Name

nbcomponentupdate — update the JRE version

SYNOPSIS

nbcomponentupdate -product [NetBackup | OpsCenterServer | OpsCenterAgent | OpsCenterViewBuilder | RemoteJavaConsole] -component value -path component_path | -revert [-logpath path] [-help | -?] [-dryrun | -force] [-version value] [-skipmajorversioncheck]

On UNIX systems, the directory path to this command is /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/goodies/

On Windows systems, the directory path to this command is install_path\netbackup\bin\goodies\

DESCRIPTION

This utility lets you upgrade the installed version of the JRE in Veritas NetBackup and OpsCenter products. This utility does not support JRE update for NetBackup Plug-in for VMware vCenter.

The NetBackup installed version of the JRE is the supported major version for that NetBackup release. Use this utility to update to a minor version of the supported major JRE version. For example, if NetBackup 8.0 installed JRE 1.8.0.31, the supported major version is 1.8. Use this utility to update to JRE 1.8.0.92.

Veritas recommends that you update to another major JRE version only if the JRE vendor declares an end-of-life for the installed JRE version. For example, if the JRE vendor declares an end-of-life for JRE 1.8, which is also the installed JRE version in your environment, update to JRE 1.9.

Close the product, such as NetBackup, before you attempt to update the JRE. If the product is active when you attempt the update, the utility exits with an error message that requests you to close the product.

Caution:

Do not stop the utility while the JRE update is in progress. This action can cause the product that uses the JRE, such as NetBackup, to become unstable.

If there are additional versions of the JRE installed on your system for different applications, the NetBackup JRE does not interfere with them. The NetBackup JRE does not provide integration with web browsers and does not allow Java Applets or Web Start to run. For that reason, the NetBackup JRE cannot be used in a browser-based attack that uses Java Applet or Web Start vulnerabilities.

More information about the nbcomponentupdate command is available.

If you use OpsCenter or the Remote Administration Console, the location of the command is as follows:

  • OpsCenter Server

    UNIX/Linux: SYMCOpsCenterServer/bin/

    Windows: install_path\server\bin\

  • OpsCenter Agent

    Windows: install_path\agent\bin\

  • OpsCenter View Builder

    Windows: install_path\viewbuilder\bin

  • Remote Administration Console

    Windows: install_path\java

OPTIONS

-component value

Updates the specified component. The only valid value for this option is JRE.

-dryrun

Runs a test to verify if the operation is allowed.

-force

Skips the interactive mode. If you use -force and the -product is RemoteJavaConsole, you must use the -version option.

-help | -?

Prints the help.

-logpath path

Specifies the location of the log files. By default, the logs are generated in the system temp folder. On a Windows computer, you can specify the path %temp%nbcomponentupdate_date_time.log. Please note that the behavior of the option depends on what is specified.

  • If the path you specify is a folder or a drive, the log file is generated in the specified location. If you specify -logpath as C:\logs, the log file is C:\logs\nbcomponentupdate_date_time.log.

  • If you have specified a file name for -logpath and the file does not exist in that location, a new file is created with the specified name. If you specify C:\samplelogfile.log, the logs are generated in the C:\samplelogfile.log file.

  • If you have specified a file name in the log path and the file exists in that location, the logs are appended to that file. If you specify -logpath as C:\samplelogfile.log, the logs are appended to the samplelogfile.log file.

Note:

Do not specify a network path such as an NFS or a CIFS share for the log path.

-path component_path

Specifies the path where the new version of JRE for the upgrade is located. The component_path is either the installed JRE location or the extracted JRE folder.

-product [NetBackup | OpsCenterServer | OpsCenterAgent | OpsCenterViewBuilder | RemoteJavaConsole]

Updates the JRE version of the specified product. This option is not case-sensitive. If the selected product is the NetBackup Remote Administration Console, the command lists all installed Remote Administration Console versions. You are then prompted to select a supported version of Remote Administration Console you want to update.

-revert

Reverts the currently installed update of the JRE to the previously installed JRE version.

-skipmajorversioncheck

Allows the utility to perform a JRE update to any higher major or higher minor version.

-version value

The version of the Remote Java Console that you want to upgrade or revert. This option is only available if you specify RemoteJavaConsole for the -product option. This limitation is because only the Remote Java Console maintains multiple versions that you can upgrade or revert.

If you do not specify this option, the utility lists all the installed Remote Java Console version. The utility then prompts you to select a supported version of the console to upgrade or revert. If you use the -force option, you must specify the -version option.

