6.2 Upgrading MySQL Enterprise Monitor

You must upgrade your MySQL Enterprise Service Manager installation first, and your agents after the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager installation completes successfully.

Upgrade Installer

The name of the upgrade file varies, but includes the target operating system, the version installed by the upgrade, and the component name. For example, a file named mysqlenterprisemanager-4.0.0-windows-update-installer.exe updates MySQL Enterprise Service Manager on Windows to version 4.0.

Run the installation file and choose the directory of your current installation and whether or not you wish to back up your current installation. The time required to complete the process varies depending upon the nature of the update.

You can run an unattended upgrade, the same way you run an unattended install. To see all the options you can specify during the upgrade process, run the update installer with the --help option.

For more information on the unattended upgrade process, see Section 8.1.2, “MySQL Enterprise Service Manager Options”.

Service Manager Upgrade Process

Important

If using an external repository, you must upgrade it to at least MySQL Server 5.7.9 before upgrading your MySQL Enterprise Service Manager. 5.7.19 is recommended.

To upgrade MySQL Enterprise Service Manager, do the following:

  1. Select the required installation language and click Forward. The Installation Directory dialog is displayed.

  2. Confirm the location of your existing installation and click Forward. The Backup of Previous Installation dialog is displayed.

  3. If you want to backup your existing installation, select Yes and edit the Backup directory field if required.

    If you do not want to backup your existing installation, select No.

    Click Forward to continue.

    The Tomcat Server Option dialog is displayed.

  4. Confirm the values in the Tomcat Server Port and Tomcat SSL Port fields.

    Click Forward to continue.

    The Repository Configuration dialog is displayed.

  5. Confirm your repository Configuration. Click Forward to continue.

    The upgrade is now ready to install. Click Forward to upgrade your installation, or Back to review or edit any values.

    The upgrade process shuts down the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager services and performs the backup of the existing installation, if you chose to do so, then copies the new files to the installation directory, and starts the new services.

  6. The installation completes. You are prompted to launch and configure the application.

Note

If you are using LDAP and have imported your own SSL certificates into the keystore of the Java VM bundled with your MySQL Enterprise Monitor, you must extract them from the backup listed below and manually re-import them, as this upgrade included a new Java VM.

Agent Upgrade Process

To upgrade MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent, do the following:

  1. Select the required installation language and click Forward. The Installation Directory dialog is displayed.

  2. Confirm the location of your existing installation.

  3. Confirm the location of your existing installation and click Forward. The Backup and Restart Options dialog is displayed.

    • Backup the current installation check box, specify an alternate location if required. This option is enabled by default.

      If you do not want to back up your existing installation, deselect this check box.

    • Restart Agent immediately after updating all files check box. Enabled by default.

      If you want to start your agent manually, at a later time, deselect this check box.

    The installation is started and completes.
