I recieved a question from our Unix sys-admins, regarding the last RHEL robot-rpm version used, namely 7.80.
We are currently using Red Hat Satellite to provision and patch.
Recently a custom tooling repo has been added, containing amongst others, the nimsoft 7.80 robot rpm.
We would like to upgrade agent using rpm
Target version is nimsoft-robot-7.80-1.x86_64
Source is nimsoft-robot-5.52-1.x86_64
Upgrade using rpm –Uvh breaks the previous installation.
File /opt/nimsoft/robot/robot.cfg gets overwritten by new version hence all config is lost and robot does not start.
To fix robot, we must
- Stop controller
- copy /opt/nimsoft/robot/robot.cfg.rpmsave from the previous version to /opt/nimsoft/robot/robot.cfg
- run /opt/nimsoft/install/RobotConfigurer.sh
- start agent
However, all probes configuration are lost.
Does anybody have an idea how to resolve this issue ?