Name

nbcomponentupdate — update the JRE version

SYNOPSIS

nbcomponentupdate -product [NetBackup | OpsCenterServer | OpsCenterAgent | OpsCenterViewBuilder | RemoteJavaConsole] -component value -path component_path | -revert [-logpath path] [-help | -?] [-dryrun | -force] [-version value] [-skipmajorversioncheck]

On UNIX systems, the directory path to this command is /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/goodies/

On Windows systems, the directory path to this command is install_path\netbackup\bin\goodies\

DESCRIPTION

This utility lets you upgrade the installed version of the JRE in Veritas NetBackup and OpsCenter products. This utility does not support JRE update for NetBackup Plug-in for VMware vCenter.

The NetBackup installed version of the JRE is the supported major version for that NetBackup release. Use this utility to update to a minor version of the supported major JRE version. For example, if NetBackup 8.0 installed JRE 1.8.0.31, the supported major version is 1.8. Use this utility to update to JRE 1.8.0.92.

Veritas recommends that you update to another major JRE version only if the JRE vendor declares an end-of-life for the installed JRE version. For example, if the JRE vendor declares an end-of-life for JRE 1.8, which is also the installed JRE version in your environment, update to JRE 1.9.

Close the product, such as NetBackup, before you attempt to update the JRE. If the product is active when you attempt the update, the utility exits with an error message that requests you to close the product.

Caution:

Do not stop the utility while the JRE update is in progress. This action can cause the product that uses the JRE, such as NetBackup, to become unstable.

If there are additional versions of the JRE installed on your system for different applications, the NetBackup JRE does not interfere with them. The NetBackup JRE does not provide integration with web browsers and does not allow Java Applets or Web Start to run. For that reason, the NetBackup JRE cannot be used in a browser-based attack that uses Java Applet or Web Start vulnerabilities.

More information about the nbcomponentupdate command is available.

If you use OpsCenter or the Remote Administration Console, the location of the command is as follows:

  • OpsCenter Server

    UNIX/Linux: SYMCOpsCenterServer/bin/

    Windows: install_path\server\bin\

  • OpsCenter Agent

    Windows: install_path\agent\bin\

  • OpsCenter View Builder

    Windows: install_path\viewbuilder\bin

  • Remote Administration Console

    Windows: install_path\java

OPTIONS

-component value

Updates the specified component. The only valid value for this option is JRE.

-dryrun

Runs a test to verify if the operation is allowed.

-force

Skips the interactive mode. If you use -force and the -product is RemoteJavaConsole, you must use the -version option.

-help | -?

Prints the help.

-logpath path

Specifies the location of the log files. By default, the logs are generated in the system temp folder. On a Windows computer, you can specify the path %temp%nbcomponentupdate_date_time.log. Please note that the behavior of the option depends on what is specified.

  • If the path you specify is a folder or a drive, the log file is generated in the specified location. If you specify -logpath as C:\logs, the log file is C:\logs\nbcomponentupdate_date_time.log.

  • If you have specified a file name for -logpath and the file does not exist in that location, a new file is created with the specified name. If you specify C:\samplelogfile.log, the logs are generated in the C:\samplelogfile.log file.

  • If you have specified a file name in the log path and the file exists in that location, the logs are appended to that file. If you specify -logpath as C:\samplelogfile.log, the logs are appended to the samplelogfile.log file.

Note:

Do not specify a network path such as an NFS or a CIFS share for the log path.

-path component_path

Specifies the path where the new version of JRE for the upgrade is located. The component_path is either the installed JRE location or the extracted JRE folder.

-product [NetBackup | OpsCenterServer | OpsCenterAgent | OpsCenterViewBuilder | RemoteJavaConsole]

Updates the JRE version of the specified product. This option is not case-sensitive. If the selected product is the NetBackup Remote Administration Console, the command lists all installed Remote Administration Console versions. You are then prompted to select a supported version of Remote Administration Console you want to update.

-revert

Reverts the currently installed update of the JRE to the previously installed JRE version.

-skipmajorversioncheck

Allows the utility to perform a JRE update to any higher major or higher minor version.

-version value

The version of the Remote Java Console that you want to upgrade or revert. This option is only available if you specify RemoteJavaConsole for the -product option. This limitation is because only the Remote Java Console maintains multiple versions that you can upgrade or revert.

If you do not specify this option, the utility lists all the installed Remote Java Console version. The utility then prompts you to select a supported version of the console to upgrade or revert. If you use the -force option, you must specify the -version option.
