  9. Happy days!
  10. NOTES:
    1. After InsightIQ upgrade is complete, the Settings > Monitored Clusters page displays the Monitoring Status of clusters as Monitoring Starting while InsightIQ completes post-upgrade tasks. During this time, InsightIQ still monitors clusters. However, you might see gaps of missing information in data modules. These gaps will update after each cluster returns to a status of Latest Data:<date>.
    2. InsightIQ does not automatically gather the correct jobs and services statistics if you upgrade the OneFS version on a monitored cluster from OneFS 8.0.0 or earlier to OneFS 8.0.1 or later. In such cases, restart InsightIQ before you collect the statistics.
    3. If you have upgraded to InsightIQ version 4.1.2, the root login will no longer work over SSH. In such a scenario, you can log in to InsightIQ as an administrator user and run sudo to obtain the necessary privileges.

    Hi, I tried to follow the upgrade on my insightIQ version appliance and after hitting enter nothing happens.

    administrator@sjiiqappdevn01 tmp]$ sudo sh /tmp/
    [sudo] password for administrator:
    [administrator@sjiiqappdevn01 tmp]$

  • Trinh

    ignore my previous post. I got it working.

  • Bao Dang

    Thank you so much!

    All the best!

    I would suggest you to indicate not to use WinSCP to copy the installer from a windows machine to the IIQ Linux Machine.
    There seems to be a problem that corrupt the installer in case of using winscp.
    You can override the problem by compressing the installer ( on windows ), copying ( also with winscp ) the .zip file and then uncompressing it on the IIQ.
    In that case the installer don’t get corrupted.

    Don’t ask me how I know :)
