Content

Upgrade WebSphere Cast Iron Hypervisor or WebSphere DataPower Cast Iron XH40 Appliance (.scrypt2 or .vcrypt2 file)

This upgrade process does not destroy user data.
Note: When upgrading, any 3rd party connector libraries used are preserved, so you do not need to reinstall the libraries after you upgrade.

The upgrade process for both WebSphere DataPower Cast Iron XH40 Appliance and WebSphere Cast Iron Hypervisor is the same but the firmware file you require is different:

Appliance File Extension
WebSphere DataPower Cast Iron XH40 Appliance .scrypt2
WebSphere Cast Iron Hypervisor .vcrypt2

You can complete the upgrade by using the Web Management Console (WMC) or the Command Line Interface (CLI).
    Using the WMC
      1. Download the fix pack from Fix Central and copy to a location where you can access it.
      2. Using the WMC, log in to the appliance that you want to upgrade.
      3. Select System -> Upgrade. The Upgrade page displays.
      4. Click the Upgrade Operating System link. The Upgrade Wizard launches.
      5. Click Browse to locate the upgrade file.
      6. Click Upgrade. The appliance uploads the firmware file and starts the upgrade process. When the upgrade is complete, the appliance automatically reboots.
      7. When the reboot is complete, the WMC login page displays. If the page does not display, click your browser's refresh button.
    Using the CLI

    If you wish to upgrade using the Command Line Interface (CLI), refer to Upgrading firmware when WMC is not started.
