Wondering if anyone has upgrade Clarity VM server from a local file.
If so, Can anyone share the steps to acomplish this task?
We are unable to update using the RPM Package therefore I am looking for other solutions.
Perhaps the steps may be similar to the ones in the following post

I'm not sure why you can't upgrade using the RPM, as that is the 'local file' upgrade method.
From the Clarity Engine User Guide:
How to Update the RPM Package
Before you upgrade the RPM package using the rpm command, you must first use yum to resolve a dependency on tunctl:
# yum install tunctl
# rpm -Uf CE-126.96.36.199-62118.x86_64.rpm
I just tried the upgrade on my Clarity Engine and that worked like this:
First I uploaded the upgrade file CE-188.8.131.52-62118.x86_64.rpm to my Clarity Engine. You can use WinSCP for that, and login with username root and the password that you set for that.
Then use SSH (Putty), or the (VMWare) console, to get shell access as root and run the commands from the User Guide:
% ssh email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org's password: [root@clarity ~]# ls anaconda-ks.cfg CE-184.108.40.206-62118.x86_64.rpm install.log install.log.syslog [root@clarity ~]# yum install tunctl Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, security Setting up Install Process Determining fastest mirrors epel/metalink | 15 kB 00:0 * base: mirror.atlanticmetro.net * epel: fedora-epel.mirrors.tds.net * extras: mirror.fileplanet.com * updates: mirror.fileplanet.com base | 3.7 kB 00:0 base/primary_db | 4.7 MB 00:0 epel | 4.7 kB 00:0 epel/primary_db | 6.0 MB 00:0 extras | 3.4 kB 00:0 extras/primary_db | 29 kB 00:0 updates | 3.4 kB 00:0 updates/primary_db | 5.8 MB 00:0 Resolving Dependencies --> Running transaction check ---> Package tunctl.x86_64 0:1.5-3.el6 will be installed --> Finished Dependency Resolution Dependencies Resolved ============================================================================================================================================================================================== Package Arch Version Repository ============================================================================================================================================================================================== Installing: tunctl x86_64 1.5-3.el6 base Transaction Summary ============================================================================================================================================================================================== Install 1 Package(s) Total download size: 9.2 k Installed size: 9.5 k Is this ok [y/N]: y Downloading Packages: tunctl-1.5-3.el6.x86_64.rpm | 9.2 kB 00:0 Running rpm_check_debug Running Transaction Test Transaction Test Succeeded Running Transaction Installing : tunctl-1.5-3.el6.x86_64 Verifying : tunctl-1.5-3.el6.x86_64 Installed: tunctl.x86_64 0:1.5-3.el6 Complete!

If this does not help, please let us know at what point you get stuck. Another option is to just re-deploy Clarity Engine as there is little configuration to do on the Engine itself.
