ME3800X software upgrade

Hi everyone,

I need to do a software upgrade of a ME3800X since current version (12.???) doesn't support policing on priority queues. I want to go for 15.???. I can't find information on how to upgrade but I know its different from the simple copy image file and reload. Or is it? The support page only has hardware installation guides.

I also need to know If the upgrade implies any kind of "re-licencing" or are they totally independent.

Regards

Mario

Re: ME3800X software upgrade

I've just finished upgrading my ME3800X IOS from 12.X to 15.2(4)S1.  It's as simple as either you copy the BIN file across or you use the TAR file.

To use the TAR file, the command is:  archive download-sw tftp:///IOS_filename.tar

Your license will remain as it is and won't change.

Re: ME3800X software upgrade

Just tested the upgrade. worked flawlessly (although it took to long and got me shaking a bit).

I also found where is the information. It is all under chapter "Working with the Cisco IOS File System, Configuration Files, and Software Images" in the software configuration guides

Are you upgrading IOS on appliances straight out of a box?

Don't do that.

I'll show something really "funky" and make you look good.   If you have NOT put any configs on the ME-3800X, I recommend you look into ZeroTouch.

Check it out.

Glad to see you like it.

Now show it off to your boss and watch him go "WTF!".

In our demo, I had a director switch and about 6 switches fresh from a box.  Plugged everything in (console, ethernet links) and powered the new switches simultaneously.

Sure, the bootup process bored everyone else to tears but that was part of the demo.  Then they all saw the logs coming into the director and then things start to "move".  They were floored.

About 12 months later, Cisco SE came and was highlighting some stuff to impress our new manager and they mentioned about this.  And our small team blurted, "we got this working about  8 months ago".  Should've seen the look on everyone's face.  LOL
