Note If you are using Internet Explorer 8 to access the CDSM GUI, for the online help to display correctly, you need to turn on Compatibility View. To turn on Compatibility View in Internet Explorer 8, choose Tools > Compatibility View.


Limitations and Restrictions

This release contains the following limitations and restrictions:

RTSP Redirect Server Limitations—The TV CDS Redirect Server provides a central entry-point for stream requests, which are then redirected based on internal load balancing policies to other Setup servers in the CDS deployment for session processing. The load balancing policies require that the CDS server running the Redirect Server have access to the database of each potential Setup server. The policies use key pieces of information from the database, such as the RTSP server status, the server load, and the Setup IP address to management IP address mappings. If the Redirect Server does not have access to this data, it cannot properly redirect the setup request to the "best" Setup server.

In the case of multiple Stream Groups, with the Redirect Server configured to run on Streamers within one of the Stream Groups, it is required that the database replication partners for the Streamers contain all of the Streamers from all Stream Groups, which basically constitutes a full-mesh database replication approach among all of the Streamers

If a full-mesh database replication for the Streamers is not desired, the Redirect Server can operate on the Vaults, which already have the necessary database replication partners defined to support required data.

Upgrading to Release 3.2.2

The supported upgrade paths are the following:

Release 2.5.2 to Release 3.2.1

Release 2.5.3 to Release 3.2.1

Release 2.5.5 to Release 3.2.1

Release 3.0.1 to Release 3.2.1

Release 3.0.2 to Release 3.2.1

Release 3.2.1 to Release 3.2.2

If the CDS is running an earlier software release, you must first upgrade to one of the supported releases before upgrading to Release 3.2.2.

For software upgrade procedures, see the Cisco TV CDS 3.2 Installation, Upgrade, and Maintenance Guide.

Upgrading to Cisco TV CDS Release 3.2.2

For the upgrade sequence of the CDS devices in your system (CDSM/VVIM and CDS servers [Vault, Streamer, Caching Node, ISV]), see the "Overview" chapter in the Cisco TV CDS 3.2 Installation, Upgrade, and Maintenance Guide.

To upgrade a CDS device, do the following:


Step 1 Download the ISO image file (CDS-TV-3.2.2-.iso) and the cdsinstall-3.2.2 script from the Cisco Software Download website. For more information on downloading the software files, see the "Overview" chapter in the Cisco TV CDS 3.2 Installation, Upgrade, and Maintenance Guide.

Step 2 For the CDS servers, offload the device before upgrading the software.

a. From the CDSM GUI, choose Maintain > Servers > Server Offload. The Server Offload page is displayed.

b. From the Server IP drop-down list, select the IP address or nickname of the sever and click Display.

c. From the New Server Status drop-down list, select Offline for a Streamer or Caching Node, select Offline (No Ingest & Fill) for a Vault.

d. Click Submit.

e. Ensure the CDS server has been offloaded by checking the protocol timing log.

Step 3 Log in to the CDS server as user root.

Step 4 For CDS servers, before installing the image file, stop the database with the following command:

# db_shutdown
 
   

Wait until the following command returns no output:

# netstat -an | grep 9999 and #pgrep avsdb
 
   

Step 5 Copy the ISO image file and the cdsinstall-3.2.2 script to the CDS server.

# scp -p <user>@<remote_ip_address>:CDS-TV-3.2.2.iso /
# scp -p <user>@<remote_ip_address>:cdsinstall-3.2.2 /
 
   

Step 6 Run the cdsinstall script to upgrade the ISO image to Release 3.2.2.

# cd /root
# ./cdsinstall-3.2.2 /CDS-TV-3.2.2.iso
 
   

Step 7 For the CDSM or VVIM, when the script has completed, reboot the server.

Step 8 For the CDSM or VVIM, log in to the GUI as a user with Engineering access level and configure the settings on the CDSM Setup page.

Step 9 For CDS servers, make sure that the database is not running and reboot the server.

