Upgrade Prerequisites

  • This patch requires Java 1.8. Go to the System Status Console at PORTX > System > System Health and check the 'Java Version' under the 'System Information' section.

  • Ensure you have a valid V7 license. Go to PORTX > Settings > License to verify. Contact us for additional information.

  • 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.
