This post is primarily asking if the instructions look correct? Has anyone had similar issues like this with Cisco Prime?
I have scheduled Cisco for assistance during an upgrade from 2.x to 2.2. The reason for the upgrade is that Prime sends a lot of alerts stating :
1) AP "name" disassociated from controller 10.0.0.1 and
2)AP "name" associated with controller "name" draws low power from Ethernet. Failure reason,
the AP draws 15.4 watts from Ethernet.
I'm listing the steps Cisco requests that I do in order for the upgrade to take place.
On the 2.1 server:
1-Create at least 2 backups locally as follows:
ncs status **to make sure the processes are up
2-Create a local repository:
3-Create both backups:
backup <BACKUP-NAME> repository <REPOSITORY-NAME> application NCS
repeat the same until you have 2 backups under the repository you just created
4-When the backups are created make sure they are under the repository:
Show repository <REPOSITORY-NAME>
5-A FTP server is totally required as both backups are required to be moved out of the existing server:
copy disk:<BACKUP-NAME> ftp:<IPADDRESS>
