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.

  1. Download the current version of the IGEL Universal Management Suite from the IGEL Download Server.
  2. Log on as root.

    You will need root rights for the computer in order to install the UMS.

  3. 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.
  4. Check whether the installation file is executable. You can make the installation file executable with the following command:

    chmod a+x setup*.bin

  5. Execute the installation file.
  6. 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.

  7. Read and confirm the license agreement.
  8. Read the explanation of the installation process.
  9. Select an installation path for the update.
  10. 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.
  11. Under Installation Type, select the scope of installation:
  12. Select the Runlevels in which the UMS server is to run.
  13. Specify whether you would like to create shortcuts for the UMS console and UMS administrator.
  14. Check the summary of the installation settings and start the procedure by selecting start installation.
  15. Launch the UMS console via the menu entry or with the command /opt/IGEL/RemoteManager/RemoteManager.sh
  16. Connect the UMS console to the server with the help of the existing access data.
