Cisco Prime Infrastructure Upgrade Path 2.0.x to 3.0.x

Bei einem Kunden eine ältere Prime Infrastructure Version 2.0.x am laufen, die nun auf Version 3.0 upgraded werden soll. 

Es ist leider nicht möglich ein direktes Upgrade von Prime Infrastructure 2.0.x auf 3.0.x durchzuführen, mehre Schritte sind notwendig. Nebst inline Upgrade von Zwischenversionen, ist es auch notwendig teils eine neue VM, ab .OVA hochzuziehen und ein Backup export + Backup Import vorzunehmen.

Nachfolgend eine Übersicht der Steps:

Upgrade Guide 2.2.x

If You Are Upgrading From Previous Releases of Prime Infrastructure

This version of Prime Infrastructure does not offer an in-place upgrade. To upgrade to the latest version, you must instead install this version of Prime Infrastructure as a virtual appliance on a fresh server, or order it pre-installed on a fresh physical appliance. You can then migrate your data from your old Prime Infrastructure installation to the new one, using an application backup from the previous installation.
If you are currently using one of the following versions of Prime Infrastructure, you can back up your existing data and then restore that data to a different server running Prime Infrastructure 2.2:
  • Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.1.2 (with the UBF patch)
  • Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.1.1 (with the UBF patch)
  • Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.1.0.0.87
  • Cisco Prime Infrastructure 1.4.2
  • Cisco Prime Infrastructure 1.4.1
  • Cisco Prime Infrastructure 1.4.0.45

Upgrade 2.1.0.0.87

 
Upgrading Cisco Prime Infrastructure

You can upgrade the following Cisco Prime Infrastructure (and predecessor) products to Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.1:
Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.0.0.0.294
Cisco Prime Infrastructure 1.3.0.20

If you are using a version earlier than 1.3.0.20, see the instructions for upgrading your software to version 2.0 provided in the Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.0 Quick Start Guide . There is no upgrade path from version 1.4.x to version 2.1 at present.

Before attempting to upgrade to 2.1, make sure that you download the appropriate patch listed in Table 7 . and then install it using the instructions in Installing Patches . Once you have installed the appropriate patches, you will also need to take a new application backup before performing a system migration or inline upgrade.
