Hi,

I have a cluster  ISE  ( two node ADMIN/MONITORING/POLICY and two node PSN ) on platform VMWARE . On the 4 VM is run RED HAT 6 , but for version 2.1 is require only red hat 7. The file for upgrade ISE ( ise-upgradebundle-1.3.x-and-1.4.x-to-2.1.0.x.x86_64.tar.gz )  contains the upgrade of the VM to the RH version7 ? It happened to you? that steps you followed?

I proceed with the upgrade with no problem?....... thanks!

ISE 2.1 (or any other version

ISE 2.1 (or any other version) includes the underlying OS and/or OS Upgrade needed. ISE, like many Cisco products is built using the ADE-OS package which includes a hardened version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), Oracle database etc all inclusive.

ISE in particular does not even allow access  to the OS and database under the ADE-OS shell. When TAC needs to access it for remote troubleshooting they generate a one time use access key that expires after 24 hours.

If you follow the upgrade guide, it should work perfectly for you. I have done several upgrade of ISE deployments to both version 2.0 and 2.1 without issue.

Cisco mentions the RHEL 7 version just so that you update your settings on the VMWare ESXi host accordingly.

Hi,

Hi,

Release 2.1 supports Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7.0.

Though it should work on RHEL 6. You  can change the Guest Operating System to Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7. To do this, you must power down the VM, change the Guest Operating System to RHEL 7, and power on the VM after the change.

Best practice is to be on RHEL 7 just to ensure better functionality
