I am planing to upgrade our redundent nexus 7010 having redundent sup1, currentely running 5.2 to 6.2.12.
Can any one share the procedure for upgrade plan via ISSU. Any detailed document will be good help :-)
is it advisable to do via ISSU or via normal procedure considering no downtime or minimum downtime but short change window.
See this link for the upgrade procedure:
If it was me I would err on the side of caution and ask for a short change window just in case something unforseen happens during the upgrade.
Hey thanks Sean,
I was trying to find upgrade path ffrom 5.1.3 to 6.2.x but it doesn't give details. Document shows upgrade path from 4.2 to 5.2 & from 5.2 to 6.0..
I feel i need to upgrade twice if i have to upgrade from 5.1.x to 6.2.x
something like 5.1.x ==> 5.2.x ==> 6.2.x
and also prior to 5.2 ISSU doesn't support parallel upgrade..
unfortunately not yet due to pending approval.. but i have plan to follow below approach after discussion with TAC:
Recommended upgrade path:
5.1(3) ==> 5.2(9)
since i have Sup-1.. i will be using below image for upgrade.
System & kickstart Images :
will share detail plan. only if it is successful :-)
I successfully upgraded from 5.1.1 --> 5.2.5 --> 6.2.2a --> 6.2.8a --> 6.2.12 on a pair of 7010s.
