Issue/Introduction

I am preparing to perform the upgrade to CU5 tomorrow night (December 1) beginning at 7 PM MT.  I am waiting on final approvals which will be a go\no go tomorrow afternoon.  We did this in our test UIM and it went fine.  I will be following these steps:

FOR UIM DEPLOYMENT:

  • Verify snapshot of the primary hub and the OC server in case a backout is needed.
  • Download the installer files to the UIM Primary Server
  • Ensure the files setupCAUIMServer and uimserverpackages.zip are in the same location
    On Windows,
  • Run the installer setupCAUIMServer.exe
  • Verify that Admin Console is working, that the alerts are being processed, that the data_engine is connecting, that OC is working properly, and that the queues are processing data
  •  

FOR OC DEPLOYMENT:

  • Download the installer files to the UIM Primary Server
  • From the Primary hub, run the installer oc-installer-20.4.5-windows_x64.exe
  • Select the OC robot machine which is a child of the Primary
  • Verify that OC is running and processing data

Environment

  • Release: 20.4 CU5
  • MS SQL Server 2016 SP3, Enterprise Edition

OC Login Issue
There is an OC login issue where you can't login to OC after the upgrade if the usage_metering probe is not activated.
- This issue is fixed by UIM 20.47 OC webapp. (ump_operatorconsole-20.4.7.zip) available on the download site listed above.
