Hey Victor, thanks for your response,

 

I am unsure the process of upgrading our current 105\114 cluster, i see that there are some URL fields on the firmware tab, are there Aruba sites i can put in to update to the specific firmware i want?


If you want to upgrade a mix-class IAP environment.

Here are the URLs you need in order to upgrade to the relevant firmware for that model.


http://images.arubanetworks.com/fwfiles/<firmware_name>

For example:

Download the firmware you want to upgrade to so you can copy/paste the filename If you want to upgrade to version 4.0.0.7 for Pegasus model APs (IAP-109)

http://images.arubanetworks.com/fwfiles/ArubaInstant_Pegasus_6.3.1.8-4.0.0.7_44641
Click on Maintenance -> Firmware and copy paste the URL above for IAP-109.

I just did a mixed-class environment for 205 and 215s and my upgrade URLs were

IAP-205
http://images.arubanetworks.com/fwfiles/ArubaInstant_Taurus_6.4.2.0-4.1.1.1_46936

IAP-215
http://images.arubanetworks.com/fwfiles/ArubaInstant_Centaurus_6.4.2.0-4.1.1.1_46936

Re: Updating Firmware on an IAP cluster with different models

Thanks so much PM, this makes alot of sense,

 

I noticed that for the second field, it Says URL for  RAP108/109 where as we have an IAP114, but i see they use the same firmware, Thanks so much for this info,

 

Do you happen to know if Firmwares classified as early Availability are accessible with the URLs youve provided as well?

 

Specifically i am looking at 6.4.2.0-4.1.1.0_46028

 

Thanks again, i will definitely be using these URLs

i have a couple of question :

 

  •  if the customer do not have a support access can he upgrade the Firmware using this method ?!
  •  if i have different IAP models in the cluster , i i have to upgrade them separately ?!

Thanks

Re: Updating Firmware on an IAP cluster with different models

I have never tried (without a support contract) but if he doesn't have a support contract he will not know the filename. So no, he most likely requires a support contract or you must wait until the image is available in the cloud

If you have different models, the webui of the IAP will ask you to input the path for each model

Re: Updating Firmware on an IAP cluster with different models

Good evening all,

I have a similar query so thought it is better to post it here than creating a new thread. We have 3x103 IAPs, 2x115 IAPs and 15x205IAPs. We would like to add 3x325IAPs into the cluster. We have the three firmwares (early deployment release) already, Pegasus for 103 and 115, Taurus for 205s and Hercules for 325s. My queries are

 

1. Do I have to disconnect 205s before running the firmware upgrade on 105s and 115s? If yes, when I plug in/introduce 205s back on, will Aruba Instant prompt me to direct the upgrade path for 205s? Or do I have to unplug 103s and 115s and plug in 205s and run an upgrade?

2. What if virtual controller is on 205, disconnecting 205s would mean disconnecting virtual controller too when upgrading 103/115s? Do we have to make 115 as virtual controller and upgrade and then make 205 virtual controller before upgrade?

3. When you mentioned the server path image.arubanetworks.com/fwfiles/ do I have to simply put the firmware file name or extension as well? 

 

Kindest regards

Please see here:  http://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Controller-less-WLANs/Do-I-have-to-upgrade-all-the-IAPs-of-same-class-in-the-same/ta-p/178928

 

1.  No

2.  Please see #1

3.  It will download the firmware for the other class of devices from the internet at devices.arubanetworks.com

Re: Updating Firmware on an IAP cluster with different models

Thanks Colin for a quick response. So in other words if I update our Virtual controller, all other devices in the cluster regardless of it being 103,115,205 or 325 (Pegasus, Taurus or Hercules), they'll get updated automatically from device.arubanetworks.com?

 

kindest regards

Re: Updating Firmware on an IAP cluster with different models

If you have internet access that allows it, yes.

Devices that are of the same class as the VC get the firmware from the VC.  Other devices are redirected to the cloud to get their firmware.
