Install and deploy Cisco WAE 7.1.1


I installed the WAE 6.4.5 at formal and summaried to Blog, e.g: INSTALL CISCO WAE 6.4.5. After 7.0, install/config have big change and similar with NSO that easy/module to deploy. For this article, only talk about how to install and enable.

Auto source profile

Similar with NSO, add “source” command to “.bash_profile” that in MacOS. That will let you direct to login to WAE but not do “source wae711/waerc”, as follow:

[root@frank ~]# echo "source /opt/wae711/waerc" >> .bash_profile
[root@frank ~]# more .bash_profile | grep wae
source /opt/wae711/waerc

After installed Centos 6.7 for CISCO WAE, I found python version is 2.6 that is much older, and I need ansible1.9, but Centos default upgrade to ansible2.2… in order to easy management ansible1.9 that is python package, I plan to install PIP. From official website, suggest not use 2.6 under pip, so I need to upgrade python to 2.7 too.

But I found WAE use 2.6 after I succeed upgrade python to 2.7…Summarized the totally steps that will help me review in future.

Upgrade Python

After checked from follow link, python 2.7.9 integrate pip, so install this version 🙂

1. Install some package that require by python

python have multi dependencie

[root@wae ~]# yum install gcc
[root@wae ~]# yum install openssl-devel

2. Install python 2.7.9

[root@wae ~]# wget
[root@wae ~]# mv Python-2.7.9.tgz /opt/
[root@wae ~]# cd /opt/
[root@wae opt]# tar -xvf Python-2.7.9.tgz 
[root@wae opt]# cd Python-2.7.9
[root@wae Python-2.7.9]# ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/python2.7
[root@wae Python-2.7.9]# make
[root@wae Python-2.7.9]# make install
