8.15. Upgrading Tungsten Replicator
To upgrade an existing installation of Tungsten Replicator, the upgrade must
be performed from a staging directory containing the new release. The
process updates the Tungsten Replicator software and restarts the replicator
service using the current configuration.
How you upgrade will depend on how your installation was originally
deployed. For deployments originally installed where
tungsten-installer (which includes all
installations originally installed using Tungsten Replicator 2.1.0 and earlier),
use the method shown in Section 8.15.1, “Upgrading Installations using update”.
For Tungsten Replicator 2.1.0 and later, the installation should be migrated from
tungsten-installer to use
tpm. Use the upgrade method in
Section 8.15.2, “Upgrading Tungsten Replicator to use tpm”, which will migrate your
existing installation to use tpm for deployment,
configuration and upgrades. The tpm commands simplifies
many aspects of the upgrade, configuration and deployment process.
For installations using Tungsten Replicator 2.1.1 and later where
tpm has been used to perform the installation, use the
instructions in Section 8.15.3, “Upgrading Tungsten Replicator using tpm”.
