    Upgrading the System 5

  • OverviewThis guide applies to binary-only installations of 3.6.x, mixed/vApp installations ofversion 3.6.4 or higher, and any installation of 3.7.x or 4.0.

    If you are upgrading a vApp or mixed deployment of 3.6.3 or lower, refer to EMC ViPRSRM: Upgrading version 3.6.1, 3.6.2, or 3.6.3 to 4.0.

    Note

    If you are upgrading a vApp deployment, you may need to run a script before startingthe upgrade process. Refer to Knowledgebase article 000489632 for moreinformation.

    If you want to update a single SolutionPack to receive the benefit of a required fix orfeature, refer to the Updating SolutionPacks and Other Components chapter of theadmin guide.

    Required toolsEnsure that you have the necessary tools.

    l WinSCP or equivalent

    l Putty/SSH

    l Remote Desktop

    Required credentialsGather the necessary credentials.

    l root/administrator credentials for all of the ViPR SRM servers

  • Note

    The Topology-Mapping-Service module, by default, is configured with 2GB max heap.For those installed on the Frontend and Backend hosts, actual maximum consumptionis under 128MB. The additional memory need not be considered for sizing calculations.The Topology-Mapping-Service installed on the Collector host should have its full 2GBmax heap considered.

    Procedure

    1. Look for blank reports and graphs. Determine if there are any blank reportscaused by collection errors. Resolve any issues or document them for laterfollow up.

    2. Look for broken links and resolve any issues or document them for later followup.

    3. Validate that topology is working. Resolve any issues.

    4. Review the existing backends and databases. Check Report Library > EMCM&R Health > Logical Summary > Backends > Components > Backends andReport Library > EMC M&R Health > Logical Summary > Backends >Components > Databases.

    l Check backend thresholds to verify that you have room to accommodatenew sizing.

    l Add additional backends and databases as required.

    5. Ensure that there is 5 GB available on the files systems where ViPR SRM isinstalled. Check Report Library > EMC M&R Health > Misc. Reports > DailyDashboard > File Systems.

    6. Review and document any customizations.

    For example:

    l Polling intervals

    l Timeout values

    7. Verify that all of the services are running on each host by checking CentralizedManagement > Phyical Ove
