IBM Security Guardium V10 – How to upgrade GIM (Guardium Installation Manager) Client from GUI ?

Question & Answer


How do I upgrade the current GIM version to the latest GIM version using the Guardium Appliance's GUI ?


GIM and S-TAP components are upgraded to keep up with the Operating Systems' advancements and we always recommend using the latest release to take advantage of fixes and enhancements.


Below are the step-by-step instructions on upgrading a GIM client using Guardium GUI.
1- Check the current installation of GIM and STAP in your environment on GUI

Another approach from DB-Server:

Download the latest GIM bundle from the IBM Fix Central website.
In this demonstration,
the old GIM is: 10.1.2_r100595_1
the new GIM bundle used is: 10.1.3_GIM_RedHat_r102091

2- Upload the new gim bundle for GIM via GUI.

3- Select the needed module from the available modules’ list.
