NoteFile:Blank.gif Read the procedures in this document before you begin the upgrade.



   File:Note.gif  

NoteFile:Blank.gif R9.2.3.1 supports parallel upgrades for multiple nodes in a network. In a parallel upgrade, you can activate only one node at a time. However, you can begin activation of the next node as soon as the controller cards for the current node have rebooted successfully (wait five minutes from the time the SYSBOOT alarm is raised).



   File:Caut.gif  

  Caution When managing end-to-end circuits participating in an 

ML-Series resilient packet ring (RPR) across multiple nodes involved in a

parallel upgrade, all nodes participating in these circuits must have 

completed the activation before the end-to-end traffic resumes.


Document Procedures

Procedures in this document must be performed sequentially unless noted otherwise. Ensure that the procedure is completed for each node in a given network. If you are new to upgrading the
software, make a printed copy of this document and use it as a checklist.


Each non-trouble procedure (NTP) is a list of steps designed to be accomplished in a specific order. Follow the steps until the procedure is complete. If you need more detailed instructions, refer to the detail-level procedure (DLP) specified in the procedure steps. Throughout this guide, NTPs are referred to as “procedures” and DLPs as “tasks.” Every reference to a procedure includes an NTP number, and every reference to a task includes a DLP number.


The DLP (task) supplies additional task details to support the NTP. The DLP lists numbered steps that lead you through completion of a task. Some steps mandate that equipment indications be checked for verification. When the proper response is not obtained, a trouble clearing reference is provided.


This section lists the document procedures (NTPs). Turn to a procedure for applicable tasks (DLPs).

After the common control cards finish resetting and all associated alarms clear, you can safely proceed to the next step. (If you are upgrading remotely and cannot see the nodes, wait for 5 minutes for the process to complete, then check to ensure that related alarms have cleared before proceeding.)

 File:Caut.gif  

  Caution The upgrade process is service affecting, so Cisco 

recommends that you activate the new load during a maintenance window. Ethernet traffic might remain down from the time the ONS 15310-CTX-CL cards switch to the time all Ethernet cards have finished resetting.


Step 11blank.gif In CTC, choose File > Exit.


Step 12blank.gif In your browser window, click the Delete CTC Cache button. A confirmation dialog box appears.


Step 13blank.gif Click the Yes button to confirm.

 File:Note.gif  

NoteFile:Blank.gif You must ensure that CTC is closed before clicking the Delete CTC Cache button. CTC behavior becomes unreliable if this button is clicked when the software is still running. Ensure that the cached files from your browser’s directory are deleted, or from the TEMP directory in your Microsoft Windows workstation. If you have trouble reconnecting to CTC, complete the U459 Delete Cached JAR Files.



Step 14blank.gif Close your browser and then reopen it.

 File:Note.gif  

Note Step 15 is necessary only after upgrading the first node in a network, because cached files only need to be removed from your workstation once. For the remaining nodes, you will still be disconnected and removed to the network view during the node reboot, but after the reboot is complete, CTC restores connectivity to the node.



Step 15blank.gif (Optional) Run the Cache Loader pre-caching utility, which can improve your speed logging back into CTC after an upgrade. Perform the following steps to run the Cache Loader.


a.blank.gif Load the software R9.2.3.1 CD into your CD-ROM drive. If the directory of the CD does not open automatically, open it.

NoteFile:Blank.gif The tasks to revert to a previous load are not a part of the upgrade. They are provided here as a convenience to those wishing to perform a revert after an upgrade. If you have performed all necessary procedures up to this point, you have finished the software upgrade.



   File:Note.gif  

NoteFile:Blank.gif Before you upgraded to software R9.2.3.1, you should have backed up the existing database at all nodes in the network (this is part of the U429 Back Up the Software Database). Cisco recommends that you record or export all critical information to your hard drive. If you need to revert to the backup database, use the following tasks, in order.




Step 1blank.gif Log into the node. For detailed instructions, refer to the procedure guide. If you are already logged in, continue with Step 2.


Step 2blank.gif Complete the U461 Revert to Protect Load.

 File:Note.gif  

NoteFile:Blank.gif Do not perform U462 Manually Restore the Database unless the software revert failed.



Step 3blank.gif If the software reversion to your previous release failed to restore the database, complete the U462 Manually Restore the Database.

