You must be a system administrator to perform the TrueSight App Visibility Manager server components upgrade. When you run the installation wizard on a system with a previous version of the product, the wizard automatically switches to upgrade mode for the installed component or components.

If TrueSight App Visibility Manager server components are installed on separate computers, the portal and collector upgrade processes include the option to enable high availability (HA). For more information about TrueSight App Visibility Manager Manager and HA, see App Visibility Manager high-availability deployment.

To set options for silent upgrade of the App Visibility portal

The procedure describes how to set the options to upgrade the App Visibility portal when it is the only App Visibility server component on the computer.

 Click here to expand the steps.
  1. On the computer where you want to upgrade the App Visibility portal, extract the downloaded files to a temporary directory.
  2. Open the downloaded options file in a text editor:

    • (Windows)   adop-silent-option-upgrade.txt
    • (Linux)   adop-silent-option-upgrade
  3. (For upgrade to high-availability)

    • If you do not want to set up your environment for HA, save and close the upgrade options file without change.
    • If your environment is already set up for HA, add a value for the ha_node_synchronization_port.
      The port synchronizes data between the current and alternate nodes and is dedicated for communication between the nodes.
      The port must be the same number on the current and alternate nodes.
      The default value is 5701.

    • To set up an HA environment, set ha_enabled to true and enter values for the current portal and alternate portal.

      The following example displays values for a portal in an HA environment.

      -J ha_enabled=true
      -J ha_current_node_fqdn=myPortalA.bmc.com
      -J ha_alternate_node_fqdn=myPortalB.bmc.com

To set options for silent upgrade of an App Visibility proxy

The procedure describes how to set the options to upgrade an App Visibility proxy when it is the only App Visibility server component on the computer.

 Click here to expand the steps.

Note

The upgrade process includes several checks for connectivity to the App Visibility portal and to other App Visibility proxy servers and storage engines. The process cannot continue until the connectivity and cluster issues are resolved, unless you explicitly run the installation utility with a command to continue with such errors.

If you want to upgrade the proxy without testing connectivity (not recommended), run the utility from a command line with the -J continue_with_connectivity_error=true parameter.

At your own risk, you will have to resolve connectivity and cluster issues after the upgrade process, and restart all the cluster nodes for the storage engines.

  1. On the computer where you want to upgrade an App Visibility proxy, extract the downloaded files to a temporary directory.
  2. Open the downloaded options file in a text editor:

    • (Windows)  adop-silent-option-upgrade.txt
    • (Linux)  adop-silent-option-upgrade
  3. Enter values for the proxy storage:

    -J proxy_storage_http_port=8302
    -J proxy_storage_transport_port=8303
    -J proxy_storage_transport_ip=192.0.2.24

    Parameter descriptions for the proxy storage

    Parameter

    Description

    proxy_storage_http_port

    Listening port of the App Visibility proxy database

    The default port is 8302.

    proxy_storage_transport_port

    Port for TCP communication between App Visibility proxy database nodes in a cluster

    The default port is 8303.

    proxy_storage_transport_ip

    Used for communication between the different nodes in the storage cluster

    The IP address must be available from other App Visibility proxy nodes.

    If you do not provide a value, the default IP address is the first received by the system.

  4. If necessary, update the App Visibility portal connection information.

    For example, if you are upgrading to an HA environment from an environment that is not HA, enter the IP address and port number of the load balancing server for the App Visibility portal.

    -J portal_ip=
    -J portal_communication_port=

    Parameter

    Description

    portal_ip

    App Visibility portal host name or IP address

    If a load balancing server manages access to the portal, enter the host name or IP address of the load balancer.

    portal_communication_port


    Listening port of the portal

    If a load balancing server manages access to the portal, enter the port number for the load balancer.

  5. Save and close the upgrade options file.


To upgrade the App Visibility server silently

  1. In a command line window, navigate to the directory with the silent-option-upgrade file.
  2. To run the silent upgrade, enter the following command:
    • Windows

      setup.exe -i silent -DOPTIONS_FILE=<fullFilePath>\adop-silent-option-upgrade.txt
    • Linux

      ./setup.bin -i silent -DOPTIONS_FILE=<fullFilePath>/adop-silent-option-upgrade

If the upgrade is successful, an indication is displayed in the command window.

Troubleshooting upgrade issues

  • If the upgrade fails, you must uninstall what has been installed before rerunning the installation wizard. For more information about the uninstall process, see Uninstalling the App Visibility server.

  • You can examine the App Visibility server log files located in the following directories:

    • (Windows) %temp%\adopserver_install_log.txt
    • (Linux) /tmp/adopserver_install_log.txt

Next step in the Upgrading process

Step 5 Phase B Task 1 — Now that you have successfully installed the App Visibility server, you must upgrade the applicable App Visibility agents.
