System Software Release 2.5.0 Installation Scenarios

There are several different installation and upgrade scenarios for system software release 2.5.0. Before installing system software release 2.5.0, determine which scenario applies to your situation, and follow the instructions below to determine on which SPE310 to run the setup program, and which software installation option to choose.


Note There must be one SPE310 running ICS System Manager in the chassis. All other SPE310s in the chassis must run Core Software.


Upgrading the entire chassis from system software release 2.1.0 or later to system software release 2.5.0—In this scenario, you must run the setup program on the SPE310 running ICS System Manager and, when prompted by the setup program, select the SPEs which you want to upgrade to release 2.5.0.

Upgrading an SPE310 running Core Software to ICS Core Software release 2.5.0—In this scenario, you must run the setup program on the SPE310 running Core Software that you want to upgrade and, when prompted by the setup program, select the option to upgrade ICS Core software.

New installation of ICS System Manager release 2.5.0 on a new or reimaged SPE310—In this scenario, you must run the setup program on the SPE310 on which you want to run ICS System Manager and, when prompted by the setup program, select the option to install ICS System Manager software. This option is not available if you are accessing the SPE310 through Terminal Services Client or if you downloaded the upgrade-only package from CCO.

New installation of ICS Core Software release 2.5.0 on a new or re imaged SPE310—In this scenario you must run the setup program on the SPE310 on which you want to install Core Software and, when prompted by the setup program, select the option to install Core Software.

Conversion of ICS Core Software to ICS System Manager—The system software release 2.5.0 setup program can convert an SPE310 that is running Core Software to an SPE310 running ICS System Manager. In this scenario, you must run the setup program on the SPE310 running Core Software that you want to convert and, when prompted by the setup program, select the option convert ICS Core Software to ICS System Manager. This option is not available if you are accessing the SPE310 through Terminal Services Client or if you downloaded the upgrade-only package from CCO.

System Software Release 2.5.0 Media Options

System software release 2.5.0 can be installed from the following sources, with the following options:

CD-ROM—The system software release 2.5.0 CD-ROM contains a complete set of the system software, including Microsoft SQL server software and Microsoft hotfixes. This package can be used to install release 2.5.0 on an SPE310 that does not currently have system software installed, or to upgrade an SPE310.

Download from CCO—There are two sets of system software release 2.5.0 available from CCO:

S77a-2.5.0.exe—This package contains the complete set of system software version 2.5.0, including Microsoft SQL server software. This package can be used for new installations or for upgrades of existing system software.

S77a-Upgrade-2.5.0.exe—This package contains only the software components that have changed since system software release 2.1.0 and that are necessary to upgrade to release 2.5.0. This package does not contain Microsoft SQL server software. This package is smaller, resulting in a much shorter download time, but this package cannot be used for new installations of ICS system software.

Accessing the SPE310 Windows Interface

Before you begin installing the release 2.5.0 system software, ensure that you can access the SPE310 Windows interface in either of the following ways:

Accessing the SPE310 Windows Interface Through Directly Connected Peripherals

Accessing the SPE310 Windows Interface Through Terminal Services Client

Accessing the SPE310 Windows Interface Through Directly Connected Peripherals

You can connect a monitor, keyboard, and mouse directly to the SPE310 to access the Windows user interface, as follows:


Step 1 Connect the monitor cable to the video port on the SPE310, and power on the monitor.

Step 2 Continue as follows, based on the type of peripherals that you are using:

USB—Connect a USB hub to one SPE310 USB port and then connect a USB keyboard and a USB mouse to the USB hub. The USB hub must be used because the CD-ROM drive requires one of the two available USB ports on the SPE310.

PS/2—Connect the "Y" splitter cable for your keyboard and mouse to the keyboard/mouse port on the target SPE310, and then connect your keyboard and mouse to the available ends of the "Y" splitter cable.


Note If you are using the "Y" splitter cable to connect a PS/2 mouse and a keyboard to the SPE310, the keyboard and mouse must be connected at or before the time of SPE310 rebooting in order for them to be recognized by the operating system. This is not the case with a USB keyboard and mouse, which are usually recognized without rebooting the operating system.



Note For a summary of the issues related to the connection of peripherals to SPE310s, for best practices in using peripherals with SPE310s, and a list of USB peripherals that have been tested on the Cisco ICS 7750, see the "Using Peripherals with SPE310s" section in the "Operating the Cisco ICS 7750" chapter of the Cisco ICS 7750 Installation and Configuration Guide.


Step 3 Use the keyboard, mouse, and monitor to access standard Windows utilities on the SPE310, such as Windows Explorer and the Control Panel.


