If any StorageGRID nodes are deployed on Linux hosts, you must install an additional RPM or DEB package on each of these hosts before you start the upgrade.

What you’ll need

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.

    See the steps for 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.
