Upgrading to CTA 10.0 SP2 from 10.0

Hi Guys,

Anyone has upgraded to CTA 10.0 SP2 from 10.0  ? I have a document  300-012-868 , However, which is bit vague for me.

Since my environment is not VM  (the download file is ova extension). Can someone help  ?

Re: Upgrading to CTA 10.0 SP2 from 10.0

Hi Althaf,

I upgraded my 10.0 SP2 to 10.0 SP3 today. In my Case I had a ".upg"-file to download in support.emc.com.

I looked up your version as well:

https://support.emc.com/downloads/6298_Cloud-Tiering-Appliance

Then "Downloads

Then "Product Tool"

You one is called Cloud Tiering Appliance 10.0 SP2 UPG

I would recommend upgrading from 10.0 to 10.0 SP3 though as it is available by now:

There seems to be no special Upgrade documentation for the physical CTA so you can use the combined documentation material:

Cloud Tiering Appliance and Cloud Tiering Appliance/VE 10.0 SP3 Upgrade Guide


Basic steps for upgrading Cloud Tiering Appliance (also VE):

  2. login via SSH
    1. Press 5 for CLI
    2. filemanagement stop
    3. fmbackup
    4. filemanagement start
  3. copy backup file (for example "fmbackup_10.0sp2_vCTA-1.Mon_07-09-15_12_30.tgz") from /var to a remote site (for example with WinSCP) as backup
  4. Next commands for SSH:
    1. filemanagement stop
    2. /opt/rainfinity/filemanagement/bin/rfupgrade /var/cta-10.0-325SP3.x86_64.upg
    3. if it says "*** You must reboot your CTA..." type reboot
  5. System reboots
  6. Checks if upgrade process was successful (CLI):
    1. celerracallback status
    2. atmoscallback status
    3. fpolicycallback status
    4. (At least the ones you are using should be running)
    5. psql rffm rffm -c "select * from file_management.rffm_version;"
      1. Output should be like that:
        1. version
        2. ---------
