XIQ-SE and NAC Upgrade

XIQ-SE:

Upgrading ExtremeCloud IQ – Site Engine Engine Software
Upgrades to the ExtremeCloud IQ – Site Engine engine software are available on
the ExtremeCloud IQ – Site Engine 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 ExtremeCloud IQ – Site Engine
web page: http://extranet.extremenetworks.com/downloads/pages/NMS.aspx.
2. Enter your email address and password.
You will be on the ExtremeCloud IQ – Site Engine page.
3. Click on the Software tab and select a version of ExtremeCloud IQ – Site Engine.
4. Download the ExtremeCloud IQ – Site Engine virtual engine image from the
ExtremeCloud IQ – Site Engine Virtual Appliance (engine) section.
5. Use FTP, SCP, or a shared mount point, to copy the file to the ExtremeCloud IQ – Site
Engine virtual engine.
6. SSH to the engine.
7. Cd to the directory where you downloaded the upgrade file.
8. Change the permissions on the upgrade file by entering the following command:
chmod + x ./ExtremeCloudIQSiteEngine_<version>_64bit_
install.bin
9. Run the install program by entering the following command:
./ExtremeCloudIQSiteEngine_<version>_64bit_install.bin
The upgrade automatically begins.
The ExtremeCloud IQ – Site Engine Server are restarted automatically when the
upgrade is complete. Because your ExtremeCloud IQ – Site Engine engine
settings were migrated, you are not required to perform any configuration on
the engine following the upgrade.

NAC:

After upgrade verify that NAC Joins the Active Directory Domain.

cd /var/log

cat tag.log | grep “Joined”

Enforce after upgrading.

Check date and time and if necessary reset with /usr/postinstall/dateconfig command.

Upgrading XIQ-SE took about ten minutes to complete and further five minutes before I could login again.

Upgrading NAC took approximately ten minutes but allow for thirty minutes.

Recommended to take a snapshot of your VMs before upgrading.  Also, backup the XIQ-SE database to be super safe.
