Download Description

This firmware release includes improved capability and usability enhancements for the appliance. For more information, see the WebSphere DataPower XC10 Appliance V2.5 Information Center. For a list of fixes and improvements that are included in this fix pack, see the IBM WebSphere eXtreme Scale and WebSphere DataPower XC10 Appliance Releases and Updates web page.

IBM WebSphere DataPower XC10 Virtual Appliance for Developers: Download the IBM WebSphere DataPower XC10 Virtual Appliance for Developers, which is an open virtual appliance (OVA) package that you can import into your virtualization environment. With this image, you can test and develop with the XC10 software before you create your data grid on the physical appliance.

Prerequisites

Two firmware upgrades exist for this release. See the following descriptions to determine which firmware upgrade to download:


Run the show ssd-version command from a command prompt. If this command does not exist on your system, then, the SSD driver installed in the appliance is level 3.1.1. If the command exists on your system, then the output indicates whether the appliance is at SSD driver level 3.1.1 or 3.2.6; for example:

Command output from a virtual appliance where there is no SSD card.
Console> show ssd-version
No version reported. By default, use a firmware not tagged for VSL 3.2.6.

Command output from a virtual appliance where there is an old SSD card.
Console> show ssd-version
Version: 3.1.1 build 172. By default, use a firmware not tagged for VSL 3.2.6.

Command output from an appliance where there is a newer SSD driver:
Console> show ssd-version
Version: 3.2.6 build 1212. Use a firmware tagged for VSL 3.2.6

Alternatively, in the monitoring console, click Collective > Members. Select a collective member. If the line SSD Version is present, then determine whether the level is 3.2.6 or higher. If so, you have the new driver. If not, then you have the old driver.

Firmware and driver 9005.rel.xc10.scrypt3

This firmware image contains the VSL 3.1.1 SSD driver. This image includes a firmware driver that is intended for appliances that already contain the VSL 3.1.1 or lower SSD driver. When you install this image, you also upgrade the SSD driver. After you have upgraded, the appliance firmware cannot be rolled back to the previous 2.1.0.0 version. However, you can roll back to the VSL 3.1.1 firmware version that you had before you applied the VSL 3.1.1 SSD driver upgrade.

Firmware and driver 9005.rel.xc10.vsl.3.2.6.scrypt3

This firmware image contains the latest VSL 3.2.6 SSD driver. This image includes a firmware driver that is intended for appliances that contain the VSL 3.2.6 or lower version. After you upgrade with this firmware image, the appliance firmware cannot be rolled back to the previous firmware version that you installed for V2.5 Fix Pack 3. Likewise, if you upgrade to this VSL 3.2.6 SSD driver from an existing VSL 3.1.1 SSD driver, then you cannot roll back to the VSL 3.1.1 SSD driver version. However, if you upgrade to a firmware that contains the VSL 3.2.6 SSD driver from an appliance that already contains the VSL 3.2.6 SSD driver, the you can roll back to the previous VSL 3.2.6 firmware version.

Alternatively, use the following table to determine the rollback scenarios for each firmware and driver image:

Begin with SSD driver Upgrade the firmware using driver Rollback available
VSL 3.1.1 VSL 3.1.1 Yes
VSL 3.1.1 VSL 3.2.6 No
VSL 3.2.6 VSL 3.1.1 You must roll back because this scenario causes the system to fail.
VSL 3.2.6 VSL 3.2.6 Yes
