Overview

Cisco Unified Wireless Network Field Upgrade Software (FUS), Release 1.8.0.0, is a special AES package that performs various system-related component upgrades for Cisco Wireless LAN 2500 Series Controllers.

If you are using a Cisco 2500 Series Controller and you upgrade to the 7.4.100.0 controller software release and intend to use the Application Visibility and Control (AVC) and NetFlow protocol features, you must install Cisco Unified Wireless Network Field Upgrade Software, Release 1.8.0.0. This release is not required if you are using other controller hardware models.

Table 1 lists the components that are upgraded after you install FUS.

Table 1 Components Upgraded 

Controller Hardware Model
Components Upgraded

Cisco 2500 Series Wireless Controllers

Field Recovery Image is upgraded to runtime image version

Bootloader is upgraded to 1.0.18

Offline Field Diagnostics is upgraded to 0.9.28


Guidelines and Limitations


Caution Ensure that there are no power outages during the upgrade. Power outages during the upgrade might lead to the controller not being usable.

This release of FUS is applicable only to Cisco Wireless LAN 2500 Series Controllers.

You must install FUS only once.

Although console access to the controller during the upgrade process is not required, we recommend that you have the console access so that you can monitor the progress of the process.

The FUS upgrade process reboots the controller several times and reboots the default runtime image. The whole process takes approximately 30 minutes.

Downloading Cisco Unified Wireless Network Field Upgrade Software


Step 1 Go to the Cisco Software Center at this URL: http://www.cisco.com/cisco/software/navigator.html

Step 2 Choose Products > Wireless > Wireless LAN Controller.

Step 3 Choose either of the following depending on the controller platform that you use:

Integrated Controllers and Controller Modules

Standalone Controllers

Step 4 Choose the controller model number or name. The Download Software page is displayed.

Step 5 Choose Wireless LAN Controller Software.

Step 6 Click a controller software release. The software releases are labeled as follows to help you determine which release to download:

Early Deployment (ED)—These software releases provide new features and new hardware platform support as well as bug fixes.

Maintenance Deployment (MD)—These software releases provide bug fixes and ongoing software maintenance.

Deferred (DF)—These software releases have been deferred. We recommend that you migrate to an upgraded release.

Step 7 Click a software release number. Click the filename (filename.aes). The following AES file is available:

Caveats

The following sections lists Open Caveats and Resolved Caveats for Cisco controllers and lightweight access points for version 1.8.0.0. For your convenience in locating caveats in Cisco's Bug Toolkit, the caveat titles listed in this section are drawn directly from the Bug Toolkit database. These caveat titles are not intended to be read as complete sentences because the title field length is limited. In the caveat titles, some truncation of wording or punctuation might be necessary to provide the most complete and concise description. The only modifications made to these titles are as follows:

Commands are in boldface type.

Product names and acronyms might be standardized.

Spelling errors and typos might be corrected.
