Upgrade or downgrade FM plugin

The following section describes the procedure to upgrade a FM plugin to a new version without downtime. This procedure is advantageous since the user will be able to access the plugin even during the upgrade.

The plugin can also be upgraded by using the procedure that involves downtime. This procedure remains the same as that for the Cloud Foundry apps. For information on upgrading procedure with downtime, refer Upgrade a CF application (with downtime).

Upgrade a FM plugin to a new version

To upgrade a FM plugin to a new version (without downtime), proceed with the following steps:

  1. In the "My Applications" screen, select "Fleet Manager Plugin" and choose the FM plugin that you want to upgrade to a new version.

  2. Click "Deployment" tab and deploy the plugin. For information on deploying the plugin, refer Deploy or undeploy CF applications.

  3. Click the "Versions" tab and click "Register to Test".

  4. To confirm the update, click "Confirm Update". In the confirmation dialog box, click "Yes".

    After confirming the update, you can view the status of each stage of the update in the "Versions" screen.

    After the upgrade is completed successfully, the status of the application is changed to "Deployed".

NOTE

  • Two versions of the same FM plugin cannot be used simultaneously.

  • If more than two versions of the same plugin are available, then auto-deployment will be enabled only for any two versions of the plugin, and will be disabled for the other versions.
