Upgrading data collectors manually

Upgrade your data collectors manually to get the latest fixes and most up-to-date metadata collection.

About this task

If you disabled automatic upgrades, you must manually upgrade your data collectors. An upgrade notification is shown in IBM® Storage Insights when a new version of the data collector is available. You can click the link in the notification message or you can go to the Data Collectors page to upgrade your data collectors.

Procedure

  1. From the Configuration menu, click Data Collectors.
  2. Click Upgrade All.

    If the upgrade of a data collector fails and still runs at the previous level, the upgrade process continues to upgrade your other data collectors. However, if the upgrade of a data collector fails and its status is now Missing, your other data collectors continue to collect metadata but are not upgraded. Try to upgrade the data collectors again by using the “upgrade all” button or the Actions menu “upgrade” option.

Results

If the upgrade of a data collector fails and still runs at the previous level, the upgrade process continues to upgrade your other data collectors. However, if the upgrade of a data collector fails and its status is now Missing, your other data collectors continue to collect metadata but are not upgraded.

The data collectors are upgraded. If you encounter issues and can't complete the upgrade, you might have to download and install the latest version of the data collector.
