Patch Installation

The instructions below are relevant if you already run OnApp 5.5.0 version. If you are upgrading from OnApp 5.4.x. version, run the full upgrade procedure. For more information refer to the Upgrade Guide.

Upgrade Control Panel Server

To apply the patch into Control Panel (running 5.5.0 version):

  1. Update OnApp YUM repository file:

    # rpm -Uvh http://rpm.repo.onapp.com/repo/onapp-repo-5.5.noarch.rpm
  2. Update the Control Panel installer package:

    # yum update onapp-cp-install


  3. Run the Control Panel installer:

    # /onapp/onapp-cp-install/onapp-cp-install.sh

    At the end of the update, you need to reply 'yes' when the system offers to download ISOs and images. This is required to install version 6.9 recovery images.

Upgrade Static Compute Resources

If you have the latest 5.5 update installed on your compute resources, they already contain the latest packages and recovery images, therefore, this update is not required.


  1. Make sure your compute resource is visible and online in the Control Panel.

  2. Download and install the latest OnApp YUM repository file:

    # rpm -Uvh http://rpm.repo.onapp.com/repo/onapp-repo-5.5.noarch.rpm


  3. Upgrade OnApp compute resource installer package:

    # yum update onapp-hv-install
  4. Update your server OS components (if required):

    # /onapp/onapp-hv-install/onapp-hv-xen-install.sh -y
  5. Run compute resource installer:
    For CentOS 6 XEN compute resources:

    # /onapp/onapp-hv-install/onapp-hv-xen-install.sh

    For CentOS 6/7 KVM and CentOS 7 Xen compute resources to download new recovery images, run:

    # /onapp/onapp-hv-install/onapp-hv-kvm-install.sh -t
    # /onapp/onapp-hv-install/onapp-hv-xen-install.sh -t
  6. Reboot static compute resources.

    Xen CentOS 6 compute resources must be rebooted to complete the update procedure.

Patch Installation for Clouds with High Availability Control Panel

If you are a High Availability Control Panel customer, it is recommended that you contact support for help with the procedure described below. Be aware, that if the configuration below is performed incorrectly it may cause damage to your cloud.

To apply the patch for clouds with the High Availability Control Panel run the following commands on all  Control Panel servers:

  1. Disable managing resources on all nodes by running the following command once on any of the nodes:

    # crm configure property maintenance-mode=true


  2. Update OnApp YUM repository file:

    # rpm -Uvh http://rpm.repo.onapp.com/repo/onapp-repo-5.5.noarch.rpm
  3. Run the Control Panel installer:

    # /onapp/onapp-cp-install/onapp-cp-install.sh

    At the end of the update, you need to reply 'yes' when the system offers to download ISOs and images. This is required to install version 6.9 recovery images.

  4. Switch all nodes back online by running the following command once on any of the nodes:

     # crm configure property maintenance-mode=false

    Ensure that the lsyncd service is not started during the whole CP upgrade procedure. In separate consoles, connect to all three CP servers and run the following command:

    watch -n 0.1 /etc/init.d/lsyncd stop
