Hot Patch Releases

This section describes the installation procedure and resolved issues in Junos Space Network Management Platform Release 21.3R1 hot patches.

During hot patch installation, the script performs the following operations:

  • Blocks the device communication.
  • Stops JBoss, JBoss-dc, and watchdog services.
  • Backs up existing configuration files and Enterprise Application Archive (EAR) files.
  • Updates the Red Hat Package Manager (RPM) files.
  • Restarts the watchdog process, which restarts JBoss and JBoss-dc services.
  • Unblocks device communication after restarting the watchdog process for device load balancing.

Installation Instructions

Perform the following steps in the CLI of the JBoss-VIP node only:

  1. Download the Junos Space Platform 21.3R1 Patch vX from the download site.

    Here, X is the hot patch version. For example, v1, v2, and so on.

  2. Copy the Space-21.3R1-Hotpatch-vX.tgz file to the /home/admin location of the VIP node.

  3. Verify the checksum of the hot patch for data integrity:

    md5sum Space-21.3R1-Hotpatch-vX.tgz.

  4. Extract the Space-21.3R1-Hotpatch-vX.tgz file:

    tar -zxvf Space-21.3R1-hotpatch-vX.tgz

  5. Change the directory to Space-21.3R1-Hotpatch-vX.

    cd Space-21.3R1-Hotpatch-vX

  6. . Execute the script from the Space-21.3R1-Hotpatch-vX folder:


    The script detects whether the deployment is a standalone deployment or a cluster deployment and installs the patch accordingly.

A marker file, /etc/.Space-21.3R1-Hotpatch-vX, is created with the list of Red-hat Package Manager (RPM) details in the hot patch.

  • We recommend that you install the latest available hot-patch version, which is the cumulative patch.

  • Set the SSH option “ServerAliveInterval” to a minimum value of 300, when connecting to the Applogic VIP via SSH to apply the hotpatch.

    Sample command: ssh admin@x.x.x.x -o ServerAliveInterval=300.
