Our RSP5 came with 6.5.2 I attempted to upgrade to 7.1.1. We have RSP880s running Classic XR so upgrading those is not a problem as I am fairly familiar with the process of classic. x64 is a totally new animal for me.
So I tried to upgrade the RSP5 by installing the ISO and tar image with the following command
install add source tftp://10.1.1.4/ asr9k-mini-x64-7.1.1.iso ASR9K-x64-iosxr-px-k9-7.1.1.tar
Once it was complete I verified by issuing the following commands
show install repository | i mini
Verified that asr9k-mini-x64-7.1.1 was indeed in my directory
Issued the command
install extract asr9k-mini-x64-7.1.1
Verified the image was extracted by issuing
show install repository | i xr-
Verified that asr9k-xr-7.1.1 was in the directory
show install repository | i sys
confirmed by sysadmin file was there
Then I proceeded with
install prepare issu asr9k-xr-7.1.1
Then I got an error saying not enough redundancy (forgot the rest) messge
Then I just decided to just activate by issuing
install activiate asr9k-xr-7.1.1
Then an error popped up saying
asr9k-xr-7.1.1_x64 does not exist
I have verified that asr9k-xr-7.1.1 was indeed in my directory but I kept getting error stating that the file did not exist.
Am I missing a step here?
Any input will be greatly appreciate.
Thank you. A CCIE friend helped me. He had a hard time installing the image as well, for some reason this RSP was acting strange but ultimately took the upgrade after 6 tries.
