About Software Images

Each switch is shipped with a Cisco MDS NX-OS or SAN-OS operating system for Cisco MDS 9000 Family switches. The Cisco MDS NX-OS and SAN-OS software consists of two images: the kickstart image and the system image.

To select the kickstart image, use the KICKSTART variable.

To select the system image, use the SYSTEM variable.

The images and variables are important factors in any install procedure. You must specify the variable and the respective image to upgrade or downgrade your switch. Both images are not always required for each install.


Note To download new Cisco MDS 9000 Family software including NX-OS and Fabric Manager management software, refer to the Storage Networking Software download site at:
http://www.cisco.com/cisco/software/navigator.html


For Storage Services Interface image compatibility information, refer to the Cisco MDS NX-OS Release Compatibility Matrix for Storage Service Interface Images, document and the Cisco MDS 9000 Family Release Notes for NX-OS Release 4.1(x).

For information on Fabric Manager upgrade and downgrade paths, and software images that are supported on your Cisco switches, refer to the Cisco MDS 9000 NX-OS and SAN-OS Release Notes.

Dependent Factors for Software Installation

The software image install procedure is dependent on the following factors:

Software images—The kickstart and system image files reside in directories or folders that can be accessed from the Cisco MDS 9000 Family switch prompt.

Image version—Each image file has a version.

Flash disks on the switch—The bootflash: resides on the supervisor module and the CompactFlash disk is inserted into the slot0: device.

Supervisor modules—There are single or dual supervisor modules.


Note On switches with dual supervisor modules, both supervisor modules must have Ethernet connections on the management interfaces (mgmt 0) to maintain connectivity when switchovers occur during upgrades and downgrades. Refer to the Cisco MDS 9500 Series Hardware Installation Guide.

Installing NX-OS Release 4.1(x) Software on a New Cisco MDS Switch

To install the latest NX-OS 4.1(x) software images a new Cisco MDS 9000 Family switch, follow these steps:


Step 1 Log in to Cisco.com to access the links provided in this document. To log in to Cisco.com, go to the URL http://www.cisco.com/ and click Log In at the top of the page. Enter your Cisco Systems user name and password.


Note Unregistered Cisco.com users cannot access the links provided in this document.


Step 2 Verify the following physical connections for the new Cisco MDS 9000 Family switch:

The console port is physically connected to a computer terminal (or terminal server).

The management 10/100 Ethernet port (mgmt0) is connected to an external hub, switch, or router.

Information on physical connections can be found in the Cisco Hardware Installation Guides.


Note On switches with dual Supervisor modules, both Supervisor modules must have Ethernet connections on the management interfaces (mgmt 0) to maintain connectivity when switchovers occur during upgrades and downgrades. Refer to the Cisco MDS 9500 Series Hardware Installation Guide.



Tip Save the host ID information for future use (for example, to enable licensed features). The host ID information is provided in the Proof of Purchase document that accompanies the switch.


Step 3 Verify that the default console port parameters are identical to the parameters of the computer terminal (or terminal server) attached to the switch console port:

9600 baud

8 data bits

1 stop bit

No parity

Refer to the "Configuring Console Settings" section in the "Initial Configuration" chapter in the Cisco MDS 9000 Family CLI Configuration Guide.

Step 4 Power up the Cisco MDS 9000 Family switch. The switch boots automatically and the switch prompt appears in your terminal window.

Step 5 Obtain the IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway information that is required for the Cisco MDS 9000 Family switch to communicate over the supervisor module Ethernet interface. This information is required to configure and manage the switch.

Refer to the "Switch Setup Information" section in the "Initial Configuration" chapter in the Cisco MDS 9000  Family CLI Configuration Guide.


Tip You have the option to change the default password during the initial setup process. All Cisco MDS 9000 Family switches have the network administrator as a default user (admin) and a default password (admin). You cannot change the default user at any time.


Step 6 Complete the System Admin Account Setup.


Tip If you create a short, easy-to-decipher password, your password is rejected. Be sure to configure a strong password as shown in the sample configuration. Passwords are case sensitive. You must explicitly create a password that meets the requirements listed in the "Characteristics of Strong Passwords" section in the "Configuring Users and Common Roles" chapter in the Cisco MDS 9000 Family CLI Configuration Guide.


---- System Admin Account Setup ----

Do you want to enforce secure password standard (yes/no) [y]: y

Enter the password for "admin":
Confirm the password for "admin":

Step 7 Enter yes to enter the setup mode and assign the information obtained in Step 5.

Refer to the "Assigning Setup Information" section in the "Initial Configuration" chapter in the Cisco MDS 9000 Family CLI Configuration Guide.


Note Press Ctrl-C at any prompt to skip the remaining configuration options and proceed with what is configured until that point.



Tip If you do not want to answer a previously configured question, or if you want to skip answers to any questions, press Enter. If a default answer is not available (for example, a switch name), the switch uses the previously configured settings and skips to the next question.


The CLI configuration steps (using factory defaults) are as follows:

---- Basic System Configuration Dialog ----

This setup utility will guide you through the basic configuration of
the system. Setup configures only enough connectivity for management
of the system.

Press Enter incase you want to skip any dialog. Use ctrl-c at anytime
to skip remaining dialogs.

Would you like to enter the basic configuration dialog (yes/no): yes

By default, two roles exist in all switches:

Network operator (network-operator)—Has permission to view the configuration only. The operator cannot make any configuration changes.

Network administrator (network-admin)—Has permission to execute all commands and make configuration changes. The administrator can also create and customize up to 64 additional roles. One (of these 64 additional roles) can be configured during the initial setup process.


Create another login account (yes/no) [n]: yes

Note While configuring your initial setup, you can create an additional user account (in the network-admin role) besides the administrator's account. The user name must contain non-numeric characters. Refer to the "Configuring User Accounts" section in the "Configuring Users and Common Roles" chapter in the Cisco MDS 9000 Family CLI Configuration Guide.


Enter the user login ID: test

Enter the password for "test":
Confirm the password for "test":
Enter the user role [network-operator]:


Tip If you use SNMPv3, then do not configure the SNMPv2 community string. Refer to the "SNMP Version 1 and Version 2c" section in the "Configuring SMNP" chapter in the Cisco MDS 9000 Family CLI Configuration Guide.

Upgrading to NX-OS Release 4.1(x) on an Existing Cisco MDS Switch

This section provides information on upgrading your SAN-OS software to NX-OS Release 4.1(x). It includes the following sections:

Upgrading Guidelines for the MDS 9513 Director Switch

Upgrading Guidelines for the MDS 9506 and MDS 9509 Director Switches

Upgrading to NX-OS Release 4.1(x) on an MDS 9500 Series Switch

Upgrading to NX-OS Release 4.1(x) on the MDS 9222i Switch

To upgrade to NX-OS Release 4.1(x) from SAN-OS Release 3.2(3a) or earlier, first upgrade to SAN-OS Release 3.3(x) and then upgrade to NX-OS Release 4.1.


