection.
b. If you are using a command-line client or session: Log in with a command like the following:
[localhost]# ssh -I admin IPHost
– admin is an active Prime Infrastructure administrator ID with CLI access.
– IPHost is the IP address or host name of the Prime Infrastructure server or appliance.
c. If you are connecting via the physical or virtual appliance console, a prompt is shown for the administrator user name. Enter the user name.
Prime Infrastructure will prompt you for the password for the administrator ID you entered.
Step 3 Enter the administrative ID password.
Prime Infrastructure will present a command prompt like the following: PIServer/admin#.
Step 4 Run the appropriate commands as needed, using the examples below:
Stop the server: PIServer/admin# ncs stop
Start the server: PIServer/admin# ncs stop
Check on the server status: PIServer/admin# ncs status
Check on High Availability status: PIServer/admin# ncs ha status
Troubleshooting Patch Installs in HA Implementations
Users who apply this patch in a High Availability (HA) implementation may experience difficulties if the network links between the two servers offer low bandwidth and high latency. In particular, this kind of low throughput can cause the post-patch restart and re-registration to take far longer than normal. In most cases, simply waiting longer will fix the problem with no intervention. In a few cases, continued or intermittent throughput problems can cause a complete failure. If you believe this has occurred, contact Cisco TAC.
If you are unable to verify that the patch has been applied to a server, or one or both of the servers fails to re-start properly after the patch, you may need to re-image the server as explained in Before You Begin Installing the Patch before continuing.
In all cases, you can use the backup logs command on one or both servers to get information on the source of the failure.
Upgrading Prime Infrastructure
If you are currently using Prime Infrastructure 2.1, you can apply the Prime Infrastructure 2.1.1 UBF patch.
If you are currently using Prime Infrastructure 2.0 you must first upgrade to Prime Infrastructure 2.1 before applying the Prime Infrastructure 2.1.1 UBF patch.
If you are running releases of Prime Infrastructure earlier than 2.0, first upgrade to Prime Infrastructure 2.1 and then apply this patch.
