upgrading flare and using cli

Jump to solution
Hello,

We are doing a flare upgrade on Sunday. We are going from FLARE 19 to FLARE 26. We use emc snapview to backup our database clones and have the scripts running on the master backup server. The engineer from EMC told me that we would also have to refresh our admsnap or any other software related to the backup scripts. Since we do not use admsnap, and it looks like we use the navisphere CLI(the scripts were written before I got here), I assume all he means is updating the agent, and navisphere CLI on the server that does the backups. Is there a command comparison guide somewhere that would show me if any commands have changed between the two versions of the CLI 19 > CLI 26.

Thank you!

Also refer to the Rel 26 CLI Reference Guide. A major difference will be the use of Secure CLI with Rel 26. You may still continue using classic CLI as in Rel 19 - but Secure CLI is preferred and in that case, you need to configure the user authentication. Please refer to the CLI Guide for Rel 26.

Apart from Navisphere Suite, you need to check the compatibility of other Storage related software - mainly PowerPath, HBA Driver/Firmware etc and consider upgrading those as well.

Thanks,

Hi,

The strange thing is my backup server is a Solaris machine. When I go to the downloads tab, I can download Sparc for the CLI/Agent, however, I don't see an option to download secure CLI for flare 26 on Solaris Sparc machines.

The secure CLI is included within the CLI package - no seperate download needed for Secure CLI.

You may also use Rel 29 (Latest) CLI - which supports Flare 26 on CX & CX-3 series arrays.
