"Hot" upgrade of ACS 5.0 to 5.1 possible?

Unanswered Question
Jun 25th, 2010

Hi,


If you have an ACS deployment consisting of 2 or more appliances is it possible to perform a hot upgrade from V5.0 to V5.1.  Following the upgrade guide at  http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/net_mgmt/cisco_secure_access_control_system/5.1/installation/guide/csacs_upg.html it looks like you are switching the primary and secondary around so one server is able to handle requests.  Has anyone tried it?


Thanks

......You posted the same URL that I did.  I am also not asking how to perform the upgrade as it is cleary documented in the link I posted.  Your post was not helpful at all.  Actually Ganesh none of your posts are helpfull, however you are quite profficient at copying and pasting URL links and just generally being a waste of space by cluttering up these forums.  Keep up the good work!


Thanks

There are a couple patches that need to be installed before upgrading to 5.1


1) ACS 5.0 patch 9. On CCO: 5-0-0-21-9.tar.gpg

2) ADE-OS version 1.2    /// upgrades operating system version. On CCO: ACS_5.0.0.21_ADE_OS_1.2_upgrade.tar.gpg


Both these steps use the following command "acs patch install patch-name.tar.gpg repository repository-name "


Then can perform the upgrade to 5.1 using following command:


application upgrade application-bundle remote-repository-name

All the patches/upgrade bundles can be downloaded from CCO. 5.1 package is called "ACS_5.1.0.44.tar.gz"


More detailed documentation is at:

Hope to Help !!
