The Lumeta 4.5 upgrade package upgrades the Lumeta Enterprise Command Center and Enterprise Scout. 

This upgrade will preserve your current configuration for users, roles, organizations, zones, collectors, Scouts, and system connections. The FIPS state (i.e., enabled or disabled) any any changes you've made to the Martian packet logging in vi /etc/sysctl.conf file are maintained during the upgrade. Orphaned attributes (i.e., those not associated with any device) and all certificates are cleaned off of the Lumeta database upon upgrade. Custom queries, dashboards and reports carry through from one release to the next. 

Upgrade packages are available for download in the FireMon User Center, on the Downloads page. The upgrade procedure follows.

  1. Get Ready

    1. Check Prerequisites

    2. Review Release Notes

    3. Back Up Your System

      1. Export Configuration

      2. Export Custom Device Profile Patterns
         

  2. Upgrade

    We recommend that you upgrade your Lumeta Enterprise Scouts when you upgrade your Command Center. However, Enterprise Scouts can be up to 2 versions behind the Command Center Version.  For example, if the Command Center is 4.4, then supported scout versions are 4.2, 4.3, and 4.4. 

    1. Upgrade Your Command Center (CC) from the GUI.
      1. If you have not done so already, download the upgrade package you need from the FireMon User Center > Downloads page to your local system.
      2. On the main menu of your Lumeta Command Center, browse to SettingsLumeta Systems.

      3. In the Available Systems pane, select the Command Center you want to upgrade.

      4. In the System Information pane, click Upgrade.

      5. Select the upgrade file you saved locally and then click Lumeta Upgrade.
        The Command Center upgrades.

    2. Upgrade All Scouts Connected to Your CC from the CC's GUI
      1. Ensure that the upgrade package you need has been downloaded to your local system from the FireMon User Center > Downloads page.
      2. On the main menu of your Lumeta Command Center, browse to Settings > Lumeta Systems.

      3. In the Available Systems pane, select the Command Center whose connected Scouts you want to upgrade.

      4. In the same pane, choose Upgrade Connected Scouts.

      5. Select the upgrade file you saved locally and then click Lumeta Upgrade.

        1. The distributed upgrade runs in the background. You can monitor its progress by browsing to the All Notifications report (Reports > Browse Real-Time > All Notifications).
        2. The Scouts reboot when the upgrade is complete.
        3. All Enterprise Scouts connected to the Command Center upgrade.
      6. Spot-check to validate that the Scouts upgraded by browsing to their IP addresses and making sure their version number is up-ticked as expected. 
    3. Optional: Instead of Upgrade from UI, Upgrade from the CLI
      To  upgrade from the Command-Line Interface (CLI) of any Enterprise Lumeta component––Command Center or Enterprise Scout:

      1. Use this syntax to upgrade:
        system upgrade <path to the upgrade file>

        1. If the upgrade file resides on an SSH server, then the path takes the form user@host:/path/to/file
        2. Otherwise, use an SSH client like WinSCP or FileZilla to copy the file to the Lumeta system. In this case, the path takes the form /path/to/file.
          Whichever Lumeta component you are logged into, upgrades.
      2. Wait for the system to reboot.
        Your Lumeta component has successfully upgraded!

  3. Validate the Upgrade
    1. Check Version & Configuration

    2. Enable Collectors
