Introduction

The NCS is the next generation network management platform for managing both wired and wireless access networks. NCS delivers converged user, access, and identity management, with complete visibility into endpoint connectivity regardless of the device, network, or location. NCS speeds up the troubleshooting of network problems related to client devices, which is one of the most reported customer pain points. NCS also provides identity security policy monitoring through integration with Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) to deliver visibility into compliance based on real-time contextual information from the network, users, and devices across the entire wired and wireless access network.

NCS is a scalable platform that meets the needs of small, mid-sized, and large-scale wired and wireless LANs across local, remote, national, and international locations. NCS gives IT managers immediate access to the tools they need, when they need them, so that they can more efficiently implement and maintain secure wireless LANs, monitor wired and wireless LANs, and view users and endpoints across both networks all from a centralized location.

Operational costs are significantly reduced through the workflow-oriented, simplified, and intuitive user experience of the platform, as well as built-in tools that improve IT efficiency, lower IT training costs, and minimize IT staffing requirements, even as the network grows. Unlike overlay management tools, NCS incorporates the full breadth of management requirements from radio frequency, to controllers, switches, endpoints, and users on wired and wireless networks, and to mobility and identity services to deliver a scalable and unified platform.

Key benefits of NCS 1.1.0.58 include the following:

Ease of Use—Simple, intuitive user interface designed with focus on workflow management. It supports user-defined customization to display only the most relevant information.

Scalability—Manages complete lifecycle management of hundreds of Cisco wireless LAN controllers and 15,000 of Cisco Aironet lightweight access points from a centralized location. Additionally, NCS can also manage up to 5000 autonomous Cisco Aironet access points.


Note Each stack or chassis is counted as a single device.


Wired Management—Comprehensive monitoring and troubleshooting support for maximum of 5000 Cisco Catalyst switches, which allows visibility into critical performance metrics for interfaces, ports, endpoints, users, and basic switch inventory.

WLAN Lifecycle Management—Comprehensive wireless LAN lifecycle management includes a full range of planning, deployment, monitoring, troubleshooting, remediation, and optimization capabilities.

Planning and deployment—Built-in planning and design tools simplify defining access point placement and coverage. Information from third-party site survey tools can be easily imported and integrated into NCS to aid in WLAN design and deployment. A broad array of integrated controller, access point, and command-line interface (CLI) configuration templates deliver quick and cost-effective deployment.

Delivery Modes—Delivered as a physical or a virtual appliance allowing deployment scalability to help customers meet various deployment models.

In addition to these, NCS 1.1.0.58 supports non-English characters and provides greater stability.

NCS License Information

Finding the Software Release

NCS License Information

NCS is deployed through a physical or virtual appliance. Use the standard License Center Graphical User Interface to add new licenses, which are locked by the standard Cisco Unique Device Identifier (UDI). When NCS is deployed on a virtual appliance, the licensing is similar to a physical appliance, except instead of using a UDI, you use a Virtual Unique Device Identifier (VUDI). The NCS license is recognized by the SKU, which is usually attached to every purchase order to clearly identify which software or package is purchased by a customer.

For more detailed information on license types and obtaining licenses for NCS, see the "NCS and End User License" chapter of the Cisco Prime Network Control System Configuration Guide, Release 1.1.

For detailed information and license part numbers available for NCS, including licensing options for new installations as well as migration from an existing Cisco product like Cisco Wireless Control System, see the Cisco Network Control System Ordering Guidelines at the following URL:
http://www.cisco.com/web/ordering/root/index.html.

Finding the Software Release

If NCS is already installed and connected, verify the software release by choosing Help > About Cisco NCS. To find more information on the software release that NCS is running, see the Cisco Prime Network Control System Configuration Guide, Release 1.1.

Migrating WCS to NCS


Note You must upgrade your Cisco WCS deployment to Release 7.0.164.3 or 7.0.172.0 or 7.0.220.0 or 7.0.230.0 before you attempt to perform the migration process to NCS 1.1.0.58.


This section provides instructions for migrating the WCS on either a Windows or Linux server to NCS. The NCS release is a major release to provide for converged management of wired and wireless devices, and increased scalability. The NCS platform is based on Linux 64 bit OS, and the backend database is Oracle DBMS. The existing WCS platforms are either Windows or Linux 32 bit and the backend database is Solid DB.

This section contains the following topics:

Exporting WCS Data

Migrating WCS Data to NCS

Non-upgradable Data


Note For steps on migrating NCS in a high availability environment, see Chapter 4, "Performing Maintenance Operations" of the Cisco Prime Network Control System Configuration Guide, Release 1.1.


