How to Upgrade AirWave aka How to upgrade AMP?

Maybe you've wondered how to upgrade to the latest version of AirWave (aka AMP)?

 

It's not too hard, you just need access to the shell of the server with root access and internet access from the server. (this can be done from a local file too, but I won't get into that now)

 

SSH into the AirWave server using root and type: start_amp_upgrade

 

The entire upgrade should look like this:

 

root@localhost mercury]# start_amp_upgrade

Enter desired AMP version: 8.0.6.3

Directory not specified; using /root.

Upgrade script AMP-8.0.6.3-amp_upgrade was not found in local cache.

Upgrade package AMP-8.0.6.3-x86_64-cvs.tar.gz was not found in local cache.

***************************************************************

reboot your system.

 

  cd /root/svn/mercury/src/x86_64/rpms/CentOS-6; rpm -Uvh kernel-2.6.32-504.1.3.el6.x86_64.rpm kernel-headers-2.6.32-504.1.3.el6.x86_64.rpm kernel-firmware-2.6.32-504.1.3.el6.noarch.rpm

[ Edited ]

Great guide,This part is very importent: (It's not done via the automatic upgrade process - booting without this step will cause your amp not to start as need)

run the command below and

reboot your system.



cd /root/svn/mercury/src/x86_64/rpms/CentOS-6; rpm -Uvh kernel-2.6.32-504.1.3.el6.x86_64.rpm kernel-headers-2.6.32-504.1.3.el6.x86_64.rpm kernel-firmware-2.6.32-504.1.3.el6.noarch.rpm
