ISSU update with Prime Infrastructure

Hi,

 

I experianse some issues with ISSU Update per Prime Infrastructure 3.6, may be you have some idea what the problem is?

 

I'm going to upgrade cat. 4500X from .SPA.03.08.06.E.152-4.E6 to 03.08.08.E.152-4.E8. First I distributed the new Version via PI 3.6 to the VSS "insert boot command" and "ISSU". In the second step I activated the image with ISSU option and logged all commands, issued by prime

PI3-6_insert-boot_activate-off_ISSU.PNGPI3-6_activate_ISSU.PNG

What prime does:

copy	bootflash:cat4500e-universalk9.SPA.03.08.08.E.152-4.E8.bin bootflash:cat4500e-universalk9.SPA.03.08.08.E.152-4.E8.bin slavebootflash:
terminal	length 0
dir	slavebootflash:cat4500e-universalk9.SPA.03.08.08.E.152-4.E8.bin
dir	bootflash:cat4500e-universalk9.SPA.03.08.08.E.152-4.E8.bin bootflash:cat4500e-universalk9.SPA.03.08.08.E.152-4.E8.bin
show	file systems
delete	bootflash:
archive	tar /xtract cat4500e-universalk9.SPA.03.08.08.E.152-4.E8.tar bootflash:
dir	/all bootflash:
copy	ftp://user:password@ip/cat4500e-universalk9.SPA.03.08.08.E.152-4.E8.tar bootflash:
dir	bootflash:cat4500e-universalk9.SPA.03.08.08.E.152-4.E8.tar
show	ip http server status
dir	slavebootflash:
dir	bootflash:
show	file systems
dir	/all bootflash:
dir	bootflash:cat4500e-universalk9.SPA.03.08.08.E.152-4.E8.bin
terminal	width 0
terminal	length 0
enable	

Thats it. both prime jobs are listed as successfull, for the second jop PI didn't issued a single command. And there isn't a single command about ISSU.

4500x VSS has no problems with ISSU (I performed ISSU upgrade manually, here the result)

show issu state detail
                               Slot = 1
                           RP State = Active
                         ISSU State = Init
                     Operating Mode = Stateful Switchover
                      Current Image = bootflash:cat4500e-universalk9.SPA.03.08.08.E.152-4.E8.bin
          Pre-ISSU (Original) Image = N/A
         Post-ISSU (Targeted) Image = N/A

                               Slot = 11
                           RP State = Standby
                         ISSU State = Init
                     Operating Mode = Stateful Switchover
                      Current Image = bootflash:cat4500e-universalk9.SPA.03.08.08.E.152-4.E8.bin
          Pre-ISSU (Original) Image = N/A
         Post-ISSU (Targeted) Image = N/A

Do somebody has an idea, what the problem is?

 

thanks

 

p.s. Prime is also not able to upgrade VSS without ISSU - in that case PI just reloads the standby switch and closes the job as successfull.

Re: ISSU update with Prime Infrastructure

I would exercise a significant level of caution when using PI to perform IOS upgrade.
ISSU &/or FSU/eFSU doesn't always work all the time. And when it doesn't, it can be an "interesting" event.

Re: ISSU update with Prime Infrastructure

So you suppose, it isn’t a good idea to use Cisco network management tool to manage Cisco network components. This is sad

 

actually i feel the same way, but my expectation is, that that expensive, almost proprietary, network management tool should be able to fulfill the basic software management task.
