Introduction

Steps to Upgrade the Mobility Services Engine Application on a Cisco Virtual or Physical Appliance

 

Solution

Download either the larger .tar (CISCO-MSE-L-K9-7-x-xxx-xxx-64bit-db.tar) or the smaller .bin.gz (CISCO-MSE-L-K9-x-x-xxx-xxx-64bit.bin.gz) file from Cisco.com.

 

  1. The larger file includes the Oracle database if your intention is to wipe the DB and start anew or this is a fresh install
  2. The smaller file is the executable to upgrade the application if the database is to be kept intact
  3. Login to the MSE as the root user then cd to the /opt/installers directory
  4. Ftp the file from an ftp server to that directory being sure to transfer in binary mode
  5. Stop the MSE services by issuing the service msed stop command
  6. Cd to the /opt/mse/uninstall directory then run ./uninstall or simply run /opt/mse/uninstall/uninstall.sh
  7. Here you will be prompted to keep the DB and license file(s) intact or no
  8. If you plan to wipe the existing DB, be sure to make a backup of the .lic file(s) in the /opt/mse/licensing directory
  9. Once the MSE application has been removed, cd to the /opt/installers directory then unpack the files using the steps noted below

               If .bin.bz then

                    a)      gunzip CISCO-MSE-L-K9-x-x-xxx-xxx-64bit.bin.gz  

                    b)      chmod +x CISCO-MSE-L-K9-x-x-xxx-xxx-64bit.bin

                If .tar then

                     a)      tar –xvf CISCO-MSE-L-K9-7-x-xxx-xxx-64bit-db.tar

                     b)      gunzip CISCO-MSE-L-K9-x-x-xxx-xxx-64bit.bin.gz

                     c)      chmod +x CISCO-MSE-L-K9-x-x-xxx-xxx-64bit.bin

 

Now the executables have been unpacked, all you need to do is go through the installation by executing

 

                     a)      ./CISCO-MSE-L-K9-x-x-xxx-xxx-64bit.bin

 

Note: If the Aeroscout tag engine is being used, you'll need to involve their technical support group to get the Aeroscout software and license(s) reinstalled

 

MSE Commands

Run this command in order to determine the status of MSE services:

 

[root@MSE ~]# getserverinfo

Run this command in order to start the context-aware engine for client tracking:

 

[root@MSE ~]# /etc/init.d/msed start

Run this command in order to determine the status of the context-aware engine for client tracking:

 

[root@MSE ~]# /etc/init.d/msed status

Run this command in order to stop the context-aware engine for client tracking:

 

[root@MSE ~]# /etc/init.d/msed stop

Run this command in order to perform diagnostics:

What is the future for the MSE?  I see they said CMX is the upgrade, but in the documentation they clearly state, not suitable for aWIPS functionallity. Meaning WIPS stops at version 8.0.150. We basically only used it for WIPS function. I can't really understand why CMX is seen as the upgrade path. Will the MSE become absolute?
