FlashGrid Server Update package is a single self-extracting bash script file that allows updating the following components:
- FlashGrid Storage Fabric RPM
- FlashGrid Diagnostics RPM
- FlashGrid Cloud Area Network RPM
- FlashGrid Health Checker RPM
Using this package makes it easier to have the update performed to the latest validated set of software components and helps avoid accidental installation of incompatible software versions.
To update software using FlashGrid Server Update package, perform the following steps
Create backup snapshot of the OS disk
a. Flush OS buffers:
# sync; sync;
b. Create snapshot of the OS disk using the cloud console or CLI.
Stop all running databases.
Stop Oracle High Availability Services:
# crsctl stop has
Stop the FlashGrid Diagnostics monitoring service:
# systemctl stop flashgrid-node-monitor
Stop the FlashGrid Storage Fabric services:
# flashgrid-node stop
Stop the FlashGrid Cloud Area Network service:
# systemctl stop flashgrid-clan
Run the update script as root.
# bash flashgrid_cluster_node_update-X.Y.Z.NNNNN.sh
Flush the OS buffers and reboot the server:
# sync; sync; reboot
After the software update is complete, upload diags to FlashGrid support. This will allow FlashGrid support to have up-to-date records of the software versions used on your systems.
