I am referfing this procedure for the upgarde .. In many cases, it is desirable to upgrade a virtual appliance by deploying a virtual appliance at the newer version and importing the old configuration. For example, the size of the traffic manager disk image was increased in version 9.7, and deploying a new virtual appliance lets a customer take advantage of this larger disk. This article documents the procedure for deploying a new virtual appliance with the old configuration in common scenarios. These instructions describe how to upgrade and reinstall Brocade Virtual Traffic Manager appliance instances (either in a cluster or standalone appliances). For instructions on upgrading on other platforms, please refer to Upgrading Stingray Traffic Manager. Upgrading a standalone Virtual Appliance This process will replace a standalone virtual appliance with another virtual appliance with the same configuration (including migrating network configuration). Note that the Brocade Virtual Traffic Manager Cloud Getting Started Guide contains instructions for upgrading a standalone EC2 instance from version 9.7 onwards; if upgrading from a version prior to 9.7 and using the Stingray Application Firewall (now Brocade Virtual Web Application Firewall) these instructions must be followed to correctly back up and restore any firewall configuration. 1. Make a backup of the traffic manager configuration (See section "System > Backups" in the Brocade Virtual Traffic Manager User Manual), and export it. 2. If you are upgrading from a version prior to 9.7 and are using the Stingray Application Firewall, back up the Stingray Application Firewall configuration 1. Log on to a command line 2. Run /opt/zeus/stop-zeus 3. Copy /opt/zeus/zeusafm/current/var/lib/config.db off the appliance. 3. Shut down the original appliance. 4. Deploy a new appliance with the same network interfaces as the original. 5. If you backed up the application firewall configuration earlier, restore it here onto the new appliance, before you restore the traffic manager configuration: 1. Copy the config.db file to /opt/zeus/stingrayafm/current/var/lib/config.db (overwriting the original) 2. Check that the owner on the config.db file is root, and the mode is 0644. 6. Import and restore the traffic manager configuration via the UI. 7. If you have application firewall errors 1. Use the Diagnose page to automatically fix any configuration errors 2. Reset the Traffic Manager software.
