HI Experts,

We are planning to upgrade AP 9115AXI Light Weight AP software upgrade from 8.10.130.0 to 15.3.3-JPR series. Is it possible to upgrade to the destined version directly or is there any intermediate version involved?

Not finding any relevant documents. can you guide here please ?

Also if there is any reference URL for the commands, that would be beneficial

Correct it is not possible to upgrade the software from USB.

The USB port is for providing external USB power and IOT use.

Thanks marc, any protocol you suggest for the manual upgrade TFTP,ftp or sftp

 

 - sftp will be faster , you may also try https , (if available) ,

Marc,

One more clarification, there is an USB port in this AP can we use this port for firmware upgrade by connecting the thumb/pen drive ?

 

Can you help here please

15.3(3)JPR = Cisco IOS XE 17.13.1 as per https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/wireless/compatibility/matrix/compatibility-matrix.html
Therefore you should refer to the 17.13 release notes: https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/wireless/controller/9800/17-13/release-notes/rn-17-13-9800.html#Cisco_Concept.dita_59a2987f-2633-4630-8c7b-a8e8aecdeaf7
From table 10 you see Deployments Without 9130 or 9124 can upgrade from 8.9.x or any version prior to 8.10.171.0 directly to 17.13.x.

As @marce1000 says sftp will always be faster than TFTP.  The command is:
archive download-sw /force-reload <download url>
or archive download-sw /reload <download url>

Thanks Rick will go through the doc and it is definitely helpful..  can you suggest the sftp & tftp tool we should consider for this manual upgrade.

Hi Ric,

No!

9115AXI#archive download-sw /reload ?
WORD URL of AP image <tftp|sftp>://<server_ip>/<file_path>

Thanks Rich.. you mean we can't upgrade the AP via USB .. is my understanding correct. Then may I know the purpose of the USB 

Correct it is not possible to upgrade the software from USB.

The USB port is for providing external USB power and IOT use.
