Upgrade OME from 3.0 to 3.1?

Jump to solution

Hi.

We have OpenManage Enterprise 3.0.0 installed. 

I see that OME v3.1 is out (

<ADMIN NOTE: Broken link has been removed from this post by Dell>

 but it seems to be a OVF install only, not an update package?

Will there be a upgrade iso or something? I don't see any update if I go to Application Settings > Console Update.

I have it set to Automatic Check and Online (repo). Does anyone know which online url it's trying to connect to, so I can troubleshoot possible connection issues?

Isn't there a way to ssh into the appliance to do some local troubleshooting?

Hi Joffer77

I covered the URL location in a previous post on here:

https://www.dell.com/community/Dell-OpenManage-Enterprise/Offline-Updates-to-OpenManage-Enterprise/m...

Essentially it looks http://downloads.dell.com/openmanage_enterprise/LexingtonUpdates.xml and that in turn points to a tar.gz in the archives directory.

I've copied that the content of that URL to a webserver on our disconnected network and everything works as expected.  I've successfully update to 3.1.0 without issue (takes about 15-20 mins on our virtual appliance).

Same here. We tried to upgrade through the offline function (html, nfs) as well. But the the gui shows no update found.

What file(s) did you point to for offline update? Did you find a update file instead of the virtual appliance install files?

Great. Worked like a charm, putting those files on a local webserver and point to it. Now I only need to figure out why it doesn't work online (probably proxy/firewall problem at my work)

(Ugh. Just found out I had two accounts. This is @Olainen posting. Will delete this account, and keep my olainen account; in case someone wants to contact me)

Hey,

we've tried the same but for us the update does'nt appear in OME.

We are running an httpd Webserver on CentOS 7. All files are available through http and OME is accessing the server, at least it is accessing the LexingtonUpdate.xml and xml.asc files without an error on the server side. After that nothing happens.

Do you habe any ideas how we can solve that ?

Hi,

To get more understanding on this, do you the upgrade process starting at all? Upgrade make take upto 30 or more minutes depending on the available bandwidth.

Hey,

Not at all. OME cant even find the update on our local webserver. Ome still displays that the latest version is 3.0.0.

But in the access_log from the webserver we get two "HTTP GET Request", both with status code 200.

Meanwhile i will check with our network team if we get any kind of firewall drops but ive already tried it on another webserver.


10.61.248.236 - - [14/Jan/2019:07:42:01 +0000] "GET /LexingtonUpdates.xml HTTP/1.1" 200 700 "-" "Java/1.8.0_181"
10.61.248.236 - - [14/Jan/2019:07:42:01 +0000] "GET /LexingtonUpdates.xml.asc HTTP/1.1" 200 95 "-" "Java/1.8.0_181"

Hi there

Could we please just have an option to upload the update file to the server via the GUI? Not all of us have proxies or webservers lying around... 🙂

Thanks!
