We recommend you to use Phoenix portal to upgrade Phoenix agents to the latest versions. For more information, see Agent upgrades.

Before you begin

Ensure the following:

  • You are logged on as a root user to the server having an existing installation of Phoenix agent. 
  • Your server matches the requirements listed in Support Matrix
  • You have downloaded the latest Phoenix agent installer on your server.
    You can download the installer either from Druva downloads page or from the Phoenix Management Console.

Upgrade on CentOS, RHEL, or SLES Linux

  1. Open the command prompt.
  2. Run the following command to find the old package name of the Phoenix installer: 
rpm -qa | grep druva
  1. Run the following command to uninstall the old package:
rpm -e <old_package_name>

rpm –ivh <new_package_name>

where <new_package name> represents the file name (along with the extension) of the new installer.

Note: After an upgrade, Phoenix agent is activated automatically. You do not require a separate Phoenix agent activation.