Note For a nondisruptive upgrade, the switch must be running SAN-OS Release 3.3(x) or later. A disruptive upgrade requires a switch reload.


Upgrading Guidelines for the MDS 9513 Director Switch

On the MDS 9513 switch, the high-level process to upgrade to NX-OS Release 4.1(x) is as follows:


Step 1 Upgrade to MDS NX-OS Release 4.1(x) as described in Upgrading to NX-OS Release 4.1(x) on an MDS 9500 Series Switch.


Note If you are installing 8-Gbps Fibre Channel modules, refer to the fabric module installation information in the Cisco MDS 9500 Series Switch Hardware Installation Guide, otherwise, follow Step 1.


Step 2 (Optional) Install the MDS 9000 4/44-port 8-Gbps Fibre Channel module.

Step 3 (Optional) Upgrade the MDS 9513 Fabric 1 modules to MDS 9513 Fabric 2 modules.

Step 4 (Optional) Install the MDS 9000 48-port 8-Gbps Fibre Channel module or MDS 9000 24-port 8-Gbps Fibre Channel module.

Step 5 If you installed an MDS 9000 48-port 8-Gbps Fibre Channel module or MDS 9000 24-port 8-Gbps Fibre Channel module, then reload the switch. If you did not install an 8-Gbps module in Step 5, then issue the install all command.

Cisco MDS NX-OS 4.1(x) supports the following Generation 3 8-Gbps modules:

MDS 9000 4/44-port 8-Gbps Host-Optimized Fibre Channel module (DS-X9248-48K9)

MDS 9000 24-port 8-Gbps Fibre Channel module (DS-X9224-96K9)

MDS 9000 48-port 8-Gbps Fibre Channel module (DS-X9248-96K9)

In addition, Cisco MDS NX-OS 4.1(1b) supports two fabric modules, which are also known as crossbar modules, for the MDS 9513 Director:

MDS 9513 Fabric 2 module, DS-13SLT-FAB2

MDS 9513 Fabric 1 module, DS-13SLT-FAB1


Note The MDS 9513 Director supports the 8-Gbps Fibre Channel module after the switch upgrade.


If you have a Storage Services Module or other modules, refer to the Cisco MDS 9000 Family Storage Services Interface Image Installation and Upgrade Guide for the list of supported and unsupported modules.


Upgrading Guidelines for the MDS 9506 and MDS 9509 Director Switches

On the MDS 9506 and 9509 Director switches, the high-level process to upgrade to NX-OS Release 4.1(x) is as follows:


Step 1 Upgrade all Supervisor-1 modules to Supervisor-2 modules.

For detailed steps, see the "Migrating From Supervisor-1 Modules to Supervisor-2 Modules" section.

Step 2 Upgrade to MDS NX-OS Release 4.1(x) as described in Upgrading to NX-OS Release 4.1(x) on an MDS 9500 Series Switch.

Step 3 Install the 8-Gbps Fibre Channel modules.


Upgrading to NX-OS Release 4.1(x) on an MDS 9500 Series Switch

To upgrade your switch to use the latest Cisco MDS NX-OS software on your Cisco MDS 9500 Series switch, follow these steps:


Step 1 Log in to Cisco.com to access the links provided in this document. To log in to Cisco.com, go to the URL http://www.cisco.com/ and click Log In at the top of the page. Enter your Cisco Systems user name and password.


Note Unregistered Cisco.com users cannot access the links provided in this document.


Step 2 Verify the following physical connections for the new Cisco MDS 9500 Family switch:

The console port is physically connected to a computer terminal (or terminal server).

The management 10/100 Ethernet port (mgmt0) is connected to an external hub, switch, or router.

These procedures are specified in the hardware installation guide for the required product. Refer to the Cisco Hardware Installation Guides to obtain more information:

Step 3 Log in to the switch.

Step 4 Issue the copy running-config startup-config command to store your current running configuration. You can also create a backup of your existing configuration to a file by issuing the copy running-config bootflash:backup_config.txt command. Refer to the "Saving Your Configuration" section in the "Initial Configuration" chapter in the Cisco MDS 9000 Family CLI Configuration Guide.

Step 5 Verify that the requested license files installed in the switch are displayed in response to the show license usage command.


Note The switch is initially shipped with the required licenses installed in the system; however, the initial license file will not cover unlicensed features that may be used during the grace period. Refer to the "Obtain a Factory-Installed License" section in the "Obtaining and Installing Licenses" chapter in the Cisco MDS 9000 Family CLI Configuration Guide. If no license is displayed at this point, perform Step 6 and Step 7 to install the required licenses. If the required licenses are displayed at this point, skip Step 6 and Step 7 and move to Step 8.


The example CLI output for a valid license follows:

switch# show license usage
Feature               Insta License Status Expiry Date Comments
                      lled  Count
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
FM_SERVER_PKG          Yes      -   Unused never       -
MAINFRAME_PKG          Yes      -   Unused never       -
ENTERPRISE_PKG         Yes      -   In use never       -
SAN_EXTN_OVER_IP       Yes      1   Unused never       -
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The example CLI output for licenses with expiring grace periods follows:

switch# show license usage
Feature               Insta License Status Expiry Date Comments
                      lled  Count
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
FM_SERVER_PKG          No       -   In use             Grace Period 78days 5hrs
MAINFRAME_PKG          No       -   Unused             -
ENTERPRISE_PKG         No       -   In use             Grace Period 88days 5hrs
SAN_EXTN_OVER_IP       No       0   Unused             -
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Step 6 Install licenses (if necessary) to ensure that the required features are available on the switch. Perform the following steps:

a. Use the show license host-id command to obtain the serial number for your switch. The host ID is also referred to as the switch serial number.

switch# show license host-id
License hostid: VDH=FOX064317SQ


Tip Use the entire ID that appears after the colon (:) sign. In this example, the host ID is VDH=FOX064317SQ


b. Obtain your Claim Certificate or the Proof of Purchase document. This document accompanies every Cisco MDS switch.

c. Locate the Product Authorization Key (PAK) from the Claim Certificate or Proof of Purchase document.

d. Locate the website URL from the Claim Certificate or Proof of Purchase document.

e. Access the specified URL that applies to your switch and enter the switch serial number and the PAK. The license key file is sent to you by e-mail. The license key file is digitally signed to only authorize use on the switch for which it was requested. The requested features are also enabled once the NX-OS software on the specified switch accesses the license key file.


Caution Install the license file in the specified Cisco MDS 9000 Family switch without making any modifications.

Refer to the "Performing a Manual Installation" section in the "Obtaining and Installing Licenses" chapter in the Cisco MDS 9000 Family CLI Configuration Guide.

Step 7 Install the license key file when you receive it by e-mail. Perform the following steps:

a. Copy the license file to bootflash using tftp or scp.

b. Perform the installation by issuing the install license command on the active supervisor module from the switch console.

switch# install license bootflash:license_file.lic 
Installing license ..done 

Note If you provide a target name for the license key file, the file is installed with the specified name. Otherwise, the file name specified in the license key file is used to install the license.


c. Exit the switch console.

