Release Information for ExtremeCloud IQ Virtual Appliance

In this topic, you can find information about IQ Virtual Appliance releases, upgrade process, hardware, supported software, devices, and browsers, and CLI reference and other guides.

ExtremeCloud IQ is the simplest, easiest network management system yet. From the guided network policy configuration that breaks the policy into logical sections while displaying your progress along the top of the GUI to numerous monitoring improvements, such as sliders that you can drag to determine any time period shown in a chart, this GUI makes device management task-oriented rather than feature-oriented. Features appear as you need them to perform a task, making it unnecessary to search through the GUI to find them.

Upgrading ExtremeCloud IQ Virtual Appliance

Version 12 of IQ Virtual Appliance introduced an improved architecture that expands and optimizes back-end functionality, while reducing the footprint.

Upgrading from ExtremeCloud IQ Virtual Appliance 11.26.3.5 to 12.8

You can upgrade from IQ Virtual Appliance version 11.26.3.5 to version 12.8, but you cannot upgrade directly on the same VM through the GUI. Instead, the process requires a fresh installation of the version 12.8 to a new VM.

During this process, you must download image files or export VHM files that are very large. To ensure that your upgrade goes smoothly, delete or archive unneeded images or files that might take up disk space and affect performance. The complete upgrade path from 11.26.3.5 to 12.8 is as follows:

[ 11.26.3.5 ] >> [ Patch 11.26.3.6 ] >> [ 12.8 ]

To upgrade, perform the following steps:

1. Download Upgrade-related Images

Download the upgrade package (11.26.3.6) and the new IQ Virtual Appliance 12.8 image

The 64-bit IQ Virtual Appliance software is available for Extreme Networks customers on the Extreme Networks Support Portal. After you log in, navigate to Software Downloads > Current Software Releases > ExtremeCloud IQ Releases > version_number > ExtremeCloud IQ Software to find the current version of IQ Virtual Appliance. The upgrade pack file name has the following format and is accompanied by a brief description of the file and the MD5 checksum value:

hivemanager-ng-upgrade-pack-<version>-<date>.tar.signed

The IQ Virtual Appliance installation image has the following format and is also accompanied by a description and the MD5 checksum value:

hmva-signed-12.8.0.1-NGVA-2018-04-07-aerohive.ova

Be sure to note the save location of the files, or choose a download location that is easy to find, such as on the Desktop.

2. Install The IQ Virtual Appliance 11.26.3.6 Upgrade Package

The 11.26 upgrade package introduces Virtual IQ export capabilities that facilitate the transfer of Virtual IQ information from the source Virtual IQ to the new Virtual IQ.

To install the upgrade package, do the following:

Back up your virtual machine by using the Snapshot feature of Vmware vCenter. The snapshot feature makes a complete backup of the virtual machine, including both the data and the software.

When your backup is complete, begin the upgrade by navigating to Account Details > Upgrade HiveManager, clicking Upload Patch and Upgrade, choosing the file (hivemanager-ng-upgrade-pack-<version>-<date>.tar.signed)you saved previously, and then clicking Open in the dialog.

3. Export Your ExtremeCloud IQ Virtual Machine:

In ExtremeCloud IQ, click Admin > Global Settings > VHM Management > Export VHM, click Export Now, and then confirm by clicking Yes.

Depending on the extent of your current network configuration, the export process can take several minutes. For very small configurations with few rules, few objects and profiles, and few devices, exporting the VHM can take as little as one minute.

The following table lists the information that is included or not included when you export the ExtremeCloud IQVirtual IQ:

Information Exported Information Not Exported

Private Device Firmware
Email Notification Settings
Default Device Admin Password
Device Inventory
Maps
System Settings
Device and Network Configurations
Certificates
Captive Web Portal Files

Monitoring Data
Alarm Data
Event Data
Audit Log Information

Because client data (monitoring, alarm, and event data) is not exported, you can only retain client data in the form of reports. When you upgrade to IQ Virtual Appliance 12.8, client data in the database is lost.

