Clarity Upgrade from local file

Hello Everyone,
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



Thank you,

Re: Clarity Upgrade from local file

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-


I just tried the upgrade on my Clarity Engine and that worked like this:

First I uploaded the upgrade file CE- 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 root@
root@'s password:
[root@clarity ~]# ls
anaconda-ks.cfg  CE-  install.log  install.log.syslog
[root@clarity ~]# yum install tunctl

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.

If you have urgent issues, please contact your Aruba partner or Aruba TAC (click for contact details).