Exporting WCS Data


Note There is no GUI for exporting data from WCS 7.x. The export userdata CLI command is available in WCS Release 7.x and later, which creates the .zip file containing the individual data file. The CLI does not provide any option to customize what can be exported; all non-global user-defined items are exported.


To export WCS data, follow these steps:


Step 1 Stop the WCS server.

Step 2 Enter the export command through the script file and provide the path and export filename when prompted.

Step 3 For Linux, enter the export.sh all /data/wcs.zip command. For Windows, enter the export.bat all \data\wcs.zip command.


Migrating WCS Data to NCS

To migrate WCS data, follow these steps:


Step 1 Place the WCS export .zip file (for example, wcs.zip) in a repository or folder (for example, repositories).

Step 2 Log in as admin user and stop the NCS server by entering the ncs stop command.

Step 3 Configure the FTP repository on the NCS appliance by entering the repository command:

ncs-appliance/admin#configure 
ncs-appliance/admin(config)#repository ncs-ftp-repo 
ncs-appliance/admin(config-Repository)#url ftp://209.165.200.227// 
ncs-appliance/admin(config-Repository)#user ftp-user password plain ftp-user 
 
   

Note Make sure the archived file is available using the show repository repositoryname command.


Step 4 Enter the ncs migrate command to restore the WCS database:

ncs-appliance/admin# ncs migrate wcs-data wcs.zip repository ncs-ftp-repo
 
   

By default, no WCS events are migrated.

Step 5 Enter the ncs start command to start the NCS server after the upgrade is completed.

Step 6 Log in to the NCS user interface using the root login and the root password.


Non-upgradable Data

The following data are not upgradable from WCS to NCS:

Certain Reports (AP Image Predownload, AP Profile Status, AP Summary, Client Count, Client Summary, Client Traffic, PCI Report, PCI Compliance Detailed and Summary reports, Preferred Call Network Summary report, Rogue APs, Adhoc Rogues, New Adhoc Rogues, Security Summary, and Guest Session reports).

Dashboard customization

Client Station Statistics information is not populated with old WCS data in clients charts, client details page, dashboards, and reports.

Client historical session information does get upgraded.

All events from WCS Release 7.0 are completely dropped and are not migrated to NCS.

RADIUS/TACACS server IP and credentials are not migrated and need to be added again after the migration is complete. You need to copy the latest custom attributes from NCS and include them in AAA server for user authentication/authorization in TACACS+/RADIUS.


Note Make sure you enable the RADIUS/TACACS server as AAA mode in the Administration > AAA > AAA Mode Settings page, and click Save.


Only alarms with Root Virtual Domain are migrated from WCS Release 7.0 to NCS.


Note All WCS Release 7.0 alarms and event data are stored as CSV files along with other data in a .zip file during upgrade.


The root password is not migrated from the WCS releases to NCS Release 1.1.0.58. The user must change the root password during the installation of the application. Non root users and their credentials are migrated during migration.

Alarm categories and subcategories are not restored after migration to NCS Alarm Summary.

Upgrading NCS 1.0 to NCS 1.1.0.58

You can upgrade from NCS Releases 1.0.0.96, 1.0.1.4, 1.0.2.28, and 1.0.2.29 to NCS 1.1.0.58.


Caution Ensure that you perform a backup before attempting to upgrade.


Caution Remove high availability before performing the upgrade.


Note For the TACACS+/RADIUS user authentication, the custom attributes related to the new features are required to be added/appended to the existing set of attributes in AAA server to access certain pages/views. For example, Monitor Media Stream page, Virtual Domain List (to view the list of virtual domains from the Create Report page), and so on.



Note Shut down NCS before performing the upgrade. To stop NCS, enter the ncs stop command.


Use the following command to upgrade from NCS 1.0 to NCS 1.1.0.58:

# application upgrade NCS-upgrade-bundle-1.1.0.58.tar.gz wcs-ftp-repo
 
   

In the preceding command, NCS-upgrade-bundle-1.1.0.58.tar.gz is the upgrade bundle file, which is available for download.

The repository used in the example, wcs-ftp-repo, can be any valid repository.

Examples of repository configurations follow.

FTP Repository:

# configure
(config)# repository wcs-ftp-repo
(config-Repository)# url ftp://ip-address
(config-Repository)# user ftp-user password plain ftp-user
(config-Repository)# exit

NCS Features

This release includes the following new features and enhancements, which may be configured and managed through NCS:


Note For more details on the new features, see the Cisco Prime Network Control System Configuration Guide, Release 1.1.


