Step 1: 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 directory.
Step 2: 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:
Step 3: As the root user, upgrade to BART 2.2 with the yum upgrade command.
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:
yum upgrade edb-bart-2.2.x-x.rhel7.x86_64.rpm
Step 4: 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.
Note: 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 file.
Step 5: Check that the setting of the PATH environment variable includes the directory location of the BART 2.2 bin subdirectory in the ~/.bashrc or ~/.bash_profile files of the following user accounts:
Note: The PATH setting should be the same as set for BART 2.1 since both versions use /usr/edb/bart/bin.
Step 6: 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 2.2.5.2 for additional information on restoration of incremental backups on remote hosts.
