Upgrading Edge Services Director

 

You can upgrade Edge Services Director from Release 1.0R1 to Edge Services Director Release 1.1.

Before you start the upgrade, ensure that you have:

  • Taken a backup of your database by using the Junos Space backup feature. For more details, see Backing Up and Restoring the Database Overview.

  • Junos Space Release 15.2R2 running on your appliance. If your appliance is running an unsupported release of Junos Space, you must upgrade Junos Space before installing Edge Services Director.

  • Downloaded the Edge Services Director Release 1.1 software image to the hard disk or to an SCP server. The Edge Services Director software images are located at http://www.juniper.net/support/downloads/spaceesd.html .

  • Ensure that Junos Space Network Management Platform Release 15.2R2 is running.

  1. Install Edge Services Director Release 1.1.
  2. Restart JBoss for the monitoring and fault features to work properly in standalone and cluster setups:

    To restart the JBoss server in a standalone setup:

    1. Stop the watchdog, domain controller, and JBoss services on the standalone node.

      service jmp-watchdog stop

      service jboss-dc stop

      service jboss stop

    2. Start the watchdog service.

      service jmp-watchdog start

      Note

      Starting the watchdog service restarts the JBoss and domain controller services as well.

      It takes approximately 20 minutes for the JBoss server to come up after the restart.

    To restart the JBoss server in a cluster setup:

    1. Stop the services on the secondary node.

      service jmp-watchdog stop

      service jboss stop

    2. Stop the services on the master node (You can find the VIP hosted node Space > Fabric).

      service jmp-watchdog stop

      service jboss-dc stop

      service jboss stop

    3. Start the services on the master node.

      service jmp-watchdog start

    4. Start the service on the secondary node.

      service jmp-watchdog start

      It takes approximately 20 minutes for the JBoss server to come up after the restart.
