Upgrade Orchestrator Software

Orchestrator > Software & Setup > Upgrade > Upgrade Orchestrator

If you are already using Orchestrator 8.6.0 or later and want to upgrade to a newer version, complete the following procedure.

WARNING: An upgrade that fails can put Orchestrator into a corrupt state. Be sure to back up Orchestrator before you start the upgrade process.

  1. Open an SSH session to the Orchestrator.

  2. Log in as admin or a user with administrative privileges.

  3. Switch to root:
    su - root

  4. Enter the root password when prompted. If you do not know your root password, contact Support.

  5. Change to the /home directory:
    cd /home

Depending on your environment, you can upgrade Orchestrator in either of the following ways:

Upgrade via HTTP

If you have an HTTP URL to the Orchestrator installation file, enter the following in the existing SSH console to run the install script and point it to the hosted installation file:

/home/gms/gms/setup/ <HTTP URL of the Orchestrator Installation File>

NOTE: The upgrade process can take several hours to complete.

Upgrade via SCP

If you do not have an HTTP server, copy the installation file to Orchestrator by using SCP, run the install script, and point it to the local installation file:

NOTE: This procedure assumes that the scp programs on both ends are patched for CVE-2020-15778 and/or you trust the remote server from which you will scp the installation file.

  1. From the Orchestrator SSH console, enter the following as root:
    mv /bin/scp-local /bin/scp #

  2. From your local PC console, enter the following:
    scp <Orchestrator Installation file> admin@<orchestrator_ip_address>:/home/gms

  3. From the Orchestrator SSH console, enter the following:
    /home/gms/gms/setup/ /home/gms/<Orchestrator Installation file>

NOTE: The upgrade process can take several hours to complete.
