20.6.1

Upgrade the version of BlueCat Gateway you are currently running to the latest version.

The following actions must be performed prior to completing the steps described in this task:
  1. Stop the DNS Integrity Gateway container by running the following command:
    docker stop bluecat_gateway
  2. Remove the existing DNS Integrity Gateway container by running the following command:
    docker rm bluecat_gateway
    Note: Removing the DNS Integrity Gateway container will not remove your configuration, workflow, or logging data as these are saved vis directories mapped to either your local machine or to Docker volumes.

    Upgrading BlueCat Gateway involves executing the same docker run command used for installation and mapping to your existing data logging directories.

    To upgrade BlueCat Gateway:

  1. Run the following command to pull the image and start the DNS Integrity Gateway container:
    docker run -d -p 80:8000 -p 443:44300 -v <mapped_data_directory>:/bluecat_gateway/ -v <mapped_log_directory>:/logs/ --name bluecat_gateway quay.io/bluecat/gateway: <BlueCat Gateway version>
    If you are using RHEL-compiled Docker, you must add :Z at the end of the file path for any mapped volume. For example:
    -v <mapped_data_directory>:/bluecat_gateway/:Z
  2. From your browser, connect to BlueCat Gateway:
    Note: When upgrading DNS Integrity Gateway the existing configuration data workflows are used.
