Once you have updated the inactive partition either by Upgrading the Inactive Partition or by Uploading Firmware Patches, new software does not take effect until you activate newly updated partition. When you activate the partition, the system must reboot to boot from the desired partition. All configuration is preserved when you activate the partition.
The instructions outlined include rebooting the Sonus SBC 1000/2000 system. This will disrupt call services on the Sonus SBC 1000/2000 and should only be completed during a planned service outage.
To set the Active Partition:
- In the WebUI, click the Settings tab.
In the left navigation pane, go to System > Software Management > Application Partitions.
- Click the Set Active link in the row entry associated with the partition that you wish to activate.
The inactive partition is the row entry listed without a tick mark under the 'Active Partition' column
You will be prompted to reboot the Sonus SBC 1000/2000, click OK.
It will take up to 15 seconds for the action to be processed, and you will not see any visible indication during this short period of time.
The following status message will be dispatched indicating that the system is rebooting off of the new partition
