Before you Upgrade to Release
7.3.1
The following is a check list to be reviewed before upgrading the system
software from Release 7.1.x or 7.2.1 to Release 7.3.1.
The document Release Notes for Release 7.3.1 has been reviewed for
information about upgrading the system software.
The "Troubleshooting" chapter of the Solutions Guide for each module type
installed or to be installed on the system has been reviewed for information
relating to a system software upgrade.
The management network is operating at an acceptable performance level.
There are no CONTCOM alarms on the system. See the Alarm and
Troubleshooting Guide for information about clearing a CONTCOM alarm.
The location to which the database will be backed up has enough space to
store the data.


NOTE: A fully configured AW-60 main shelf and its log files
can create a backup file of several megabytes in size. For
more information, see Performing Database Backup.
If you are replacing the SCP, ensure that both software banks on their
placement SCP are loaded with the same software image of the release to
which you are upgrading, and that the release numbers for the Active and
Inactive software banks match.
If you use the AccessWave Management System to manage AccessWave
Series nodes in the network, ensure the following:
The AccessWave Management System Release 7.2.1 is available to
perform a database backup of the Release 7.2.1 configuration database.
The AccessWave Management System Release 7.3.1 is available for
installation. For information, see Setting up the AccessWave
Management System.
The computer on which the AccessWave Management System will be
installed meets the minimum requirements for the software. For
information, see Installing AccessWave Management System Release
7.3.1 on Microsoft Windows or Installing AccessWave Management
System Release 7.3.1 on Solaris.

426006-2423-023-A00 ECI Telecom Ltd. Proprietary 2-3


NOTE: AFFECTED SERVICES DURING UPGRADE
When a system-level upgrade has been completed, you must
perform a cold restart of all 8-port & 10-port Multiprotocol
Muxponders installed on the system. A cold restart is
required to enable provisioning of Release 7.3.1 features and
activation of software updates on these Muxponder modules.

Performing Database Backup
The AW-60 SCP maintains all provisionable data in non-volatile storage so
that configuration settings are retained during a system shutdown and restart.
This configuration database is version controlled to facilitate the detection of an
incompatible software load or database.
Before you upgrade the system software to Release 7.3.1, you can back up the
database locally, to an FTP server, or to the AccessWave Series SCP.


IMPORTANT: ECI Telecom recommends that the database be
backed up to the SCP and either locally or to an FTP server.
Backing up to the SCP enables you to cancel the upgrade if
necessary, and then revert to the configuration database stored
on the SCP.
If you choose to back up to an FTP server, you can either specify a particular
FTP server or use the FTP utility embedded in the AccessWave Management
System.

The SYSUPGRDPROG (System Software Upgrade in Progress) alarm
is raised, and its severity is Minor.
The modules in the system are loaded with the upgraded system software.
The alarm severity changes from Minor to Major and the system then
restarts, starting with the SCP and followed by the modules, and then
the TL1 session ends.


IMPORTANT: The amount of time that the invoke operation
takes to complete depends on the configuration of the node.
For example, for a full four-shelf system, the invoke
operation may take up to one hour to complete.


NOTE: During re initialization, the red Fail LED on each
module may light temporarily while the green Active LED is
lit.
6. When the red Fail LEDs turn off, log on to the system.


NOTE: It can take several minutes to connect to the system.
7. Enter the following at the TL1 command line interface to check the severity
of the SYSUPGRDPROG alarm:
RTRV-ALM-ALL:[TID]::CTAG::,,,,,;
For example,
RTRV-ALM-ALL:AccessWave Series::100::,,,,,;
If the severity of the SYSUPGRDPROG alarm is MJ (Major), the
system
upgrade is still in progress. Use the RTRV-ALM-ALL command to
check the severity of SYSUPGRDPROG alarm until the severity
changes to MN (Minor), which indicates that the system upgrade is
complete, and then proceed to the next step.
If the severity of the SYSUPGRDPROG alarm is MN (Minor), the system
upgrade is complete. Proceed to the next step.


