Checking the system's condition before applying a hotfix

You must verify the system is ready to accommodate the hotfix.


  1. Sign in to the Grid Manager using a supported browser.
  2. If possible, ensure that the system is running normally and that all grid nodes are operational.
  3. Check for and resolve any active alarms, if possible.
    For information on specific alarms, see the instructions for troubleshooting StorageGRID Webscale.
  4. Ensure there are no active maintenance procedures in progress, such as upgrade, recovery, expansion, or decommission.
    If another procedure is in progress, you must wait for it to complete. You cannot start the hotfix procedure if another maintenance procedure is in progress.