Refer to the "Installing a License Key File" section in the "Obtaining and Installing Licenses" chapter in the Cisco MDS 9000 Family CLI Configuration Guide.

Step 8 Ensure that the required space is available in the bootflash: directory for the image file(s) to be copied using the dir bootflash: command. Use the delete bootflash:filename command to remove unnecessary files.


Note Before downloading and installing Cisco NX-OS software, verify that the release is supported by your Cisco System MDS reseller. If you purchased support through a Cisco Systems reseller, contact them directly for more information. Otherwise, contact Cisco Technical support at this URL: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/support/tsd_cisco_worldwide_contacts.html.

You have now upgraded the Cisco MDS NX-OS software in your existing switch.


Upgrading to NX-OS Release 4.1(x) on the MDS 9222i Switch

On the MDS 9222i switch, the high-level process to upgrade to NX-OS Release 4.1(x) is as follows:

Upgrade to MDS NX-OS Release 4.1(x) as described in this section and then if you want to install the 4/44-port 8-Gbps Fibre Channel module, perform the installation after the upgrade.

To upgrade from SAN-OS, you must first upgrade to SAN-OS Release 3.3(x) and then upgrade to NX-OS Release 4.1(x). To upgrade to NX-OS Release 4.1(x) on an MDS 9222i switch, do the following:


Step 1 Verify that the system image files for the upgrade are present on the active supervisor module bootflash:.

switch# dir bootflash:
      12288     Aug 26 19:06:14 2008  lost+found/
   18939904     Jul 01 10:54:49 2008  m9200-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.4.1.x.bin

  101756072     Jul 01 10:33:52 2008  m9200-sf2ek9-mz.4.1.x.bin
   95771404     Jul 01 10:18:09 2008  m9200-sf2ek9-mz.3.3.1c.bin

Usage for bootflash://sup-local
  236338292 bytes used
  142984076 bytes free
  379322368 bytes total

Step 2 If the software image file is not present, download it from an FTP or TFTP server to the active supervisor module bootflash:. You can obtain the software image file from the Cisco.com software download center at the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/cisco/software/navigator.html


Note If you need more space on the active supervisor module bootflash:, use the delete command to remove unnecessary files and follow Step 3 and Step 4.


switch# copy tftp://tftpserver.cisco.com/MDS/m9200-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.4.1.x.bin 
bootflash:m9200-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.4.1.x.bin
switch# copy tftp://tftpserver.cisco.com/MDS/m9200-sf2ek9-mz.4.1.x.bin 
bootflash:m9200-sf2ek9-mz.4.1.x.bin


Step 3 Ensure that the required space is available on the active supervisor.

switch# dir bootflash:
      12288     Aug 26 19:06:14 2008  lost+found/
   18939904     Jul 01 10:54:49 2008  m9200-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.3.3.1c.bin
  101756072     Jul 01 10:33:52 2008  m9200-sf2ek9-mz.3.3.1c.bin

Usage for bootflash://sup-local
  120695976 bytes used
   63863640 bytes free
  184559616 bytes total

Step 4 If you need more space on the active supervisor module bootflash, delete unnecessary files to make space available.

switch# del bootflash:m9200-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.3.3.1c.bin
switch# del bootflash:m9200-sf2ek9-mz.3.3.1c.bin

Step 5 Save the configuration using the copy running-config startup-config command.

switch# copy running-config startup-config

You can also create a backup of your existing configuration to a file by issuing the copy running-config bootflash:backup_config.txt command. You might want to add a date reference to the .txt file name to identify the file at a later date.

Step 6 Perform the upgrade by issuing the install all command.

switch# install all kickstart bootflash:m9200-s2ek9-kickstart-mz.4.1.x.bin sys 
bootflash:m9200-s2ek9-mz.4.1.x.bin

Downgrading from NX-OS Release 4.1

To downgrade from NX-OS Release 4.1, you must first downgrade to SAN-OS Release 3.3(x) and then downgrade to an earlier release.

The following sections describe how to perform downgrades on an MDS 9513 switch:

Downgrading from NX-OS Release 4.1(x) to SAN-OS Release 3.3(x) on an MDS 9513 Multilayer Director with Higher Bandwidth Capability

Downgrading from NX-OS Release 4.1(x) to SAN-OS Release 3.3(x) on an MDS 9513 Multilayer Director Without Higher Bandwidth Capability

To determine whether high bandwidth capability is enabled, issue the show hardware fabric-mode command. The following example shows that the higher bandwidth capability has not been activated:

switch# show hardware fabric-mode
Fabric mode supports only one configuration of 8G FC modules - 4/44 Host-Optimized 8G FC 
module.
switch#

The following example shows that the higher bandwidth capability has been activated:

switch# show hardware fabric-mode
Fabric mode supports 8G FC and above modules.
switch#

The following sections describe how to perform downgrades on an MDS 9509 and MDS 9506 switch:

Downgrading from NX-OS Release 4.1(x) to SAN-OS 3.3(x) on an MDS 9509 or MDS 9506 Switch with an Installed Generation 3 8-Gbps Fibre Channel Switching Module

Downgrading from NX-OS Release 4.1(x) to SAN-OS Release 3.3(x) on an MDS 9509 or MDS 9506 Switch Without an Installed Generation 3 8-Gbps Fibre Channel Switching Module

The following section describes how to perform a downgrade on an MDS 9222i switch:

Downgrading from NX-OS Release 4.1(x) to SAN-OS Release 3.3(x) on an MDS 9222i Switch

For information on supported chassis and modules, refer to "NX-OS Release 4.1(x) Supported Hardware" section. For information on the procedures for installing and upgrading software for Intelligent Storage Services on the Cisco MDS 9000 Family Storage Services Module (SSM), refer to the Cisco MDS 9000 Family Storage Services Module Software Installation and Upgrade Guide.


Note If you are running NX-OS Release 4.1(x) in combination with the SSI Release 4.1(x) image and you wish to downgrade to SAN-OS Release 3.3(2) with the SSI Release 3.2(3s) image, you must delete all SANTap configurations prior to the downgrade. Downgrading without completely deleting the SANTap configurations is not supported.


Downgrading from NX-OS Release 4.1(x) to SAN-OS Release 3.3(x) on an MDS 9513 Multilayer Director with Higher Bandwidth Capability

This procedure describes how to downgrade from NX-OS Release 4.1(x). on an MDS 9513 Multilayer Director with higher bandwidth capability. To downgrade on an MDS 9513 Multilayer Director that does not have higher bandwidth capability, see "Downgrading from NX-OS Release 4.1(x) to SAN-OS Release 3.3(x) on an MDS 9513 Multilayer Director Without Higher Bandwidth Capability" section.

To verify that higher bandwidth capabilities are activated, issue the show hardware fabric-mode command. The following example shows that the higher bandwidth capability has been activated:

switch# show hardware fabric-mode
Fabric mode supports 8G FC and above modules.
switch#

The following example shows that the higher bandwidth capability has not been activated:

switch# show hardware fabric-mode
Fabric mode supports only one configuration of 8G FC modules - 4/44 Host-Optimized 8G FC 
module.
switch#

Use the install all command to downgrade the switch and handle configuration conversions. When downgrading any switch in the Cisco MDS 9000 Family, avoid using the reload command.


