Aironet snmp OID to do firmware upgrade

We have several aironet devices. We are an ISP, and we don't have wireless solution engine, but we have to upgrade firmware in several device:Bridges,acces points, workgroup bridges. I read an snmp OID which I can tell the device to upgrade firmware. Only I have to set the default file server, and maybe the default image name in the aironet devices. I can ' t find this document. Is there anybody help me?

Thanks in advance

Here is a URL that has pretty much all the useful information that you need for the Aironet devices. http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/wireless/index.htm

Re: Aironet snmp OID to do firmware upgrade

hello

" I read an snmp OID which I can tell the device to upgrade firmware. "

could you share the SNMP OID. I tried browing the MIB and I could not find the value.

I would set the ip addr of the TFTP server and the file name in the config file of the APs and just use the snmp oid to trigger them to upgrade

Re: Aironet snmp OID to do firmware upgrade

Hello !

MIB: awcVx

To load firmware from file server:

OID: awcFileXferCmdInvokeFileLoad value: 'start'

status for load:

OID: awcFileXferCmdStatusFileLoad

value:

0 = Operation completed successfully

(or has not taken place).

2 = At least one file was not found on

the file server.

12 = Insufficient memory to load all

files.

22 = No file specified, or invalid file

format.

35 = File format of at least one of the

files is not supported.

68 = Operation is still in progress.

Poll again later.

72 = Operation was started, but later was

canceled."

To save firmware to file server:

OID: awcFileXferCmdInvokeFileSave value: 'start'

status for save:

OID: awcFileXferCmdStatusFileSave

value:

0 = Operation completed successfully (or

has not taken place).

1 = Insufficient permission to save the

files.

2 = A directory specified for saving at

least one of the files was not found.

22 = No file specified, or invalid file

format.

68 = Operation is still in progress.

Poll again later.

72 = Operation was started, but later was

canceled."

I think it helps you. I tried these with AP1200 and it works!

Re: Aironet snmp OID to do firmware upgrade

Hello SZILARD,

Thank you for the reply. After you have sent me the above OIDs, I have tired to work with it. I am using ucd-snmp package. As a test I trried to up load the current image to the tftp server on a AP1200. I used the following command

snmpset 192.168.0.10 -c private awcFileXferCmdInvokeFileSave value: 'start'

The above command gives a error. Please suggest how should I use it ?

I am mainly interested in the procedure to load firmware in APs.

How do I specify the image file ?

Thank you.

Hello,

When I use the following command

\usr\bin>snmpset 192.168.0.10 -c private awcFileXferCmdInvokeFileSave value: 'start'

The error that shows up is

'start': Needs type and value

I have downloaded the MIB file from cisco and copied it to the main mib location used by ucd-snmp package.

Re: Aironet snmp OID to do firmware upgrade

Hi !

The syntax is :

snmpset ipaddr community snmp-object type value

for example:

snmpset 172.16.11.2 public .1.3.6.1.4.1.522.3.4.7.0 i 2

snmp-object: awcFileXferCmdInvokeFileSave (OID: 1.3.6.1.4.1.522.3.4.7)

i: integer type

integer type 2 =start

good luck