Accessing the SPE310 Windows Interface Through Terminal Services Client


Note Not all of the installation and upgrade scenarios are available through Terminal Services Client. For more information, see the "System Software Release 2.5.0 Installation Scenarios" section.


To access the SPE310 Windows interface through Terminal Services Client, complete the following steps:


Step 1 On the PC that you use to administer the Cisco ICS 7750, choose Start > Programs > Terminal Services Client > Client Connection Manager.

Step 2 Use the Client Connection Manager to open a Terminal Services connection with the target SPE:

If you already have a Terminal Services Client connection defined for the target SPE, choose it. Then choose File > Connect.

Upgrading Cisco IOS Software Images

The system switch processor (SSP), multiservice route processors (MRPs), and analog station interfaces (ASIs) in your Cisco ICS 7750 run Cisco IOS software. There are two different procedures for upgrading Cisco IOS images on system cards:

Upgrading IOS Software Images Through System Manager—Use this procedure for SSP, MRP200, ASI81, and ASI160 system cards.

Upgrading IOS Software Images Through the IOS Command-Line Interface—Use this procedure for MRP300, MRP3-8FXS, and MRP3-16FXS system cards.

Current Cisco IOS images are available on CCO.


Note When upgrading to system software release 2.5.0, you must upgrade the Cisco IOS images on all MRP200s, ASI81s, ASI160s, and the SSP.


Upgrading IOS Software Images Through System Manager

To upgrade an IOS software image on a non-Flash-based system card, use the Software Upgrade tab in System Manager to first upload the new software image to the System Manager software library, and then to deliver the new image to the system card.


Note Although the System Manager software library will display the IOS image running on Flash-based system cards (the MRP300, MRP3-8FXS, and MRP3-16FXS), you cannot use System Manager to upgrade the IOS image on these cards. You must upgrade those cards through the IOS CLI.



Note Before you can upgrade an IOS software image on a non-Flash-based card (MRP200, ASI81, and ASI160), you must have installed ICS System Manager and completed the initial configuration of the Cisco ICS 7750 using ICSConfig. For more information about initial configuration using ICSConfig, refer to the "Completing the Cisco ICS 7750 Installation" chapter in the Cisco ICS 7750 Installation and Configuration Guide.


Uploading a Software Image into the Software Library

Follow these steps to upload an image to the Software Library:


Step 1 On a PC, open Netscape Communicator or Microsoft Internet Explorer.

Step 2 In the Location or Address field, enter the following URL, replacing IP address with the IP address of the system processing engine (SPE) running System Manager:

http://IP address/ics

Step 3 Log in as the super administrator (user ID is admin), and enter your password (the default is admin).

Step 4 Click Login.

Step 5 From the System Manager home page, click the Software Upgrade tab.

Step 6 Click Add Image.

Step 7 In the Specify Image File Name field, enter the image file name. You can also click Browse to open the browser Choose File dialog box, and locate the image file by browsing your PC file system.

Step 8 Click Upload to ICS 7750. The image will be uploaded to the software library. This takes about 30 seconds for a 4-MB file. Once the upload is complete, the Software Upgrade main page appears with an entry for the uploaded image in the Software Library.


Delivering an IOS Image to a System Card

Follow these steps to deliver an IOS software image from the software library to a non-Flash-based system card:


Step 1 From the System Manager home page, click the Software Upgrade tab.

Step 2 In the Software Library table, find the IOS image that you want to deliver.

Step 3 In the same row as the image that you want to deliver, click deliver to a system card.

Step 4 Select the system card from the Select a Target System Card pull-down field.

Step 5 Click Deliver.


Upgrading IOS Software Images Through the IOS Command-Line Interface

Delivery of an IOS image to the MRP300, MRP3-8FXS, and MRP3-16FXS system cards is not supported via the Upgrade tab in the current version of System Manager. These cards contain Flash memory and require the use of the Cisco IOS command-line interface (CLI) to copy an IOS image from a Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) server to the Flash memory in order to deliver a new IOS image to them. Follow these steps to upgrade an image on one of these cards:


Step 1 From the Windows 2000 Start menu, choose Start > Run.

Step 2 Enter the following command to open a Telnet session, where IP address is the IP address of the Flash-based system card on which you want to upgrade the IOS image.

telnet IP address

Step 3 Enter your login password.

Step 4 Enter the enable command and your IOS enable password to enter privileged EXEC command mode:

> enable
Password: password
# 

Step 5 Enter the following command:

# copy tftp: flash:

Step 6 Respond to the prompts to supply the location and name of the IOS image file.


Note For more information about the copy tftp: flash: IOS command, see the "Loading and Maintaining System Images" section of the Cisco IOS Configuration Fundamentals Configuration Guide, Release 12.2.
