If I have to upgrade API gateway from 9.0 to 9.3 can i upgrade it the director or should go via 9.1 and 9.2 later 9.3?
Alos could you pls provide the steps for 9.3 upgrade?
You should upgrade your Gateways sequentially i.e., 9.0 -> 9.1 -> 9.2 -> 9.3
This will be applying sequence of patches and restarting the GW. You should also keep a watch on your tmp space. Below is the documentation link for Upgrades.
Upgrade the Gateway - CA API Gateway - 9.3 - CA Technologies Documentation
As described in the upgrade workflow, you update your PLATFORM sequentially. As shown in the table below.
List of Update Files - CA API Gateway - 9.3 - CA Technologies Documentation
After that you can install Gateway 9.3. You don't have to install Gateway 9.1 or Gateway 9.2.
The Gateway also now offers an “expedited” upgrade process for virtual appliances that lets you zoom up from a version as old a v7.1 to the latest version, bypassing all platform updates:
Hope that helps.
Currently, I have 9.2 version appliance,pls let me know where can I download the patch to upgrade it to 9.3?
Log into this page: Product Information and search for CA API Gateway. Click Solutions and Patches. Then select your 9.3 upgrade patches.
Thanks got it.Could you pls let me know which document I have to refere to upgrade from 9.2 vm to 9.3.Because i see the documentation for hardware and software but not seen any for vm upgrade.Pls advice.
Here is the 9.2 to 9.3 upgrade page.
Upgrade an Appliance Gateway - CA API Gateway - 9.2 - CA Technologies Documentation
Do I need to upgrade RHEL platform as well or just API_gatewayv9.3.00 is fine?
If you follow the instructions step by step on Upgrade an Appliance Gateway - CA API Gateway - 9.2 - CA Technologies Documentation you will arrive at Step 7: Install the Update files. As you complete this step you are asked to 2. backup the Gateway, 3. install the patch files, 4. update the platform first, then 5. update the appliance.
So, yes, you upgrade the platform before you upgrade the Applicance Gateway.
Thanks for the info.What if the case if I don't want to upgrade RHEL, just wanted to upgrade the appliance only to 9.3 from 9.2, Wouldn't it work?
Platform updates are required for Hardware Appliances and Virtual Appliances. They are not required for Software Gateways. (The expectation is that the host computer on which the Gateway is installed is updated according to best practices.)
Install all updates in the order listed. Omitting an update may result in unexpected errors in the Gateway.
Note: For Hardware Appliance Gateways, always install the "RHEL" patches. For Virtual Appliance Gateways, use the patch appropriate for the operating system (as listed in the Gateway Main Menu (Appliance)).
In the upgrade steps of the gateway, I see the following steps. since am upgrading 9.2 Cr7 to 9.3.Do I need to execute the below one? pls advice.(Note as part of this upgrade am upgrading platform and the gateway).
Step 11: Post-Upgrade Update for SafeNet Luna
If your Gateway uses the SafeNet Luna HSM, make the following adjustment after upgrading to version 9.2:
Add the following line to the file and then save and close the file:
Hi again Popleys. You are upgrading Gateway 9.2 CR7 to Gateway 9.3.
The upgrade to Gateway 9.3 instructions are here:
Upgrade an Appliance Gateway - CA API Gateway - 9.3 - CA Technologies Documentation
(I gave you the link to the 9.2 doc previously. They are the same instructions as the Gateway 9.2 instructions, only they also include information about the Docker install).
As you can see Step 11 is Post-Upgrade Update for SafeNet Luna. Of course this is only if your Gateway uses SafeNet Luna HSM. If you open /opt/SecureSpan/JDK/jre/lib/security/java.security and see that the com.safenetinc.luna.provider.createExtractableKeys=true line is already there...then don't add it. Otherwise, add it.
The Gateways have two patches that are involved in the patching process: platform patches and application patches.
Platform patches will be installed from the SSG Configuration command line and will be installed in sequential order, meaning if you are on 9.1 and uprading to 9.3, you will need both the 9.2 and 9.3 platform patches. Application patches patch the OS and Linux and you will only need the latest version of the patch that matches the eventual patch you wish to patch to (if going to 9.3, only need the 9.3 application patch). After you install the platform patches, you will then install the application patch. Then you will need to upgrade the database from the SSG Configuration command line.
