It is suggested that you make a copy of your BART 2.1 configuration file in case it is lost during the upgrade process. The default location and file name is /usr/edb/bart/etc/bart.cfg
You must stop the BART 2.1 WAL scanner program, bart-scanner
, before upgrading to BART 2.2 in Step 3. See Section 5.5
for information on using the WAL scanner commands. As the BART user account, invoke the following command to stop the WAL scanner:
As the root
user, upgrade to BART 2.2 with the yum upgrade
The following syntax uses the yum
command to update to the BART RPM package file that has been downloaded to the current working directory. The local package file is installed by using the complete, RPM package file name:
The BART 2.1 files in the parent /usr/edb/bart
directory are replaced by the BART 2.2 files. Check if the BART configuration file bart.cfg
found in the /usr/edb/bart/etc
directory is your original file used with BART 2.1. If it is not present, then you can use the configuration file you saved in Step 1.
Be sure the backup_path
parameter of the BART 2.2 configuration file is set to a new directory and not to any existing BART 2.1 backup catalog.
The requirement of the BART configuration file for usage by BART 2.2 applies only when installing BART 2.2 on the host from which the BART subcommands are to be invoked (that is, the BART host). If you are installing BART 2.2 on a remote host on which incremental backups are to be restored, (in other words, this is not the BART host), then the content of the BART 2.2 etc
subdirectory does not need the addition of the bart.cfg
Check that the setting of the PATH
environment variable includes the directory location of the BART 2.2 bin
subdirectory in the ~/.bashrc
files of the following user accounts:
setting should be the same as set for BART 2.1 since both versions use /usr/edb/bart/bin
Repeat the installation process described in this section to upgrade to BART 2.2 on all remote hosts where incremental backups are to be restored using BART 2.2. See Section 126.96.36.199
for additional information on restoration of incremental backups on remote hosts.
