Use the proceed option to upgrade Cisco ISE using the upgrade bundle you extracted with the prepare option. You can use this option after preparing an upgrade bundle instead of using the application upgrade < ise-upgradebundle-1.2-to-1.2.1.xxx.i386.tar.gz > < remote-repository>.
1. If upgrade is successful, this option removes the upgrade bundle.
2. If upgrade fails for any reason, this option retains the upgrade bundle.
3. If you issue the application upgrade command when another application upgrade operation is in progress, you will see the following warning message:
An existing application install, remove, or upgrade is in progress. Try again shortly.
In the upgrade guide for 1.2 distributed deployments it says to upgrade the secondary admin node first. I know this isn't for 1.2.1 but I was told to follow this same method. So should I go with the method in the guide or follow yours?
When upgrading to Cisco ISE, Release 1.2, first upgrade the secondary Administration node to Release 1.2. For example, if you have a deployment set up as shown in Figure 2, with one primary Administration node (Node A), one secondary Administration node (Node B), one Inline Posture node (IPN) (Node C), and four Policy Service nodes (PSNs) (Node D, Node E, Node F, and Node G), one primary Monitoring node ( Node H), and one secondary Monitoring node (Node I), you can proceed with the following upgrade procedure
I followed the guide that I referenced for distributed deployments. This method worked great!! While your method does work as you said. I think by upgrading the psns first then you would lose logging as there wouldn't be any mnt nodes that are on the same version. At least until you upgrade one of the mnt nodes. The order I did was
1) Secondary Admin
2) Primary MNT
5) Secondary MNT
6) Primary Admin (which will be secondary in this new deployment)
Then login directly to the the new secondary admin and promote it back to its original persona. Primary admin
