Change ACNS to WAAS in NME-WAE-502-k9

Answered Question
Feb 9th, 2012

Hi,

Is it possible to migrate ACNS to WAAS in NME-WAE-502-K9? I only find this document http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/app_ntwk_services/waas/waas/v413/aow/guide/acnsvbguide.html and it is said, the image only supports WAE. If this possible, could you provide the guidance to migrate it? Thanks

I have this problem too.

Hi,

Sorry, I forgot to mention that you need to the procedure using a WAAS 4.0 software image. The kernel on 4.1 was changed, so the migration fails if you use that one.

Once the device has been migrated to WAAS, you can upgrade it normally to the version you prefer.

Hi,

The procedure is the same ones as to reinstall the software. It's described in the "Maintaining your WAAS system" section of the documentation.

To make it easier, here are the steps:

To reinstall the system software on an NME-WAE network module installed in a Cisco access router, follow these steps:

Step 1 Log in to the Cisco router in which the NME-WAE module is installed, and reload the NME-WAE module:

router-2851> enable

router-2851# service-module integrated-Service-Engine 1/0 reload

Step 2 Immediately open a session on the module:

router-2851# service-module integrated-Service-Engine 1/0 session

Step 3 While the module is reloading, you will see the following option during boot phase 3. Enter *** as instructed:

[BOOT-PHASE3]: enter `***' for rescue image: ***

Step 4 The  rescue image dialog appears. The following example demonstrates how to  interact with the rescue dialog (user input is denoted by entries in  bold typeface):

This is the rescue image.  The purpose of this software is to let

you install a new system image onto your system's boot flash

device.  This software has been invoked either manually

(if you entered `***' to the bootloader prompt) or has been

invoked by the bootloader if it discovered that your system image

in flash had been corrupted.

To download an image from network, this software will request

the following information from you:

    - which network interface to use

    - IP address and netmask for the selected interface

    - default gateway IP address

    - FTP server IP address

    - username and password on FTP server

    - path to system image on server

Please enter an interface from the following list:

   0: GigabitEthernet 1/0

   1: GigabitEthernet 2/0

enter choice: 0

Using interface GigabitEthernet 1/0

Please enter the local IP address to use for this interface:

[Enter IP Address]: 10.1.13.2

Please enter the netmask for this interface:

[Enter Netmask]: 255.255.255.240

Please enter the IP address for the default gateway:

[Enter Gateway IP Address]: 10.1.13.1

Please enter the IP address for the FTP server where you wish

to obtain the new system image:

[Enter Server IP Address]: 10.107.193.240

Please enter your username on the FTP server (or 'anonymous'):

[Enter Username on server (e.g. anonymous)]: username

Please enter the password for username 'username' on FTP server: 

Please enter the directory containing the image file on the FTP server:

[Enter Directory on server (e.g. /)]: /

Please enter the file name of the system image file on the FTP server:

[Enter Filename on server]: WAAS-4.4.1.10-K9.sysimg

Here is the configuration you have entered:

Current config:

          IP Address: 10.1.13.2

             Netmask: 255.255.255.240

     Gateway Address: 10.1.13.1

      Server Address: 10.107.193.240

            Username: username

            Password: *********

     Image directory: /

      Image filename: WAAS-4.4.1.10-K9.sysimg

Attempting download...

Downloaded 15821824 byte image file

A new system image has been downloaded.

You should write it to flash at this time.

Please enter 'yes' below to indicate that this is what you want to do:

[Enter confirmation ('yes' or 'no')]: yes

Ok, writing new image to flash

.................................................................................. done.

Finished writing image to flash.

Enter 'reboot' to reboot, or 'again' to download and install a new image:

[Enter reboot confirmation ('reboot' or 'again')]: reboot

Restarting system.

Step 5 After the module reboots, install the .bin image from an HTTP server:

NM-WAE-1# copy http install 10.77.156.3 /waas WAAS-4.4.1.10-k9.bin

Step 6 Reload the module:

NM-WAE-1# reload

After the module reboots, it is running the newly installed WAAS software.

I hope this helps

Daniel
