In this post we will see how to upgrade prime using its command line interface (CLI). You can use GUI as well, but it is much quicker if you could upload the patch/upgrade files onto local FTP server & then apply it onto prime. You can use “show version” CLI command to verify current prime version.

Version : 1.4.0.45
Patch: Cisco Prime Network Control System Version: Update-1_16_for_version_1_4_0_45

We will use this to upgrde to PI 1.4.1 (patch PI_1.4_0_45_Update_1-39.tar.gz) to support new 3700 series AP. You can download these patches from the software section of PI in CCO page as shown below. You also need to check the release notes (Here is 1.4.1 release notes) to make sure your upgrade path is correct & its compatibility with other products.

PI-Patch-01

 

You can upload these patches or upgrade images to a repository on your prime. There is default repository called “defaultRepo” . I have created a separate  repository called “localftp” & create a username password like “admin/Cisco123?

primedev/admin(config)# repository ?
  <WORD>  Repository name (Max Size - 80)

primedev/admin(config)# repository localftp
primedev/admin(config-Repository)# ?
Configure Repository:
  do    EXEC command
  end   Exit from configure mode
  exit  Exit from this submode
  no    Negate a command or set its defaults
  url   Configure Repository URL
  user  Configure repository username and password for access

primedev/admin(config-Repository)# url disk:/ftp
primedev/admin(config-Repository)# user ?
  <WORD>  Username for repository access (Max Size - 30)

primedev/admin(config-Repository)# user admin ?
  password  Configure repository password for access

primedev/admin(config-Repository)# user admin password ?
  hash   Specifies an ENCRYPTED (hashed) password will follow
  plain  Specifies an UNENCRYPTED plain text password will follow

primedev/admin(config-Repository)# user admin password plain ?
  <WORD>  Plain text password for repository access (Max Size - 40)

primedev/admin(config-Repository)# user admin password plain Cisco123
primedev/admin(config-Repository)# exit
primedev/admin(config)# exit
primedev/admin# write memory

You can create username & password for FTP access using the below command. There is default FTP user called “ftp-user” also there if you like to use it.

rimedev/admin# ncs password ?
  ftpuser  Modifies ftp username and password
  root     Modifies root user login password
primedev/admin# ncs password ftpuser ?
  <WORD>  Type in the username (Max Size - 80)
primedev/admin# ncs password ftpuser admin ?
  password  Modifies ftp password
primedev/admin# ncs password ftpuser admin password ?
  <WORD>  Type in the ftp password (Max Size - 80)

primedev/admin# ncs password ftpuser admin password Cisco123 
Initializing...
Updating FTP password.
This may take a few minutes...
Successfully updated location ftp user

Now using any FTP client you can connect to this FTP server to upload the patch file. I have used Filezila client which is freely available from here. You can use the “admin/Cisco123? user credential connect to prime FTP server as shown below.

PI-Patch-02

Then you can drag & drop the required patch file onto PI repository you created as shown below.PI-Patch-03

Once copied you can verify using “show repository <Repository_Name>” command as shown below.

primedev/admin# show repository localftp
PI_1.4_0_45_Update_1-16.tar.gz
PI_1.4_0_45_Update_1-39.gz

Then you can install patch using the “patch install <filename> <repository_name>” CLI command as shown below. It may take few minutes (depend on the upgrade) & you should see the successful patch information message at the end.

primedev/admin# patch install ?
  <WORD>  Patch bundle file name (Max Size - 255)
primedev/admin# patch ?
  install  Install a Patch Bundle
  remove   Uninstall An Application Patch
primedev/admin# patch install ?
  <WORD>  Patch bundle file name (Max Size - 255)
primedev/admin# patch install PI_1.4_0_45_Update_1-39.gz ?
  <WORD>  Name of the configured remote repository (Max Size - 255)

primedev/admin# patch install PI_1.4_0_45_Update_1-39.gz localftp
Save the current ADE-OS running configuration? (yes/no) [yes] ? yes

If it is software upgrade with upgrade bundle, then you have to use “application upgrade <upgradebundle_filename> <repository_name>” command

primedev/admin# application ?
  install       Install An Application Bundle
  remove        Uninstall An Application
  reset-config  Reset application configuration to factory defaults

primedev/admin# application upgrade <PI_Upgrade_bundle> ?

primedev/admin# application upgrade <PI_Upgrade_bundle> <repository_name>

You can verify the version with “show version”  or “show application version NCS” command.
