For Server Backup 5.2.x and later, you must upgrade the components in the following order or your backups may fail:
To upgrade the Backup Agent on Linux, follow the instructions below.
1. Perform the following manual steps before the upgrade:
Stop the Backup Agent by executing the following command:
service cdp-agent stop
Verify that there are no running or defunct cdp-2-6 processes by running:
ps ax | egrep –i c[d]p
2. Proceed with the upgrade:
yum install serverbackup-enterprise-agent
Enter "y" to confirm the command.
3. Start the new Server Backup Agent:
service cdp-agent start
To verify the most recent version of the Agent is running, run the following command:
egrep "Agent Version|Starting" /usr/sbin/r1soft/log/cdp.log | tail -n2
A Full Block Scan will be initiated after an agent upgrade due to a restart of the agent service/daemon. This ensures replicas are consistent.