IPv6

The following new features have been introduced as part of the IPv6 feature enhancements:

IPv6 Dual-Stack Client Support

Intelligent IPv6 packet processing to enable seamless Layer 3 roaming for IPv6 and dual-stack client support. This feature enables reliable connectivity while roaming.

IPv6 Security

First hop security features including RA Guard which automatically blocks rogue router announcements from the access point, source guard, and DHCP guard. This feature enables increased network availability and lower operational cost by proactive blocking of known threats.

IPv6 Client Management

Enables administrators for IPv6 address planning, client traceability, and so on. The IPv6 (wired and wireless client) addresses visibility on a per client basis; system-wide IP version distribution, and trending from NCS.

IPv6 Packet Optimization

Intelligent packet processing through NDP proxy and rate limiting of chatty IPv6 packets. This feature enables increased radio efficiency and reduced CPU utilization in the router.

FlexConnect

This section describes the FlexConnect enhancements that have been introduced.

FlexConnect Rebranding

Beginning with this release, the Hybrid REAP (Hybrid Remote Edge Access Points) feature is referred to as FlexConnect.

Improved FlexConnect Upgrade Process

This feature enables administrators to more effectively perform AP upgrades. This enhancement enables one FlexConnect AP per branch to act as the master AP and download the image from the controller and then APs of the same model in the same branch can then predownload the image from the master AP.

This feature enables local distribution of software images from master to other APs in a branch, speeding up the upgrade, therefore minimizing traffic over the WAN and providing increased reliability.

FlexConnect ACLs

Allows filtering of client traffic that is locally switched on the FlexConnect AP. This feature enables protection and integrity of locally switched data traffic at the FlexConnect AP.

FlexConnect AAA Override

Allows dynamic VLAN assignment of AAA for locally switched clients on a FlexConnect access point. This feature enables deployment flexibility for VLAN assignments for locally switched clients.

FlexConnect-Fast Roaming for Voice Clients in a FlexConnect Group

This feature removes WAN link dependency by handling mobility events at the FlexConnect access points. This feature enables reduced roaming delay for fast roaming clients.

FlexConnect - L2 Security for Centrally Switched Users on Cisco Flex 7500 Controller

Provides full range of authentication mechanisms with 802.1x for centrally switched users. This feature enables a Flex 7500 controller to support 802.1x authentication for centrally switched users.

FlexConnect Peer-to-Peer Blocking

Administrators now have the ability to disable peer-to-peer communications for FlexConnect APs. Once enabled, peer-to-peer communication on the WLAN is blocked. This feature limits vulnerabilities from insecure peer-to-peer client communication.

Rogue Enhancements

This feature provides the ability to configure a minimum RSSI value for rogue clients, report after a minimum time, ignore transient rogue, and not track friendly rogue. The benefits of this feature include advanced controls for rogue monitoring, detection, and management.


Note This feature is applicable for rogue APs only. Rogue clients and ad hoc clients are not considered.



Note Only monitor mode APs can be configured with transient rogue interval.


Rogue AP Alarm Severity Customization

This feature provides the ability to customize rogue AP alarm severity so that it can be tied to e-mail notifications in NCS. When this happens, you can choose receive alerts for malicious rogues only.

KTS-based CAC Support for NEC

Key Telephone System (KTS)-based CAC is a protocol that is used in NEC MH240 wireless IP telephones. You can configure the controller to support CAC on KTS-based SIP clients, to process bandwidth request message from such clients, to allocate the required bandwidth on the AP radio, and to handle other messages that are part of the protocol.

Multi-level Filters in Client Reports

This feature enables you to use more than one filter in reports.

Advanced Filters in Client and Users Page

This feature supports advanced filters in the Clients and Users page, which is similar to the Alarms page.

Graphical Display of Historical Client

This feature provides the ability to show graphical charts to trend client counts on the Access Points Detail page.

Batch Reports and Templates

This feature provides the ability to create a report template at the root domain, and turn it into a template for all member domains so that a report can be created and populated to all domains under it.

Wi-Fi Direct Client Management

The Wi-Fi Direct Client Management feature is a flexible architecture used to support and detect Wi-Fi direct clients; therefore, it prevents enterprise vulnerability with this new technology.

TPCv2 Support

This feature enables you to optimize the coverage and the interference in a coordinated way based on the measurement readings from APs. TPCv2 identifies the deployment density that each AP experiences and determines TxPower for that AP.