File:Note.gif

NoteFile:Blank.gif To perform a supported (non-service-affecting) reversion from software R9.2.3.1, the release you want to revert to must have been working at the time you activated to software R9.2.3.1 on that node. Also, a supported reversion automatically restores the node configuration at the time of the previous activation. Thus, any configuration changes made after activation are lost when you revert the software. The exception to this is when you have downloaded software R9.2.3.1 a second time, to ensure that no actual reversion to a previous load can take place. In the latter case, reversion occurs, but traffic is not affected and there are no changes to the database.




Step 1blank.gif From the node view, click the Maintenance tab and then click the Software button.


Step 2blank.gif Verify that the protect software displays the release you upgraded from.


Step 3blank.gif Click the Revert button. Reversion activates the protect software and restores the database from the previous load. A dialog box asks you to confirm the choice.


Step 4blank.gif Click Yes. This begins the reversion. CTC drops the connection to the node and takes you to the network view, displaying a confirmation dialog box.


Step 5blank.gif Click OK and wait until the software reversion finishes before continuing.

 File:Note.gif  

NoteFile:Blank.gif The system reboot might take up to 4 minutes to complete.



Step 6blank.gif Wait one minute before reverting another node.


Step 7blank.gif After reverting all the nodes in the network, close and restart your Netscape or Internet Explorer browser and log into the last node that was reverted. This uploads the appropriate CTC applet to your workstation.

 File:Note.gif  

Note It might also be necessary to delete cached files from your browser’s directory or from the TEMP directory on your MS Windows workstation. If you have trouble reconnecting to CTC, see the U459 Delete Cached JAR Files.

Wait one minute before restoring the next node.


You have now completed the manual database restore.

 File:Note.gif  

Note When the complete database is restored, the node does not report an event regarding the IP change; the node reboots and configures the new IP from the database. If the IP address being restored is not in the CTC network IP addressing scheme, you might lose visibility of the node. To resolve this, you must launch CTC with the IP mentioned in the table against the database backup. Refer to Table 1 “Manually Recorded Data” in the U429 Back Up the Software Database for more information.

File:Note.gif

Note This procedure assumes you are upgrading using Release 6.x TL1 syntax. TL1 commands issued prior to software activation to software R9.2.3.1 will vary in syntax depending on the release that you are upgrading from. To ensure that your syntax for each command is correct, use the TL1 syntax supplied in the Cisco ONS SONET TL1 Command Guide for your release when issuing the following commands:


  • ACT-USER
  • COPY-RFILE
  • REPT EVT FXFR
  • OPR-PROTNSW-<OCN_TYPE>
  • RTRV-COND-ALL
  • RTRV-ALM-ALL
 File:Note.gif  

NoteFile:Blank.gif To perform an R9.2.3.1 software download using TL1, you must first have an FTP server or a terminal emulation program like HyperTerminal running on your workstation.



   File:Note.gif  

Note The download (COPY-RFILE) command is different when downloading software to a gateway network element (GNE) or an end network element (ENE) under the following conditions:


  • FTP is being used.
  • Server is set up with a login and password of FTPUSER1 and FTPUSERPASSWORD1.
  • FTP server has an IP address of 10.1.1.1.
  • FTP server is running on the standard FTP port.
  • Software package is called “15310-03xx-A04K-1405.pkg, “15310ma-03xx-A04K-1405.pkg”, “15600-0xxx-xxxx-xxxx.pkg, “15600SDH-0xxx-xxxx-xxxx.pkg”, “15454-03xx-A04K-1405.pkg”, or “15454SDH-0xxx-xxxx-xxxx.pkg”.


The GNE and ENE commands are as follows:


  • When downloading software to a GNE, use a command similar to:
 COPY-RFILE:NODENAME:RFILE-PKG:CTAG::TYPE=SWDL, SRC=“ftp://FTPUSER1:FTPUSERPASSWORD1@10.1.1.1/*.pkg”;      
  • When downloading software to an ENE, use a command similar to:
 COPY-RFILE:NODENAME:RFILE-PKG:CTAG::TYPE=SWDL,   SRC=“ftp://FTPUSER1:FTPUSERPASSWORD1@10.111.11.1:21@90.90.90.90/*.pkg”;

The ":21" after the FTP server IP address 10.111.11.1 denotes port 21 on the server.


The software PKG file in the preceding example is located in the home directory of the FTP server. If the software PKG file is not in the home directory on the FTP server, insert the directory path where the software package resides between the last IP address and the PKG file in the command line.


An example is shown here.

