If you encounter any issues during upgrades or maintenance, you can revert your instance to the previous software version.

Run the set boot-version command to select the software version that you want BlueCat AWS Virtual Appliances to launch on the next boot of the server.

To rollback your instance to a previous software version, you must connect to your BlueCat appliance via SSH and run the set boot-version command from the command line interface.

After successfully connecting to your instances, you can now access the BlueCat AWS Virtual Appliances command-line interface using sudo su - admin.

To roll back your instance:

  1. SSH to your BlueCat virtual appliance as an admin user.
  2. From the Main Session mode, type configure system and press ENTER.
  3. Type set boot-version and press ENTER.
  4. Select the software version to load on your next system startup.
    Adonis:configure:system> set boot-version
    Select the software version to load on system startup:
     1. BlueCat Networks (version Adonis 9.0.0-xxx.GA.bcn)
     2. BlueCat Networks (version Adonis 8.3.2-xxx.GA.bcn) [selected]
     0. Exit
Note: When you select to boot from a point release, you will get the latest patch version for that release. For example, if you select version 8.3.0, the boot version will actually be version 8.3.2.
