Steps for upgrading Airwave, and Instant Controllers

Hi there, we have a AMP server running with version 8.0.9.2

 

I want to upgrade 8.2.6

 

Our Groups contains Instant Controllers, which run on Instant firmware 6.4.2.6

 

I want to know the risks if do take this step:

  • upgrade AMP diectly to 8.2.6
  • what happens with groups that contain Instant controllers running 6.4.2.6?

Wha tif we first upgrade all Isntant controllers to:

  • 6.5.x
  • and then after that we upgrade AMP to 8.2.6

We have appr. 100 Groups with Instant controllers, so we don't want to make a mistake..

What is your planned upgrade path for AirWave? I have found that upgrading to intermediate version 8.2.1.1 or 8.2.2.x has had good results for myself and never had issues. I wouldn't upgrade the Instants first to 6.5.x since this version is not supported in AirWave 8.0.x so you may encounter issues.

Re: Steps for upgrading Airwave, and Instant Controllers

Thanks for your reply. SO you are sayinh, we betterupgrade first to 8.2.2.x instead directly to 8.2.6?

 

Is Instant 6.4.2 accepted by Airwave 8.2.2.x? Does this not give problems about 'instant version policy' (policy match)?

According to the documentation, your InstantOS version is still supported in Airwave 8.2.2.x. If you read the AirWave installation guide, it will tell you the intermediate steps to take.

 

Supported Upgrades to AirWave 8.2.6

You can upgrade directly to AirWave 8.2.6 from the following software versions: 8.2.2, 8.2.2.1, 8.2.3, 8.2.3.1, 8.2.4, 8.2.4.1, 8.2.5, and 8.2.5.1. 

If you are running earlier versions of AirWave, upgrade to AirWave 8.2.2, before upgrading to 8.2.5.1.

Hi Chirstian,

It is not recommeneded to upgrade Airwave directly to 8.2.7 from 8.0.9 as you might encouter some issues.
You can follow the path 8.0.9.2 --> 8.2.2.1 --> 8.2.3.1 --> 8.2.7

Vishnu
