Hi,

There are a couple of things to take into consideration with this upgrade:

_ NAM 5.0 does not support any upgrades from the NAM 3.x or NAM 4.x software releases on NAM devices.
You will need to do a fresh install of NAM 5.0. NAM
5.0 has a new architecture that will cause you to lose the configuration you
have currently set in your NAM. Cisco highly recommends that you back up
your current configuration in case you want to go back to a previous version
of NAM, where you can restore the saved configuration.

To back up your current configuration, from the NAM command line enter a
config upload command like the following:

config upload ftp://server/path

_ Also be aware that you need to have a minimum version for the NAM BIOS and Maintenance Image:

BIOS: 4.0-Rel 6.0.9 or later
Maint Image: 2.1(3)or later.

You can easily check that with the 'show ver' command in the NAM CLI.

_ You can only do a fresh install of NAM 5.0.

Please follow these steps to perform the upgrade:

_ Access your switch CLI and enter the following command:
' hw-module module reset cf:1'
_ Wait until the NAM boots up and access the CLI: 'session slot proc 1'
_ Upgrade the NAM with the following command: 'upgrade ftp-url --install'
_ Once the upgrade is completed exit the NAM CLI and from the switch enter the command:
'hw-module mod reset hdd:1'

I hope this helps.

Andres.
