If you are upgrading from Data360 Analyze version 3.6.X to 3.8.X or later, and your current installation is on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, you need to upgrade Red Hat Enterprise Linux to either version 7 or 8. Data360 Analyze 3.8.X and later is not supported on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

There are two potential upgrade paths:

  • Carry out an in-place upgrade of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 to 8, followed by an upgrade of Data360 Analyze to 3.8.X or later. See Upgrade Red Hat and Data360 Analyze.
  • Move Data360 Analyze from a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 instance to a Red Hat 8 instance, then upgrade Data360 Analyze from 3.6.X to 3.8.X or later. See Move Data360 Analyze then upgrade.

Upgrade Red Hat and Data360 Analyze

The RedHat documentation states that upgrading from Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 to 8 is a two step process. You should first upgrade from 6 to 7, before upgrading to 8. See below for more details.

  1. Make a backup of Data360 Analyze, so that it can be restored if required.

    1. The .lxp backup files can be found, by default, in the following location: <Data360Analyze data directory>/data-7731
    2. The additional files required to perform a complete restore are listed in Restoring from a backup and upgrading, step 1.
  2. Upgrade from Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 to 7. See https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/8/html-single/upgrading_from_rhel_6_to_rhel_8/index for the official upgrade steps, which should be followed.

    While Data360 Analyze 3.6.X is supported on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, check to make sure that it still works.

  3. Upgrade from Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 to 8.
  4. Once the upgrade has been completed, install the required pre-requisite packages. See Pre-installation steps (Linux only), step 3 for details.
  5. Run an in-place upgrade of Data360 Analyze to 3.8.0 or later. See In place upgrade for details.
  6. Check that Data360 Analyze starts and works as expected.
