How do I install a Manager Hotfix?

Jump to solution

I am needing to upgrade my NSM or NSP whatever the proper name is... to version 9.1.7.80 from 9.1.7.63. I have searched google and the recommended Installation Guide, however I have not found any information on what steps are needed to install a Minor hotfix. Am I to assume that installing a Hotfix for NSM is the same as performing an Upgrade to the manager? The steps shown on Page 122 of the NSP 9.1 installation guide?

So backup everything, tune and prune DB, backup DB, do a test install and recovery test of DB,  run the additional scripts for the DB... whatever these scripts do.. ?

Or is there another process for installing minor hotfixes which I have not found the documentation for?  Any help would be appreciated..

Hi @wohlebnt_HZA 

Applying HF on the NSM is same as upgrading the manager i.e. run the setup file on the manager and installation will be successful.

Yes, it is recommended to take config backup & all table backup separately for disaster recovery. Alert proc scripts are required only when db holds more than 1 million or more alerts. After upgrade if you don't see past alerts i.e. before upgrade Solr import is required otherwise no need to perform the import.

I hope this answers your question.
