Issue/Introduction

I am trying to upgrade a 9.2 gateway to version 9.4. The documentation is very hard to follow. Comments about patches to install and a Kernel update. The directions link to other pages making the the experience dis-jointed and confusing.

Environment

Release : 9.4

Component : API GATEWAY

Resolution

This is the general patch installation sequence to follow in order :


Applies to Upgrade From 9.2 to 9.4 CR04 + Monthly patch 


1) Do a VMware Snapshot of your Gateway before Upgrading. Work with your VMware Administrator on performing a snapshot of your Gateway in case you need to revert if there is an issue
2) Check your current version. Do this to verify the version you are upgrading from and ensure you are following the right path
3) Disable Enterprise Service Manager (ESM) if present. Do this only if you are running ESM
4) Upgrade Thales HSM Firmware if present. Do this only if your CA API Gateway includes a Thales Hardware Security Module (HSM)
5) Remove Old WebSocket Components if present. If your Gateway contains any WebSocket components from v9.1 or earlier, delete these components before upgrading
