Upgrade process ACS

Hello friends, I want to upgrade a ACS 5.0 to a 5.1 and then to the 5.2 version but in the upgrading instructions there's a command line that I don't get, it is:

acs patch install patch-name.tar.gpg repository repository-name

I don´t know what is this repository-name and if it is a repository that I need to create. I can download the files for the installation (The patch and the ADE upgrade) but I don't know how to  place them into the ACS appliance ( if that's the case).

Thanks in advance.

Atte. Jonás Díaz

Hi Jonas,

type :

-conf t

- repository JonasRepo

-url ftp://x.y.z.a/

-user password plain

then you can install the patch and use "JonasRepo" as repository name. So you don't have to download the patches to the ACS but just configure ACS to know where they are. You're not forced to do FTP, you can use the question mark after "url" to see the different possibilities.

Hope this helps,

Nicolas

Repository is basically a remote location where you can place all the patch files, upgrade images, and even download the ACS logs.

Instead of copying files to/from the ACS machine itself, this is kind of an external drive where you store all these files.

And for the upgrade process for example, you need to specify what repository to use and which file to read from it.

When you type the command "acs patch install patch-name.tar.gpg repository repository-name", the acs will do everything automatically.

It will connect to the remote machine defined by the repository and download the specified filename. Then will initiate the upgrade process.

HTH,

Tiago
