« Go Back

Information

 
SummaryThis article will provide the best method to update any version of DPX Master Server 4.5.0 or higher to 4.5.5. Follow the steps below and select your starting point based on whether your Master Server has access to the internet.
Step-by-Step

Please make sure that no job is active in DPX at the time of the update.



If your Master Server has access to the internet:
 
Use Autoupdate and select Check the online services for updates and hit OK. Select only your Master Server. Run Autoupdate several times until you end at version 4.5.5. This will take you from 4.5.0 to 4.5.3 to 4.5.5.

Run Autoupdate again and only select your client nodes. (Client nodes will update directly from 4.5.0 to 4.5.5)

Follow the steps based on your current Master Server DPX version and OS:

  1. Access DPX using a web browser (“Java Web Start” launch method) by going to http://master-server-hostname:6122/dpx.jnlp  (Be sure not to accidentally type https)

    DO NOT use the “Local Management Console” in the Start menu to access DPX since this route launches the Management Console and blocks updating the appropriate Java files when using Autoupdate.
     
 
  1. Select Help>Autoupdate DPX

  1. Select your Master Server only. Start the update. Autoupdate will update to each intermediate version until it reaches DPX 4.5.5, but this process is one step.
 
  1. After the updating the Master Server to version 4.5.5, please log in again to the DPX web console and check the version to make sure the update was successful.
    Repeat step 5, but only select your client nodes. (Client nodes can update directly from 4.5.0 to 4.5.5.)
    Verify your client nodes have been updated to 4.5.5.

     
 
Make sure that all your OSS systems and proxy servers have the same DPX versions before you restart your backup jobs.