Note When downgrading to a release earlier than NX-OS Release 4.1(x) and if you have a Generation 3 `8-Gbps Fibre Channel Switching Modules and the Fabric 2 module (DS-13SLT-FAB2) installed, the installation will fail. It is recommended that you power down these modules and then downgrade again.



Note A downgrade from NX-OS Release 4.1(x) to SAN-OS Release 3.3(x) with higher bandwidth capability enabled is disruptive.


To downgrade to Cisco MDS SAN-OS Release 3.3(x) from NX-OS Release 4.1, follow these steps:


Step 1 Verify that the system image files for the downgrade are present on the active supervisor module bootflash:.

Step 2 If the software image file is not present, download it from an FTP or TFTP server to the active supervisor module bootflash:. You can obtain the software image file from the Cisco.com software download center at the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/cisco/software/navigator.html


Note If you need more space on the active supervisor module bootflash:, use the delete command to remove unnecessary files and follow Step 3 through Step 6.


switch# copy tftp://tftpserver.cisco.com/MDS/m9500-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.3.3.1c.bin 
bootflash:m9500-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.3.3.1c.bin
switch# copy tftp://tftpserver.cisco.com/MDS/m9500-sf2ek9-mz.3.3.1c.bin 
bootflash:m9500-sf2ek9-mz.3.3.1c.bin

Step 3 Ensure that the required space is available on the active supervisor.

switch# dir bootflash:
      12288     Aug 26 19:06:14 2008  lost+found/
   22001152     Jul 01 10:54:49 2008  m9500-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.4.1.x.bin

Usage for bootflash://sup-local
  116188794 bytes used
   68370822 bytes free
  184559616 bytes total

Step 4 If you need more space on the active supervisor module bootflash, delete unnecessary files to make space available.

switch# del bootflash:m9500-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.4.1.x.bin
switch# del bootflash:m9500-sf2ek9-mz.4.1.x.bin

Step 5 Verify that there is enough space available for the standby supervisor.

switch(standby)# dir bootflash:
      12288     Aug 26 19:06:14 2008  lost+found/
   22001152     Jul 01 10:54:49 2008  m9500-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.4.1.x.bin
   94175354     Jul 01 10:33:52 2008  m9500-sf2ek9-mz.4.1.x.bin

Usage for bootflash://sup-local
  116188794 bytes used
   68370822 bytes free
  184559616 bytes total

Step 6 If you need more space on the standby supervisor module bootflash, delete unnecessary files to make space available.

switch(standby)# del bootflash:m9500-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.4.1.x.bin
switch(standby)# del bootflash:m9500-sf2ek9-mz.4.1.x.bin

Step 7 Issue the show incompatibility system image-filename command to determine if you need to disable any features not supported in the earlier release.

switch# show incompatibility system bootflash:m9500-sf2ek9-mz.3.3.1c.bin
The following configurations on active are incompatible with the system image
1) Service : port-channel , Capability : CAP_FEATURE_AUTO_CREATED_41_PORT_CHANNEL
Description : auto create enabled ports or auto created port-channels are present
Capability requirement : STRICT 
Disable command : 
1.Disable autocreate on interfaces (no channel-group auto).
2.Convert autocreated port channels to be persistent (port-channel 1 persistent)
... 

Step 8 Disable any features that are incompatible with the downgrade system image.

switch# configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
switch(config)# interface fcip 31
switch(config-if)# no channel-group auto
switch(config-if)# end
switch# port-channel 127 persistent
switch# 

Step 9 Save the configuration using the copy running-config startup-config command.

switch# copy running-config startup-config

Step 10 Verify if a Generation 3 8-Gbps module is installed on the switch using the show module command.

switch# show module

12   48     1/2/4/8 Gbps 48-Port FC Module   DS-X9248-96        ok
13   48     1/2/4/8 Gbps 4/44-Port FC Module DS-X9248-48K9      ok
...

Step 11 If there is a Generation 3 8-Gbps module installed, then do Steps a through c. Otherwise, go to Step 12.

a. Power off the Generation 3 8-Gbps module.

switch# configure terminal
switch(config)# poweroff module 12
switch(config)# 2009 Jan 7 18:40:05 switch %PLATFORM-2-PFM_MODULE_POWER_OFF: Manual

...

c. Remove the Generation 3 8-Gbps modules.

Step 12 Issue the install all command to downgrade the software.


Note When downgrading on an MDS 9513 Director, (running in high bandwidth mode with 8-Gbps Fibre Channel modules) consider the following:

Downgrading to MDS SAN-OS Release 3.x is disruptive.

Downgrading to MDS SAN-OS Release 3.x requires a switch reload.

The Fabric 2 module features are not available after a downgrade to SAN-OS Release 3.x or earlier.

    Service:

Downgrading from NX-OS Release 4.1(x) to SAN-OS Release 3.3(x) on an MDS 9513 Multilayer Director Without Higher Bandwidth Capability

To verify that higher bandwidth capabilities are not activated, issue the show hardware fabric-mode command. The following example shows that the higher bandwidth capability has not been activated:

switch# show hardware fabric-mode
Fabric mode supports only one configuration of 8G FC modules - 4/44 Host-Optimized 8G FC 
module.
switch#

The following example shows that the higher bandwidth capability has been activated:

switch# show hardware fabric-mode
Fabric mode supports 8G FC and above modules.
switch#

Use the install all command to downgrade the switch and handle configuration conversions. When downgrading any switch in the Cisco MDS 9000 Family, avoid using the reload command.

To downgrade to Cisco MDS SAN-OS Release 3.3(x) from NX-OS Release 4.1, follow these steps:


Step 1 Verify that the system image files for the downgrade are present on the active supervisor module bootflash:.

switch# dir bootflash:
      12288     Aug 26 19:06:14 2008  lost+found/
   22001152     Jul 01 10:54:49 2008  m9500-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.4.1.x.bin
   16604160     Jul 01 10:20:07 2008  m9500-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.3.3.1c.bin
   94175354     Jul 01 10:33:52 2008  m9500-sf2ek9-mz.4.1.x.bin
   78718938     Jul 01 10:18:09 2008  m9500-sf2ek9-mz.3.3.1c.bin

Usage for bootflash://sup-local
  211411892 bytes used
  167810476 bytes free
  379322368 bytes total

Step 2 If the software image file is not present, download it from an FTP or TFTP server to the active supervisor module bootflash:. You can obtain the software image file from the Cisco.com software download center at the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/cisco/software/navigator.html


Note If you need more space on the active supervisor module bootflash:, use the delete command to remove unnecessary files and follow Step 3 through Step 6.


switch# copy tftp://tftpserver.cisco.com/MDS/m9500-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.3.3.1c.bin 
bootflash:m9500-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.3.3.1c.bin
switch# copy tftp://tftpserver.cisco.com/MDS/m9500-sf2ek9-mz.3.3.1c.bin 
bootflash:m9500-sf2ek9-mz.3.3.1c.bin

