Complete the Upgrade

To complete the upgrade, complete the following steps:

To complete the upgrade, complete the following steps:
Re-Enable the Automatic Recovery of the Data Aggregator Process
Re-enable the automatic recovery of the Data Aggregator process. You disabled the automatic recovery before you upgraded Data Aggregator. When enabled, if the database server runs out of memory, or if Data Repository is unavailable for a time, Data Aggregator shuts down automatically to help ensure that data consistency is maintained.
In a fault tolerant environment, this procedure is unnecessary because Consul manages the start and stop state of the Data Aggregator. For more information, see Fault Tolerance.
Follow these steps:
  1. Log in to the computer where the Data Aggregator is installed as the root user.
  2. Open a console and type the following command:
    crontab -e
    A vi session opens.
  3. Uncomment out the following line by removing the pound symbol (#) from the beginning of the following line:
    # * * * * * /sbin/service dadaemon start > /dev/null
    For example:
    * * * * * /sbin/service dadaemon start > /dev/null
    The automatic recovery of the Data Aggregator process is re-enabled.
Perform Post-Upgrade Configuration
Do the following steps after you upgrade
CA Performance Management
:
  • If you use the Java Cryptography Extension (JCE), upgrade the JCE to version 8.
    For the Java 8 version of the JCE, visit the Oracle site.
  • Upgrading Data Aggregator backs up the /opt/IMDataAggregator/apache-karaf-<
    vers
    > directory to the /opt/IMDataAggregator/backup/apache-karaf directory. Customizations that are located in the /opt/IMDataAggregator/apache-karaf-<
    vers
    >/etc/ directory, such as default logging levels or other configurations are backed up, but are not restored to the installation directory automatically. To avoid losing these customizations, restore the customizations manually after you have successfully upgraded.
  • Upgrading Data Collector backs up the /opt/IMDataCollector/apache-karaf-<
    vers
    > directory to the /opt/IMDataCollector/backup/apache-karaf directory. Customizations that are located in the /opt/IMDataCollector/apache-karaf-<
    vers
    >/etc/ directory, such as default logging levels or other configurations are backed up, but are not restored to the installation directory automatically. To avoid losing these customizations, restore the customizations manually after you successfully upgraded.
Vendor Certification Priorities
New vendor certifications are placed at the bottom of the Vendor Certification Priorities list for the corresponding metric family. To take advantage of the new vendor certifications, manually change the vendor certification priorities.
For example, F5 CPU vendor certifications are modeled as normal CPUs but do not get discovered because F5 also supports Host Resources. After an upgrade, the Host Resources CPU priority entry is higher than the F5 entries appended to the end of the priority list. To discover F5 CPU devices and components, update the vendor certification priority for the CPU metric family.
