||Log in to the Cisco UCS Director ShellAdmin on the primary node and all service nodes.|
||On the primary node and all service nodes, to verify that all services are running, choose Display services status.
All services must be running before you start the upgrade procedure. If necessary, choose Start services and then verify that all services are running.
||On the primary and all service nodes, choose Stop services and ensure that all services all stopped on the nodes.
Ensure that all services are stopped on the primary and service nodes before you can upgrade the inventory and monitoring database nodes.
|| In the ShellAdmin for the inventory database node and the monitoring database node, choose Apply patch to upgrade the nodes to Release 6.5. |
||At the Services will be stopped before applying patch. Do you want to continue [y/n]?, enter y.
When all services are stopped on the database nodes, the upgrade continues.
||At the Do you want to take database backup before applying patch [y/n]? prompt, enter one of the following: |
- y to back up the Cisco UCS Director database.
- n if you took a snapshot of the VM before you started.
||When prompted for the Patch URL, type the location of the Release 6.5 patch and press Enter
For example, if you stored the software patch on an FTP server, enter ftp://username:password@hostname|IP_address/software_location_and_name
||Wait for the patch to download to the Cisco UCS Director VM.
If the patch installation fails after the download because you did not add a second database disk to the inventory database and monitoring database nodes, do the following in your hypervisor manager:
Power off your Cisco UCS Director VM.
Add a second disk to the VM that meets the minimum requirements. See Database Disk Requirements. If you do not know the size of your current database, the upgrade message provides that information.
Power on your Cisco UCS Director VM.
When you have added the database disk, repeat this upgrade procedure, starting at step 1.
||Wait for the patch upgrade to complete. .
The upgrade process performs many steps including the following:
Unpacks the patch file.
Installs the Release 6.5 files
Formats the second database disk.
Copies the existing database to the new disk.
Initializes the database schema.
Reboots the Cisco UCS Director appliance. The Cisco UCS Director services start automatically.
Depending upon the size of your database, the upgrade process can take several minutes to complete.
|| In the ShellAdmin, choose Display services status and verify that all database services on the monitoring database node and inventory database node have started.
If necessary, you can choose the Start Database option to start the services on the database nodes.
|| Upgrade the service nodes using the Apply Patch option as described in the steps above. |
|| Upgrade the primary node using the Apply Patch option as described in the steps above.
The patch process is not complete or successful until all Cisco UCS Director services have started, Cisco UCS Director is available, the login screen is displayed, and the admin user can log in to Cisco UCS Director.
All Cisco UCS Director services must be started before you attempt to perform other ShellAdmin procedures, such as apply additional patches, take a database backup, or restore a database from a backup.
||Verify that all services have started on the service nodes and the primary nodes. |
||When the upgrade is complete, verify that the version and build in the Cisco UCS Director ShellAdmin on all nodes match the version and build of the patch that you downloaded from Cisco.com.
You can find the version and build in the following locations:
