NCS to PI Upgrade

I have been trying to follow this document on upgrading from NCS to PI 1.3

I have previously done this upgrade as described with a different server however in this case, after uploading the patch to NCS I am getting the following error:

NCS-SERVER/admin# patch install ncs_1_1_1_24-Update.13.4.tar.gz localftp

Save the current ADE-OS running configuration? (yes/no) [yes] ?

Generating configuration...

Saved the ADE-OS running configuration to startup successfully

Initiating Application Patch installation...

Error: not well-formed (invalid token) at line 7

% Manifest file is invalid

I have tried a fresh install of the NCS Virtual Appliance "NCS-VA-" and have verified the MD5 for the ncs_1_1_1_24-Update.13.4.tar.gz patch matches.

Has anyone encountered this issue and have a fix?

Re: NCS to PI Upgrade

After you uploaded the file, did you verify that it was uploaded? You also did shut down the NCS service?

Re: NCS to PI Upgrade

Hi Scott,

I get the same error regardless of wether NCS is started or stopped and while I can't find a command to verify the MD5 of the file once its uploaded to the NCS I have verified the file is there:

ADM-PRM-01/admin# show repository localftp


Also if I try and change the name of the file to something which isn't in the localftp repository I get a different error:

% Local file not found

Re: NCS to PI Upgrade

Thanks for that. After reading that thread it looks like a mismatch, I downloaded Firezilla Portable and uploaded the file again and now its working! Lesson learned, never trust Microsoft FTP client.
