I recently migrated from the WLSE appliance to WCS Version 22.214.171.124 as well as Redhat Linux 4.0 (via the 2 CD's that were shipped). I would like to upgrade my WCS to the latest version (7.0), with the following upgrade path in mind:
My question is do I need to upgrade my Redhat to 5.0 Enterprise version as well in order to support this upgrade? My understanding is that the WLSE appliance is no longer an appliance and is now a full fledge WCS SERVER, in which case I do need to upgrade Redhat. If so, is Redhat 5.0 free to upgrade?
Yes, in order to run WCS versions beyond 4.2, you'll need a Red Hat upgrade on a converted WLSE. Because the conversion process brought Red Hat provided by Cisco, the converted WLSE is indeed an appliance (it's just not called that) and Cisco does indeed provide the Red Hat upgrade. You can open a service request with TAC and they'll post the ISO image of the Red Hat upgrade CD for you, or give me your Cisco.com ID and I'll post it for you without an SR.
As for your proposed upgrade path, if this was *my* WCS installation to address, I'd go:
126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52 then run Data Cleanup
184.108.40.206 to 220.127.116.11
18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.124
Long and short, avoiding some bugs and letting 4.2 executables clean a 4.2 database before exiting the train, then bypassing 5.* altogether.
I've done the posting; it takes about half an hour for the email to get generated and in your box.
This is an ISO of the upgrade to Red Hat 5 tailored for the converted WLSE. When you burn it, burn it on the slowest speed possible (remember the WLSE hardware's a few years old and the CDROM drive doesn't always respond well to high burn speed CDs.) It will only install on a converted WLSE that hasn't been modified from the way it was back when it was a WLSE.
Hi Rollin - I'm currently trying to do the same thing for a customer so that I can export their WCS licence file off of the WLSE and migrate them onto to a VMWare NCS. Could you please post me the link, my Cisco ID is barryfowles
