Upgrade of Virtual Appliance

LPAR2RRD and STOR2RRD Virtual Appliance can be upgraded in 2 ways.
  1. Directly from the UI (it works only if v4.84+ already running on the appliance).
    LPAR2RRD VMware Virtual Appliance upgrade
    • Open the UI and navigate to item "LPAR2RRD"
    • Open sub item "Product upgrade"
    • Download LPAR2RRD installation package and upload it into the provided form
    • Select "run data load"
    • It is all, wait a bit and then reload the UI via Ctrl-F5, upgrade will be done automatically on the background
    If this fails for any reason then use manual installation via command line.

  2. Manually via the product package upgrade, download lpar2rrd-5.XX.tar package and follow standard package upgrade

Operating System upgrade

Operating system patching, security stuff etc is about your company's policies.
Do whatever is necessary on the appliance like upgrade operation system, apply security patches etc.
We provide minimal CentOS operating system to work with our tools.
