How do you upgrade the Partition Archiver Connector?
So, I just upgraded all my system's connectors to the most recent Connector and SuperConnector releases. However, there was no option to "push" the upgrade to the Partition Archiver Connector from the ESM.
What is the latest version the Partion Archiver should be on (for ESM 5.x)?
Is the Partition Archiver updated via other patches and service packs or is there another way to upgrade the Partition Archiver Connector?
I just want to make sure I am not missing anything since all the connectors we have here were several versions old to begin with. Thanks!
The PA gets upgraded and patched when you do ESM upgrades and patches that affect the DB. They're not upgraded as part of the normal smartconnector upgrades (technically they're not even smartconnectors). The version of the PA should match up to the ESM version.
Partition Archiver is not a connector, it is a seperate ESM component that runs on the DB (Oracle) server.
When you upgrade ESM you also upgrade; 1) partition archiver, 2) web, and 3) Console(;s). Note: Console('s) must match the first 3 dotted portions of th ESM version so you can worry about doing Console('s) last.
Connectors and the Forwarding Connector (aka you superconnector) do not have as tightly coupled a version demand as do the core ESM components. Forwarding Connector is only required if you have deployed a heirarchial ESM topology or are using it to export from ESM to some non-ESM location.
So, PA only when ESM!
Thanks, that is what I thought. However, on one of my networks the manager and the PA are the same version number. On a different network my ESM is on 5.0.0.x and the PA is 4.5.2.x. Based on what I thought and what was just posted there seems to be something wrong. Any ideas what I can do to fix this?
