To upgrade a container that is running on BDDS, you should first test the new image on a BDDS appliance in a Lab environment. If the container performs as expected, you can then push that updated image to the production BDDS.
Before you begin, complete the following:
- Back up /root/gwdata/ and /var/log/gateway/ from the BDDS appliance
- Back up the original image, or ensure that it is still available on the cloud or local repository
- Ensure that the new or updated image is available on the cloud or local repository and has been tagged appropriately to differentiate it from the old image. As a best practice, BlueCat recommends using proper version tags and avoid using the latest tag
