Upgrade procedure

Upgrading from version 5.2 and later

You can upgrade directly from version 5.2, 5.2.1, or 5.2.2 of inSync Private Cloud. To upgrade, follow the procedure described in this table.

Operating Systems Instructions
Windows Run the 5.3.1 storage node and master server installers on existing installations of storage node and master server respectively. Make sure you upgrade all storage nodes before upgrading the master server.
Linux (RHEL-based)

Run the 5.3.1 storage node and master server installation packages on existing installations of storage node and master server respectively. Make sure you upgrade all storage nodes before upgrading the master server.

While upgrading, run the following command from the directory in which the RPM package resides:

rpm -Uvh <package_name>
Linux (Debian-based)

Run the 5.3.1 storage node and master server installation packages on existing installations of storage node and master server respectively. Make sure you upgrade all storage nodes before upgrading the master server.

While upgrading, run the following command from the directory in which the DEB package resides:

sudo dpkg -i <package_name>
Note: The 5.3.1 Master server installer also creates a local storage node on the same computer. The behavior of this storage node is identical to the behavior of storage nodes that you create manually. 

Upgrading from versions prior to 5.2

To upgrade to inSync Private Cloud 5.3.1 from a version earlier than 5.2, first uninstall the storage node or the master server and then install the latest version. Make sure you upgrade all storage nodes before upgrading the master server.

Note: After uninstallation, do not delete the folders created by inSync on the storage nodes or the master server. This will ensure that you do not loose your inSync data or inSync configuration during upgrade.

Uninstalling is necessary because the of changes to service names in the latest version. 

 

To upgrade to version 5.3.1 on an Ubuntu computer on which the inSync master server and one inSync storage node are installed, use the following command:

sudo dpkg --force-overwrite -i <package name of Master Server/Storage Node>

 

Note: While upgrading the inSync master server, you might encounter an error that asks you to check the inSyncSrvCfg.exe.log file. Ignore this error.
