How to upgrade COPSSH to newer version

Hello,

 

we are using COPSSH but it is installed 2 years ago. Now I would like to do an upgrade but keeping my current configuration, files, etc.

Can someone give me an advice, how to do an upgrade? Do i have to do uninstall and then new installation or just run setup which will detect current version and run automatic upgrade ?

 

thanks

You may use steps below if the previous version is 4.x or newer:

  • Take backup of etc/ssh_host* and bin/copsshcp.config files
  • Uninstall Copssh
  • Remove remnants of the installation directory except home if your users have home directories
  • Install new Copssh
  • Restore back etc/ssh_host* bin/copsshcp.config
  • Activate users again with the same home directory if you meet problems

For Copssh versions older than 4.x, you need to perform a complete uninstallation, remove insr.directory and the service account if necessary and install the new one.

my current version is 3.1.4

my current version is 3.1.4

 

does this means that i can not just do restore of etc/ssh_host* and bin/copsshcp.config files ? If i uninstall my configuration will be lost and after new installation I have to setup everything from scratch ?

You can restore back etc/ssh_host* files to keep host keys intact. Otherwise a full removal/installation is required.
