Oracle HSM (SAM-QFS): Using IPS to Upgrade an Existing SAM-QFS Installation, Previously Installed With IPS
Last updated on MARCH 28, 2017
Applies to:Oracle Hierarchical Storage Manager (HSM) and StorageTek QFS Software - Version 5.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Beginning with SAM-QFS 5.4, we offer two ways to install and upgrade SAM-QFS packages :
- the legacy SVR4 packaging system (using the pkgadd/pkgrm commands)
- the new IPS packaging system (using the pkg command and it's various subcommands)
To install the sam-qfs packages via the IPS system from scratch, one needs to use the pkg install command as explained in the sam-qfs installation and configuration guide. To remove the package, one can revert to the pkg uninstall command.
To upgrade a previous 5.4 IPS install, preserving all the existing SAM-QFS configuration files and directories, use the 'pkg update' command, as outlined in the Solution section below.