Step 3 Ensure that the required space is available on the active supervisor.

switch# dir bootflash:
      12288     Aug 26 19:06:14 2008  lost+found/
   22001152     Jul 01 10:54:49 2008  m9500-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.4.1.x.bin
   94175354     Jul 01 10:33:52 2008  m9500-sf2ek9-mz.4.1.x.bin

Usage for bootflash://sup-local
  116188794 bytes used
   68370822 bytes free
  184559616 bytes total

Step 4 If you need more space on the active supervisor module bootflash, delete unnecessary files to make space available.

switch# del bootflash:m9500-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.4.1.x.bin
switch# del bootflash:m9500-sf2ek9-mz.4.1.x.bin

Step 5 Verify that there is enough space available for the standby supervisor.

switch(standby)# dir bootflash:
      12288     Aug 26 19:06:14 2008  lost+found/
   22001152     Jul 01 10:54:49 2008  m9500-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.4.1.x.bin
   94175354     Jul 01 10:33:52 2008  m9500-sf2ek9-mz.4.1.x.bin

Usage for bootflash://sup-local
  116188794 bytes used
   68370822 bytes free
  184559616 bytes total

Step 6 If you need more space on the standby supervisor module bootflash, delete unnecessary files to make space available.

switch(standby)# del bootflash:m9500-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.4.1.x.bin
switch(standby)# del bootflash:m9500-sf2ek9-mz.4.1.x.bin

Step 7 Issue the show incompatibility system image-filename command to determine if you need to disable any features not supported by the earlier release.

switch# show incompatibility system bootflash:m9500-sf2ek9-mz.3.3.1c.bin
The following configurations on active are incompatible with the system image
1) Service : port-channel , Capability : CAP_FEATURE_AUTO_CREATED_41_PORT_CHANNEL
Description : auto create enabled ports or auto created port-channels are present
Capability requirement : STRICT 
Disable command : 
1.Disable autocreate on interfaces (no channel-group auto).
2.Convert autocreated port channels to be persistent (port-channel 1 persistent)
...

Step 8 Disable any features that are incompatible with the downgrade system image.

switch# configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
switch(config)# interface fcip 31
switch(config-if)# no channel-group auto
switch(config-if)# end
switch# port-channel 127 persistent
switch# 

Step 9 Save the configuration using the copy running-config startup-config command.

switch# copy running-config startup-config

Step 10 Issue the install all command to downgrade the software.

switch# install all kickstart bootflash:m9500-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.3.3.1c.bin system 
bootflash:m9500-sf2ek9-mz.3.3.1c.bin

Downgrading from NX-OS Release 4.1(x) to SAN-OS 3.3(x) on an MDS 9509 or MDS 9506 Switch with an Installed Generation 3 8-Gbps Fibre Channel Switching Module

If you have a Generation 3 8-Gbps Fibre Channel Switching module installed, then do the following:


Step 1 Verify that the system image files for the downgrade are present on the active supervisor module bootflash:.

switch# dir bootflash:
      12288     Aug 26 19:06:14 2008  lost+found/
   22001152     Jul 01 10:54:49 2008  m9500-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.4.1.x.bin
   16604160     Jul 01 10:20:07 2008  m9500-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.3.3.1c.bin
   94175354     Jul 01 10:33:52 2008  m9500-sf2ek9-mz.4.1.x.bin
   78718938     Jul 01 10:18:09 2008  m9500-sf2ek9-mz.3.3.1c.bin

Usage for bootflash://sup-local
  211411892 bytes used
  167810476 bytes free
  379322368 bytes total

Step 2 If the software image file is not present, download it from an FTP or TFTP server to the active supervisor module bootflash:. You can obtain the software image file from the Cisco.com software download center at the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/cisco/software/navigator.html


Note If you need more space on the active supervisor module bootflash:, use the delete command to remove unnecessary files and follow Step 3 through Step 6.


switch# copy tftp://tftpserver.cisco.com/MDS/m9500-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.3.3.1c.bin 
bootflash:m9500-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.3.3.1c.bin
switch# copy tftp://tftpserver.cisco.com/MDS/m9500-sf2ek9-mz.3.3.1c.bin 
bootflash:m9500-sf2ek9-mz.3.3.1c.bin

Step 3 Ensure that the required space is available on the active supervisor.

switch# dir bootflash:
      12288     Aug 26 19:06:14 2008  lost+found/
   22001152     Jul 01 10:54:49 2008  m9500-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.4.1.x.bin
   94175354     Jul 01 10:33:52 2008  m9500-sf2ek9-mz.4.1.x.bin

Usage for bootflash://sup-local
  116188794 bytes used
   68370822 bytes free
  184559616 bytes total

Step 4 If you need more space on the active supervisor module bootflash, delete unnecessary files to make space available.

switch# del bootflash:m9500-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.4.1.x.bin
switch# del bootflash:m9500-sf2ek9-mz.4.1.x.bin

Step 5 Verify that there is enough space available for the standby supervisor.

switch(standby)# dir bootflash:
      12288     Aug 26 19:06:14 2008  lost+found/
   22001152     Jul 01 10:54:49 2008  m9500-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.4.1.x.bin
   94175354     Jul 01 10:33:52 2008  m9500-sf2ek9-mz.4.1.x.bin

Usage for bootflash://sup-local
  116188794 bytes used
   68370822 bytes free
  184559616 bytes total

Step 6 If you need more space on the standby supervisor module bootflash, delete unnecessary files to make space available.

switch(standby)# del bootflash:m9500-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.4.1.x.bin
switch(standby)# del bootflash:m9500-sf2ek9-mz.4.1.x.bin

Step 7 Issue the show incompatibility system image-filename command to determine if you need to disable any features not supported by the earlier release.

switch# show incompatibility system bootflash:m9500-sf2ek9-mz.3.3.1c.bin
The following configurations on active are incompatible with the system image
1) Service : port-channel , Capability : CAP_FEATURE_AUTO_CREATED_41_PORT_CHANNEL
Description : auto create enabled ports or auto created port-channels are present
Capability requirement : STRICT 
Disable command : 
1.Disable autocreate on interfaces (no channel-group auto).
2.Convert autocreated port channels to be persistent (port-channel 1 persistent)
...

Step 8 Disable any features that are incompatible with the downgrade system image.

switch# configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
switch(config)# interface fcip 31
switch(config-if)# no channel-group auto
switch(config-if)# end
switch# port-channel 127 persistent
switch# 

Step 9 Save the configuration using the copy running-config startup-config command.

switch# copy running-config startup-config

Step 10 Verify the status of the modules on the switch using the show module command.

switch# show module
Mod  Ports  Module-Type                      Model              Status
---  -----  -------------------------------- ------------------ ------------
2    4      10 Gbps FC Module                DS-X9704           ok
3    48     1/2/4 Gbps FC Module             DS-X9148           ok
5    0      Supervisor/Fabric-2              DS-X9530-SF2-K9    active *
6    0      Supervisor/Fabric-2              DS-X9530-SF2-K9    ha-standby
8    48     1/2/4/8 Gbps 48-Port FC Module   DS-X9248-96        ok
...