 COPY-RFILE:NODENAME:RFILE-PKG:CTAG::TYPE=SWDL,   SRC=“ftp://FTPUSER1:FTPUSERPASSWORD1@10.1.1.1:21@90.90.90.90/CISCO/SOFTWARE/*.pkg”;      

Step 1blank.gif To use TL1 commands, set up an FTP session or use HyperTerminal or a similar terminal emulation package to establish a session with the node.


Step 2blank.gif Type the IP address for the node, using port 3083 or 2361.


The terminal emulation interface appears with a Warning message and a command prompt (usually >). TL1 commands can be executed at this prompt.


Step 3blank.gif Type the ACT-USER (Activate User) command in the TL1 request window to open a TL1 session:

 ACT-USER:[<TID>]:<uid>:<CTAG>[::<pid>];      

where:


  • <TID> is the target identifier (optional).
  • <uid> is the OSS profile user ID (required).
  • <CTAG> is the correlation tag that correlates command and response messages (optional).
  • <pid> is the password identifier (required).

For example, in the TL1 command:

 ACT-USER:CISCO99:100:PASSWORD;      

ACT-USER is the activation command, CISCO99 is the userid, 100 is the correlation tag (used to correlate commands to command responses), and PASSWORD is the password associated with the userid.


A response message containing the CTAG that you specified indicates the completion status of the command.


Step 4blank.gif Type the COPY-RFILE command in the TL1 window or, if using HyperTerminal, Select Transfer > Receive File, and use the associated dialog box to select a file to receive. The COPY-RFILE command downloads a new software package from the location specified by the FTP URL into the inactive Flash partition residing on either of the ONS 15310-CTX-CL cards.

 COPY-RFILE:[<TID>]:<AID>:<CTAG>:TYPE=<xfertype>,[SRC=<src1>],[DEST=<dest>],[OVWRT=<ovwrt>],[FTTD=<fttd>];              

where:


  • <TID> is the target identifier (optional).
  • <AID> identifies the facility in the node to which the switch request is directed.
  • <CTAG> is the correlation tag that correlates command and response messages (optional).
  • <xfertype> is the file transfer protocol (required).
  • <src1> specifies the source of the file to be transferred (required).
  • <dest> is the destination of the file to be transferred (required).
  • <ovwrt> is overwrite. If <ovwrt> is yes, then files should be overwritten. If <OVWRT> is no, then file transfers will fail if the file already exists at the destination (required).
  • <fttd> is the URL format (required).

Step 5blank.gif Repeat Step 4 for all nodes to be upgraded.


Step 6blank.gif Look for the REPT EVT FXFR message in the TL1 window. REPT EVT FXFR is an autonomous message used to report the start, completion, and completed percentage status of the software download. REPT EVT FXFR also reports any failure during the software upgrade, including invalid package, invalid path, invalid userid/password, and loss of network connection.


The format of the message is:

 REPT EVT FXFR        SID DATE TIME   A ATAG REPT EVT FXFR    "<FILENAME>,<FXFR_STATUS>,[<FXFR_RSLT>],[<BYTES_XFRD>]"   ;      

where:


  • <FILENAME> is a string and indicates the path name of the file transferred.
  • <FXFR_STATUS> indicates the file transferred status: Start, IP (in progress), or COMPLD.
  • <FXFR_RSLT> indicates the file transferred result: success or failure. FXFR_RSLT is optional (the FXFR_RSLT is only sent when the FXFR_STATUS is COMPLD).
  • <BYTES_XFRD> indicates the percentage transfer complete and is optional (the BYTES_XFRD is only sent when the FXFR_STATUS is IP or COMPLD).

Step 7blank.gif Complete U487 Preparing to Upgrade to a New Release for each node to be upgraded.


Step 8blank.gif Complete U429 Back Up the Software Database for each node to be upgraded.


Step 9blank.gif Lock out each BLSR span on each node being upgraded using the following command.

 OPR-PROTNSW-<OCN_TYPE>:[<TID>]:<AID>:<CTAG>::<SC>,[<SWITCHTYPE>][:<DIRN>];       

where:


  • <TID> is the target identifier (optional).
  • <AID> identifies the facility in the node to which the switch request is directed
  • <CTAG> is the correlation tag that correlates command and response messages (optional).
  • <SC> is the switch command that is to be initiated on the paths.
  • <SWITCHTYPE> BLSR switch type.
  • <DIRN> is the direction of transmission in which switching is to be made and is relative to the SONET line or path identified by the AID. The default value is RCV and should be changed to BTH.
 File:Note.gif  

Note Some nodes might have more than one BLSR. If this is the case, all BLSR spans on all nodes being upgraded need to be locked. Nodes that are not being upgraded need not have the BLSR spans locked. You must be aware of each span that is part of a BLSR to make sure all necessary spans are locked.



