    Maybe you've wondered how to upgrade to the latest version of AirWave (aka AMP)?

     

    It's not too hard, you just need access to the shell of the server with root access and internet access from the server. (this can be done from a local file too, but I won't get into that now)

     

    SSH into the AirWave server using root and type: start_amp_upgrade

     

    The entire upgrade should look like this:

     

    root@localhost mercury]# start_amp_upgrade

    Enter desired AMP version: 8.0.6.3

    Directory not specified; using /root.

    Upgrade script AMP-8.0.6.3-amp_upgrade was not found in local cache.

    Upgrade package AMP-8.0.6.3-x86_64-cvs.tar.gz was not found in local cache.

    Preparing to connect to Aruba Support Center...

    Enter your Aruba Support Center username: emailaddress@arubanetworks.com

    Checking for any patches or modifications to the code

    This process may take a few minutes...

    No outstanding changes were found. Continuing with the upgrade.

    Upgrading AMP to version 8.0.6.3 from version 7.7.10...

    Detailed log will be written to /var/log/upgrade/AMP-8.0.6.3-upgrade.log

     

    STEP 1: Moving old version aside.

     

    STEP 2: Unpacking upgrade package.

     

    STEP 3: Checking for compatibility.

     

    STEP 4: Stopping AMP services.

     

    STEP 5: Installing upgrade.

    ***************************************************************

    Updated kernel packages that fix various security issues are now

    available for your OS. To upgrade, run the command below and

    reboot your system.

     

      cd /root/svn/mercury/src/x86_64/rpms/CentOS-6; rpm -Uvh kernel-2.6.32-504.1.3.el6.x86_64.rpm kernel-headers-2.6.32-504.1.3.el6.x86_64.rpm kernel-firmware-2.6.32-504.1.3.el6.noarch.rpm

     

    For more information refer to the security advisory:

    ***************************************************************

     

    STEP 6: Restarting AMP services.

    Great guide,This part is very importent: (It's not done via the automatic upgrade process - booting without this step will cause your amp not to start as need)

    run the command below and

    reboot your system.



    cd /root/svn/mercury/src/x86_64/rpms/CentOS-6; rpm -Uvh kernel-2.6.32-504.1.3.el6.x86_64.rpm kernel-headers-2.6.32-504.1.3.el6.x86_64.rpm kernel-firmware-2.6.32-504.1.3.el6.noarch.rpm
