Linux: Installing the RPM or DEB package on all hosts

If your StorageGRID system is deployed on Linux hosts, you must install an additional RPM or DEB package on all Linux hosts before you start the upgrade.

Before you begin

You must have downloaded one of the following .tgz or .zip files from the NetApp Downloads page for StorageGRID.
Note: Use the .zip file if you are running Windows on the service laptop.
Linux platform Additional file (choose one)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux or CentOS
  • StorageGRID-Webscale-version-RPM-uniqueID.tgz
Ubuntu or Debian
  • StorageGRID-Webscale-version-DEB-uniqueID.tgz


  1. Extract the RPM or DEB packages from the installation file.
  2. Install the RPM or DEB packages on all Linux hosts as described in Installing StorageGRID host services in the installation instructions for your Linux platform.
    The new packages are installed as additional packages. Do not remove the existing packages.
  3. For each containerized StorageGRID node on each Linux host, run the following commands in this order:
    storagegrid node stop <node-name>storagegrid node start <node-name>
    Attention: Perform this step for each node on the host, one at a time. You must wait until the node is fully up before proceeding to the next node. Make sure each node boots correctly before taking the next node down.
    Note: Do not restart the storagegrid service (systemctl restart storagegrid), because that command will bring down all nodes on the host at the same time.
