Issue/Introduction

During upgrade from ATP 3.0.5 to 3.1.0, the ATP UI does not seem to raise in a reasonable amount of time.

Cause

During the operation to migrate elasticsearch database from version 1.x to version 6.x, the target partition for backing up the elasticsearch database was busy, resulting in ATP failure to complete data backup for migration of elasticsearch. This failure in turn halted the upgrade from 3.0.5 to 3.1.0 as a whole.

Environment

ATP management server or ATP AllInOne

Resolution

 

  1. To confirm this issue, at the admin CLI, type:
    cat /var/log/symantec/sgs-td/update.log | grep -A 7 -B 7 "backing up ES 1.x data folders"
     
  2. If the following text appears in the output, then re-install with the most recent version of ATP appliance software
    [Timestamp] backing up ES 1.x data folders
