Resilient Upgrade from v37 to v39 – Pre-Check

  • 1.  Resilient Upgrade from v37 to v39 – Pre-Check

    Posted Fri January 08, 2021 09:24 AM
    Hi Team,

    We are currently on Resilient Version: v37.1.104 and looking to update to the latest Version: v39.1.42.

    There are following Pre-Check queries:

    Can upgrade be directly done to v39.1.42 from v37.1.104 or it requires to upgrade to v38 first ?
    Will the existing scripts or workflows get executed in the v39.1.42 as the python version will get changed after upgradation ?
    Do we need to upgrade both main(app) and integration(resilient_circuits) server ?
    Is it possible to share any upgradation guide for Resilient ?
    Any suggestion or recommendation wrt to the upgrade from your end. Also, any proper documentation around this would be highly appreciated.

    Please let us know the same.

    Thanks,

    Hi Akhilesh,

    You must upgrade at least one major version at a time, for instance upgrade from v37 to the latest version of 38 and then from 38 to the latest available version of 39.

    I've enclosed our Upgrade checklist:

    You are not required to upgrade circuits or AppHost when upgrading Resilient.

    Hi Akhilesh,

    In addition to Elizabeth Hecht comments:

    Last suggestion also :

    • If you are moving up more than one upgrade, you may open a ticket on support telling them that you are planning to upgrade from version A to B upgrades (more than 1) to get their feedback and attention point (if any) - and being aware of the date you are planning to do the upgrade, so they can be on the call quicker if any issue occurs (none should, of course !)

    Does the same apply to the security updates when upgrading from 37 to 39? 

    Thanks,

    No, security updates does not affect the application, just the system.
    If you want to take no risk just do a temporary snapshot of the full VM before running the security updates

    I suggest to security updates every month, even if you do not update the application.
