QuantaStor 4.0.6 Upgrade Instructions
There are three separate options for upgrading to the 4.0.6 release. This update will require a REBOOT.
Upgrading to 4.0.6 via the WebUI Upgrade Manager
This is the recommended upgrade path for systems already running a recent 4.x release that do not require OS level security patches.
This option will result in an upgrade of only the QuantaStor specific packages (as opposed to a complete OS wide package upgrade), and only require the Command Line Interface to perform the kernel upgrade. We recommend electing for this option if you have recently upgraded using the qs-upgrade command and do not require a full OS level update.
Login to the WebUI with an admin account and run the Upgrade Manager, click Check for Updates and Install the below QuantaStor update packages via the Upgrade manager.
Web Management 188.8.131.527-1 Core Services 184.108.40.2067-1 iSCSI Target Driver 220.127.116.116-1
Please note that the upgrade process will log out any WebUI manager sessions you have running.
Once the installation has finished, please reboot the system to begin using the new drivers included in this release.
After the system has rebooted after the upgrade, close and re-open your QuantaStor WebUI Browswer Tabs.
This will ensure you are running the 18.104.22.1687 version of the QuantaStor Web manager. If you have trouble displaying the new QuantaStor Web management via your browser, please use [Ctrl]+[F5] ([Shift]+F5] on Mac OS X) to reload the QuantaStor Web manager and bypass your cache. If your browser does not support forcing a page reload without cache, please clear the cache in your browser.
Upgrading to 4.0.6 and Latest OS Packages via Command Line Interface
This is the recommended option for systems running 4.0.3 or earlier QuantaStor versions, and systems that may be out of date and require OS level package updates as well.
This update will require a REBOOT.
This procedure will upgrade the QuantaStor system to the latest software version, and also update all OS level packages to their latest versions as well, ensuring the system software has the latest security patches in place.
It is recommended that you schedule a downtime work window as a reboot is required for changes in the 4.0.6 upgrade. You will need to run these commands as a user with sudo access on the QuantaStor appliance, such as the default 'qadmin' account or as root if you have enabled direct root access.
- NOTE: Schedule Downtime and disconnect client access before performing these steps.
Login to the CLI to perform a full upgrade to QuantaStor 4.0.6 along with the installation of the 3.19.0-58-quantastor Linux Kernel, the latest ZFS and other driver upgrades and latest Security and OS packages.
- Run the qs-upgrade command once to install the newest version of the qs-upgrade script and the base Quantastor packages.
# sudo qs-upgrade
- Run the qs-upgrade command a second time to install all system level updates and dependencies, this will bring all system level and security packages to the latest versions.
# sudo qs-upgrade
- Run the kernel upgrade command to ensure the 3.19.0-58-quantastor Linux Kernel is installed.
# sudo qs-kernelupgrade
- Reboot the Quantastor Appliance to boot to the new kernel:
# sudo reboot
Upgrading to 4.0.6 via Manual Installation
This option is not recommended unless there is an explicit need to install the 22.214.171.1247 version of the software.
The above options will result in an upgrade to the latest available software versions and are the recommended upgrade choices for all customers. The follows steps can be used if there is a specific need to install the 126.96.36.1997 version of the software, even if newer software updates are available.
The below commands can be run from the console of a QuantaStor appliance to explicitly install the 4.0.6 release on any QuantaStor running a v3 or newer release.
