Unified SIP Proxy - Upgrading
Return to the main Cisco Unified SIP Proxy DocWiki page: Cisco Unified SIP Proxy
To upgrade to Cisco Unified SIP Proxy Release 8.5 from an earlier release, follow the instructions in the Installation Guide for Cisco Unified SIP Proxy Release 8.5 at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/cusp/rel8_5/install/cusp_install.html
To upgrade to Cisco Unified SIP Proxy Release 1.1.4 from an earlier release, follow these steps:
- Back up your Cisco Unified SIP Proxy configuration. This is important, because upgrading the code erases your configuration. Also, make sure you are in hostname(cusp)# when you copy the configuration out. The easiest way to back up the configuration is to use the following command: "hostname(cusp)#copy config active ftp:"
- Using this command allows you to specify the IP address of an FTP server to back up your configuration.
- Go to the FTP server and verify that your Cisco Unified SIP Proxy configuration did indeed get transferred and that you can view the file without any problems. You will be restoring from this file shortly.
- Download the following files from cisco.com to an FTP server somewhere with an anonymous account (with any password accepted) setup.:
- NOTE: You DO NOT have the option to input a username and password when initiating the install on the Cisco Unified SIP Proxy CLI.
- Go to the CLI of the NME. Start typing "software install" and the system will give you a few different options. One of them is "upgrade". Unfortunately, "upgrade" is not a valid option for upgrading your Cisco Unified SIP Proxy software. The only option that is valid is "clean". The full syntax for the upgrade is "software install clean url ftp://10.0.0.1/cusp-k9.nme.1.1.4.pkg".
- NOTE: A clean install ERASES your config. So be sure that you backed up your config before you do this.
- The NME reboots and begins the initialization wizard. Your NME config gets saved in flash, so you'll be prompted to restore that. Once it has reached the hostname> prompt, type "cusp" to go into CUSP EXEC mode, and then type in "copy ftp: config active". Here you'll specify the IP address of the FTP server used in step 1 to back your old configuration up. You'll also need to know the name of the file as it was saved to the FTP server. By default it is "<hostname>.cusp.cfg" (where <hostname> is whatever you named your CUSP NME). A reboot will take place once the file is transferred, and this completes the upgrade process.
