6.2 Preparing to Upgrade to BCC 1.2.2 on OES 2 SP3

Upgrading to BCC 1.2.2 for OES 2 SP3 assumes that you have previously installed BCC 1.2.1 on OES 2 SP2 in an existing business continuity cluster.

  1. For each node in every peer cluster, apply all patches for OES 2 SP2.

  2. For the Identity Manager node of each peer cluster:

    1. On the Identity Manager node in every peer cluster, save the BCC driver configuration information, then stop the BCC drivers.

    2. Stop ndsd by entering

      /etc/init.d/ndsd stop
    3. Upgrade to IDM 3.6.1 as described in Section 5.0, Upgrading to Identity Manager 3.6.1.

    4. Apply all Identity Manager maintenance patches on the IDM node in each peer cluster.

      The IDM 3.6.1 Engine Patch 3 Build 3.6.14 or later version is required.

    5. Apply the IDM 3.6.1 OES 2 SP3 Compatibility Patch 1 (TID #5090210) on the IDM node in each peer cluster.

    6. Start ndsd by entering

      /etc/init.d/ndsd start
    7. Do not restart or re-create the drivers at this time.

  3. For each peer cluster, perform a rolling cluster upgrade from OES 2 SP2 to OES 2 SP3 on each node of the cluster, and apply all patches.
