SSH Tectia

Upgrading SSH Tectia Manager with Oracle Database

To upgrade SSH Tectia Manager that is using the Oracle database, follow the instructions below:

  1. Log in as the root user.

  2. Stop the Management Server:

    # /etc/init.d/ssh-mgmt-server stop
  3. Upgrade the Management Database.

  4. Download the Management Server installation package to a temporary directory of your choice.

  5. To install the latest Management Server software:

    1. On Linux, run the following command:

      # rpm --upgrade ssh-mgmt-server-<v>-linux-x86.rpm 
    2. On Solaris, uncompress the installation package, and run the following commands:

      # cp /cdrom/install/solaris/ssh-mgmt-server-<v>-sparc-solaris8-9.pkg.Z . 
        # uncompress ssh-mgmt-server-<v>-solaris-8-10-sparc.pkg.Z 
        # pkgrm SSHmgmtse 
        ... answer "yes" to any questions displayed 
        # pkgadd -d ssh-mgmt-server-<v>-solaris-8-10-sparc.pkg all 
        ... answer "yes" to any questions displayed 

    In the commands, <v> is the current release version of the Management Server (for example

  6. Restart the Management Server with command:

    # /etc/init.d/ssh-mgmt-server restart 

    Always start the modules using the startup script provided here, since running the binaries directly would cause the paths and the environment to be set incorrectly.

  7. Wait for the database update to finish (may take a few minutes) and login to the Management Server.

    In case of problems, check the syslog for possible error messages. An environment that is running correctly should always have the Management Database process and the Management Server processes (ssh-mgmt-server and ssh-mgmt-engine) running.

  8. Import the license file for SSH Tectia Manager from the installation file directory. In the SSH Tectia Manager administration interface, select Software → Licenses → Import license and choose the appropriate license for SSH Tectia Manager. If you are running both SSH Tectia MFT Auditor and SSH Tectia Manager on the same host, import both licences.

    After the license has been successfully imported, log out and restart the Management Server to activate the new license features.

  9. Upgrade the Management Agents to new versions remotely at Software → Management Agent → Install.

    The Management Server installation package includes also the installation packages for the Management Agents for all supported platforms. There is no need to import them separately to the Management Server machine.


    The Management Agents are backwards compatible so much that they can be upgraded. Using other management functionalities with an old Management Agent may cause various problems and is not guaranteed to work. We recommend that you upgrade the Management Agent to the latest version as soon as possible. Using a new Management Agent with an old Management Server is not recommended.

  10. Check that all hosts are correctly upgraded with the new Management Agent version. You can view the Management Agent versions in a graph at Reports → Standard reports → Tectia management system reports → Tectia Management Agent versions.