NOTE: At this point, you may cancel the software system
upgrade if necessary and revert to Release 7.2.1 of the system
software. For information, see Cancelling a System Software
Upgrade Process using TL1.

After the upgrade to Release 7.3.1 is committed, any new shelves and modules
to be deployed can be added and provisioned. For information, see the
following documents:
Common Equipment Installation Guide
Operations Solution Guide
Solutions Guide for the module portfolio
Auto-upgrade Support on
Modules
All modules (that is, Transponders, Muxponders, Optical Amplifiers, DCMs,
and Multiplexers) ship with pre-loaded software. When a module is inserted
into a shelf, the module software release number is checked to determine if it
matches that of the system software. The module software is automatically
upgraded if it is an earlier version than the system software.
During an auto upgrade, the following occurs:
The UPGRDPROG minor alarm is raised.
The module upgrade starts.
The module initializes.
The UPGRDPROG alarm clears.


IMPORTANT: Review the "Troubleshooting" chapter of the
Solutions Guide for a module portfolio for information about
additional procedures that might be required after an auto-

Recommended Actions for Failure Invoking
1. Check for file transfer problems:
If the error message Database Load Failed is returned, check to see if
there has been a problem during the file transfer process. Check that the:
Filename is correct
Correct IP address is entered
FTP server is running
Gateway on the FTP server is correct
FTP server can communicate with the AccessWave Series by pinging the
AccessWave Series from the FTP server
That the path is set correctly. Some UNIX FTP servers require the user to
specify the complete directory path of the file
UNIX permissions are set to global read-write access
There was no network interruption during the system upgrade or database
restore
If no apparent reason can be found for the file transfer failure, contact your
next level of support.
2. Check the Alarms to see if any alarms are present. See the applicable alarm
clearing procedure for instructions to clear the alarm.
3. If an alarm is present and you want to proceed with the Invoke, check to
see if the Ignore Alarms option in the Software Upgrade window, is enabled.
4. If you are using TL1, INVK-SYS-UPGRD command may be blocked.
The following conditions cause the INVK-SYS-UPGRD command to be
blocked:
If alarms are present in the system, the INVK-SYS-UPGRD command
is blocked. Clear the alarms that are present and then proceed with the
INVKSYS-UPGRD command.
If the system has already upgraded to the new product release, the INVK-
SYS-UPGRD command is blocked. You cannot upgrade the system to the
product release that the system is currently running.
If the INVK-SYS-UPGRD command has already been issued, or if an
upgrade is already in progress, the INVK-SYS-UPGRD command is
blocked. A subsequent INVK-SYS-UPGRD command cannot be issued
before the upgrade is completed.
If there is an attempt to downgrade the system software, the INVK-SYS-
UPGRD command is blocked. Contact your next level of support if you
need assistance.
For the scenarios described above, wait for any ongoing commands to
complete and then determine where you are in respect to the current system
status.
If you cannot determine what state the system is in, contact your next level
of support.

Module Upgrade Failure
The AccessWave Series confirms when all modules have been successfully
upgraded to a new software release. If a module fails to upgrade properly, the
system raises a Circuit Pack Upgrade Failure alarm (PACKUPGRDFAIL).
This alarm indicates which module failed to upgrade.


NOTE: The module upgrade failure is not a service affecting
condition. The module continues to run its original software
and continues to process optical signals properly.

While the PACKUPGRDFAIL alarm is active, both alarm reporting and
performance monitoring data collection are disabled.
If a module upgrade fails, contact ECI Telecom Support.Chapter 3, Returning
to an earlier version of the system software
Database Recovery Failure
When an SCP is replaced, the new SCP automatically acquires the provisioning
database from an active module in the system. This simplifies the replacement
process because a manual database restore operation is not required.
The AccessWave Series confirms when the SCP has successfully recovered the
database from the system. If the database is not recovered, a Database
Recovery Failure alarm (DBRECVRYFAIL) is raised. In this situation, the
database must be restored manually from a remote FTP server. For information
about clearing this alarm, see the Alarm and Troubleshooting Guide.
