H-Sphere 2.5 +:

This update includes the following packages:

Procedure:

  1. Run HS updater for the latest version of H-Sphere 2.5 from the directory the updater is located.
    sh U25.0P10
  2. To update
    • All packages to the latest version, execute:
      hspackages
    • PostgreSQL package to the latest version, execute:
      hspackages postgres
      Warning: If during the update process you get the message:
      WARNING: pg_hba.conf must be configured more strictly.
      it means that pg_hba.conf for a given Postgres database should be configured to restrict IP access to Postgres databases from outside the H-Sphere cluster. It is especially important to ensure that IP access to the H-Sphere system database is provided only from CP.

      Important: By default, CP PostgreSQL listens on localhost (parameter virtual_host=127.0.0.1 in PostgreSQL config file). To change this, please customize PostgreSQL config file template accordingly.

Note: If you want some packages to be skipped during update or only specific package to be updated, refer to hspackages options.
