Chapter 6 Upgrading the Oracle Linux Storage Appliance Version

This chapter describes how to upgrade the Oracle Linux Storage Appliance version.

6.1 Upgrading From Version 1.7.1 to Version 1.8 of the Oracle Linux Storage Appliance

To enable Active Directory support after you upgrade from version 1.7.1 to version 1.8, all of the SMB exports that are present on the system must be updated.

For each SMB export on the system, do the following:

  1. Launch the web interface for the Oracle Linux Storage Appliance.

  2. On the Storage page, select the SMB export to modify, then from the Actions drop-down list, select View/Modify.

  3. Under Export Protocols, change the name of the SMB export using the SMB share name field.

  4. Click Modify to validate the change.

  5. Open the View/Modify dialog box for the SMB export again, then revert the change that you made in Step 3.

  6. Click Modify to validate the change.

6.2 Upgrading the Oracle Linux Storage Appliance From Version 1 to Version 2

Important
  • The Oracle Linux Storage Appliance does not provide a way to upgrade from version 1 to version 2; or from an Oracle Linux version to an Oracle Autonomous Linux version of the appliance. The workaround is to migrate the appliance instance.

  • Before migrating an appliance instance, be sure to back up the existing appliance instance, including the Samba global settings, ssh keys and OCI service access configuration on the Administration page, which are not included in the migration process.

To migrate the Oracle Linux Storage Appliance from version 1 to version 2, follow these steps:

  1. Create a new Compute instance based on the latest 2.x version of the Oracle Linux Storage Appliance . For more information, see Section 2.2, “Launching an Oracle Linux Storage Appliance Compute Instance” .

  2. Migrate the existing appliance instance to a Compute instance that is running version 2.x. For more information, see Chapter 5, Migrating Appliance Instances.
