Upgrade Procedure

The procedure documented below applies to Service Registry instances residing locally on the computer where the upgrade is taking place.

ProcedureTo Upgrade Service Registry to Java ES 5 Update 1

  1. Log in as administrator.

  2. Stop the Service Registry (Application Server) domain.

    ServiceRegistryR5–base\install\ant -f build-install.xml appserver.domain.stop

  3. Make sure you have upgraded any Java ES components upon which Service Registry has hard upgrade dependencies (see Upgrade Service Registry Dependencies).

  4. Obtain the required Service Registry Release 5U1 upgrade patches, based on Table 10–3.

  5. Install the patch.

    Installation is generally performed by running patch-id.exe, however, be sure to consult the README.patch-id file in the patch directory for installation instructions.

    Note –

    If you are prompted to restart the system, select No. Wait till the patch installation process is completed and then restart and re-login as the same user to complete the patch installation.

  6. Verify the patch log file.

    The log file is found at: %TEMP%\SUNJAVAES_<patch-id>.log

  7. Verify the patch installation with the utility ListJavaESPatches.exe.

    Run ListJavaESPatches.exe and check that the output includes the patch id of the patch that you have installed in Step 5. For more information, see Identifying Installed Java ES Patches.

    ant -f build-install.xml