RF Profiles

In NCS 1.1, the existing AP Groups are extended to support different configuration profiles called RF Profiles. An RF Profile is a group of related parameters that can be applied to one or more AP Groups. RF Profiles allow the administrator to tune groups of APs sharing a common coverage zone together.

Alloy WLAN QoS

The Alloy WLAN QoS feature provides the capability to properly prioritize the multiple traffic types that a multifunction device sends across the same WLAN. Under Alloy WLAN, the metal names Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze are now treated as a profile name. Alloy WLAN QoS solves the multicast-unicast priority problem by placing non-WMM clients in the default multicast QoS priority queue.

CleanAir Phase 2 Enhancements

As part of the CleanAir Phase 2 Enhancements, the following functionalites are added to NCS:

Persistent Device avoidance

Minimizes the use of channels affected by persistent interferences.

Persistent devices are detected by local and monitor mode AP propagated to both CleanAir and non-CleanAir APs.

Custom Event Driven RRM Threshold

Ability for the radio to change channel in reaction to strong interference reported in the form of Air Quality Index.

Air Quality Unclassified

New alarm triggered by the severity of unclassified category going above a configured threshold.

ISE 1.1 Enhancements

The enhancements for ISE 1.1 for this release include support for Local Web Authentication (LWA) and Central Web Authentication (CWA). This feature enables RADIUS NAC enabled WLAN to support additional configuration using Open Authentication and MAC filtering enabling devices like smart phones and tablets to connect to the corporate wireless network. For local web authentication with RADIUS NAC, web-auth is also supported.

Important Notes

This section describes important information about NCS.

This section contains the following topics:

Physical and Virtual Appliance

New License Structure

Wired Client Discovery

Autonomous AP Migration Analysis

New License Structure

Physical and Virtual Appliance

NCS is available as a physical or virtual appliance. Both are self-contained, and include the operating system, application, and database. These availability options speed up deployments and deliver greater deployment flexibility.

New License Structure

NCS is deployed through physical or virtual appliances. Use the License Center Graphical User Interface (Choose Administration > License Center from the NCS home page) to add new licenses, which is locked by the Cisco Unique Device Identifier (UDI). When NCS is deployed on a virtual appliance, the licensing is similar to a physical appliance, except instead of using a UDI, you use a Virtual Unique Device Identifier (VUDI). The NCS license is recognized by the SKU, which is usually attached to every purchase order to clearly identify which software or package is purchased by a customer. For more information about UDI or VUDI, see the Cisco Prime Network Control System Configuration Guide, Release 1.1.

Wired Client Discovery

Wired client discovery depends on the Content Address Memory (CAM) table on the switch and this table is populated with the clients data. When a wired client is not active (not sending traffic) for a certain amount of time, usually five minutes, the corresponding client entry in the CAM table times out and is removed. In this case, the client is not discovered in NCS.

Autonomous AP Migration Analysis

Migration Analysis used to run autonomous AP during discovery can be configured by selecting the Run Autonomous AP Migration Analysis on discovery check box in the Administrator > Settings > CLI Session page. By default, this option is disabled.

Importing Maps

The Aeroscout engine fails to start MSE if the importing map names contain special characters such as '&'.

Monitoring Disk Usage

You can monitor the current disk usage from the NCS > Administration > Appliance page.

When the NCS backup background task fails, it indicates there is an issue with disk space. Choose NCS > Administration > Background Tasks to check the status of the NCS Backup Task.

Recommendations for Managing Disk Usage

We recommend the following to effectively utilize and manage disk space in the NCS server:

Clean up some of the old files in the /dev/mapper/smosvg-localdiskvol partition so that there is some space available in this partition. This partition is the user-accessible area of the disk where any reports, FTP files, and local repository files are stored. This partition should have some free space so that files can be stored in this location. If this partition is full then any attempt to store files will fail.

There are two ways to clean up the files located in this partition:

Log in to NCS CLI as an admin User and enter the delete disk:/dir/filename command to delete files from the /dev/mapper/smosvg-localdiskvol partition.

Log in to NCS CLI as an admin User and enter the ncs cleanup command. You are prompted to confirm if you want to delete all files in the local disk partition.

