Synopsis

I am running and older version and need to upgrade to new version of Store

Solution

Please Read First!
Please note that once you have done this procedure and restarted the nodes, you can not backrev to the previous version.  Once you have upgraded you must stay with that version or Newer.
You need to return the usb key to the same system in which it came from.
If you are upgrading from much older version to Netmail Secure this should be done in steps (to check version number please view webadmin for Store and note version number).
Please follow the below 
recommendation for upgrading from version to version.
Version below 4.0.x upgrade to 4.0.x
Version 4.0.X - 5.0.x upgrade to 5.1.x
Version 5.1.x and above can be upgraded to latest version of Netmail Store.

 

1. Plug the USB flash device into the Windows computer.
2. Unzip the upgrade zip file.
3. Make note of the drive letter assigned to USB device. (Examples use X:)
4. Move the license.txt and node.cfg file from usb key to computer (they are found on the usb key in folder /caringo )
*This step is very important, as the next step will over write the config file and possibly the license file.
5. Copy all files from upgrade zip file to the USB flash drive. You will over-write the existing files already on the flash drive.
*There are hidden files and folders so make sure you get everything, you may need to turn on the "show hidden files and folders" option 
6. Open a command prompt: Start Menu-->Run: "cmd.exe"
7. Run the syslinux.exe utility from the upgrade zip passing the drive letter of the USB flash device as a parameter.
*Example: "D:\syslinux.exe X:"
8. Move the license.txt and node.cfg file back to the usb key in folder /caringo
9. Stop the USB flash drive and unmount. This is typically done by double-clicking the icon on the task bar that is labeled "Safely Remove Hardware" and the hitting the Stop button for the USB flash device.
10. Plug the USB flash device back into Store node and Restart node.
 *Restarting the nodes should be done from the web console when ever possible. To do this you will need the username and password, which can be found in the node.cfg file of the node.

If you are doing a rolling upgrade of the nodes if it is taking longer then 15 minutes from the restart of the first node, you may want to suspend volume recovery temporarily until all systems are up and running the same version of software. To do this from the web console, click Settings -> and check Suspend Volume Recovery.  To save this you will need the username and password, which can be found in the node.cfg file of the node.

Once the First system is rebooted, login the the web console and verify the version number.

You will only see nodes listed after they are rebooted and running the new version of the software.
