How to apply hotfix to AhsayCBS

Requirements

You can only apply to this hotfix to machines running AhsayCBS version that the hotfix is based on.

This information can be found on the Hotfix Release History page:

Hotfix installation instructions for AhsayCBS (Windows/Linux)

1. Download the required hotfix directly provided to you or from the Hotfix Release History page: (v7 | v8)

  • Example: cbs-win-hotfix-task12345.zip
  • Example: cbs-win-v830999.zip
  • Example: cbs-nix-v830999.zip


2. Unzip the downloaded ZIP package into a temporary directory. The contents will only include relevant files necessary for the hotfix, it will not contain files that are expected to already be on your server.

  • Example, Unzipped contains directories: build, download, java, lib, webapps
  • Note: The contents of hotfix ZIP are subject to change and directories may differ than listed in this article.


3. Create a rollback copy of those directories before applying the hotfix.

  • Based on the directories you unzipped in step-2, create a duplicate of those current directories found in your CBS installation home (ie “C:\Program Files\AhsayCBS”, or “/usr/local/cbs/”). For identification, We recommend you append suffix of “.{version#}” for your current CBS version, to the copied directory name.
  • Example, your CBS is currently v8.3.0.30, you will create a copy of those directories the hotfix will overwrite:
    • Copy “C:\Program Files\AhsayCBS\build” to “C:\Program Files\AhsayCBS\build.83030
    • Copy ”C:\Program Files\AhsayCBS\download” to “C:\Program Files\AhsayCBS\download.83030
    • Copy ”C:\Program Files\AhsayCBS\java” to “C:\Program Files\AhsayCBS\java.83030
    • Copy ”C:\Program Files\AhsayCBS\lib” to “C:\Program Files\AhsayCBS\lib.83030
    • Copy ”C:\Program Files\AhsayCBS\webapps” to “C:\Program Files\AhsayCBS\webapps.83030
  • For custom installations; substitute the above with your correct Drive, Path, or directory name.

Hotfix installation instructions for AhsayCBS on AhsayUBS

Before proceeding, you should be comfortable with Command-Line Interface and have familiarity with *nix shell. Otherwise, you may want to consult with your IT before proceeding.

1. Enable SSH (if not already enabled)

  1. Login to UBS admin web console
    • Username: admin

  2. Enable SSH by:
    • Click on the “Start” button on [System] > [Settings] > [SSHD] page

2. Connect to your AhsayUBS via SSH terminal, using your AhsayUBS admin credentials. (Note: The credential is not your AhsayCBS web console login)

3. Create a temporary directory on your AhsayUBS volume for the hotfix download

  • Example, create a directory on the /ubs/mnt/eslsfw volume
mkdir /ubs/mnt/eslsfw/obsr/HOTFIX 

4. For the hotfix version you will download, create a sub-directory within the temporary directory.

  • Example, if you are downloading hotfix v8.3.0.999:
mkdir "/ubs/mnt/eslsfw/obsr/HOTFIX/HF830999" 

5. Change directory to the temporary sub-directory.

cd "/ubs/mnt/eslsfw/obsr/HOTFIX"

6. Download the hotfix using the Unix command, “fetch”.

  • Recall the URL of the required hotfix directly provided to you or from the Hotfix Release History page: (v7 | v8)
  • Syntax:
fetch   http://host.domain.com/path/path2/file.zip 
  • Replace with the URL to the hotfix download.

  2. Click on the “Stop” button on [Backup Server] > [Server Status] page in the “NFS Service” section

12. Grant write permission for the related AhsayCBS server files:

mount -uw /ubs/mnt/esfmfw 

13. For each unzipped hotfix directory, create a rollback copy of your current CBS directories before applying the hotfix. (Note: You may need to check if you have adequate space, otherwise use alternative storage to store the rollback copy.)

  • Based on the directories unzipped from step-7, create a duplicate of those current directories found in your CBS installation home (ie ” /ubs/mnt/esfmfw/obsr/system/obsr/ ”). For identification, We recommend you append suffix of “.{version#}” for your current CBS version, to the copied directory name.
  • Example, your CBS is currently v8.3.0.30, you will create a complete copy of those directories the hotfix will overwrite. In the below example, we are writing to /ubs/mnt/eslsfw
  cp -R /ubs/mnt/esfmfw/obsr/system/obsr/build      "/ubs/mnt/eslsfw/obsr/HOTFIX/build.83030"
  cp -R /ubs/mnt/esfmfw/obsr/system/obsr/lib        "/ubs/mnt/eslsfw/obsr/HOTFIX/lib.83030"
  cp -R /ubs/mnt/esfmfw/obsr/system/obsr/webapps    "/ubs/mnt/eslsfw/obsr/HOTFIX/webapps.83030"
