Management Center


You want to upgrade Management center and do not have a local web server. 


You can upload Management Center (MC)  "bcsi" image to itself to perform the upgrade.  Here are the steps:

  1. Download Management Center system image ".bcsi".  You will need a Symantec account to download this system image.  
  2. Upload the system image to MC. 
    • Go to Configuration->Files->Select Add Files->Upload the system image ".bcsi"
  3. Copy the image path and you will notice the path is HTTPS and the port is 8082 as shown below.
    • Go to MC UI->Configuration->Files->highlight the target image-> Select Copy URL.
    • EX: https://<MC-ip-address or hostname>:8082/fs/download/cbe38597a0aa4bb3950826cf4ab18063
  4. Modify the path to be HTTP and port 8080 because MC can only pull the image over HTTP, then copy it. 
    • http://<MC-ip-address or hostname>:8080/fs/download/cbe38597a0aa4bb3950826cf4ab18063
  5. Enable HTTP security access for port 8080, which is disabled by default. This is needed to permit MC to access itself using HTTP protocol and port 8080.