Configure the NCS backup background task so that it uses a remote repository. This helps you to manage the space in the local disk partition effectively. You can configure a remote repository using any of the following protocols:

FTP

NFS

SFTP

TFTP

Example remote repository configuration:

ncs-appliance/admin# configure
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
ncs-appliance/admin(config)# repository remote_repository
ncs-appliance/admin(config-Repository)# url ?
  <WORD>  Enter repository URL, including server and path info (Max Size - 80)
  cdrom:  Local CD-ROM drive (read only)
  disk:   Local hard disk storage
  ftp:    URL using a FTP server
  http: URL using a HTTP server (read only)
  https: URL using a HTTPS server (read only)
  nfs:    URL using a NFS server
  sftp:   URL using a SFTP server
  tftp:   URL using a TFTP server
ncs-appliance/admin(config-Repository)# url ftp://hostname/rootDir.
 
   
 
   

Ensure the used disk space in the /dev/mapper/smosvg-optvol partition is below 70% so that the backup attempts do not fail. If you encounter backup failures then you can configure a remote NFS mount for the backup task. This remote NFS mount should be an open share with read and write permissions.

Example remote staging area configuration:

ncs-appliance/admin# configure
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
ncs-appliance/admin(config)# backup-staging-url ?
  <WORD>  NFS URL for staging area (Max Size - 2048)
ncs-appliance/admin(config)# backup-staging-url nfs://hostname:/mount
ncs-appliance/admin(config)# exit
ncs-appliance/admin#
 
   
 
   

Add additional disk space in a virtual appliance if you encounter disk space issues.

If you have additional disk space available with your deployed virtual appliance, you can modify that virtual appliance to use more of that space. For this release, contact Cisco TAC to help in increasing the disk space available to the Virtual Appliance.

Change the data retention period for aggregated data if you want to manage the disk space. To change the retention period for aggregated data, choose NCS > Administration > Settings > Data Management and change the values.

Table 5 provides the recommendations for changing the data retention period for aggregated data.

Table 5 Data Retention Period for Aggregated Data - Recommendations

Aggregation
Default
Recommendation for systems with more than 5000 clients

Hourly

31 days

15 days

Daily

90 days

60 days

Weekly

54 weeks

54 weeks


The settings decide how long NCS retains the aggregated data. NCS polls for statistics data every hour, day, and week. The statistics data is used to generate trending charts or reports. You can significantly reduce the size of many aggregated tables by reducing the size of the aggregation period. The drawback being the granularity of trending charts or reports might be bigger.

For example, if you create a four weeks long Client Count chart, with the default setting, the hourly data is used. It means it has 4*7*24=672 data points (samples). With the new setting, the daily data is used and it has 4*7=28 data points. You see no change if you create a chart or report for less than 2 weeks.

Cisco Flex 7500 with IBM M1015 RAID card

Cisco Mobility Services Engine - MSE-3355 with IBM 5015 RAID card

Cisco Prime NCS Appliance with IBM 5015 RAID card

While booting up, the following error message appears on the attached monitor or on serial console.

"All the disks from your previous configuration are gone. If this is an 
unexpected message, then please power off your system and check your system 
and check your cables to ensure all disks are present. Press any key to 
continue or C to load the configuration utility"

When Space key is pressed the system is unable to boot from disk. During bootup, the LSI WebBIOS loads fine and shows two physical disks being present but no virtual (logical) disks. The behavior points to a loss of the RAID configuration that was present on the system.

Cause/Analysis: Most likely, the box went through an accidental power interruption (i.e., the power was interrupted while the system was operational). Upon reboot, the RAID card could not find its configuration in the non-volatile memory and therefore it could not boot. Basically, the configuration stored in non-volatile memory was corrupted/erased due to the power interruption. The RAID card does keep a backup of the configuration on the hard drives too. However, when the card loses the configuration information stored in the non-volatile memory, it does not automatically pickup the backup configuration information from the hard drives. The information on the hard drives is considered a "foreign configuration" that requires explicit user intervention before it can be loaded. At this time, the system will wait for the user to take action. Remember that all the data on the hard drives are still intact.

Action/Remedy: When this situation is encountered, the user/administrator must enter the RAID management tool. There are two version of this tool - one that uses extensive menus and requires an attached monitor and another that is completely based on the command lines (CLI). The CLI version can be accessed from the serial console or from a directly connected monitor. During the bootup process, you'll see a message for invoking the CLI based RAID management tool, right after the error message Press Ctrl-H for WbeBIOS or Ctrl-Y for Preboot-CLI. Enter the CLI version of the utility by pressing Ctrl-Y and then type in the following command

-CfgForeign -Import -a0

Next, reboot the server and everything should be back to normal
