Junos Space Upgrade - 15.1 - 18.2

‎07-03-2018 06:37 PM

Hi,

 

we have JA2500 space node running old software version 15.1 and I needs to upgarde is to latest space version 18.2 and I know its step by step process to reach 18.2.

 

How I can proceed with this upgrade , should I go through applications and start upgrading from Network Management Platform and then security director and then Logging.

 

Can we do this to upgarde as globally which can also upgrade these three applications instead going through one by one upgrading applications.

Hi Toufiq,

 

From 15.1, you first need to go on 15.2R2 (You will have to upgrade your SD application on 15.2) and then from 15.2 to 16.1, it is a different upgrade as mentioned in below doc.

 

https://www.juniper.net/documentation/en_US/junos-space16.1/platform/topics/task/installation/junos-...

 

Once you are on 16.1, you will again have to upgrade your SD application to compatible release.

Junos Space Application Compatibility - Check this before upgrading: https://kb.juniper.net/InfoCenter/index?page=content&id=KB27572

 

16.1 > 17.1 > 18.2 along with its applications.

 

Always check for compatibility in release notes for respective application releases.

If this worked for you please flag my post as an "Accepted Solution" so others can benefit.

Hi, Thanks for your reply. So when u say SD applications its under Administration > Applications > Network Management Platform and Security director and logging. so 15.1 to 15.2 through applications 15.2 - 16.1 Full upgrade as per document 16.1 - 16.2 appliations 16.2.- 17.1 Full upgrade 17.1-17.2 applications 17.2 - 18.1 Full upgrade So when we do from 15.1 to 15.2 what software needs to upload and upgrade, I downloaded 15.2R2.image files so I can use this for Network Management application upgrade and same for Security director and logging one by one

Yes, SD = Security Director, it will install/upgrade its sub-applications listed below.

Security Director:Logging and Reporting

NSM Migration

Log Director

Application Visibility

 

First, you will have to upgrade Network Management application to 15.2R2 using below link:

Junos Space Platform Upgrade   (https://www.juniper.net/support/downloads/?p=space)

Upgrading Junos Space Network Management Platform:  https://www.juniper.net/documentation/en_US/junos-space15.2/platform/topics/task/installation/junos-...

 

And then for Security Director 15.2R2 upgrade : Security Director (https://www.juniper.net/support/downloads/?p=spacesecdir)

So when I upgrade Network Management Application from 15.1 to 15.2R2 it stays on below message and not progressing further. Is there any step I am missing. I am upgrading to 15.2R2.img

Hi,

 

How I can perform Space Data Backup mentioned in upgrade document.

So this backup means all the firewall rules and NAT rules addresses and services backing up.

 

Or the DB Backup like My SQL and other services backup.

 

From Document I cant find the directory below directories, I can go till    cd /var/cache/  but no space-backup-restore inside

 

/var/cache/space-backup-restore directory:

cd /var/cache/space-backup-restore

First you need to run backup script mentioned in Downloading and Installing the Junos Space Platform 15.2R2 Patch : https://www.juniper.net/documentation/en_US/junos-space16.1/platform/topics/task/installation/junos-... Step 8: sh patchme.sh

 

Then only you can see /var/cache/space-backup-restore

 

This backup will contain all space data.

Thanks,

 

Actually  I already run that patch and got below response.

 

[root@space-0319032016000021 15.2R2-hotpatch-v11]# sh patchme.sh
Patch 15.2R2-hotpatch-v11 already installed.
15.2R2-hotpatch-v11
PR1174945(Top Level Job Status shows failure when sub-jobs are still in progress                                     )
PR1173658(EMS-NBI - 1 - Critical - REST API - Managed-Element query contains inc                                     orrect equipment holders reference)

 

 

But when I go inside  as below , I cant see backup-restore file under cache as below.

 

[root@space-0319032016000021 cache]# pwd
/var/cache
[root@space-0319032016000021 cache]# ls

You are running a wrong patch, the one you ran is hot patch, you should run 15.2R2.2-SpaceUpgradeBackup.tgz.

Going into maintenance mode is normal as it stop jboss service, you can exit from maintenance mode after your backup is complete.

Now I can see its coming up.

 

So Can I do WinScp from space to my local computer like simpe copy and paste files from space to my computer through WINScp as I dont have FTP server and not on the site to connect USB.

Yes, while backup give the location of your junos space server itself (2.Remote SCP server)and once the backup is complete using winscp copy backup file to your local machine.

 

For 16.1 upgrade, you will have to re-image the junos space box using USB and while deployment you will get an option to restore this 15.2R2 backup, refer 16.1 upgrade doc above.

You can absolutely take the backup via SCP. On a JA-2500, you can also do so via USB. I have some rough notes on the upgrade process over yonder: https://yorickdowne.wordpress.com/2017/08/05/junos-space-upgrade-to-16-1r2/

That's absolutely meant to be used with Juniper's upgrade instructions, not as a standalone guide.

Edit: Be aware that as of 7-11-2018, Security Director 18.2R1 has not been released. Once you upgrade all the way to SPACE 18.2, you'll need Security Director 18.2 as well. Security Director 18.1R2 is not supported on SPACE 18.2.

Hi,

 

Thanks for the update otherwise I was going to 18.2 release.

 

Now I will upgrade till 17.2 only and wait for 18.2 security director to be released and then will move to 18.2 release.
