Upgrading EMC

Upgrading Extreme Management Center Engine Software

Upgrades to the Extreme Management Center engine software are available on the Extreme Management Center (NetSight) web page.

Prior to performing an upgrade, you can create a snapshot of the engine that you can revert to in the event an upgrade fails. Refer to the vSphere client documentation for instructions on creating a snapshot.

1 On a system with an internet connection, go to the Extreme Management Center (NetSight) web page: http://extranet.extremenetworks.com/downloads/pages/NMS.aspx.

2 Enter your email address and password.

You will be on the Extreme Management Center page.

3 Click on the Software tab and select a version of Extreme Management Center.

4 Download the Extreme Management Center virtual engine image from the Extreme Management Center Virtual Appliance (engine) section. Choose the virtual appliance upgrade download option.

5 Use FTP, SCP, or a shared mount point, to copy the file to the Extreme Management Center virtual engine.

6 SSH to the engine.

7 Cd to the directory where you downloaded the file.

8 Change the permissions on the upgrade file by entering the following command:

chmod 755 NetSight_Suite_<version>_install.bin

9 Run the install program by entering the following command:

./NetSight_Suite_<version>_install.bin

The upgrade automatically begins.

The Extreme Management Center Server will be restarted automatically when the upgrade is complete.

Because your Extreme Management Center engine settings were migrated, you are not required to perform any configuration on the engine following the upgrade.
