Before you use this command to activate a software image, read the release notes to identify the licensing requirement for the image. If the image requires a license, make sure the device has a valid license installed for the image.

An image runs in memory immediately after it is activated. For an activated image to run after a reboot, you must commit the software change by using the install commit command.

If you specify a subordinate member for the command, the command copies the images to the subordinate member automatically.

At reboot, a subordinate device automatically synchronizes the master device's configuration and status data. You must wait for the synchronization to complete before using the install activate command on the subordinate device. To check the synchronization progress, use the display device command. The synchronization is completed when all member devices are in normal state.

You can install up to 32 .bin files on the device, including one boot image file, one system image file, and up to 30 feature or patch image files.

Examples

# Identify the ISSU method for feature upgrade with ssh2.bin on subordinate member 2 and the upgrade impact on the device.

<Sysname> install activate feature flash:/ssh2.bin slot 2 test

Parameters

ipe-filename: Specifies the name of an .ipe file in the root directory of a storage medium on the master, in the storage-medium:/base-filename.ipe format. It can be a case-insensitive string of up to 63 characters and cannot contain slot information.

medium-name: Specifies the name of the storage medium for saving the software images. If the storage medium is on a subordinate member, use the slotn#storage-medium format, for example, slot1#flash.

Usage guidelines

To use install commands for upgrade, you must use .bin image files. If the upgrade file is an .ipe file, use this command to decompress the .ipe file before you start the upgrade.

The images decompressed from the .ipe file will be saved to the root directory of the specified medium.

To identify software images that are included in an .ipe file, use the display install ipe-info command.

Examples

# Decompress all.ipe to the flash memory.

network-admin

Usage guidelines

Before you use this command, read the release notes to determine whether the images require licenses. Make sure the device has valid licenses for all license-based images.

This command revises the main startup software image list to be the same as the committed image list. Software changes take effect at the next startup.

You must execute this command after using the following commands:

·     The install activate command in an incremental upgrade.

·     The install deactivate command.

·     The install rollback command.

In a reboot or ISSU reboot upgrade, the install activate command revises both the current and startup software image lists. You do not need to commit software changes.

Both the install commit and boot-loader file commands change main startup software images. To change backup startup images or add inactive images as main startup images, however, you must use the boot-loader file command.

For more information about main and backup startup software images, see Fundamental Configuration Guide.

Parameters

all: Specifies all IRF member devices.

feature: Specifies a space-separated list of up to 30 feature image files.

patch: Specifies a patch image file.

filename: Specifies the name of a .bin file in the root directory of a storage medium on the master, in the storage-medium:/base-filename.bin format. It can be a case-insensitive string of up to 63 characters and cannot contain slot information.

slot slot-number: Specifies an IRF member device by its member ID.

Usage guidelines

You can deactivate only active feature and patch images.

To prevent deactivated images from running after a reboot, you must confirm the software changes by using the install commit command.

At reboot, a subordinate device automatically synchronizes the master device's configuration and status data. You must wait for the synchronization to complete before using the install deactivate command on the subordinate device. To check the synchronization progress, use the display device command. The synchronization is completed when all member device are in normal state.

Parameters

point-id: Specifies a rollback point ID. This option is supported only when there are two or more rollback points. To view available rollback points, use the display install rollback command.

original: Rolls back to the software images that were running before the ISSU.

Usage guidelines

The system creates a rollback point for each service or file upgrade performed through activate or deactivate operation. The rollback points are retained until any of the following events occur:

·     An ISSU reboot or reboot upgrade is performed.

·     The install commit command is executed.

After an ISSU reboot or reboot upgrade is performed, you can roll back the running software images only to the status before any activate or deactivate operations were performed.

After a commit operation is performed, you cannot perform a rollback.

For a rollback to take effect after a reboot, you must perform a commit operation to update the main startup software image list.

A maximum of 50 rollback points are available for service and file upgrades. The earliest rollback point is removed if this limit has been reached when a rollback point is created.

Patch images do not support rollback.

Examples

# Roll back the software to rollback point 1.

<Sysname>install rollback to 1

This operation might take several minutes, please wait...Done.

# Roll back the software to the original software versions and observe the change made by the rollback.

Views

User view

Predefined user roles

network-admin

Parameters

slot slot-number: Specifies the member ID of the original master or a subordinate member that has not been upgraded.

Usage guidelines

For a multichassis IRF fabric, use this command to upgrade subordinate members one by one. You must wait for the upgraded subordinate member to start up again and join the IRF fabric before upgrading another subordinate member. After all members are upgraded, the ISSU status changes to Init, and the ISSU process ends and cannot be rolled back.

For an IRF fabric with a single member, this command ends the ISSU process. When this command is completed, the ISSU status changes to Init, and the ISSU process cannot be rolled back.

At reboot, a subordinate device automatically synchronizes the master device's configuration and status data. You must wait for the synchronization to complete before using the issu commit command on the subordinate device. To check the synchronization progress, use the display device command. The synchronization is completed when all member device are in normal state.

