Subject: (SUPPORT) Enterprise Linux 3.2.1 for routers available
Version 3.2.1 of ImageStream's Enterprise Linux is now available as a general
release for all ImageStream router customers.
This software release is provided at no charge to all ImageStream customers, and
is recommended for all customers who wish to upgrade to the latest available
See "Limitations and Upgrade Instructions" before upgrading.
This release note documents commands and features added between Version 3.2.0
and the Version 3.2.1 release.
New Features in Version 3.2.1
Ethernet Transceiver Diagnostic And Setup Utility Added
Version 3.2.1 contains a set of utilities used to report the link status and
modify the configuration of Ethernet ports. The MII register diagnostic utility
reports Ethernet link status as read from the MII transceiver management
registers. A facility is also provided to force various link speeds and duplex
settings on and Ethernet port. All 10/100 Ethernet cards, including integrated
ports, may be configured with this utility. Valid settings include 10 or 100
Mbps, full- or half-duplex and forced or automatically negotiated
configurations. The "setmiiregisters" script is available from the Service
configuration menu or from the router's Bash shell.
Restore Router To Factory Defaults Menu Updated
The "Restore router to factory defaults" menu now provides additional status
information and prompts users to press enter/return before returning to the
menu. The change allows for easy confirmation that the router has been
successfully reset to the factory defaults.
Bugs fixed in Version 3.2.1
The following bugs have been fixed in Version 3.2.1:
Gated Startup Script Fixed
Version 3.2.0 failed to start Gated on boot under certain configurations. A
script error caused the reload/reconfigure option to fail and has been corrected
under Version 3.2.1.
Limitations and Upgrade Instructions
*** NOTE! If the upgrade fails, do NOT reboot! Contact ImageStream's
Technical Support without rebooting. ***
Upgrading to Version 3.0 or later requires the following:
1. 64 MB of RAM or higher.
2. 32 MB of flash.
3. 300 MHz processor or better.
3. Enterprise Linux Version 2.3.2 or higher.
The upgrade utility will not install Version 3.0 if memory and flash
requirements are not met. Users can contact ImageStream to purchase a
RAM, processor or flash upgrade.
Users running an Enterprise Linux version less than 2.3.2 must upgrade
before Version 3.0 will be available from the Update menu. Upgrading any
version prior to 2.3.2 will automatically be upgraded to 2.3.2. A second
upgrade will be required to install Version 3.0.
The upgrade does not otherwise affect the stored configuration in the
ImageStream router. To back up the router's configuration prior to
upgrading, choose option 4 (Backup/Restore) from the router's main menu.
Choose the Backup methods option (Option 1) and select a method from the
choices listed. From the router's command line, use the "backup"
command. The backup utility takes four arguments: flash (to back up
configurations to the router's nonvolatile flash memory), floppy (to back up to
a floppy disk), scp (to back up via secure copy), or file (to back up to a
separate file on the router's nonvolatile flash memory).