Step 11 Verify that the switch is running the required software version by issuing the show version command.

Downgrading from NX-OS Release 4.1(x) to SAN-OS Release 3.3(x) on an MDS 9509 or MDS 9506 Switch Without an Installed Generation 3 8-Gbps Fibre Channel Switching Module

If you do not have a Generation 3 8-Gbps Fibre Channel Switching module installed, then follow these steps:


Step 1 Verify that the system image files for the downgrade are present on the active supervisor module bootflash:.

switch# dir bootflash:
      12288     Aug 26 19:06:14 2008  lost+found/
   22001152     Jul 01 10:54:49 2008  m9500-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.4.1.x.bin
   16604160     Jul 01 10:20:07 2008  m9500-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.3.3.1c.bin
   94175354     Jul 01 10:33:52 2008  m9500-sf2ek9-mz.4.1.x.bin
   78718938     Jul 01 10:18:09 2008  m9500-sf2ek9-mz.3.3.1c.bin

Usage for bootflash://sup-local
  211411892 bytes used
  167810476 bytes free
  379322368 bytes total

Step 2 If the software image file is not present, download it from an FTP or TFTP server to the active supervisor module bootflash:. You can obtain the software image file from the Cisco.com software download center at the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/cisco/software/navigator.html


Note If you need more space on the active supervisor module bootflash:, use the delete command to remove unnecessary files and follow Step 3 through Step 6.


switch# copy tftp://tftpserver.cisco.com/MDS/m9500-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.3.3.1c.bin 
bootflash:m9500-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.3.3.1c.bin
switch# copy tftp://tftpserver.cisco.com/MDS/m9500-sf2ek9-mz.3.3.1c.bin 
bootflash:m9500-sf2ek9-mz.3.3.1c.bin

Step 3 Ensure that the required space is available on the active supervisor.

switch# dir bootflash:
      12288     Aug 26 19:06:14 2008  lost+found/
   22001152     Jul 01 10:54:49 2008  m9500-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.4.1.x.bin
   94175354     Jul 01 10:33:52 2008  m9500-sf2ek9-mz.4.1.x.bin

Usage for bootflash://sup-local
  116188794 bytes used
   68370822 bytes free
  184559616 bytes total

Step 4 If you need more space on the active supervisor module bootflash, delete unnecessary files to make space available.

switch# del bootflash:m9500-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.4.1.x.bin
switch# del bootflash:m9500-sf2ek9-mz.4.1.x.bin

Step 5 Verify that there is enough space available for the standby supervisor.

switch(standby)# dir bootflash:
      12288     Aug 26 19:06:14 2008  lost+found/
   22001152     Jul 01 10:54:49 2008  m9500-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.4.1.x.bin
   94175354     Jul 01 10:33:52 2008  m9500-sf2ek9-mz.4.1.x.bin

Usage for bootflash://sup-local
  116188794 bytes used
   68370822 bytes free
  184559616 bytes total

Step 6 If you need more space on the standby supervisor module bootflash, delete unnecessary files to make space available.

switch(standby)# del bootflash:m9500-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.4.1.x.bin
switch(standby)# del bootflash:m9500-sf2ek9-mz.4.1.x.bin

Step 7 Issue the show incompatibility system image-filename command to determine if you need to disable any features not supported by the earlier release.

switch# show incompatibility system bootflash:m9500-sf2ek9-mz.3.3.1c.bin
The following configurations on active are incompatible with the system image
1) Service : port-channel , Capability : CAP_FEATURE_AUTO_CREATED_41_PORT_CHANNEL
Description : auto create enabled ports or auto created port-channels are present
Capability requirement : STRICT 
Disable command : 
1.Disable autocreate on interfaces (no channel-group auto).
2.Convert autocreated port channels to be persistent (port-channel 1 persistent)
...

Step 8 Disable any features that are incompatible with the downgrade system image.

switch# configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
switch(config)# interface fcip 31
switch(config-if)# no channel-group auto
switch(config-if)# end
switch# port-channel 127 persistent
switch# 

Step 9 Save the configuration using the copy running-config startup-config command.

switch# copy running-config startup-config

Step 10 Verify the status of the modules on the switch using the show module command.

switch# show module
Mod  Ports  Module-Type                      Model              Status
---  -----  -------------------------------- ------------------ ------------

3    48     1/2/4 Gbps FC Module             DS-X9148           ok
5    0      Supervisor/Fabric-2              DS-X9530-SF2-K9    active *
6    0      Supervisor/Fabric-2              DS-X9530-SF2-K9    ha-standby
...

Step 11 Verify that the switch is running the required software version by issuing the show version command.

Step 2 If the software image file is not present, download it from an FTP or TFTP server to the active supervisor module bootflash:. You can obtain the software image file from the Cisco.com software download center at the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/cisco/software/navigator.html


Note If you need more space on the active supervisor module bootflash:, use the delete command to remove unnecessary files and follow Step 3 and Step 4.


switch# copy tftp://tftpserver.cisco.com/MDS/m9200-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.3.3.1c.bin 
bootflash:m9200-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.3.3.1c.bin

Usage for bootflash://sup-local
  120695976 bytes used
   63863640 bytes free
  184559616 bytes total

Step 4 If you need more space on the active supervisor module bootflash, delete unnecessary files to make space available.

switch# del bootflash:m9200-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.4.1.x.bin
switch# del bootflash:m9200-sf2ek9-mz.4.1.x.bin

Step 5 Issue the show incompatibility system image-filename command to determine if you need to disable any features not supported by the earlier release.

switch# show incompatibility system bootflash:m9200-sf2ek9-mz.3.3.1c.bin
The following configurations on active are incompatible with the system image
1) Service : port-channel , Capability : CAP_FEATURE_AUTO_CREATED_41_PORT_CHANNEL
Description : auto create enabled ports or auto created port-channels are present
Capability requirement : STRICT 
Disable command : 
1.Disable autocreate on interfaces (no channel-group auto).
2.Convert autocreated port channels to be persistent (port-channel 1 persistent)
...

Step 6 Disable any features that are incompatible with the downgrade system image.

switch# configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
switch(config)# interface fcip 31
switch(config-if)# no channel-group auto
switch(config-if)# end
switch# port-channel 127 persistent

Migrating From Supervisor-1 Modules to Supervisor-2 Modules

As of Cisco MDS SAN-OS Release 3.0(1), the Cisco MDS 9509 and 9506 Directors support both Supervisor-1 and Supervisor-2 modules. For Cisco MDS 9513 Directors, both supervisor modules must be Supervisor-2 modules.

This section includes the following:

Migration Guidelines

Migrating From a Supervisor 1 Module to a Supervisor-2 Module on a Cisco MDS 9509 or MDS 9506 Director

Migration Guidelines

Before performing the migration procedure, consider the following guidelines:

Both Supervisor-1 and Supervisor-2 modules must be running the same SAN-OS release during migration.

