Sun N1 System Manager 1.3 Installation and Configuration Guide

ProcedureTo Upgrade the Sun N1 System Manager Software

Before You Begin

Back up your N1 System Manager installation as described in Chapter 3, Backing Up and Restoring, in Sun N1 System Manager 1.3 Discovery and Administration Guide.

Steps
  1. Log in as root to the N1 System Manager management server.

  2. Stop all N1 System Manager processes.

    • On a Solaris management server, type svcadm disable n1sm

    • On a Linux management server, type /etc/init.d/n1sminit stop

    Wait for all N1 System Manager processes to stop.

  3. Change directory to the N1 System Manager installation source.

    If you are installing from the N1 System Manager DVD, change directory as follows.

    • Solaris SPARC-based management server:


      # cd /cdrom/n1_system_mngr/Solaris_sparc/Product/installer
      
    • Solaris x86-based management server:


      # cd /cdrom/n1_system_mngr/Solaris_x86/Product/installer
      
    • Linux x86-based management server:


      # cd /cdrom/n1_system_mngr/Linux_x86/Product/installer
      

    If you are installing from an N1 System Manager installation ISO image, substitute your mount point directory name for /cdrom in the path names.

  4. Type ./install -u to start the upgrade installation process

    The Software Evaluation Agreement appears.

  5. Choose whether to accept the agreement and continue installation.

    Read the agreement carefully. Type y to continue installation, or type n to exit the installation.

    When you continue the upgrade, the upgrade script checks for required Perl modules. When this process completes, the upgrade process then checks the component versions on the management server against the application versions in the N1 System Manager 1.3 installation media. The N1SM Installer upgrade menu then appears, listing which components are up to date, and for which components an upgrade is available.

    The appearance of the N1SM Upgrade menu, and the list of components to be upgraded depends on the operating system installed on the management server as shown by the following examples.

    • Solaris 10 Based Management Server


                N1SM Upgrade (version 1.2 to 1.3 on SunOS)
      
       1. Install IPMI tool.                            [Up to Date]
       2. Install JDK 1.5.                              [Up To Date]
       3. Install service provisioning components.      [Upgrade Available]
       4. Install OS provisioning components.           [Upgrade Available]
       5. Install user interface components.            [Upgrade Available]
       6. Install service container components.         [Up to Date]
       7. Install N1 System Manager.                    [Upgrade Available]
      
      
      Non-interactive install in progress
      
      Executing current step:  Install OS packages...
    • Linux Based Management Server


                      N1SM Upgrade (version 1.2 to 1.3 on Linux)
      
       1. Install IPMI tool.                            [Up To Date]
       2. Install JDK 1.5.                              [Up To Date]
       3. Install Python.                               [Up To Date]
       4. Install service provisioning components.      [Upgrade Available]
       5. Install OS provisioning components.           [Upgrade Available]
       6. Install user interface components.            [Upgrade Available]
       7. Install service container components.         [Up To Date]
       8. Install N1 System Manager.                    [Upgrade Available]
      
      
      Non-interactive upgrade in progress.
      
      Executing current step:  Install IPMI tool...

    The installation process runs each step in sequence. When a step completes successfully, the status of the step is changed to [Up to Date].

    If a step fails, you are notified, and the status remains [Upgrade Available] or is changed to [Partially Run]. Exit the installation process and examine the log file /var/tmp/installer.log.latest to determine the cause of the failure. Correct the problem and then run the upgrade process again.

    When the upgrade process completes, all running N1 System Manager processes are stopped and restarted, and then you are informed that the N1 System Manager upgrade process is complete.

    The installation process then exits. You are prompted to run the n1smconfig utility. N1 System Manager 1.3 provides several new features that must be configured before you restart the N1 System Manager. Run n1smconfig as directed in Configuring the N1 System Manager.

Next Steps

Remove the N1 System Manager Version 1.2 n1gc account as described in the next section.
