Re: DP Upgrade from 9.01 to 9.08

Hi !

First : omnitrig -stop to prevent jobs to be started
Next check if there is any running sessions.

Next check if there is any locked devs : omnidbutil -show_locked_devs
If there is some locked devs and no sessions running, try : omnidbutil -free_locked_devs

Next check the database : omnidbutil -extended
If all is good, in some case I restart the CM server/virtual machine, or omnisv -stop && omnisv -start (and omnitrig -stop)

Then all is good for the update.

Maybe somebody has any good advice to add

Re: DP Upgrade from 9.01 to 9.08

Besides from the things mentioned by Ludovic, I would add having a good contingency plan in place just in case something goes wrong and you need to revert to DP 8.0.

For example something like:

Backup before upgrading

  • Stop DP services
  • Copy DP directories to a safe place 
  • Start DP services

Restore in case of problems during the upgrade

  • Uninstall DP software
  • Remove DP folders
  • Clean Install DP 8 and same patch levels as before the upgrade
  • Stop DP services
  • Restore initially backed up DP dirs
  • Start DP services

Thanks for the information could you please let me know the folders names that need to backup first & the service need to stop before proceeding backup. 

2. the DP.9.08 is on a single patche (exe) or it is a ISO file.

3. Currently i have 9.01 running.

4. Once i run the 9.08 file, which service do i need to start it again. and how to upgrade the current Clients in DP.

  • Windows:

c:\programdata\omniback

c:\program files\omniback

  • Unix:

/etc/opt/omni

/opt/omni

/var/opt/omni

  • Services can be stopped/started with omnisv -stop/-start
  • DP 9.08 comes in an autoextracting exe file
  • Clients upgrade can be done from the DP GUI by right clicking and press Upgrade.

Re: DP Upgrade from 9.01 to 9.08

Do not forget, once you stop all DP services to check that there are no more DP processes running.

On linux you can find them with: ps -ef | grep omni

Kill the remaining processing. Tipically bma and dbsm.

Re: DP Upgrade from 9.01 to 9.08

"omnisv -status" shows all the services are running fine now?

Have you tried restarting DP services to see if they can all start correctly?

Regarding the error "Web reporting user password could not be randomized". I'm not sure this is a fatal error. Do you use Web Reporting? Have you noticed any problems on Web Reporting after the upgrade?
