Re: procedure to upgrade ios in Cisco 9407 running SVL Chassis

Thank for your reply,

i will check that , regarding to below :

 

Prerequisites for Performing ISSU :

The following prerequisites apply for performing ISSU:

• The active switch must have access to the new IOS XE image or pre-load it into flash. ( already uploaded new image in switch )

• The switch must be running in install mode.( where to the switch in Install Mode  because show ver not showing in which mode in show licenses showing evaluation mode)

• Non-Stop Forwarding(NSF)must be enabled :

Device(config)#redundancy

Device(config-red)#modesso

Device(config-red)#end

Device#

Please explain

Re: procedure to upgrade ios in Cisco 9407 running SVL Chassis

Hello kick534,

SSO = Stateful Switchover is the name of the most efficient redundancy protocol spoken by the two supervisors between them over the SVL bundle.

SSO supports only two supervisors ( a pair) and allows to have an hot standby supervisor: the standby supervisor can take the role of active supervisor in a very short time as it is synchronized with the current active on the following aspects:

- configuration file

- L2 control protocols STP, VTP and so on

- L3 routing table

- L3 routing protocols active and what neighbors are alive for each protocol (which BGP sessions are alive for BGP)

- CAM table contents

- ARP table contents

- CEF adjacency table

- CEF FIB table

- state of linecards and state of ports in each linecard.

 

SSO is required to perform an In Service Software upgrade ISSU.

So SSO must be enabled and operational

You can check with

show redundancy

 

NSF = Non Stop Forwarding is a feature that uses SSO and attempts to perform a supervisor switchover with minimal loss of user traffic.

Actually the NSF uses different techniques called graceful restart that have different implementations in routing protocols like OSPF, EIGRP and BGP to hide the switchover from the network.

The NSF / graceful restart capable device have two supervisors and a forwarding plane indipendent from supervisors.

The OSPF/EIGRP neighbors wil act as NSF aware helpers hiding the supervisor swithcover from the rest of the network.

For OSPF the device performing switchover is considered as alive for a period of time (the grace period for example 180 seconds) even if after the sending of the special graceful restart LSA no OSPF hellos are received.

Traffic can be routed to the device under switchover because of indipendency of the forwarding plane (CEF table stored on linecards for example).

 

Both SSO and NSF are required to perform an ISSU.

In addition to this the current IOS XE and the target IOS XE image must be "near" enough that do not require firmware upgrade on linecards or ROMMON update.

 

Edit:

from your show version we see the following line:

>> System image file is "bootflash:packages.conf"

 

So your current IOS XE is not using a single .bin file as we were used with IOS, but it using packages that are listed in the packages.conf file.

So to make a backup of your current IOS XE installation you should copy to a TFTP server the following files:

52 27034568 Apr 19 2019 10:40:00.0000000000 +00:00 cat9k-cc_srdriver.16.09.02.SPA.pkg

61 9152 Apr 19 2019 10:40:00.0000000000 +00:00 cat9k-wlc.16.09.02.SPA.pkg
62 7554 Apr 19 2019 10:40:16.0000000000 +00:00 packages.conf

 

I would also copy to TFTP server the vlan.dat file for safety.

 

Now, the so called Install mode refers on how IOS XE is installed used in your switch. It is not related to the licenses.

 

Edit2:

IOS XE can be installed in two ways: bundle mode and install mode.

the bundle mode uses a single .bin file, the install mode uses the packages file and the packages.conf provisioning file.

for reference see the following link

https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/switches/lan/catalyst3850/software/release/3se/system_management/configuration_guide/b_sm_3se_3850_cg/b_sm_3se_3850_cg_chapter_010100.html

 

Your switch is already running in install mode.

Perform all the checks with

show redundancy

show redundancy states

show cef states

 

to verify SSO and NSF are operational.

Then you can follow the ISSU procedure on pag. 43.

 

IMPORTANT WARNING:

On pag 44 of the document provided by BB it says ISSU is supported over SVL pair. You can use two different procedures to perform ISSU.

 

A limitation is that you cannot perform ISSU from 16.9.x to 16.10.x

 

Hope to help

Giuseppe
