How to Gather the Data Needed for a Network CARE Plan AOE Upgrade Request

How to Gather the Data Needed for a Network CARE Plan AOE Upgrade Request


When a request for ADTRAN to upgrade your AOE server as part of the Network Care Package is submitted (subject to all pre-requisites in the Description of Services), Product Support will ask for the following information from the server to gauge their ability and the time required to complete the task. This walks you through obtaining the required information and gives an example of what the information should look like.

Note: To gather this information, you must be able to SSH into the AOE Server using an SSH client such as PUTTY or SecureCRT. 

1. Log into the AOE server using SSH. You can use any Linux user account to log into the server, but you must be able to eventually log into the AOE administrator account (default "ems") to properly run these commands. If you do not know this username and password, ask your linux administrator.

2. Once inside AOE via SSH, if you do not know the AOE Administrator account, you can run the following command. The name is shown in the below in red:

$ cat /etc/adtran-aoe-env.conf
#This file is used by Adtran's AOE Management Software.


You can ask your system administrator for the password to this account. There is more information on this file here:

3. Log into the AOE Administrator account (if you are not already there) using su <user>:

[user@MGMT-C3RU2 ~]$ su ems
[ems@MGMT-C3RU2 ~]$

4: Run the following 9 commands by copying and pasting them into the session. Make sure each gets similar output. The command is explained below in the output in red :

cat /etc/*release

free -m

df -h

cat /proc/cpuinfo

cat /etc/hosts


grep aboutText /opt/dorado/owareapps/redcell/core/setup/settings.txt


Example Output:

[ems@MGMT-C3RU2 ~]$ cat /etc/*release ---- Tells you the specific CentOS/RHEL Release information

5. Once done, copy all the commands and output into a text file and provide it to support. Make sure the data copies over properly into the text file and no formatting is lost so it can be read.