Examples

# After member 2 is upgraded and becomes the new master, upgrade the original master (member 3) and the other subordinate members that have not been upgraded (member 4 and member 1).

Parameters

boot: Specifies a boot image file.

system: Specifies a system image file.

feature: Specifies a space-separated list of up to 30 feature image files.

filename: Specifies the name of a .bin file in the root directory of a storage medium on the master, in the storage-medium:/base-filename.bin format. It can be a case-insensitive string of up to 63 characters and cannot contain slot information.

ipe ipe-filename: Specifies the name of an .ipe file in the root directory of a storage medium on the master, in the storage-medium:/base-filename.ipe format. It can be a case-insensitive string of up to 63 characters and cannot contain slot information.

slot slot-number: Specifies the member ID of a subordinate member. For a compatible upgrade, you can specify only one member ID. For an incompatible upgrade, you can specify a space-separated list of up to nine member IDs. If the IRF fabric has only one member, enter the member ID of this member to upgrade the entire fabric.

Usage guidelines

On a single-chassis IRF fabric, specify the member ID of the member for this command.

On a multichassis IRF fabric, specify one or more subordinate members for this command. As a best practice, specify half of the subordinate members for this command to reduce service interruption if the member devices are connected into a ring topology. Make sure the specified subordinate members are physically connected.

This command performs the following tasks:

·     Examines the compatibility of the specified images with the running images. The result might be compatible or incompatible.

·     Determines the ISSU methods.

The ISSU methods available for a compatible version include:

¡     Incremental upgrade. During the upgrade, the involved processes will be upgrade.

¡     ISSU reboot. During the upgrade, CPUs will be rebooted.

¡     Reboot. During the upgrade, the specified member devices will be rebooted.

The ISSU method for an incompatible version is always reboot.

·     Uses the ISSU methods to upgrade the specified member devices, and configures the upgrade software images as the main startup software images for the specified member devices.

At reboot, a subordinate device automatically synchronizes the master device's configuration and status data. You must wait for the synchronization to complete before using the issu load command on the subordinate device. To check the synchronization progress, use the display device command. The synchronization is completed when all member device are in normal state.

For more information about ISSU methods, see Fundamentals Configuration Guide.

issu rollback

Use issu rollback to cancel the ISSU and roll back to the original software versions.

Syntax

issu rollback

Views

User view

Predefined user roles

network-admin

Usage guidelines

The device supports automatic rollback and manual rollback. This command performs a manual rollback.

You can perform a manual rollback while an ISSU is in one of the following states:

·     Loaded.

·     Switching (during an upgrade to a compatible version).

·     Switchover (during an upgrade to a compatible version).

·     Accepted.

If you perform a manual rollback while an ISSU is in Loading state, the ISSU process ends without changing the original software versions.

When an ISSU to an incompatible version is in Switching state, you cannot perform a manual rollback.

When an ISSU is in Committing state, rollback is not supported.

If the IRF fabric has multiple members, a rollback performed after you execute the issu run switchover command cancels all operations performed during the ISSU process, including the master/subordinate switchover operation.

Examples

# Roll back to the original software versions.

<Sysname> issu rollback

This command will quit the ISSU process and roll back to the previous version. Continue? [Y/N]:y

Views

System view

Predefined user roles

network-admin

Parameters

minutes: Specifies the automatic rollback interval in minutes, in the range of 0 to 120. Setting it to 0 disables the automatic rollback feature.

Usage guidelines

The automatic software version rollback feature is only available on a multichassis IRF fabric during an ISSU to a compatible version.

The system starts the automatic rollback timer when you execute the issu run switchover command in a scenario where automatic rollback is supported. If you do not execute the issu accept or issu commit command before the timer expires, the system automatically rolls back to the software versions before the ISSU.

Change to the automatic rollback interval does not take effect on the ongoing ISSU process.

Examples

# Set the automatic rollback timer to 50 minutes.

<Sysname> system-view

[Sysname] issu rollback-timer 50

Related commands

Views

User view

Predefined user roles

network-admin

Usage guidelines

Use this command on multichassis IRF fabrics.

·     For a compatible version, this command performs tasks depending on the ISSU method:

¡     Incremental upgrade—Performs a process-level master/subordinate switchover for the processes to be upgraded.

¡     Reboot upgrade or ISSU upgrade—Reboots the current master with the old software version, causing the upgraded subordinate member to be elected as the new master.

·     For an incompatible version, the issu load command splits the IRF fabric into two fabrics, with the upgraded members forming a new fabric. The issu run switchover command reboots the members in the old IRF fabric with the upgrade images. After startup, the members join the new IRF fabric as subordinate members.

At reboot, a subordinate device automatically synchronizes the master device's configuration and status data. You must wait for the synchronization to complete before using the issu run switchover command on the subordinate device. To check the synchronization progress, use the display device command. The synchronization is completed when all member device are in normal state.