Supervisor-1 and Supervisor-2 modules cannot be installed in the same switch, except during migration. Both the active and standby supervisor modules must be of the same type, either Supervisor-1 or Supervisor-2 modules.

If you intend to upgrade your SAN-OS software, you must perform the migration and then perform the upgrade.

To ensure high availability, you must connect the Ethernet port for both active and standby supervisors to the same network or virtual LAN. The active supervisor owns the IP address used by these Ethernet connections. On a switchover, the newly activated supervisor takes over this IP address.

Migrating from Supervisor-2 modules to Supervisor-1 modules is not supported.

The procedure described in this section ensures that your configuration is correctly synchronized after completing the migration.


Caution Migrating your supervisor modules is a disruptive operation. The disruption occurs at the time of the switchover. When the Supervisor-2 module is plugged into the chassis and it comes up as the standby, it is in a warm standby mode (only the ASCII configuration is synchronized; global synchronization is not performed). When the switchover is initiated from the active Supervisor-1 module, the Supervisor-2 module takes over as the active supervisor and applies the ASCII configuration on the switch. At this time, all modules in the chassis are powered down and brought back up as if a fresh boot occurred. The Supervisor-1 module gets powered down.

Migrating From a Supervisor 1 Module to a Supervisor-2 Module on a Cisco MDS 9509 or MDS 9506 Director

To migrate from a Supervisor-1 module to a Supervisor-2 module on a Cisco MDS 9509 or 9506 Director, follow these steps:


Step 1 Ensure that the configured domain ID is the same as the current domain ID for every VSAN on the switch by following these steps:

a. Issue a show vsan command to display all the VSANs on the switch.

switch# show vsan
vsan 1 information
name:VSAN0001  state:active
interoperability mode:default
loadbalancing:src-id/dst-id/oxid
operational state:down

vsan 2 information
name:VSAN0002  state:active
interoperability mode:default
loadbalancing:src-id/dst-id/oxid
operational state:down

vsan 10 information
name:VSAN0010  state:active
interoperability mode:default
loadbalancing:src-id/dst-id
operational state:down

vsan 4094:isolated_vsan

b. Display the current and configured domain IDs for a VSAN.

switch# show fcdomain vsan 1
The local switch is the Principal Switch.

Local switch run time information:
State: Stable
Local switch WWN:    20:01:00:05:30:00:35:df
Running fabric name: 20:01:00:05:30:00:35:df
Running priority: 128
Current domain ID: 0x6a(106)

Local switch configuration information:
State: Enabled
FCID persistence: Enabled
Auto-reconfiguration: Disabled
Contiguous-allocation: Disabled
Configured fabric name: 20:01:00:05:30:00:28:df
Configured priority: 128
Configured domain ID: 0x00(0) (preferred)

Principal switch run time information:
Running priority: 128

c. Change the configured domain ID if it differs from the current domain ID.

switch# config terminal
switch(config)# fcdomain domain 106 static vsan 1
switch(config)# exit
switch#

d. Repeat b. and c. for each VSAN on the switch.

Step 2 Save the configuration.

switch# copy running-config startup-config

Step 3 Verify that the switch is running Cisco SAN-OS Release 3.0(1) or later. You must upgrade the switch if necessary.

Step 4 Issue a show module command to determine which Supervisor-1 module is the standby.

switch# show module
Mod  Ports  Module-Type                      Model              Status
---  -----  -------------------------------- ------------------ ------------

2    32     Storage Services Module          DS-X9032-SSM       ok
3    8      IP Storage Services Module       DS-X9308-SMIP      ok
4    12     1/2/4 Gbps FC Module             DS-X9112           ok
5    0      Supervisor/Fabric-1              DS-X9530-SF1-K9    ha-standby
6    0      Supervisor/Fabric-1              DS-X9530-SF1-K9    active *
...

Step 5 To set the standby module to manual boot mode, use the system standby manual-boot command.

switch# system standby manual-boot

Step 6 Take the standby Supervisor-1 module out of service.

switch# out-of-service module 5

Step 7 Verify that the standby Supervisor-1 module is powered down.

switch# show module
Mod  Ports  Module-Type                      Model              Status
---  -----  -------------------------------- ------------------ ------------
1    16     1/2 Gbps FC Module               DS-X9016           ok
2    32     Storage Services Module          DS-X9032-SSM       ok
3    8      IP Storage Services Module       DS-X9308-SMIP      ok
4    12     1/2/4 Gbps FC Module             DS-X9112           ok
5    0      Supervisor/Fabric-1                                 powered-dn
6    0      Supervisor/Fabric-1              DS-X9530-SF1-K9    active *
...

Step 8 Remove the standby Supervisor-1 module from the chassis. Shut down the management interface on the active Supervisor-1 module. This ensures that the Supervisor-2 can copy the image from TFTP using the same IP address.

switch# config terminal
switch(config)# interface mgmt 0
switch(config-if)# shut
Shutting down this interface will drop all telnet sessions.
Do you wish to continue(y/n)? [n] y
switch(config-if)# end
switch#

Step 9 Install the Supervisor-2 module in the chassis.

Step 10 Establish a console session on the standby Supervisor-2 module console port. For information on establishing a console session, refer to the Cisco MDS hardware installation guide for your switch.

Step 11 If the loader> prompt appears on the standby Supervisor-2 module console session, perform the following steps. Otherwise press Ctrl-C to break the boot sequence.

a. Verify that the Cisco SAN-OS kickstart image is on the Supervisor-2 module bootflash.


Note In rare instances, if the Supervisor-2 module does not include a kickstart image, we recommend that you replace the module with a Supervisor-2 module that has a kickstart image.


loader> dir 
bootflash:

h. Verify that the Cisco SAN-OS system image version and the kickstart image version are the same on the standby Supervisor-2 module:

loader> dir

bootflash:

16384       lost+found/
14458880    m9500-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.3.0.1.bin
16177664    m9500-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.3.3.1c.bin
69924857    m9500-sf2ek9-mz.3.3.1c.bin
48522513    m9500-sf2ek9-mz.3.0.1.bin

i. Boot the standby Supervisor-2 module using the boot command.

loader> boot m9500-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.3.3.1c.bin m9500-sf2ek9-mz.3.3.1c.bin

Step 12 Verify that the standby Supervisor-2 module is in the warm standby state by using a show system redundancy status command on the active Supervisor-1 module session.

switch# show system redundancy status
Redundancy mode
---------------
administrative:   HA
   operational:   Warm

This supervisor (sup-2)
-----------------------
Redundancy state:   Active
Supervisor state:   Active
  Internal state:   Active with warm standby

Other supervisor (sup-1)
------------------------
Redundancy state:   Standby
Supervisor state:   Warm standby
  Internal state:   Warm standby


Note In the above switch output, (sup-1) refers to the Supervisor module in slot 5 and (sup-2) refers to the Supervisor module in slot 6. Depending on the slot number from which the original standby Supervisor-1 module was brought out-of-service and removed in Steps 6 and 8, (sup-1) or (sup-2) can be either the Supervisor-1 module or Supervisor-2 module, and vice versa.


