Silent upgrade

Before you attempt to upgrade NetBackup Self Service, confirm that NetBackup Self Service is installed on the current computer.

To upgrade NetBackup Self Service silently:

  1. Create back up copies of the NetBackup Self Service databases. By default, they are named NetBackupSelfService and NetBackupSelfServiceNetBackupAdapter. Create backups from either the command line or from SQL Management Server.
  2. The silent upgrade can collect all required information from the existing NetBackup Self Service installation. You do not need to configure anything before you launch the upgrade.

    Right click the install_directory\Silent Files\Silent Upgrade.bat and select Run as administrator. The upgrade starts and a command-line window displays the upgrade progress. The command-line window closes after the upgrade completes.

    You can also launch the silent upgrade directly from the command line. Open a command prompt, change to the directory that contains the SilentUpgrade.bat file, and then run SilentUpgrade.bat.

An upgrade log file, log_timestamp_upgrade.log, is generated in the same directory as the SilentUpgrade.bat file. Review this file to see the upgrade results. If you see Upgrade succeeded at the end of the file, the upgrade was successful. If you see Upgrade failed, the upgrade was not successful. If the upgrade failed, troubleshooting information is found in the upgrade log.
