To migrate the Adapter to a new version in a multiple-Adapter deployment, follow these steps for each installation of the Adapter:

  1. Create a new install location. The default location is /opt/InCharge/ASAM. Retain this location and create a new location, as follows:
    /opt/InCharge/<New Unique Directory Name>/ASAM

    Where <New Unique Directory Name> represents the new version of the Adapter. For example, to upgrade to version, you might name the directory as follows:


  2. In the new installation directory, install the Adapter, as described in “Installing the Adapter” .
  3. Also in the new installation directory, install the patch, as described in the Patch Notes.
  4. In the original installation directory, stop the Adapter server. If the Adapter is running as a service, use the stop command to stop the server. For example,
    sm_service stop ic-alcatel-sam
  5. Migrate services to the new installation:
    1. In the original installation directory, if the Adapter service is manually installed, manually uninstall the service, as follows:


      sm_service remove ic-alcatel-sam
      tC:\InCharge\ASAM\smarts\bin> sm_service.exe remove ic-alcatel-sams
    2. In the new installation directory, manually install the service in the new directory. For example, issue the following command to install the service:


      ▼bin/sm_service install
      --description=”VMware Smart Assurance Adapter for Alcatel-Lucent 5620 SAM EMS”
      /opt/InCharge/<New Unique Directory
  6. Complete the migration process, as described in “Migrating to version 3.5”.
  7. Migrate the .rps file from the original installation directory, InCharge/ASAM/smarts/local/repos/icf to the new directory, as follows:
    InCharge/<New Unique Directory Name>/ASAM/smarts/local/repos/icf
  8. In the new installation directory, start the Adapter server.
  9. Perform a full discovery.

    Do not remove or uninstall the older version of the Adapter until your evaluation is complete.
