Upgrading JSA to 7.4.0

 

You must upgrade all of the JSA products in your deployment to the same version.

Ensure that JSA 7.3.0 or later is installed.

Upgrade your JSA Console first, and then upgrade each managed host. In high-availablity (HA) deployments, upgrade the HA primary host first, and then upgrade the HA secondary host.

  1. Run the aqlValidator script to determine whether any Ariel queries must be updated before you upgrade JSA:
    • If auto-updates are enabled, run aqlValidator by typing the following command:

      /opt/qradar/support/apar/aqlValidator

    • If auto-updates are not enabled:

      1. Download the latest autoupdates bundle from Juniper Customer Support https://support.juniper.net/support/downloads/.

      2. Install the autoupdates bundle by following the instructions in JSA. See Juniper Secure Analytics Administration Guide/Set Up JSA/Automatic update. Juniper Secure Analytics Administration Guide.

      3. Run aqlValidator by typing the following command:

        /opt/qradar/support/apar/aqlValidator

  2. Download the <qradar>.sfs file from Juniper Customer Support https://support.juniper.net/support/downloads/.
  3. Use SSH to log in to your system as the root user.
  4. Copy the SFS file to the /root or /var/log directory or to another location that has sufficient disk space. Note

    Do not copy the file to an existing JSA system directory, such as /store.

  5. To create the /media/updates directory, type the following command:

    mkdir -p /media/updates

  6. Use the cd command to change to the directory where you copied the SFS file.
  7. To mount the SFS file to the /media/updates directory, type the following command:

    mount -o loop <qradar>.sfs /media/updates/

  8. To run the patch installer, type the following command:

    /media/updates/installer

What to do next:

  1. Unmount /media/updates by typing the following command:

    umount /media/updates

  2. Delete the SFS file.

  3. Perform an automatic update to ensure that your configuration files contain the latest network security information. For more information, see the Juniper Secure Analytics Administration Guide.

  4. Delete the patch file to free up space on the partition.

  5. Clear your web browser cache. After you upgrade JSA, the Vulnerabilities tab might not be displayed. To use JSA Vulnerability Manager after you upgrade, you must upload and allocate a valid license key. For more information, see the Juniper Secure Analytics Administration Guide for your product.

  6. Determine if there are changes that must be deployed. For more information see “Deploying Changes” in Juniper Secure Analytics Administration Guide.
