Upgrading a container - BlueCat Integrity - 9.5.0

Address Manager Administration Guide

Product name
BlueCat Integrity

To upgrade a container that is running on a production BlueCat DNS/DHCP Server, you should first test the new image on a BDDS appliance in a lab environment. If the container performs as expected, you can then apply the updated image to the production BDDS.

Before you begin, complete the following:

  • Back up /root/gwdata/ and /var/log/gateway/ , or the custom data and logs directories set during configuration.
  • 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 (if pulling from a local or cloud repository) and has been tagged appropriately to differentiate it from the old image. As a best practice, BlueCat recommends using proper version tags and avoiding use of the latest tag
