QuantaStor 5.12.8 Upgrade Instructions
Upgrading to 5.12.8, and Latest OS Packages and Security updates via Command Line Interface
This is the recommended option for systems running 5.x QuantaStor versions on the Bionic Platform, and systems that may be out of date and require OS level package updates as well.
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 may be required for changes in the 5.12.8 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 5.12.8 along with the latest Kernel and Security and OS packages.
# curl -o /opt/osnexus/quantastor/bin/qs_upgrade.py packages.osnexus.com/packages/quantastor-bionic/scripts/qs_upgrade.py # sudo /opt/osnexus/quantastor/bin/qs_upgrade.py --includeKernel=true
Once the install completes you will be running QuantaStor 5.12.8