Step 13 Enable the management interface.

switch# config terminal
switch(config)# interface mgmt 0
switch(config-if)# no shutdown
switch(config-if)# end
switch#

Step 14 Copy the running configuration to the startup configuration on the active Supervisor-1 module to ensure that any running configuration changes are saved to the startup configuration and that the ASCII configuration is synchronized and current on the warm standby Supervisor-2 module.

switch# copy running-config start-config

Step 15 If your switch has SSMs installed and intelligent services are configured, perform a. through c.. Otherwise, continue to Step 16.

a. Power down all SSMs on the switch.

switch# config terminal
switch(config)# poweroff module 2
switch(config)# exit
switch#


Caution Do not copy the running configuration to the startup configuration after powering down the SSMs. If you do, you will lose the configuration on the SSM interfaces.

b. Verify that the SSMs are powered down.

switch# show module
Mod  Ports  Module-Type                      Model              Status
---  -----  -------------------------------- ------------------ ------------
1    16     1/2 Gbps FC Module               DS-X9016           ok
2    32     Storage Services Module                             powered-dn
3    8      IP Storage Services Module       DS-X9308-SMIP      ok
4    12     1/2/4 Gbps FC Module             DS-X9112           ok
5    0      Supervisor/Fabric-2              DS-X9530-SF2-K9    powered-up
6    0      Supervisor/Fabric-1              DS-X9530-SF1-K9    active *
...

c. Copy the contents of the SSM NVRAM to the standby Supervisor-2 module.

switch# copy ssm-nvram standby-sup


Step 16 Initiate a switchover on the active Supervisor-1 module to power it down and cause the standby Supervisor-2 module to become the active supervisor module.

switch:system switchover
......
CFG-2-ACFG_CONFIGURATION_APPLY_ERROR>>Error encountered while Ascii configuration was 
being applied. Please use "show startup-config log" to view details


Note This message may be shown if a different version (other than that on the Supervisor-1 module) of kickstart and system images are used on the newly installed Supervisor-2 module.


Step 17 Verify that the Supervisor-1 module is powered down.

switch# show module
Mod  Ports  Module-Type                      Model              Status
---  -----  -------------------------------- ------------------ ------------
1    16     1/2 Gbps FC Module               DS-X9016           ok
2    32     Storage Services Module          DS-X9032-SSM       powered-dn
3    8      IP Storage Services Module       DS-X9308-SMIP      ok
4    12     1/2/4 Gbps FC Module             DS-X9112           ok
5    0      Supervisor/Fabric-2              DS-X9530-SF2-K9    active *
6    0      Supervisor/Fabric-1                                 powered-dn
...


Note When the switchover is initiated from the active Supervisor-1 module, the Supervisor-2 module takes over as the active supervisor and applies the ASCII configuration on the switch. At this time, all modules in the chassis are powered down and brought back up as if a fresh boot occurred. The Supervisor-1 module gets powered down.


Step 18 Remove the Supervisor-1 module from the chassis.

Step 19 Verify the current console speed of the active Supervisor-2 module by issuing the show line console command.

switch# show line console
line Console:
    Speed:        9600 baud
    Databits:     8 bits per byte
    Stopbits:     1 bit(s)
    Parity:       none
    Modem In: Disable
    Modem Init-String -
        default : ATE0Q1&D2&C1S0=1\015

Note Make sure that the computer terminal speed or the terminal server speed (that is connected to the newly installed Supervisor-2 module) is the same as the speed on the active Supervisor-2 module. To set up the computer terminal, refer to the "Connecting the Console Port" section in the Cisco MDS 9500 Series Hardware Installation Guide.


Step 20 Configure the boot for the Supervisor-2 module.

switch# config terminal
switch(config)# boot kickstart bootflash:m9500-sf2ek9-kickstart-mz.3.3.1c.bin
switch(config)# boot system bootflash:m9500-sf2ek9-mz.3.3.1c.bin
switch(config)# end
switch#

Step 21 To set the standby module to auto boot mode, use the system no standby manual-boot command.

switch#system no standby manual-boot

Step 22 Install the other Supervisor-2 module in the chassis.


Tip Because the standby autoboot may take up to 5 minutes to start, you may have to wait a few minutes for the standby supervisor module to boot up. To avoid waiting, you can issue the reload module 6 force-dnld command (if the second Supervisor-2 module is in slot 6). The second Supervisor-2 module reloads and boots up immediately without waiting a few minutes for the image synchronization and standby autoboot to take place.


Step 23 Verify that the standby Supervisor-2 module is powered up.

switch# show module
Mod  Ports  Module-Type                      Model              Status
---  -----  -------------------------------- ------------------ ------------
1    16     1/2 Gbps FC Module               DS-X9016           ok
2    32     Storage Services Module          DS-X9032-SSM       powered-dn
3    8      IP Storage Services Module       DS-X9308-SMIP      ok
4    12     1/2/4 Gbps FC Module             DS-X9112           ok
5    0      Supervisor/Fabric-2              DS-X9530-SF2-K9    active *
6    0      Supervisor/Fabric-2                                 powered-up
...

Step 24 Bring up the newly installed Supervisor-2 module using the reload module 6 force-dnld command.

switch# reload module 6 force-dnld

Step 25 Verify that the standby Supervisor-2 module is in the HA standby state.

switch# show system redundancy status
Redundancy mode
---------------
administrative:   HA
   operational:   HA

This supervisor (sup-1)
-----------------------
Redundancy state:   Active
Supervisor state:   Active
  Internal state:   Active with HA standby

Other supervisor (sup-2)
------------------------
Redundancy state:   Standby
Supervisor state:   HA standby
  Internal state:   HA standby

Step 26 If your switch has Storage Services Modules installed and intelligent services are configured, perform Step a and Step b. Otherwise, continue to Step 27.

a. Power up all SSMs on the switch.

switch# config terminal
switch(config)# no poweroff module 2
switch(config)# 

b. Verify that the SSMs have powered up.

switch# show module
Mod  Ports  Module-Type                      Model              Status
---  -----  -------------------------------- ------------------ ------------
1    16     1/2 Gbps FC Module               DS-X9016           ok
2    32     Storage Services Module          DS-X9032-SSM       ok
3    8      IP Storage Services Module       DS-X9308-SMIP      ok
4    12     1/2/4 Gbps FC Module             DS-X9112           ok
5    0      Supervisor/Fabric-2              DS-X9530-SF1-K9    active
6    0      Supervisor/Fabric-2              DS-X9530-SF1-K9    ha-standby *
...

Step 27 Save the configuration.

switch# copy running-config startup-config

Step 28 If the Cisco MDS SAN-OS system image on the supervisor modules is the desired release, enter the install all command.

switch# install all

If you want a different release of the Cisco SAN-OS system image running on the switch, refer to the appropriate sections of this guide.
