  • 1.  Can I update the ubuntu OS for XMC, Analytics and Control VMs?

    Posted 12-15-2021 13:36
    I was wondering if I could do a dist-upgrade on my VM's for Extreme Management Center, Extreme Analytics and Extreme Control.

    Has anyone taken it up to Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and still have all the Extreme stuff survive and run without any issues?

    Thanks!

    Hello Keith,

    Ubuntu OS updates are part of the update file for XMC, Control,... Because of the big amount of depentencies, it's not a good idea to do a dist-upgrade!

    Ok I just did an apt-get upgrade to upgrade some existing packages.  Stil on 18.04 but I got my vulnerabilities down from over 200 to 103.

    Running 8.5.6.17.

    The better approach is to upgrade to XIQ-SE 21.11.
    You will have officially supported setup and number of vulnerabilities will be even lower.
    There is no cost associated with the upgrade
    There is no feature deprecated (all java is now available in OneView)
    There is no capacity lost with the upgrade

    Is there a how-to document?  Is it as easy as uploading the upgrade file and executing it, just like past netsight/xmc, purview/analytics, nac/control products?
