This topic describes how to upgrade the Application server and components from versions 10.0 or 10.3 to 10.5.
Perform the following tasks:
Ensure that you are logged as the BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization system or
root user to the host on which you are performing the upgrade.
Advantage of running the installer as root
Root user access is required only to start the installer. After it is started, you can also share the repository by selecting the Shared Repository option. You can specify an existing user (for instance, cpit) instead of using the installer to create a new one. However, if you do not run the installer as root, the Shared Repository option is unavailable.
If you are using a local repository and want to use a shared repository after the upgrade, perform the following steps:
You can also use the procedure outlined in Performing a silent upgrade for performing the upgrade.
All steps marked with are available only if you run the upgrade using the
Define the BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization system user as the owner of the temporary folder created in step 1.
This step is not required if the upgrade is performed using the
Unzip and extract the installation files: In the temporary directory that you created in step 1, unzip and extract the installation archive by using the following commands.
|Command type||Command syntax||Example|
Ensure that the directory permissions are preserved during extraction. This avoids any folder permission related errors when you are installing from a read-only location.
Change the directory: After extracting the installation files, change to the directory where you extracted the install files and then navigate to
Set the DISPLAY environment: Set the DISPLAY environment correctly to enable the Installer wizard to launch.
|The machine has a local graphical console.||Set the DISPLAY environment variable to start the installer UI locally.|
The machine does not have a local graphical console.
|Set the DISPLAY environment variable to export to an XServer on a different workstation.|
Note: On the workstation used to display the UI, provide access grants to every incoming X window. If the workstation is a Linux machine, or running X over a bash shell for Windows, type the command
Run the installation: At the shell prompt, type
./setup.sh and press Enter.
Welcome screen and EULA: In the product installation welcome screen, click Next. Agree to the End User License Agreement (EULA), and click Next.
Directory Selection: On the Directory Selection page, specify the installation directory path where BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization is currently installed or click Browse to select the directory on your system, and then click Next.
$BCO_HOME variable is set, the directory mentioned is displayed by default.
On the page that lists the components that are being upgraded, verify that the list is accurate and click Next.
If you have customized aging configuration and want to use the customized configuration, select Continue to use existing aging configuration. If you want to override any customized configuration and restore it to the default values select Reset aging configuration to default. If you want to modify your customized configuration, select Review aging configuration.
On the Oracle Database Information page, perform one of the following procedures:
|If you are upgrading the First/Primary Application Server||If you are upgrading components other than the Primary Application Server|
HTTPs (Port 8443)
Shared Repository Configuration: Select either of the configuration options, type the details as required, and click Next.
If you do not run the BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization installer as
root, the Shared Repository option is unavailable.
The Content Repository directory needs to be accessed in read/write mode by the web console and Primary Scheduler, and in read-only mode by the web application component. In addition, the BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization user on each computer must have permissions to read, write, and update files in the Content Repository. For users to have the required permissions, the UID of the cpit users must be same across all Application Servers in an environment.
To share the Content Repository between two Application Servers AS1 that is running the web application component, and AS2 that is running the Data hub and Primary scheduler, do the following:
Due to operating system limitations, only NFS mount is supported on Oracle Solaris 10.x.
Select any one of the following options, and enter the required information:
NFS: If you are mounting the repository folder from a network share through Network File Sharing.
The installation program upgrades BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization. A single computer takes up to 45 minutes for upgrade.
