NSR e1200-160 to e-1200-320

We are going to updrade our current MSL NSRs from e-1200-160 to e1200-320. Any advise on the upgrade to ease the upgrade pain? are there any settings I need to note?

What library?

You should note all the settings, the mapping may be the most important.

It may help to save the settings to a file also. Maybe you can restore it.

Hope this helps!

The MSL is a 6060 with 3 NSRs

A single MSL6060 with 3 NSRs? Really? Or a master/slave?

However, you can try to connect via ftp, save the config and restore to the new devices.

Hope this helps!

Re: NSR e1200-160 to e-1200-320

Here are the steps to get the config file from each NSR:--

1- Login to NSR IP.
2- Click on Utilities
3- In utilities menu click on FTP Utility.

FTP Utility
Requires Sun JRE version 1.4.1_07 or later

1. Fill "User Name", "Password" and "Router IP Address" fields.

2. Click "Connect" to establish a connection with the router.

3. Use BROWSE or the Local File box to specify the filename and directory of the file to be read or written.

4. Select "Binary" transfer mode.

5. Click "Put to Rtr" button to load a file onto the router or "Get from Rtr" button to retrieve a file from the router.

The following files can be sent to the router:

"any name".cfg (valid configuration file)
"any name".dlx (valid firmware file)

The following files can be retrieved from the router:

"any name".cfg (configuration file) curtrace.txt (system traces for the current boot cycle)

prvtrace.txt (system traces from previous boot cycle)

If a valid firmware file or a config file is sent to the router, an automatic reboot will occur once the file has been received. The user will not be able to access the web server while the router reboots. This is a period of at least 60 seconds, or more if SCSI discovery delays are enabled.


Use the above steps to obtain the Config file from all the NSR's and import them back to the new one's.

Hope this helps.

Sunny

I haven't worked with the latest NSR firmware, but I used to use a FTP client on the desktop and the NSR's embedded FTP server -- OK, if you prefer a GUI ... ;-)

Re: NSR e1200-160 to e-1200-320

When I ftp to the NSR I see these files:

150 Opening ASCII mode data connection
size date time name
-------- ------ ------ --------
0 May-19-2009 10:35:03 5.9.44_fw_winston.dlx
1024 May-19-2009 10:35:03 curtrace.txt
1024 May-19-2009 10:35:03 prvtrace.txt
262148 May-19-2009 10:35:03 *.cfg
0 May-19-2009 10:35:03 *.o


what files do I need to move to the new NSR?

Hi,

You only need to move the *.cfg file. That is the configuration file which has all the information of the MAPS and the NSR settings.
