To upgrade Tectia Manager that is using the Sybase database, follow the instructions below:
Log in as the root user.
Stop the Management Server:
# /etc/init.d/ssh-mgmt-server stop
Download the Management Server installation package to a temporary directory of your choice.
To install the latest Management Server software:
On Linux, run command:
# rpm --upgrade ssh-mgmt-server-<v>-linux-x86.rpm
In the command,
<v> is the current release
version of the Management Server (for example
On Solaris, uncompress the installation package, and run the upgrade commands:
# cp /cdrom/install/solaris/ssh-mgmt-server-<v>-solaris-8-10-sparc.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
Start the Management Server:
# /etc/init.d/ssh-mgmt-server start
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.
Wait for the database update to finish (may take a few minutes) and login to the Management Server.
In case of problems, check the system syslog for possible error
messages. An environment that is running correctly should always have the
Management Database process and the Management Server processes (
The process listing should have the following processes after a while:
# ps -def | grep ssh-mgmt root 1503 1 0 09:42 ? 00:00:00 ssh-mgmt-server sshmgmt 1504 1503 4 09:42 ? 00:00:10 ssh-mgmt-engine sshmgmt 1530 1 0 09:42 ? 00:00:01 dbeng8 -ga -x none -n ssh-mgmt
Check that the following syslog messages appear:
# tail -f /var/log/messages | grep ssh-mgmt-engine ssh-mgmt-engine: Database update finished. ssh-mgmt-engine: Tectia Manager restarted
Import the license file for Tectia Manager from the installation file directory. In the Tectia Manager administration interface, select Software → Licenses → Import license and choose the appropriate license for Tectia Manager.
After the license has been successfully imported, log out and restart the Management Server to activate the new features.
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.
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.
