Upgrading from Medium to Large Deployment

Hello,

Is there a documented process for upgrading a deployment from medium to large for version 2.1?

Many thanks

Re: Upgrading from Medium to Large Deployment

We have videos talking about Upgrades from 1.4 and 2.0 under Upgrades :

ISE 2.0 to 2.2 GUI Upgrade - YouTube

ISE 1.4 to 2.0 Upgrade - YouTube

Going from a Medium to a Large deployment is a Scaling exercise and not a software Upgrade.

Please refer to ISE 2.2 - Network Deployments in Cisco ISE which talks about the different deployment sizes.

I think what you are asking his how to migrate from PAN+MNT nodes to separate PAN & MNT nodes.

You will want to remove/uncheck the PAN or MNT role from the secondary PAN+MNT then add a new ISE node as a that role and allow it to synchronize.

You will need to do the same for the other roles that you want to split out.

Re: Upgrading from Medium to Large Deployment

Hi Thomas,

It is splitting the roles out so PAN+MNT.  Is this not a documented process as I want to introduce new hardware to ultimately take over the Primary roles the older hardware is doing for the existing PAN or MNT and make the new 3595 primary.  Will the licenses transfer successfully as part of the synchronisation or do I need to raise a licensing request?

If it is not documented because it is simple then fine, I thought I would check first.

Thanks for your help.

Re: Upgrading from Medium to Large Deployment

Then you will want to make your new nodes MnTs since the licensing needs to stay with your PANs.

Disable the secondary MnT.

Add the new MnT node as secondary, let it synchronize.

Make the new MnT node the Primary MnT.

Disable the old MnT node.

Add the new MnT node and let it synchronize.

Celebrate.
