Ok Guys, before jumping into the whole update process..
and if you want the CNUT to work, read all this stuff and follow it carefully...Remember the following:
You must be running one of thisWindows Platforms
Windows Server 2003
RedHat Enterprise Linux v4
with a minimum of 512MB of RAMThe computer will need network access to connect to the devices being upgraded.
(This translate to, that we must set our TCP/IP properties to 169.254.3.3 and 255.255.0.0, or if you are accessing via mac,
please do the way as how it is done via mac, I personally don't use mac to access my canopy so don't bother asking me
how, hehehe and before I forgot you must be logged in as root in your canopy setup page. Just log in in your canopy set-up
page and use root as the username, password is left blank)Assuming that the proper version of CNUT is installed and your desired update package/s is already saved in your PC, we may now proceed with the steps in updating your canopy.First
Open your CNUT
(Canopy Network Updater Tool), then highlight Network Root
, then click Add Network Element
After clicking Add Network Element, a window appears, from the Element Type
dropdown box select Subscriber Module (SM)
, then in the Element Host Name(s)/IP Address(s)
, type your canopy's ip address 169.254.1.1
(again, if your's is set to 192.168.1.1 like jovantot's, then please do so or whatever ip your canopy might have, but the default is 169.254.1.1). then click OK
make sure you select your SM by putting a check next to it, then click View
, then click Refresh/Discover Selected Network Elements
, If this is successful
(connection to your SM, again you must be logged in as root and set your tcp/ip properties to 169.254.3.3 and 255.255.0.0 if you use MAC addressing method, don't bother asking me how to do it, as I am no fond in using MAC) you should see an info next to your SM like the picture below.
If CNUT can't access or communicate with your SM properly you may be having problems following my steps. Read again, this time slowly without the excitement.
BTW,In the above picture my Software Version is already 8.2.2 (I already updated my Canopy from 8.1.5 to 8.2.2 SM-DES, before I post this guide that is why I am 100% this steps here will work!), what I am doing here is just a guide. So I don't want anyone questioning why am I adding the package 8.2.2 SM-DES in the next step.Fourth
With your SM still checked, click Update
, then click Manage Packages
Then after that, a Package Manager
window will appear, click Add
, then select the package file you saved earlier in your PC, in my example I have the latest 8.2.2 SM-DES package added (If you are Using the New CNUT it will ask for the *.pkg2 file, if using the Old CNUT it will ask fot the *.pkg file), after successful selection (see picture below) you can now Close
the Update Manager Window.Fifth
with your SM still checked, click Update
, then click Update Selected Network Elements
, from this point onwards.. the rest is up to you.. and please be patient to wait for the update process to complete.. It is just normal for the CNUT to reboot your SM don't worry about that.WARNING:
Don't blame me if you made your SM unusable. (this is provided as it is, and does not guarantee that your SM will not encounter a problem along the update process, things happen guys, damn it!)ANOTHER REMINDER:
For the last time, set your TCP/IP properties to 169.254.3.3 and 255.255.0.0 or else the CNUT won't be able to access your Canopy via 169.254.1.1
Don't worry about the update time we are only updating ONE canopy and that is your's, this will only take a few minutes depending on your machine mine is a P4 2.4 GHz, 512 MB DDR 333 RAM, GE PRO-M2 MoBo..yes I know and I don't want any criticism. My PC is slow by today's standard but it was in the category "fastest" five or four years ago.
Make sure your PC meet the specified requirement, and if it does not and still want to push the update process. Then do so, don't tell me that I didn't warn you!
If you are not verse in the technical aspects of this steps then please ask someone who knows what I am talking about here to assist you in the update.
Does anyone here knows the IP of our AP?, I tried 10.0.0.1 but this is inaccessible..
Does anybody have the CNUT (the older version the one that needs a *.pkg file)?
Lastly does anyone here have the package file for 8.0 SM-DES Software Version, I need to downgrade my Canopy Software Version..(It's much easier to configure NAT in version 8.0, mine is locked up so that is why I need it (I am only needing it, if Jovantot's suggestion to me would not work
PM me people, I'm expecting replies..
