Update InterPlay

This topic describes how to apply service packs or patches using the Axway Installer.

Prerequisites

  • Download the product updates from Axway Support to the machine you want to update.
  • Stop the servers that you want to update.
  • If you install a service pack or patch for the Installer, make sure all Windows services created by the Installer are stopped.
  • If you install a service pack or patch to a product, make sure that the product is stopped. If the product uses a database, make sure it is up and running.
  • Before starting the update procedure, it is strongly recommended you change the location of the temporary directory by setting the TEMPORARY_DIR environment variable.
  • On Windows platforms, the same user that performed the initial installation (or at least the same type of user) must start the update launcher.

Installing updates in an interactive mode

  1. Run the Installer in update mode. Use the following commands:
    • UNIX: Go to the installation folder you want to update and run update.sh
    • Windows: In the Windows Start menu, select Axway Software > Axway [installation name] > Update
    • Using the Console: Change to the installation directory you want to update and run update.exe
  1. Select your updates. In the Updates Management page you have the following possibilities:
    • Select a directory: Select the directory containing all the updates you want to install.
    • Select file: Select the update file you want to install.
    • The file can be a .jar file or a zip archive of .jar files.
    • The Installer allows the .zip file format containing the updates to apply to more than one product in the same installation package.
    • Information: Click to open the readme file.
    • Click Next to continue.
  1. Review the updates you want to install.
  2. To apply the update:
    1. Click Update.
    2. A warning message appears. Click Yes to continue.
    3. After the updates are installed, click Next to view the summary.
  1. Review the summary and click OK to exit the Installer.
  2. View log files. The installation of updates are tracked in the install.log file, located in the installation root directory.
  3. An update log is kept for each product which contains the update history of operations performed. The location of this file is found in <installation_root>/<MyProduct>/synInstall/synPatch/update.log.

Installing updates in a non-interactive mode

To install a single update file, run the following command:

  • Unix: update.sh –i <full_path_to_update_file>
  • Windows: update.exe -i <full_path_to_update_file>

This command applies to .jar and .zip files.

The update progresses without user interaction. Once the update process is complete, the summary is displayed and you can check the log files.

The installation of updates is tracked in the updates install.log file, located in the installation root directory.

An update log is kept for each product which contains the update history of operations performed. The location of this file is found in <installation_root>/<MyProduct>/synInstall/synPatch/update.log.
