Before upgrade, please make sure that:
- All vCenter network and datastore zones in OnApp have a correctly set datacenter
- The labels of compute resources in OnApp UI do not match the cluster names in your vCenter environment
- All cluster names in all datacenters are unique in your vCenter environment
This guide provides an instruction on how to upgrade your Control Panel server from OnApp Cloud 6.3 to 6.4. Please follow the complete procedure of the upgrade process. All packages must belong to the same major version to ensure the best performance of your cloud.
Upgrade Control Panel Server
To upgrade your Control Panel server:
Download the OnApp YUM repository file
Upgrade OnApp Control Panel installer package
Update your server OS components (if required)
(Optional) If you need some custom Control Panel configuration, set the values before the installer script runsThe list of custom configuration options for Control Panel.

Default is 'root' REDIS_* Options are useful if Redis Server is already installed and configured. --redis-host=REDIS_HOST IP address/FQDN where Redis Server runs. It is used by Control Panel to connect to Redis Server. The Redis Server will be installed and configured on the current box if localhost/127.0.0.1 or box's public IP address (listed in SNMP_TRAP_IPS) is specified. Default value is 127.0.0.1. If local Redis, it will serve as well on the unix socket 'PORT' (if --redis-sock without argument isn't specified). --redis-bind[=REDIS_BIND] The IP address for Redis Server to serve connections (to listen). The option isn't mandatory. --redis-port=REDIS_PORT Redis Server listen port.
0 - if local server
6379 - if remote server
--redis-passwd[=REDIS_PASSWD] Redis Server password to authentificate.
Random password is generated if the option's argument isn't specified.
By default no password is used for local Redis.
--redis-sock[=REDIS_SOCK]: Path to the Redis Server's socket. Used if local server only. Default is /var/run/redis/redis.sock. The socket is unset if the option's argument isn't specified. ADMIN_* Options are used to configure OnApp Control Panel administrator data.

The RabbitMQ will be installed and configured on the current box if localhost/127.0.0.1 or box's public IP address (enlisted in SNMP_TRAP_IPS) Default value is 127.0.0.1. VCD_* Options are usefull if vCloud/RabbitMQ are already installed and configured. --vcdlogin VCD_LOGIN RabbitMQ/vCloud user. Default value is 'rbtvcd'. --vcdpasswd VCD_PASSWD RabbitMQ/vCloud user password. The random password is generated if isn't specified. --vcdvhost VCD_VHOST RabbitMQ/vCloud vhost.

Procceed with quick update procedure. This will skip update and configuration for services, such as system packages, MySQL database, Redis Server, RabbitMQ Server, and Monit service. Set the SERVICE parameter (space separated list of statements) to define services, which need to be updated. Possible reserved statements are:
rpms - for 'system packages' upgrade;
mysql - for MySQL database upgrade and configuring;
redis - for Redis Server upgrade and configuring;
rabbitmq - for RabbitMQ Server upgrade and configuring;
monit - for Monit upgrade and configuring.
--accept-eula Automatically accept OnApp's End User License Agreement. -c CONFIG_FILE Custom installer configuration file. Otherwise, preinstalled one is used. -h Print this info
