    Before you begin

    To provide required permissions to non-root users on Linux

    On Linux computers, you can upgrade the Presentation Server only as a non-root user. Though the non-root user may already have ownership permissions for the destination directory, you must provide ownership permissions for the executables to the non-root user. 

    1. Log on as a root user.
    2. Provide ownership permissions to non-root users for all installation files by running the following command: 

      chown -R nonrootuser installationDirectoryFolderName

      nonrootuser is the name of the non-root user.
      installationDirectoryFolderName
       is the name of the folder that contains the installation files. 

      For example,  chown -R nonrootuser /Linux/Disk1

    3. Apply executable rights to the installation files by running the following command:

      chmod -R 755 installationDirectoryFolderName

      For example, chmod -R 755 Disk1 

    To apply feature packs or fix packs on the Presentation Server

    1. Launch the installation wizard:
      • (Windows) Navigate to Windows\Disk1 and double-click setup.exe.

      • (Linux) As a non-root user, navigate to Linux/Disk1 and run ./install.sh.

        Note

        Ensure that you have set the DISPLAY environment variable.

    2. On the Welcome page, click Next.
    3. On the License Agreement page, read the agreement and select the I agree to the terms of the license agreement option, and click Next
      If you do not agree to the terms of the license agreement, the installation process will not continue.
    4. On the Upgrade Confirmation page, select Yes, and click Next.
      The installer automatically verifies the upgrade requirements. If it finds any errors, it displays them in the next screen. You can quit the upgrade process at this point, correct the indicated discrepancies, and then rerun the upgrade.

      Important

      After you confirm, the Presentation Server is stopped temporarily and is started automatically after applying the feature pack or fix pack.

    5. Verify that the information on the Installation Preview page reflects your upgrade correctly. Click Previous to make changes, or click Install.
      The installer configures the Presentation Server and starts the installation process. This might take some time. After the installation, the Installation Summary dialog box displays a summary of the installation. 
      To view the installation logs, click View Log.
    6. Click Done to exit the installation wizard.
    7. (Optional) If you have configured a proxy or DNS alias to access the Presentation Server, perform the following steps: 
       

      1. In a text editor, edit the <Presentation Server installation directory>\truesightpserver\modules\tomcat\conf\web.xml file.
        Comment out the CSRF (Cross site request forgery) Header Referer Check Filter section so that it reads as follows:
         

        <!-- Start : CSRF (Cross site request forgery) Header Referer Check Filter -->
        <!--
        	<filter>
        		<filter-name>CSRFHeaderRefererCheckFilter</filter-name>
        		<filter-class>com.bmc.truesight.secure.csrf.CSRFHeaderRefererCheckFilter</filter-class>         
        	</filter>
        	<filter-mapping>
        		<filter-name>CSRFHeaderRefererCheckFilter</filter-name>
        		<url-pattern>/*</url-pattern>
        	</filter-mapping>
        -->
        <!-- End : CSRF(Cross site request forgery) Header Referer Check Filter -->


      2. Run the following commands from the InstalledDirectory\bin folder to restart the Presentation Server:
        tssh server stop
        tssh server start 
          

        Note

        On Linux, run the commands as the non-root user that initially installed the Presentation Server.

    To apply feature packs or fix packs on the Presentation Server in a high availability deployment

    1. On the secondary Presentation Server, run the following command from the InstalledDirectory\bin folder.  
      tssh server stop
       

      Note

      On Linux, run the command as the non-root user that initially installed the Presentation Server.


    2. On the primary Presentation Server, perform the following steps:
      1. Perform steps 1–7 of To apply feature packs or fix packs on the Presentation Server.
      2.  If you have configured a load balancer for high availability, perform the following steps:  
        1. In a text editor, edit the <Presentation Server installation directory>\truesightpserver\modules\tomcat\conf\web.xml file.
           Comment out the CSRF (Cross site request forgery) Header Referer Check Filter section so that it reads as follows: 

          <!-- Start : CSRF (Cross site request forgery) Header Referer Check Filter -->

          	</filter>
          	<filter-mapping>
          		<filter-name>CSRFHeaderRefererCheckFilter</filter-name>
          		<url-pattern>/*</url-pattern>
          	</filter-mapping>
          -->
          <!-- End : CSRF(Cross site request forgery) Header Referer Check Filter -->

      1.  Perform steps 1–7 of To apply feature packs or fix packs on the Presentation Server 

      2.  If you have not configured a load balancer for high availability, proceed to step c.
         If you have configured a load balancer for high availability, perform the following step:
         Comment out the CSRF (Cross site request forgery) Header Referer Check Filter section so that it reads as follows.
         

        <!-- Start : CSRF (Cross site request forgery) Header Referer Check Filter -->
        <!--
        	<filter>
        		<filter-name>CSRFHeaderRefererCheckFilter</filter-name>
        		<filter-class>com.bmc.truesight.secure.csrf.CSRFHeaderRefererCheckFilter</filter-class>         
        	</filter>
