Hi Erik, What we do to make upgrade easier is to create a Golden ISO (GISO) using gisobuild.py tool Cisco provides, on a separate Linux box (off-router).
You download the asr9k-mini-x64-<version>.iso and you also need to download the 64-bit tar file which contains the RPM packages. Unpack the tar and place the desired RPM packages you want (e.g. isis, mpls, etc, etc), and place your router config file into your Linux box and run the command like this: $ ./gisobuild.py -i asr9k-mini-x64-6.3.2.iso -r rpm/ -c your_router_config.cfg (make sure you place your desired RPMs into the rpm/ folder) It'll then spit out the packaged ISO -- ftp that over to your router and simply run: RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:router#install update source harddisk: <name of your golden iso file-x64.iso-6.1.3> With 64-bit eXR, PIE packages are now replaced by Linux RPMs. Golden ISO allows you to build your own custom ISO that pre-packages the RPMs you want, and your router's config file. Then you just run a single upgrade command + reboot process that'll wholesale load your desired packages and config in one go. I guess it does make things easier compared to 32-bit cXR days. Documentation on the process and where to find gisobuild.py is here: https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/iosxr/asr9000/flex-packaging/b-flexible-packaging-configuration-guide-asr9000/b-flexible-packaging-configuration-guide-asr9000_chapter_011.pdf If you are migrating from 32-bit XR to 64-bit, then you need to use the '-m' switch to create migrate_to_eXR ISO. You will use the migrate_to_eXR script on your router to perform the upgrade from cXR. Note that if you are running one of the new 10G/1G line cards -- Powerglide; A9K-(24|48)x10GE-1G-(TR|SE) you need to make sure you have the absolute latest FPD from 32-bit cXR before you go to 64-bit eXR. Otherwise, you may find that Powerglide LC remains in SW_INACTIVE and won't even boot to permit fpd upgrades after the 64-bit migration.
