Upgrading Unified Manager on Windows

You can upgrade Unified Manager 7.3 or 9.4 to Unified Manager 9.5 by downloading and running the installation file on the Windows platform.

Before you begin

About this task

During the upgrade process, Unified Manager is unavailable. You should complete any running operations before upgrading Unified Manager.

If Unified Manager is paired with an instance of OnCommand Workflow Automation, and there are new versions of software available for both products, you must disconnect the two products and then set up a new Workflow Automation connection after performing the upgrades. If you are performing an upgrade to only one of the products, then you should log into Workflow Automation after the upgrade and verify that it is still acquiring data from Unified Manager.


  1. Log in to the NetApp Support Site, and locate the Download page for installing Unified Manager on the Windows platform.
  2. Download the Unified Manager Windows installation file to a target directory in the Windows system.
  3. If Unified Manager is configured for high availability, stop all the Unified Manager services on the first node by using Microsoft Cluster Server, and then start the MySQL service from services.msc.
  4. Right-click and run the Unified Manager installer executable (.exe) file as an administrator.
    Unified Manager prompts you with the following message:
    This setup will perform an upgrade of ‘OnCommand Unified Manager’. Do you want to continue?
  5. Click Yes, and then click Next.
  6. Enter the MySQL root password that was set during installation, and click Next.
  7. After the upgrade is successful, if the system is configured for high availability, start all the Unified Manager services from the Failover Cluster Manager and follow the remaining tasks.
  8. From the command prompt, run the ha_setup.pl script to configure the new services in the failover cluster and the files that are present in the shared location.
    C:\Program Files\NetApp\ocum\bin> perl .\ha_setup.pl --upgrade --first -t mscs -g kjaggrp -i "New IP Address1" -n scs8003.englab.company.com -k "Cluster Disk 2" -f E:\ -u user -p userpass
  9. Stop all the Unified Manager services (ocie, ocieau, and MySQL) in the first node by using Microsoft Cluster Server.
  10. Start the MySQL service on the second node from services.msc.
  11. Switch the service group to the second node in the high-availability setup.
  12. Upgrade Unified Manager on the second node.
  13. At the command prompt, enter Y to continue, or enter any other character to abort.
    The upgrade and restart processes of the Unified Manager services can take several minutes to complete.
  14. Start all the Unified Manager services on both the nodes using Microsoft Cluster Server.
  15. From the command prompt, run the ha_setup.pl script with the --upgrade option.
    perl ha_setup.pl --upgrade --join -t mscs -f E:\
  16. Log in to the Unified Manager web UI, and verify the version number.
