Update Path/Procedure - ClearPass / AirWave / AP205

  • 1.  Update Path/Procedure - ClearPass / AirWave / AP205

    Posted Sep 18, 2017 09:45 AM


    we want to update our infrastructure to one of the latest versions, as the installed versions are outdated.

    Current Versions:

    ~12x AP 205 -> Aruba OS Version
    1x ClearPass Policy Manager on CP-VA-500 platform
    1x AirWave/AMP Version

    I cannot find any recommended upgrade procedure concerning the combination of these products.

    We would start with the CP-VA and AMP and update all antennas at the end and use the currently latest stable releases.
    Are these steps recommended?

    Thanks for your help.

    Sounds good.

    Always upgrade Airwave before you upgrade AP's, and please check the latest supported firmware level by Airwave, this is might not be latest release available.

    Thanks for your reply.


    What about ClearPass. Is there any recommended order on AirWave or ClearPass first?

    I attached the update options on the ClearPass Web Gui. I guess I can install and update the patches in the offered order?


    Current Version: 6.4.3

    Update1: ClearPass Cumulative Patch 7 for 6.4.0, 6.4.1, 6.4.2, 6.4.3, 6.4.4, 6.4.5 & 6.4.6

    Update2: ClearPass Cluster Upgrade Tool for 6.5.0 Upgrades.+

    Update3: ClearPass Upgrade version

    Update4: Cluster Upgrade Tool for 6.6.0 Upgrades - Version 2+

    Update5: ClearPass Upgrade version

    For the VM Disks, as i read a seconds disk has to be added twice the current size. Is it sufficent to add the disc once for all updates listed?



    many thanks
