Upgrading WLSE Software

Notes on upgrading software:

You can upgrade to Release 2.15.1 if you have a WLSE 1130, WLSE 1130-19, WLSE 1030 or WLSE 1133 already running Release 2.15.

If you are running a WLSE Release prior to 2.15, you will have to perform an intermediate upgrade to 2.15 and then a final upgrade to 2.15.1.

Perform a backup of the WLSE before performing the WLSE 2.15.1 upgrade. (The WLSE 2.15.1 upgrade attempts to preserve the WLSE database. A backup is needed if there is an error during the WLSE 2.15.1 upgrade.)

For upgrading WLSE's configured in Redundant mode, please refer to the upgrade instructions for WLSE 2.15 available online at the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/cscowork/ps3915/products_upgrade_guides09186a00805ad4e8.html

On some versions of McAfee's VShield the zip file download will stop and stay in a "not responding" state for a long time if "Scan compressed files" is enabled in the "Download Scan" property. Cisco Systems has checked the zip file and its contents against viruses so you may turn off this property for the download.

WLSE Release 2.15.1 has been tested with Java Plug-in version 1.5_0_6 but other versions might also work. The Java Plug-in files can be downloaded from this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/tablebuild.p/wlan-sol-eng

or from this URL:

http://java.sun.com

A Cisco.com login is required for downloading plug-in files from Cisco's web site.

Supported Upgrade Path

Upgrade is supported from WLSE 2.15 to WLSE 2.15.1.

Upgrading Using a Microsoft Windows Server Repository

Follow these steps to upgrade software using a Microsoft Windows server repository:


Step 1 Download WLSE-2.15.1u-K9.zip from Cisco.com.

Step 2 Extract the file to any empty directory (for example, <drive1:>\<path>) on your Microsoft Windows NT or Windows 2000 or Windows XP. This server will function as the Repository.

Step 3 Open a command window and run:

subst <drive2:> <drive1:>\<path>

The virtual drive (<drive2:>) is removed after you log out of the Windows PC and then log back in again, or when you restart the Microsoft Windows server. Enter subst /? for more information.

Step 4 Open <drive2:> using Windows Explorer or My Computer.

Step 5 If the drive opens and "Autoplay" is enabled, autorun.bat will run automatically. If it does not, double-click autorun.bat.

Step 6 A browser displays the Appliance Update screen. Minimize this window.

Step 7 Log in to the WLSE as the admin user through Telnet or SSH.


Note Telnet is disabled by default.


Step 8 Enter the CLI install mode by entering the CLI command install. In the install mode, configure the repository server using the configure url subcommand as follows:

install: configure url http://<ipaddress>:9851

where <ipaddress> is the IP address of the Windows Server.

Step 9 Install the upgrade using the update install command as follows:

install: update WLSE-2.15.1u

Depending on the current data on the WLSE, it might take 10 to 15 minutes for the upgrade to complete. The WLSE reboots automatically after the upgrade process completes.

Step 10 After performing upgrade and restore to 2.15.1, run a manual inventory job on all managed devices.


Upgrading Using the WLSE Server Repository

Follow these steps to upgrade software using the WLSE server repository:


Step 1 Download the upgrade zip file (WLSE-2.15.1u-K9.zip) and the info file (WLSE-2.15.1u-K9.info), then place the files in an FTP-accessible location.


Note Do not unzip the WLSE-2.15.1u-K9.zip file.


Step 2 Log into WLSE as the admin user through Telnet or SSH. Use the repository CLI command to configure the FTP host and pathname.

repository source ftp://<hostname>/<path>

where <hostname> is the hostname of the remote FTP server and <path> is the complete directory path where the upgrade zip file and upgrade info file have been placed.

Step 3 List the contents of the source using the repository CLI command. The command requires a valid username and password on the remote FTP server.

repository list remote

Step 4 Add the upgrade image to the local repository. The command requires a valid username and password on the remote FTP server. This username and password are the same as in the above command.

repository add WLSE-2.15.1u-K9

Step 5 Execute the CLI command install. In the install mode, configure the repository server using the configure url subcommand as follows:

install: configure url http://127.0.0.1:9851

Step 6 Install the upgrade using the update install command.

install: update WLSE-2.15.1u

Depending on the current data on the WLSE, it might take 10 to 15 minutes for the upgrade to complete. The WLSE reboots automatically once the upgrade process completes.

Step 7 After performing upgrade/restore to 2.15.1, run a manual inventory job on all managed devices.