# pgrep avsdb
# mv /etc/rc.d/rc.local /etc/rc.d/rc.local.bak
# reboot
 
   

Step 10 For CDS servers, after the CDS server has been came up from reboot, start DB, statsd, submit the interface setup page and start cserver

# su - isa -c "arroyo start avsdb" >& /dev/null
 
   
# /home/stats/statsd.bin -i <Server IP> -s <subnet mask> -d eth0
 
   

Wait till statsd connects to avsdb and both are operational

Submit Server Interface Setup page for this CDS server from GUI

Configure -> Server Level -> Interface Setup
 
   

Start avslauncher to start setup and control ip ( incase if the CDS server is streamer)

 
   
# /usr/bin/avslauncher >& /arroyo/log/avslauncher.out&
 
   

Start cserver

# /arroyo/test/run
 
   

Start FSI application (incase if the CDS server is vault)

# su - isa -c "arroyo start fsi ns nfs aim" >& /dev/null
 
   

Move the rc.local file to the original location

# mv /etc/rc.d/rc.local.bak /etc/rc.d/rc.local
 
   

Step 11 For CDS servers, after the CDS server has been verified as reachable, return the server to online.

a. Choose Maintain > Servers > Server Offload. The Server Offload page is displayed.

b. From the Server IP dropdown list, select the IP address or nickname of the server and click Display.

c. Choose Online and click Submit.

d. Verify the CDS server is online by viewing the status on the Monitor > System Level > System Health page.


Downgrading from Release 3.2.2

For the downgrade sequence of the CDS devices in your system (CDSM/VVIM and CDS servers [Vault, Streamer, Caching Node, ISV]), see the "Overview" chapter in the Cisco TV CDS 3.2 Installation, Upgrade, and Maintenance Guide.

To downgrade a CDS device, do the following:


Step 1 Download the ISO image file (for example, CDS-TV-2.5.6.iso) and the cdsinstall script (for example, cdsinstall-2.5.6) for Release 2.5.2, 2.5.3, 2.5.5, or 2.5.6 from the Cisco software download website. For more information on downloading the software files, see the "Overview" chapter in the Cisco TV CDS 3.2 Installation, Upgrade, and Maintenance Guide.

Step 2 For CDS servers, offload the server (see Step 2 in "Upgrading to Cisco TV CDS Release 3.2.2").

Step 3 Log in to the CDS device as user root.

Step 4 For CDS servers, before installing the image file, stop the database with the following command:

# db_shutdown
 
   

Wait until the following command returns no output:

# netstat -an | grep 9999 and #pgrep avsdb
 
   

Step 5 Copy the ISO image file and the cdsinstall script to the /root directory and run the cdsinstall script to download the software. For example, the following commands are for downgrading to Release 2.5.6:

# scp -p <user>@<remote_ip_address>:CDS-TV-2.5.6.iso /
# scp -p <user>@<remote_ip_address>:cdsinstall-2.5.6 /
# cd /root
# ./cdsinstall-2.5.6 /CDS-TV-2.5.6.iso
 
   

Step 6 For the CDSM or VVIM, when the script has completed, reboot the server.

Step 7 For CDS servers, make sure that the database is not running and reboot the server.

# pgrep avsdb
# mv /etc/rc.d/rc.local /etc/rc.d/rc.local.bak
# reboot
 
   

Step 8 For CDS servers, after the CDS server has been came up from reboot, start DB, statsd, submit the interface setup page and start cserver

# su - isa -c "arroyo start avsdb" >& /dev/null
 
   
# /home/stats/statsd.bin -i <Server IP> -s <subnet mask> -d eth0
 
   

Wait till statsd connects to avsdb and both are operational

Submit Server Interface Setup page for this CDS server from GUI

 
   
Configure -> Server Level -> Interface Setup
 
   

Start avslauncher to start setup and control ip ( incase if the CDS server is streamer)

 
   
# /usr/bin/avslauncher >& /arroyo/log/avslauncher.out&
 
   

Start cserver

# /arroyo/test/run
 
   

Start FSI application (incase if the CDS server is vault)

# su - isa -c "arroyo start fsi ns nfs aim" >& /dev/null
 
   

Move the rc.local to the original location

# mv /etc/rc.d/rc.local.bak /etc/rc.d/rc.local
 
   

Step 9 For CDS servers, after the CDS server has been verified as reachable, return the server to online.

a. Choose Maintain > Servers > Server Offload. The Server Offload page is displayed.

b. From the Server IP dropdown list, select the IP address or nickname of the server and click Display.

c. From the New Server Status drop-down list, select Online and click Submit.

d. Verify the CDS server is online by viewing the status on the Monitor > System Level > System Health page. (see Step 7 in "Upgrading to Cisco TV CDS Release 3.2.2" procedure).
