Upgrading components using the local option on UNIX or Linux

If a BMC Server Automation component was installed with the -local option, you must use the -local option to upgrade that component. However, you must set several environment variables before starting the upgrade process.

Note

To determine whether the -local option was used during installation and is necessary for upgrade, examine the installation directories. If the HOME file is located in the <installDir>/NSH/conf/ directory, and not in the /etc/rsc/ directory, this indicates that the -local option was used. 

 For more general information about the upgrade process, see Upgrading product components on Linux and UNIX.

To upgrade using the local option

  1. Before invoking the installer for the upgrade process, set several environment variables using the following commands.

    INSTALL_DIR="<installDir>"
    NSHDIR=${INSTALL_DIR}/NSH
    LD_LIBRARY_PATH=${LD_LIBRARY_PATH:=}${LD_LIBRARY_PATH:+:}${NSHDIR}/lib
    export INSTALL_DIR NSHDIR LD_LIBRARY_PATH
  2. Invoke the installer using a command such as the following:
    sh BBSA-LIN64.sh -local
  3. Continue with the upgrade process as described in Upgrading product components on Linux and UNIX.

     

To upgrade silently using the local option

You can run a silent upgrade in combination with the with the -local option. You must first set several environment variables, and then invoke the installer, as shown in the following series of commands.

INSTALL_DIR="<install>"
NSHDIR=${INSTALL_DIR}/NSH
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=${LD_LIBRARY_PATH:=}${LD_LIBRARY_PATH:+:}${NSHDIR}/lib
export INSTALL_DIR NSHDIR LD_LIBRARY_PATH
sh BBSA-LIN64.sh -local -silent
