When a vFabric component releases a new maintenance version, the
appropriate VMware YUM repository is updated to include the new RPM, and
you can use
yum to quickly upgrade the component.
If appropriate, stop the vFabric component.
For example, to stop a tc Runtime instance called
su to become the
tc-server user and run the following commands:
prompt$ cd /opt/vmware/vfabric-tc-server-standard prompt$ ./tcruntime-ctl.sh myserver stop
See the specific vFabric component documentation for details about stopping a component or an instance of a component.
On the RHEL VM on which you are going to upgrade the vFabric
component, start a terminal either as the
root user or as
an unprivileged user using
Execute the appropriate
command to upgrade the
vFabric component, where component is name of the
RPM package for the component.
For the exact name of each RPM, see Important Information About
Installing Using RPMs, or use the output of
yum search vfabric.
For example, to upgrade vFabric tc Server:
prompt# yum upgrade vfabric-tc-server-standard
upgrade command shown in the preceding examples upgrades the
vFabric component to the most recent RPM it finds in
all repositories the
knows about. If you want to upgrade to a version that is not the most
recent, then you must explicitly specify the version on the
upgrade command line. Use
to find all versions of a component in all repositories. For example,
to explicitly upgrade to version 2.6.2 of tc Server:
prompt# yum search vfabric-tc-server-standard --showduplicates ===================== Matched: vfabric-tc-server-standard ====================== vfabric-tc-server-standard-2.6.0-RELEASE.noarch : VMWare vFabric tc Server Standard vfabric-tc-server-standard-2.6.1-RELEASE.noarch : VMWare vFabric tc Server Standard vfabric-tc-server-standard-2.6.2-RELEASE.noarch : VMWare vFabric tc Server Standard prompt# yum upgrade vfabric-tc-server-standard-2.6.2-RELEASE
y at the prompt to begin the actual upgrade.
Depending on the component, you may be asked additional questions;
answer as appropriate. If you need more detailed information, see the
If the upgrade is successful, you will see a
Complete! message at the end.
The next steps depend on the specific component you upgraded.
If you upgraded tc Server, then
you will likely want to upgrade specific tc Runtime instances. To
myserver instance to tc Runtime
su to the
and run the following commands:
prompt$ cd /opt/vmware/vfabric-tc-server-standard prompt$ ./tcruntime-instance.sh upgrade -v 7.0.22.A.RELEASE myserver prompt$ ./tcruntime-ctl.sh myserver start
See the specific component documentation for additional details about the next steps after upgrading the component.
