Hi,

upgrade to PI 2.2. not in-line,  which means, you have to a scratch new installation over which you can restore the backup PI 2.1

If You Are Upgrading From Previous Releases of Prime Infrastructure

This version of Prime Infrastructure does not offer an in-place upgrade. To upgrade to the latest version, you must instead install this version of Prime Infrastructure as a virtual appliance on a fresh server, or order it pre-installed on a fresh physical appliance. You can then migrate your data from your old Prime Infrastructure installation to the new one, using an application backup from the previous installation.

If you are currently using one of the following versions of Prime Infrastructure, you can back up your existing data and then restore that data to a different server running Prime Infrastructure 2.2:

  • Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.1.2 (with the UBF patch)
  • Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.1.1 (with the UBF patch)
  • Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.1.0.0.87
  • Cisco Prime Infrastructure 1.4.2
  • Cisco Prime Infrastructure 1.4.1
  • Cisco Prime Infrastructure 1.4.0.45

If you are using a version earlier than 1.4.0.45 or 2.1.0.0.87, you will need to upgrade your server to version 2.1.0.0.87 (or version 1.4.0.45) before taking the backup.

If you are running multiple versions of Prime Infrastructure from which you want to migrate data, see If You Are Running Multiple Prime Infrastructure Versions.

Remember that backups can only be restored to a new Prime Infrastructure server that is the same size or bigger than your previous server. See FIPS Mode Installation Option.

To back up your data from a previous supported version of Prime Infrastructure, follow these steps:


Step 1 If you have not already done so: Set up a remote backup repository for the Prime Infrastructure version you are currently running. For details, see Using Remote Backup Repositories in the Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.2 Administrator Guide.

Step 2 Take an application backup of the Prime Infrastructure version you are currently running, and store the backup in the remote repository. For details, see Taking Application Backups in the Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.2 Administrator Guide.

Step 3 Verify the integrity of the backup as explained in Validating Your Backup.

Thanks Guys;

Did you guys think worth the upgrade?

 

 

It's most definitely worth the time to upgrade. There are more features, bug fixes and and the OS and database underneath it all are upgraded.

Be aware of the following if you choose to upgrade to 2.1.1:

https://supportforums.cisco.com/discussion/12432566/software-images-page-cisco-prime-infrastructure-22-broken-after-installing

https://tools.cisco.com/bugsearch/bug/CSCut07018

Just make sure you install the 2.1.1 maintenance release before installing device pack 1.

Hi Scott,

I got that part done....

 

thanks

Yes, that's the supported method for migration to 2.2.
