21.2 Updating a Single-Server System from Vibe 3 to Vibe 3.3

When you update a single-server Novell Vibe installation from Vibe 3 to Vibe 3.3, you need to update the Vibe software and the Vibe database separately. You can update the software and database in whichever order you prefer.

21.2.1 Backing Up Vibe Data

Ensure that your Vibe data is backed up before you begin the update process. For information about the data that needs to be backed up, see Backing Up Vibe Data in the Novell Vibe 3.3 Administration Guide.

21.2.2 Updating the Vibe Database

When you update to Vibe 3.3, the Vibe Installation program does not update the database as part of the Vibe software update. Therefore, you must manually run the database update scripts after you have stopped Vibe:

  1. Ensure that you have a current backup of your Vibe 3 system.

  2. Stop Vibe.

  3. Ensure that no application (such as a command prompt or Windows Explorer) is running on the Vibe 3 system.

  4. Change to the directory where the Vibe 3.3 installation program is located.

  5. Unzip the teaming-3.3.n-sql.zip file to create the update-3.0.0-3.1.n, update-3.1.0-3.2.n, and update-3.2.0-3.3.n directories.

    The update-3.0.0-3.1.0, update-3.1.0-3.2.n and update-3.2.0-3.3.n directories contain update scripts for each type of database (MySQL, Microsoft SQL, and Oracle).

  6. Use the database utility for your database type to run the corresponding script for your database from the update-3.0.0-3.1.0, update-3.1.0-3.2.n and update-3.2.0-3.3.n directories:


    mysql -uusername -ppassword< "/path/update-mysql.sql"

    Microsoft SQL:

    osql -Uusername -Ppassword -i update-sqlserver.sql

    You can also use the script with the SQL Server Express Utility to update the database.


    sqlplus "/ as sysdba"
    SQL>spool update-oracle.out;

    NOTE:You must run each database update script in the correct order: first run the update script for Vibe 3 to 3.1, then run the script for Vibe 3.1 to Vibe 3.2, then run the script for Vibe 3.2 to Vibe 3.3.

  7. Continue with Section 20.2.3, Updating the Vibe Software.

21.2.3 Updating the Vibe Software

  1. Make sure you have a current backup of your Vibe 3 system.

  2. Stop Vibe.

  3. Ensure that no application (such as a command prompt or Windows Explorer) is running on the Vibe 3 system.

  4. Copy the installer.xml file from the directory where the Vibe 3 Installation program is located to the directory where you have extracted the Vibe 3.3 software.

    You must obtain a new license-key.xml file when you upgrade to Vibe 3.3.

    The installer.xml file provides default values when you run the Vibe 3.3 Installation program.

  5. Start the Vibe 3.3 installation program.

    If you need assistance with this task, see the detailed installation instructions for the platform where you are updating Vibe:

  6. Accept the License Agreement, then click Next.

    Because you provided your Vibe 3 installer.xml file in the directory with the Vibe 3.3 installation program, the Update software and settings installation option is selected by default.

  7. Click Next to continue.

  8. Click Yes to let the Installation program know that you have stopped Vibe.

  9. Select the check box to let the installation program know that you have backed up all of your data, then click Next.

  10. Select Basic or Advanced, depending on the type of Vibe installation you are updating, then click Next.

    For more information about the differences between basic and advanced installations, see Section 3.1, What Is a Basic Vibe Installation? and Section 9.1, What Is an Advanced Installation?.

  11. Continue through the installation process, retaining or changing configuration information depending on the needs of your Vibe 3.3 system.

  12. Click Install when you are ready to perform the update.

  13. Click Finish when the update is completed.

  14. If you have not yet updated the Vibe database, complete Section 20.2.2, Updating the Vibe Database from 3.1 to 3.3 before you start Vibe.

  15. Start Vibe 3.3 in the same way that you have been starting Vibe 3.

    When you start Vibe for the first time after the update, it takes longer to start than usual because data in the Vibe database must be updated before the Vibe site is ready to use.
