This topic describes how to use the GUI installation to upgrade a lightweight activity peer (LAP).
Before you begin
- You must have upgraded the primary configuration distribution peer (CDP).
- If you are using an external Remedy Single Sign-On instance, it must be installed and running.
- The repository and the primary CDP must be running.
- You must have shut down the LAP service (see Starting and stopping product components and services).
- You must have downloaded the installation files from the BMC EPD website.
- You must have completed the LAP worksheet for upgrades from 7.6.03.
- You must be logged on as an administrator and have administrator rights on the computer where you will upgrade the LAP.
- If you are installing on a Windows computer, ensure that Data Execution Prevention (DEP) is configured to recognize the installation program executable (see Configuring DEP on Windows computers before upgrades).
- Ensure that you have made copies of server.xml and broker-config.xml files and stored them in a safe location (see Backing up server.xml and broker-config.xml files).
- If you are upgrading on a Linux computer, run the rngd service to ensure that the system has adequate entropy (Run the rngd service on Linux computers before upgrades).
- You must have exited all other programs.
