Upgrading a Netscaler 7000 device from v7.0 to v9.1 build 101.5

Posted on April 9th, 2010

I used this process to update a Netscaler 7000 device from v7.0 to v9.1 build 101.5

  • Download Firmware from Citrix.com
  • Download Firmware documentation from Citrix.com
  • Use WinSCP or similar to connect to the Netscaler and create the following folders:
    • /var/nsinstall/nsinstall91/build1015/
  • Copy the two downloaded updates into this folder
  • Using puTTy or similar, connect to the Netscaler
  • Uncompress the updates
    • shell
    • cd ..
    • cd var
    • cd nsinstall
    • cd nsinstall91
    • cd build1015
    • tar –zxvf build_9.1-101.5_cl.tgz
    • tar -zxvf ns-9.1-101.5-doc.tgz
  • Run the update
    • ./installns
    • Reboot: Y

I updated a High Availability pair and did the secondary device first. Once the reboot was finished, I forced a failover to test the update and then repeated the same process on the other device.
