Upgrading

Hello all,

I have a 650 controller and several AP-105.

My controller is running 5.0.2.0 and I want to upgrade to 6.0.1.2 and I have few questions.


Can I upgrade directly to 6.0.1.2 ?


To upgrade AP os, do I need to download something else or latest version is included in the controller OS file ?


I see on the 650 controller two paritions (0 and 1). I suppose the right thing to do is to upgrade one parition to latest and keep the other one as a backup ?


If I upgrade the OS, I suppose the configuration will be modified because of old commands removed or new commands added. If I going back to old OS version, I will need to upload my old config ? Or configs are stored on each partition ?

I'm new to aruba and a little lost...

thanks !

Re: Upgrading

Hi Vincent,

You should check out the release notes for ArubaOS 6 on Aruba's support site. Most of your questions are answered there. In short:

Yes, you can upgrade directly to 6.0.1.2. The APs upgrade themselves automatically from the controller. You should upload the new OS image to the non-boot partition (show image version on the CLI). Save the current config - either to flash or a TFTP server - before upgrading and if you run into problems you can rollback to the old code and config. The upgrade should go smoothly; the changes from ArubaOS 5 -> ArubaOS 6 are not that drastic.

Re: Upgrading

Ok I just did the upgrade. Everythig went well. No error but...I have a problem.


My APs aren't detected anymore in my controller. I looked at the logs via console port on APs, no error. They boot normally, get their IP adresses, etc.

any idea ? I rebooted the controller on my old version 5 and everything works.

How do the access points discover the controller, via DHCP, DNS???

Re: Upgrading

Okay. See what is happening on the controller by typing "show log system 50". Also type "show datapath session table" to see if any of the access point traffic is hitting the controller. Also type "show controller-ip" to see what IP address the APs should be hitting the controller on.

second command, I see a lot of IPs but not related to my wireless networks. It's IP from my wired networks probably hitting the controller.

third command is the right IP of my controller


edit : from the controller, I can ping AP

Re: Upgrading

Do a 'show datapath session table to see if the AP is even contacting the controller.