4. Download The Exported Virtual Machine File:

When ExtremeCloud IQ exports your Virtual IQ file, it makes it available for download within ExtremeCloud IQ itself and prompts you to log in to ExtremeCloud IQ to access it. You might need to log out, log back in, and then click Admin > Global Settings > Virtual IQ Management to download the file.

5. Install IQ Virtual Appliance 12.8:

Upgrading from IQ Virtual Appliance 11.26 to IQ Virtual Appliance 12.8 requires a new installation because of the enhancements in the back-end architecture; there is no direct update path from v11.26.3.5 to v12.8.

To view the steps needed to install IQ Virtual Appliance 12.8, see "ExtremeCloud IQ Virtual Appliance".

6. Import Your Virtual IQ File Into IQ Virtual Appliance 12.8:

To import your Virtual IQ file into IQ Virtual Appliance, click Admin > Global Settings > VHM Management > Import VHM, choose the file you exported in step 3, and then click Import Now.

  • You can also choose how ExtremeCloud IQ responds to error conditions during the importation process. If you want the import process to halt when an error is encountered, select Abort (default). If you want IQ Virtual Appliance to continue importing the file until completion without halting, select Continue.

7. Manually Change Device Statuses And Upload Configurations To Devices

When you import your Virtual IQ into IQ Virtual Appliance 12.8, the devices are imported in an unmanaged state. Because of this, IQ Virtual Appliance ignores device connection attempts. To allow your devices to connect to ExtremeCloud IQ, manually change the status of your devices to Managed.

To ensure that your devices are running the latest configuration updates in the context of the new architecture, be sure to upload full configurations to all your devices.

New Features and Enhancements

Expand the New Features and Enhancements and Known and Addressed Issues section below for additional release information:

ExtremeCloud IQ Virtual Appliance 20.1.5.2

There are no new features in IQ Virtual Appliance 20.1.5.2.

Addressed Issues in IQ Virtual Appliance 20.1.5.2

ID Description
CFD-4753 IQ Virtual Appliance generated the incorrect CLI commands for AP305C access points configured to use 802.11g/n.
CFD-4678 IQ Virtual Appliance populated the device list very slowly when the number of devices exceeded 100.

Known Issues in HiveManager Virtual Appliance 20.1.5.2

ID Description
CFD-4779 Administrators with Observer permissions are unable to filter by location.
APC-20707 When an admin selects multiple switches in ExtremeCloud IQ, the Get Tech Data utility becomes unavailable.
APC-20647 When an admin configures a network policy containing an external RADIUS server, and then attempts to upload the policy to a switch, IQ Virtual Appliance does not apply the configuration and returns an error message.
DAPC-405 Administrators are unable to onboard devices if the DNS service is not configured with an IP address.
DAPC-385 ExtremeCloud IQ sometimes displays the incorrect port number in the tool tip when the admin mouses over a stack port on the Port Status page.
DAPC-384 After an admin configures a high-priority PSE port on a switch stack, ExtremeCloud IQ displays the new priority, but does not propagate the change to the device after upload.
DAPC-382 When an administrator attaches a switch stack to HiveManager Virtual Appliance, only the master switch is auto-detected. The administrator must subsequently onboard the remaining stack members manually.
DAPC-367 When upgrading the stacked switch device firmware, IQ Virtual Appliance reports that the upgrade timed out and was unsuccessful, despite a successful upgrade.
DAPC-365 After enabling SSH availability, IQ Virtual Appliance sometimes displayed an error message, and SSH only appeared to be available for a few seconds before returning to a disabled state; however, in reality, SSH remained available for the prescribed amount of time despite the status HiveManager NG displayed.

Workaround: Because the issue is only with the display and not with the function of SSH availability, you can navigate away, and then return to the SSH Availability page to view the correct values.
