RPM Upgrades

Our Yum Repository handles all upgrades so it requires little effort to move to a new version of the Console.

  • Simply run the following:

        yum upgrade sicura-release-console
    yum —disablerepo="*" —enablerepo="sicura-console" upgrade

Note: Prior to upgrade, you may want to backup your current console install to ensure no data is lost for certain folders if you choose to downgrade for any reason.

  • Directories to backup:

        /etc/sicura/ - Stores configuration
    /var/db/sicura/ - Default database/dump location
    /opt/sicura/console - Main console install location

Upgrading to a Console Container

Provide the license key and configuration from your existing installation and start the container. The database will be automatically upgraded to support new features.

Cleaning Up RPM Install

To clean up an RPM install, you can do the following, but it is not required:

Uninstall RPMs

For SIMP Enterprise versions 6.5.3 and prior:

yum repo-pkgs simp-enterprise erase
yum repo-pkgs simp-community-simp erase
yum remove simp-release-enterprise

For Sicura Enterprise 6.5.4 and newer:

yum repo-pkgs sicura-console erase
yum remove sicura-release-console

Remove Puppet Modules

On RPM install, Puppet data is installed in /usr/share/simp/modules, and is not removed on uninstall. You can purge the /usr/share/simp directory if you don’t want to keep this data
