Upgrade VMware Appliance From 12.0 to 16.1

Post by beng » Wed Feb 24, 2016 5:29 am

We currently have a VMware appliance running 12.0.3 and would like to upgrade to 16.1 (we have active maintenance)

I am unable to find any guides....except upgrading from v11 to v12.

I get version 16.1 if I download this: https://files.plixer.com/Scrutinizer-li ... taller.run

But the installer advises I need v15.8.

+ Is there any guides?
+ Can I go from 12.0.3 to 15.8, then 15.8 to 16.1
+ Where can I get v15.8 for my appliance if I need to do the above step

Thanks

Hi Beng,

In order to upgrade from version 12.0.3 you will need to first make the jump to 12.1 then follow with 15.5 > 15.8 > 16.1

I highly recommend a snapshot be taken before starting this process.

1. ssh into the server and download the first installer

wget http://files.plixer.com/archive/scrutin ... 12.1.0.run

- Set permissions on the installer
chmod 755 Scrutinizer-linux-x64-installer_12.1.0.run

- Run the installer and follow the prompts
./Scrutinizer-linux-x64-installer_12.1.0.run



2
. - Download the latest package update script:
wget http://files.plixer.com/support/15.5/yumUpdate.sh

- Set permissions on the script
chmod 755 yumUpdate.sh

- Update the OS and all packages first (requires Internet access)
./yumUpdate.sh



3. download and run the second installer

wget http://files.plixer.com/archive/scrutin ... r_15.5.run

- Set permissions on the installer
chmod 755 Scrutinizer-linux-x64-installer_15.5.run

- Run the installer and follow the prompts
./Scrutinizer-linux-x64-installer_15.5.run



4. download and run the third installer

wget http://files.plixer.com/archive/scrutin ... r_15.8.run

- Set permissions on the installer
Scrutinizer-linux-x64-installer_15.8.run

- Run the installer and follow the prompts
./Scrutinizer-linux-x64-installer_15.8.run



5. Download and run the fourth installer

wget http://files.plixer.com/Scrutinizer-lin ... taller.run

- Set permissions on the installer
Scrutinizer-linux-x64-installer.run

- Run the installer and follow the prompts
./Scrutinizer-linux-x64-installer.run


Now you will be up on the latest version. If you need any further assistance, please don't hesitate in getting in touch with support.
