ISC 5.1.1 is a maintenance release that supports upgrading from ISC 5.1 only.
Note To install the ISC 5.1.1 maintenance release, you must have ISC 5.1 installed.
If you are upgrading from a version of ISC prior to ISC 3.2.2, see Chapter 2 in the Cisco IP Solution Center Installation Guide, 5.1.
You must install ISC 5.1 first, as explained in the Release Notes for Cisco IP Solution Center, 5.1. Then download and install the ISC 5.1.1 maintenance release located at http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/tablebuild.pl/isc on the same server.
Note If you are planning to use an Oracle database, understand that ISC 5.1.1 has been tested with Oracle Database 10g, Enterprise Edition Release 10.2.0.1.0 - 64 bit Production. If you would like to use another version of Oracle 10g, see Oracle's compatibility information. If you are upgrading ISC and were using a version of Oracle other than 10g, you must transfer your Repository to Oracle 10g. This can be done using Oracle import/export utilities or other methods. Proceed to Appendix A in the Cisco IP Solution Center Installation Guide, 5.1 before continuing with the ISC installation. After you complete the Oracle set up, return here.
To upgrade, follow these steps:
Step 1 Before upgrading to this ISC 5.1.1 Maintenance Release, complete the discovery workflow. Otherwise, when you upgrade these previously initiated discovery workflows, the data discovered during that process might be lost.
Step 2 Before proceeding to install the ISC 5.1.1 Maintenance Release, be sure to back up your repository, as explained in Appendix C of the Cisco IP Solution Center Installation Guide, 5.1 (http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/net_mgmt/ip_solution_center/5.1/installation/guide/install.html).
Step 3 Go to http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/tablebuild.pl/isc (where, in tablebuild.pl, the last character is the lower-case letter "l") to retrieve the ISC 5.1.1 Maintenance Release (isc-5.1.1-patch.tar.gz).
Step 4 Prior to installing the ISC 5.1.1 Maintenance Release, verify that you have 100 MB of free space in the $ISC_HOME directory and that you are logged in with the same username as the owner of your supported version of ISC.
Step 5 Source the ISC environment file in the $ISC_HOME/bin directory:
For sh, ksh, and variant shells: . $ISC_HOME/bin/vpnenv.sh
For csh and variant shells: source $ISC_HOME/bin/vpnenv.csh
Step 6 Navigate to a directory other than $ISC_HOME.
Step 7 Use the following command to untar and unzip the isc-5.1.1-patch.tar.gz file:
gunzip -c isc-5.1.1-patch.tar.gz | tar xf -
Step 8 If ISC is running, use the following command to stop the database, name server, and WatchDog on the machine on which it is running:
Step 9 Use the following command to run the installation script:
b. To accept the default value for a prompt indicated in [ ], for example, [n] or [y], press Enter. To terminate the installer at any time, press Ctrl-C. Specifically, you are asked to enter a new path or press Enter for the default [<ISC_OWNER_HOME_DIR>/isc-5.1.1].
c. At the end of the installation, you receive a message that the installation is complete.
Step 10 Enter the startwd command to restart ISC.
To uninstall the ISC 5.1.1 Maintenance Release that was successfully installed by following the steps in the "Upgrade Paths" section, follow these steps:
Step 1 Log in with the same username as the owner of ISC.
Step 2 If ISC 5.1.1 is running, navigate to the directory $ISC_HOME/patch/isc5.1.1-patch, where all the files replaced by the ISC 5.1.1 Maintenance Release were stored.
Step 3 Source the ISC environment file in the $ISC_HOME/bin directory:
For sh, ksh, and variant shells: . $ISC_HOME/bin/vpnenv.sh
For csh and variant shells: source $ISC_HOME/bin/vpnenv.csh
Step 4 Use the following command to stop the database, name server, and WatchDog on the machine on which it is running:
Step 5 Use the following command to run the script to uninstall:
b. To accept the default value for a prompt indicated in [ ], for example, [n] or [y], press Enter. To terminate the installer at any time, press Ctrl-C.
c. At the end of the uninstall, you receive a message that the rollback is complete.
Step 6 Enter the startwd command to restart ISC.
1. All ISC patches and maintenance releases are available at: http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/tablebuild.pl/isc.
2. The supported Sybase and Oracle databases behave differently. All GUI queries are case-insensitive for Sybase and case-sensitive for Oracle.
3. ISC does not work with pop-up blockers in a web browser. If you have pop-up blockers installed, disable them.
4. When using an external Oracle database, the embedded Sybase database is still automatically launched for SLA support.
5. For all APIs, the service request name is unique and therefore, each Create Service Request API call needs to maintain this uniqueness.
