Question

 How to upgrade router running Cisco IOS-XE SD-WAN software? 

Answer

 Procedure is different from ordinary IOS-XE software, but in most cases can be done via vManage controller in the same way as for vEdge routers and described in the following article: Software Installation and Upgrade for vEdge Routers

Although if CLI upgrade required, then this document should be helpful. In general this procedure is more like on vEdge routers, rather than on ordinary IOS-XE routers.

 

1. Download IOS-XE SD-WAN image for your device on https://software.cisco.com 

2. Upload image to the device (e.g. with help of scp):

User-PC:Downloads User$ scp c1100-ucmk9.16.10.1.SPA.bin admin@10.48.87.244:/c1100-ucmk9.16.10.1.SPA.bin
Password: 
c1100-ucmk9.16.10.1.SPA.bin                                                                                                                                                               100%  407MB 488.7KB/s   14:12    
Connection to 10.48.87.244 closed by remote host.
User-PC:Downloads User$ 

3. install new software:

Router#request platform software sdwan software install bootflash:c1100-ucmk9.16.10.1.SPA.bin 

4. check that software was installed properly:

Router#show sdwan software 
VERSION  ACTIVE  DEFAULT  PREVIOUS  CONFIRMED  TIMESTAMP                  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
16.10.1  false   false    false     -          2019-01-16T13:22:47-00:00  
16.9.3   true    true     true      auto       2018-12-29T15:15:55-00:00  

5. activate software:

Router#request platform software sdwan software activate 16.10.1 

System will be reloaded automatically once completed.

6. Once device is reloaded, we can check that new version was activated:

Router#sh ver | i IOS.*Version
Cisco IOS XE Software, Version 16.10.1
Cisco IOS Software [], ISR Software (ARMV8EB_LINUX_IOSD-UCMK9-M), Version 16.10.1, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)
Router#show sdwan software    
VERSION  ACTIVE  DEFAULT  PREVIOUS  CONFIRMED  TIMESTAMP                  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
16.10.1  true    false    false     auto       2019-01-16T13:56:38-00:00  
16.9.3   false   true     true      auto       2019-01-16T13:56:39-00:00  

7. Optionally we can set new version as default:

Router#request platform software sdwan software set-default 16.10.1
Router#show sdwan software                                         
VERSION  ACTIVE  DEFAULT  PREVIOUS  CONFIRMED  TIMESTAMP                  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
16.10.1  true    true     false     auto       2019-01-16T13:56:38-00:00  
16.9.3   false   false    true      auto       2019-01-16T13:56:39-00:00 

It will make sure that new version is preserved if software reset required (request platform software sdwan software reset)
