When upgrading the fabric using policy upgrade,Policy Manager logs on the APIC's can be checked to see the status of the upgrade. One thing to note is that the upgrade logs for different nodes can be spread across the APIC's in a random order. Policy Manager on all APIC's may have to be checked to account for all the nodes in the fabric. The policy upgrade logs are saved in svc_ifc_policymgr.bin.log. The latest logs are saved in the log file that does not have a number. Below are some logs to check during the upgrade, only relevant output is shown.
admin@apic1:~> cd /var/log/dme/log admin@apic1:log> pwd /var/log/dme/log
The below logs show the messages exchanged between Policy Manager on APIC and Policy Element for node 202 and also indicates the firmware upgrade is in progress for a policy name ''switch even'
