I don't believe you can jump


I don't believe you can jump directly to prime 3.1 from 2.2
You need to upgrade to 3.0 then 3.1

I was running prime 3.0 already so only had to use PI-Upgrade-3.0.X_to_3.1.0.0.132.tar.gz file for the upgrade

Below link explains how to upgrade form 2.2 -> 3.0

Hello,

Hello,

What about the license ?

I have a base license and lifecycle on prime 2.2 and I installed 3.1

I want the licenses from prime 2.2 to be in the 3.1 and I noticed it was possible by moving the directory /opt/CSCOlumos/licenses from 2.2 to 3.1

How can you export this folder ?

Regards,

AL

If you are not too much

If you are not too much worried about historical data, then do a clean installation of PI 3.1 and then imports maps from old system to new system.

Then add the WLCs/devices onto new system.

That would be the safest approach.

I had some issues after 2.2 -> 3.0 upgrade and  had to rebuild 3.x from fresh. Refer below for more detail

Hi, Rasika.

Hi, Rasika.

As correctly. At first  add the controller in the Prime or import maps? APs will be added to the maps?

Hi Guys,

Just to add, the server

Just to add, the server requirements also increased which might make your current platform not feasible to use.  We are on 2.1 and basically purchased new hardware to match the specs for PI 3.x.  I also just spun up a new VM on PI 3.1 and moved the maps over because it's easier to do.

Re: Just to add, the server

these are the h/w requirements of PI 3.5. Specifically if you are upgrading from a EoL R-PI20-SW-K9 / PRIME-NCS-APL-K9

This is the upgrade replacement  - PI-UCSM5-APL-K9 

Cisco Prime Infrastructure UCS Physical HW Appliance (Gen 3)

Not sure if there is anything else required besides 3.x licenses
