Overview

This article describes how to back up your database and then upgrade Storage Manager Server on a Linux OS.

Environment

  • Storage Manager, all versions
  • Linux

Steps

Prerequisite: Back up the database

Before you upgrade, complete the following steps to back up the database.

  1. Stop the MySQL Service.
  2. Make a copy of the following directory and store it in a safe location outside of the Storage Manager installation directory:
     
    <StorageManagerServerInstDirectory>\mysql\data\storage
     
  3. Start the MySQL service and all Storage Manager services again before upgrading.

Upgrade Storage Manager Server on a Linux OS

  1.  Log in as root.
  2. Execute the installation binary: 

    # ./Storage_Manager_Server-linux-x86_64.bin
     
  3. When prompted, enter the following information:    
    • Destination Path: The path where you want to install the agent. A directory will be created underneath this path if it does not already exist.
    • Agent Port: Correlates to the web services port that is used by the server to communicate with the agent. The default port '4319' is recommended.
    • Server Trap Port: Also related to the agent setup, the 'Server Trap Port' must be set to the port listening on the server for incoming trap events. The default port '162' is recommended.
    • Storage Manager database Password: The password needed to access the Storage Manager database. It is important to write it down and keep it in a safe place. This password is used by the Storage Manager services to access the Storage Manager database. It is NOT the password used to login to the GUI.
  4. To start the server, execute the following command:

    #/usr/bin/storage_manager_server start
     

Note: To stop the server, execute the following command:

#/usr/bin/storage_manager_server stop
