Upgrade a Standalone Node
You can use the application upgrade command directly, or the application upgrade prepare and proceed commands in the specified sequence to upgrade a standalone node.
You can run the application upgrade command from the CLI on a standalone node that assumes the Administration, Policy Service, pxGrid, and Monitoring personas. If you choose to run this command directly, we recommend that you copy the upgrade bundle from the remote repository to the Cisco ISE node's local disk before you run the application upgrade command to save time during upgrade.
Alternatively, you can use the application upgrade prepare and application upgrade proceed commands. The application upgrade prepare command downloads the upgrade bundle and extracts it locally. This command copies the upgrade bundle from the remote repository to the Cisco ISE node's local disk. After you have prepared a node for upgrade, run the application upgrade proceed command to complete the upgrade successfully.
We recommend that you run the application upgrade prepare and proceed commands as described below.
Before you begin
Ensure that you have read the instructions in the Prepare for Upgrade chapter.
Create a repository on the local disk. For example, you can create a repository called "upgrade."
From the Cisco ISE command line interface (CLI), enter application upgrade prepare command.
This command copies the upgrade bundle to the local repository "upgrade" that you created in the previous step and lists the MD5 and SHA256 checksum.
Enter Y to continue.
The upgrade package is extracted. The following message appears.
From the Cisco ISE CLI, enter the application upgrade proceed command.
The upgrade is now complete.
