1.4. Upgrading the SGD Gateway

This section describes how you upgrade the SGD Gateway.

When you upgrade the SGD Gateway, most of your original configuration, such as routing proxy configuration files is preserved. However, the upgrade process overwrites any self-signed certificates used by the Gateway.

After an upgrade, you must reconfigure the SGD Gateway. Follow the standard configuration steps for authorizing a Gateway to SGD, as described in Section, “How to Install SGD Gateway Certificates on the SGD Array”.

An upgrade log is created at /opt/SUNWsgdg/proxy/var/log/upgrade_oldversion_newversion.log, where oldversion is the old version of the SGD Gateway, and newversion is the upgraded version of the SGD Gateway.

When you upgrade, the SGD Gateway installation program backs up any customized Apache web server files it detects and lists them in the upgrade log. These files have to be manually upgraded. You can use a utility such as diff to compare files and show the changes made.
