Downloading the StorageGRID upgrade file

You must download the upgrade file to a service laptop before you upgrade your StorageGRID system. If your StorageGRID system is deployed on Linux hosts, you must also download an additional .tgz file or .zip file.

Procedure

  1. Go to the NetApp Downloads page for StorageGRID.
  2. Click the button for downloading the latest release, or select another version from the pull-down menu and click Go.
    StorageGRID software versions have this format: 11.x.y. StorageGRID hotfixes have this format: 11.x.y.z.
  3. Sign in using the username and password for your NetApp account.
  4. Read and accept the End User License Agreement.
    The downloads page for the version you selected appears. The page contains columns for new installation files and upgrade files.
  5. In the Upgrade column, select and download the upgrade archive for your platform.
  6. If your StorageGRID system is deployed on Linux hosts, download either the .tgz file or the .zip file for your Linux platform.

    You must install the RPM or DEB package on all Linux hosts before you start the upgrade.

    Note: Select the .zip file if you are running Windows on the service laptop.
