Updating H-Sphere On Servers With Load Balancing (NetApp)

 

Related Docs:   NetApp Configuration

H-Sphere web or mail servers with NetApp load balancing are configured in such a way that H-Sphere regards master and slave servers as one server and "sees" only master servers. Therefore, the H-Sphere upgrade script installs new software only to master servers and does not automatically upgrade slave servers.

The following procedure allows updating H-Sphere on the NetApp slave servers as well:

  1. Create H-Sphere physical servers for each Web/mail slave servers.

  2. Add H-Sphere logical servers to each physical server created there.

  3. Perform the standard H-Sphere update.

  4. Check the latest update log (located in the /hsphere/update directory on the CP server) to ensure the software is correctly updated on the slave servers. For example, when updating to HS 2.4.2 Beta3:

    cd /hsphere/update
    vi U24.2b3.log.200412210900

  5. Remove logical and physical servers from the slave servers from E.Manager in the admin Control Panel.

  6. On the master and slave servers, do steps 9.2 and 9.3 of the NetApp Configuration document to return to the correct Apache configuration for NetApp.
