Updating under Linux
To perform an update under Linux, proceed as follows:
Create a backup of the database before updating a previously installed version of the UMS. Otherwise, you risk losing all database content.
- Download the current version of the IGEL Universal Management Suite from the IGEL Download Server.
- Log on as root.
You will need root rights for the computer in order to install the UMS.
- Open a terminal window, e. g. xterm and switch to the directory in which the installation file setup-igel-ums-linux-[Version].bin is located.
- Check whether the installation file is executable. You can make the installation file executable with the following command:
chmod a+x setup*.bin
- Execute the installation file.
- The installer will be unpacked to /tmp, will run its Java Engine and will remove itself again once the installation is complete.
You can cancel the installation at any time by pressing the Esc key twice.
- Read and confirm the license agreement.
- Read the explanation of the installation process.
- Select an installation path for the update.
- Select a directory path and a file name for the backup of the existing UMS database (recommended). This dialog is shown if an embedded database was used.
- Under Installation Type, select the scope of installation:
- Complete: UMS server and UMS console
- Client only: UMS console only
- HA net: High Availability configuration (requires a license)
- Select the Runlevels in which the UMS server is to run.
- Specify whether you would like to create shortcuts for the UMS console and UMS administrator.
- Check the summary of the installation settings and start the procedure by selecting start installation.
- Launch the UMS console via the menu entry or with the command /opt/IGEL/RemoteManager/RemoteManager.sh
- Connect the UMS console to the server with the help of the existing access data.
