Manual upgrade

If the auto upgrade fails, you can manually upgrade Hybrid Workloads agent.

  1. Download the latest Hybrid Workloads agent from Downloads.

  2. Log in to the SAP HANA server where you want to upgrade the agent.

  3. Run the following command to upgrade the agent.

rpm -Uvh <filename>

Replace the <filename> with the filename of the agent you downloaded. For example:

rpm –Uvh EnterpriseWorkloads-SAP-HANA-7.0.0-264137-x86_64.rpm

Limitation

  • If the Hybrid Workloads agent restarts during the upgrade, you must manually upgrade or roll back the Hybrid Workloads agent version.

  • After triggering the update, if you have any ongoing backup and restore jobs, the jobs will fail after the upgrade.

  • All the backup, restore, and delete jobs will fail during the upgrade.

  • The upgrade rollback fails if the old version is not on the Hybrid Workloads agent server. In this scenario, you must manually upgrade or roll back the Hybrid Workloads agent.
