Version: 1 from 29.11.2022

Description

Please follow the following steps to upgrade the PowerConnect application from Support Pack 7.X to 8.0.

  • Log into the managed system where the upgrade is planned and execute the /n/bnwvs/main transaction.

  • Stop the collector job by selecting the ”Stop Collector” button .

  • Wait to confirm that all metrics have been sent to Splunk.

  • Stop the remaining jobs using the “Toggle Uploader” and the “Stop Check Job” buttons.

  • Important: Clean-up all metric tables using the Goto->Troubleshooting->Truncate cluster functionality. More detailed instructions on the Truncate cluster functionality is available using this link: KB 63 - How to remove all collected metrics. This step is mandatory, since the metric serialization approach is changed, and it will cause issues once uploading is started after upgrade:
