II. Upgrade procedure


1. Export configuration data and running data: 
	ISM -> Settings -> Import/Export -> Export Configuration Data  & Export Running Data.

2. Stop I/O load or stop NAS Services via ISM
	ISM -> CIFS -> CIFS Service ->Disable
	ISM -> CIFS -> NFS Service ->Disable
	ISM -> FTP -> FTP Service ->Disable
	ISM -> HTTP-> HTTP Service ->Disable
	ISM -> Replication -> Job ->Disable

   Or stop services via master login (CLISH):
	N8300>CIFS server stop
	N8300>NFS server stop
	N8300>FTP server stop
	N8300>HTTP server stop
	N8300>Replication service stop

3. Download Filestore-N8300-5.6RP1P2.tar.gz to a Windows machine, expand and check md5sum:
	fb23d358348fc2dbb00a7159e20cf941  SFSFS-patch-5_6_rp1p2_rc9_2011_11_01.tar.gz
	283f5857f868743951064e7d82ecd813  ST9SPCF201.03.05.126.T03.tgz
	e0e17b58463166ab94a548e106e41bb8  fc_ses.bin
	93978e8e6b5c418a61ba3589912d8da9  n8k_patch111112.tar.gz
	a1baf7e8a48f06e06555068132379a64  FileStore ISM.exe
4. Plan service down time for about 1 hours:
	Filestore patch takes about 45 minutes to install for two-node cluster. 
	ISM patch takes about 15 minutes to install. 
	Array patch takes about 30 minutes to install. 
	Array can be upgraded in parallel with Filestore patch using stand-alone ISM (FileStore ISM.exe).

5. Array upgrade is not required if cluster is already at 5.6RP1P1 which has array version of 126.T03 and SES version of 077

6. Before reinstalling,  turn off the clone flag for disks on the master node via support login:
	1.Use the following command to check if there are clone disks:
	# vxdisk list|grep clone_disk
	2.After verifying the the clone disks, use the following command to turn of the clone flag:
	# for disk in `vxdisk list | grep clone_disk | awk '{print $1}' `
		vxdisk -f updateudid $disk
		vxdisk set $disk clone=off

Install Filestore Patch 

1. Copy  SFSFS-patch-5_6_rp1p2_rc9_2011_11_01.tar.gz to filestore master node via support login.
2. Install Filestore Patch via  master login (CLISH):

	N8300>upgrade patch install scp://support@localhost:/home/support/patches/SFSFS-patch-5_6_rp1p2_rc9_2011_11_01.tar.gz

	Patch will be installed on slave nodes first followed by reboot. Master node will be installed last and will reboot, hence the above command will break. 

3. Monitor and check cluster status: 
	To check installation is done, login to master node again (should switch to another node) and check all nodes are at running state:
	N8300>cluster show
	----            -----      -----------   -------- --------   -------- --------
	N8300_01       RUNNING          0.98       0.01     0.00       0.01     0.00 
	N8300_02       RUNNING          0.97       0.01     0.00       0.01     0.00 

	N8300_01# gabconfig -a
		GAB Port Memberships
		Port a gen  1128e02 membership 01
		Port b gen  1128e04 membership 01
		Port f gen  1128e0c membership 01
		Port h gen  1128e06 membership 01

Install ISM Patch

1. Copy n8k_patch111105.tar.gz to filestore master node via support login.

	N8300_01# cd patch/
