    To upgrade the Presentation Server silently in a high availability deployment

    1. Go to the computer on which the existing version of the secondary Presentation Server is installed and open a CLI command prompt.
    2. Navigate to the (WindowsTrueSightPServer\truesightpserver\bin or (LinuxTrueSightPServer/truesightpserver/bin directory and run the following command to stop the secondary server:

      tssh server stop secondary 
    3. Go to the computer on which the existing version of the primary Presentation Server is installed and perform steps 1 to 3 to upgrade the primary Presentation Server silently.
    4. (Applies only if you configured high-availability post installation in an earlier release) Go to the secondary computer and perform the following steps:

      1. Edit the TrueSightPServer\TrueSightPServerInstalledConfiguration.xml file.

      2. Locate and change the following property values. If these properties are not present, add them.

        <property>   
        <name>TrueSight_high_availability_enabled</name>   
        <value>1</value>   
        </property>   
          
        <property>   
        <name>TrueSight_high_availability_type</name>   
        <value>2</value>   
        </property>   
          
        <property>   
        <name>TrueSight_high_availability_configuration_file</name>   
        <value>ha-shared.conf_FileLocation<value/>   
        </property> 

        In the preceding properties, ensure that the value is set as follows:

        • TrueSight_high_availability_enabled: Indicates whether high availability is enabled. Value must be set to 1.

        • TrueSight_high_availability_type: Indicates the type of server - primary or secondary. Value must be set to 2.

        • TrueSight_high_availability_configuration_file: Specify the complete location path of the ha-shared.conf file copied from the primary server.

    5. On the secondary computer, perform steps 1 to 3 to upgrade the secondary Presentation Server silently.
