Upgrade the version of Discovery & Visibility GCP that you are currently running to the latest version.
Attention:
  • When you upgrade to a later version of Discovery & Visibility GCP, the state of the visibility jobs are not maintained upon upgrade and you must rerun discovery and visibility.
  • Once you run discovery and visibility jobs on the upgraded version of Discovery & Visibility GCP, the UDFs from the older version of Discovery & Visibility GCP are replaced with the updated UDFs from the current version. There is no backwards compatibility and you cannot run an older version of Discovery & Visibility GCP.
  • If you are upgrading Discovery & Visibility GCP that has been deployed on a BDDS, refer to Upgrading Gateway in the Address Manager Administration Guide for details on upgrading the container.

Before you begin:

The following actions must be performed prior to completing the steps described in the next section:
  1. Stop the Discovery & Visibility GCP container by running the following command:
    docker stop <gateway_container_name>
  2. Remove the Discovery & Visibility GCP container by running the following command:
    docker rm <gateway_container_name>
    Note: Removing the Discovery & Visibility GCP container will not remove your workspace or logging data, as these are saved via directories mapped to either your local machine or Docker volume.

Upgrading your Discovery & Visibility GCP container involves executing the same docker run command used for installation and mapping to your existing workspace and logging directories.

To upgrade your Discovery & Visibility GCP container:
  1. From the host machine, run the following command:
    docker login quay.io
  2. At the prompt, enter your Quay user name and password obtained when generating the encrypted password.
  3. Download the Discovery & Visibility GCP Adaptive Application from Quay using the following command:
    docker pull quay.io/bluecat/gcp_discovery_visibility:<latest_version>
  4. Start the upgraded Discovery & Visibility GCP image using the following command:
    docker run -d \
    -p 80:8000 \
    -p 443:44300 \
    -v <path_to_mapped_log_directory>:/logs/ \
    -e BAM_IP=<your_bam_ip_address> \
    --name <gateway_container_name> \
    quay.io/bluecat/gcp_discovery_visibility:<latest_version>
