    Upgrading an HA Deployment with an NFS /store/backup Partition

    You can upgrade an JSA deployment with an NFS /store/backup partition to JSA 7.3.0.

    Ensure that the primary and secondary hosts are in an HA cluster.

    1. Confirm that the order of the store mount points in the /etc/fstab file on both the primary and the secondary host is as follows:
      • /store

      • /store/tmp

      • /store/transient

      • /store/backup

      Restart the hosts if you made any changes to the /etc/fstab file.

    2. Ensure that the /store/backup partition is mounted on both the primary host and the secondary host
    3. Mount the JSA 7.3.0 ISO on both the primary and secondary hosts.

      mount -o loop <JSA_7.3.0.iso> /media/cdrom

    4. Prepare for the upgrade by typing the following command on both the primary and secondary hosts:

      /media/cdrom/post/prepare_offboard_storage_upgrade.sh

    5. Upgrade the primary host by typing the following command:

      /media/cdrom/setup

    6. The upgrade fails after the initial restart. A message prompts you to remount the /store/backup partition correctly.

      When prompted to remount /store/backup, run the following command:

      systemctl start rpcbind systemctl start nfs

    7. Mount the /store/backup partition by typing the following command:

      mount /store/backup

    8. Continue the upgrade by typing the following command:

      /root/complete_upgrade.sh

    9. After the upgrade on the primary host finishes, copy the following file from primary host to the secondary host by typing the following command as one line:

      scp /opt/qradar/conf/capabilities/map_localhost_interfaces.txt.bak root@<secondary_ip>:/opt/qradar/ha/map_localhost_interfaces.txt

    10. Upgrade the secondary host.
    11. Repeat steps 6-8 if the secondary host encounters the same issue.
    12. After the secondary upgrade finishes, ensure that both the primary and secondary hosts have /store/backup entry in the /etc/fstab file.
    13. Verify that the /store/backup partition is mounted properly
