Upgrade Console to v.3.0.1 in SHOD v.3.5.4 or APOD-ws v.3.5.4 on AWS

Overview

This article provides instructions on how to upgrade Aspera Console to v.3.0.1 in Shares On Demand (SHOD) v.3.5.4 or Aspera Platform On Demand with Shares Web UI (APOD-ws) v.3.5.4 from v.2.5.1.  Please note that after you upgrade Console to v.3.0.1, you cannot add a new managed node that is older than v.3.5.5.  Therefore, we highly recommend you to upgrade any nodes that are waiting to be added in Console 3.0.1 to v.3.5.5+.

 

Preparation

  1. SSH to your server, and 'sudo' to the root user.  See this article for more details.  
  2. Back up your existing Console.  (Use the console Web UI for console - backup of Shares is covered below)
  3. Make sure there are no active transfers on your server
  4. Download the installer of Console v.3.0.1, Common v.1.2.13 and Enterprise Server v.3.5.5
# wget http://download.asperasoft.com/sw/ondemand/3.5.4/aws/aspera-common-1.2.13.108370-0.x86_64.rpm
# wget http://download.asperasoft.com/sw/ondemand/3.5.4/aws/aspera-console-3.0.1.108431-0.x86_64.rpm
# wget http://download.asperasoft.com/sw/ondemand/3.5.4/aws/aspera-entsrv-3.5.5.107274-linux-64.rpm

 

Procedure

Backup the Shares Application. Make a note of the ID of the created backup directory.

# /opt/aspera/shares/u/setup/bin/backup /your_backup_dir

Backup the Console Database

# asctl console:backup_database

Stop all Console processes

# asctl all:stop

Stop the shares nginx web server

# service aspera-shares stop

Install Console and Common

# rpm -Uvh aspera-entsrv-3.5.5.107274-linux-64.rpm
# rpm -Uvh aspera-common-1.2.13.108370-0.x86_64.rpm
# rpm -Uvh aspera-console-3.0.1.108431-0.x86_64.rpm

Run the Console Upgrade procedure and make Apache listen to 81 and 442 during the Console upgrade process. Console upgrade automatically starts Apache.  Since SHOD and APOD-ws use nginx, not Apache, we need to stop Apache when console:upgrade is complete.

# asctl console:upgrade
# asctl apache:stop
# chkconfig aspera_httpd off

Start Shares

# service aspera-shares start

 

NOTE: If you are running Console v.2.5.1 or older and on 3.4.6 AOD or older,  please see this article.
