Upgrading Hitachi Infrastructure Analitics Advisor(HIAA) in UCP CI

Blog Post created by Koji Watanabe Employee on Feb 5, 2018

Software is often improved by providing version up software. Of cause, Hitachi provides software version-up.

So far, I have used the combination solution of HIAA and UCP CI. UCPandHIAA.jpg

I determined to install HIAA 3.2 instead of 3.1. HIAA provides scripts for no hustle upgrading. Let me show you overview of upgrading version3.1 to 3.2 in my case.

(Please follow the procedure which provided in the User Guide when you perform to upgrade your system.)

Upgrade installers are provided for both Windows and Linux environment. I am going to introduce the workflow for Linux host.

 

0. Overview of upgrading process

There are four steps in upgrading process.

1. Copying the files

You need to obtain the software media. Then, the files should be copied to the host. I copied the files using scp. You can any way to copy the files.

 

Type these command on the laptop.

#scp -r /mount-point/ANALYTICS root@HDCA_host:/root/

#scp -r /mount-point/DCAPROBE root@probe_host:/root/

2. Stop Service and backup configuration

Don't forget to backup the settings of your environment. Please refer the users guide how to stop HIAA/HDCA/Probe server services.

To back up HIAA server, backupsystem command is available. This command copy the configuration files. You also need to copy some other files in HDCA server and Probe server. User guides mention which files should be copied.

 

3. Run scripts

Here we go. It is time to run upgrading scripts.

3.1 HIAA/HDCA server

Before running upgrade, you must save the certification file. Please follow the detailed instruction in the user guide.

Then, run the upgrade scripts.

# cd /root/ANALYTICS    (Destination directory which you put files in section1.)

# ./analytics_install.sh VUP

Wait until some message come up on screen.

 

3.2 Probe server

Before running upgrade, you must save the certification file. Please follow the detailed instruction in the user guide.

Then, run the upgrade scripts.

# cd /root/DCAPROBE    (Destination directory which you put files in section1.)

# ./dcaprobe_install.sh VUP

Wait until some message come up on screen

 

4. Post upgrade

After finish the all upgrade process, you can access HIAA website. But before you access, please remember clearing the browser cache.

 

These are all step that I did. If you perform upgrade please read carefully and follow the steps in the user guide.

For your reference, I introduce some links.
