Operations Manager system upgrades are distributed as raucb files. All Operations Manager models share a single, unified upgrade file.
The puginstall command loads the file and performs the upgrade. The raucb can loaded from the local filesystem or from a remote HTTP, HTTPS or FTP server (e.g. the Opengear downloads site).
Step by step
- Login to the Operations Manager CLI shell as an Administrator or root
- Note the current version:
- Perform the upgrade using one of these two methods:
- Load the raucb file from a remote URL:
sudo puginstall --reboot-after https://ftp.opengear.com/download/operations_manager/current/operations_manager-YY.Qn-public.raucb
- Alternatively, copy the raucb file to the Operations Manager's /tmp directory using scp, WinScp or similar, then load the local file:
sudo puginstall --reboot-after /tmp/operations_manager-YY.Qn-public.raucb
- The Operations Manager writes the upgrade to its storage and reboots, this typically takes a couple of minutes
- Login again and note the updated version
Note: firmware 18.x does not support "-R" or "--reboot-after" option.
Automatic configuration migration & fallback
Configuration settings are maintained (migrated) when upgrading firmware. If the Operations Manager detects an issue with the new firmware image or migrated configuration it will fall back to its pre-upgrade firmware and configuration.
While you may downgrade to a previous version of firmware, configuration migration is not supported and you must erase configuration and reconfigure:
sudo puginstall --ignore-version --config-erase --reboot-after https://ftp.opengear.com/download/operations_manager/current/operations_manager-YY.Qn-public.raucb
