Linux: In case you are running XPLG as a service, it is recommended to follow these steps:
Stop XPLG services (on each server)
Run each XPLG process from its installation directory manually (cd INSTALL_DIR → sh runXpoLog.sh start)
At the end of the update/validation, stop each XPLG process from its installation directory manually (cd INSTALL_DIR → sh runXpoLog.sh stop)
Run XPLG services (on each server)
Load Balancer usage: In case you are using a load balancer in-front of XPLG servers, it is recommended to deploy the update by a direct browsing to one of the XPLG nodes (it has no impact which cluster node), and then publish the patch to the cluster.
IMPORTANT: Before deploying the patch, make sure to review the Release Notes to ensure your XPLG environment meet the prerequisites.
Open a browser to XpoLog and go to the Updates pages (PortX > System > About), click the 'publish patch', select the zip file that was downloaded at #1 and run. Note: if you're running a cluster, select to publish the patch to all listed nodes.
XPLG will automatically deploy the update, and restart - you should see a message indicating a successful deployment once done.
Apply a valid XPLG 7 license (if upgrading from an earlier version).