   File:Note.gif  

Note BLSR lockouts must remain in place until the upgrade is complete for all nodes.



   File:Note.gif  

Note Ignore any Default K alarms that occur on the protect STS time slots during the lockout.



   File:Note.gif  

Note Certain BLSR-related alarms might be raised following activation of the first node in the ring. The following alarms, if raised, are normal, and should not cause concern. They clear upon completion of the upgrade, after all nodes have been activated: BLSR-OOSYNC (MN); RING-MISMATCH (MJ); APSCDFLTK (MN); BLSR-RESYNC (NA).



Step 10blank.gif Verify that all necessary BLSR spans on each node being upgraded have been locked out using the following command:

 RTRV-PROTNSW-<OCN_TYPE>:[<TID>]:<AID>:<CTAG>[::::];      

where:


  • <TID> is the target identifier (optional).
  • <AID> indicates the entity in the node and must not be null.
  • <CTAG> is the correlation tag that correlates command and response messages (optional).

Step 11blank.gif Verify that there are no outstanding alarms or conditions on each node using the following commands:

 RTRV-COND-ALL:[<TID>]:[<AID>]:<CTAG>::[<TYPEREQ>][,,,];       

where:


  • <TID> is the target identifier (optional).
  • <AID> indicates the entity in the node and must not be null.
  • <CTAG> is the correlation tag that correlates command and response messages (optional).
  • <TYPEREQ> is the type of condition to be retrieved. A null value is equivalent to ALL.
 RTRV-ALM-ALL:[<TID>]:[<AID>]:<CTAG>::[<NTFCNCDE>],[<CONDITION>],[<SRVEFF>][,,,];       

where:


  • <TID> is the target identifier (optional).
  • <AID> indicates the entity in the node and must not be null.
  • <CTAG> is the correlation tag that correlates command and response messages (optional).
  • <NTFCNCDE> is a notification code. A null value is equivalent to ALL.
  • <CONDITION> is the type of alarm condition. A null value is equivalent to ALL.
  • <SRVEFF> is the effect on service caused by the alarm condition. A null value is equivalent to ALL.

Resolve all issues before proceeding.

 File:Note.gif  

Note You can activate only one node at a time; however, in a parallel upgrade you can begin activation of the next node as soon as the controller cards for the current node have rebooted successfully. If you wish to perform a parallel upgrade remotely, wait five minutes for the controller cards to complete the reboot.



Step 12blank.gif Starting at the node farthest from the GNE, type the APPLY command to activate the system software.

 APPLY:[<TID>]::<CTAG>[::<MEM_SW_TYPE>];       

where:


  • <TID> is the target identifier.
  • <CTAG> is the correlation tag that correlates command and response messages.
  • <MEM_SW_TYPE> indicates a memory switch action during the software upgrade; MEM_SW_TYPE is ACT for activate.

If the command is successful, the appropriate flash is selected and the ONS 15310-CTX-CL/CTX2500/ TCC2/TCC2P/TSC card reboots.


The following occurs:


After the common control cards finish resetting and all associated alarms clear, you can safely proceed to the next step. (If you are upgrading remotely and cannot see the nodes, wait for 5 minutes for the process to complete, then check to ensure that related alarms have cleared before proceeding.)


Step 13blank.gif Perform Step 12 for each node that will be upgraded, moving from the furthest node from the GNE toward the GNE itself, which should be activated last.

 File:Note.gif  

Note Note You might have to log in (Step 1 and Step 3) to each node again to activate the software (Step 12).



Step 14blank.gif After all nodes have been activated, log in using CTC or Telnet (Step 1and Step 3) and verify there are no outstanding alarms.


Step 15blank.gif Remove all BLSR lockouts using the following TL1 command:

 RLS-PROTNSW-<OCN_TYPE>:[<TID>]:<AID>:<CTAG>[::<DIRECTION>];       

where:


  • <TID> is the target identifier (optional).
  • <AID> indicates the entity in the node and must not be null.
  • <CTAG> is the correlation tag that correlates command and response messages (optional).
  • <DIRN> is the direction of transmission (transmit or receive). The possible values are RCV—receive direction only (default), TRMT—transmit direction only, or BTH—both transmit and receive directions.

For example:

 RLS-PROTNSW-OC48:PETALUMA:FAC-6-1:209::BTH;      

Stop. You have completed this procedure.
