Upgrade

Dec 22, 2015

When you upgrade a StorageZones Controller to version 3, that controller will continue to use standard zones. You cannot upgrade a standard zone to a restricted zone.

To replace a standard zone with a restricted zone, you must install a new StorageZones Controller and configure a restricted zone.

Important: Be sure to read the known issues for a release before starting an upgrade.

To upgrade to StorageZones Controller 3.2 from StorageZones Controller 3.1 or 3.0.1

You can directly upgrade from StorageZones Controller 3.1 or 3.0.1 to StorageZones Controller 3.2, as described in the following steps.

If you are using StorageZones Controller 2.x, you must first upgrade to version 3.0.1, as described in To upgrade to StorageZones Controller 3.0.1 from 2.x. To upgrade versions older than 2.x, please contact ShareFile Support.

  1. From the ShareFile download page at http://www.citrix.com/downloads/sharefile.html, log on and download the latest StorageZones Controller 3.2 installer.
    Note: Installing StorageZones Controller changes the Default Web Site on the server to the installation path of the controller.
  2. On the server where you want to upgrade the primary StorageZones Controller:
    1. Run StorageCenter.msi to start the ShareFile StorageZones Controller Setup wizard.
    2. Respond to the prompts.

      When the installation completes, the wizard displays the message “Completed Citrix ShareFile StorageZones Controller Setup Wizard.”

    3. Click Finish.

      The StorageZones Controller console opens.

      Important: If you plan to clone the StorageZones Controller, do not proceed with configuration. Capture the disk image and then configure each StorageZones Controller.

      To return to the StorageZones Controller console at any time, open http://localhost/configservice/login.aspx or start the configuration tool from the Start menu.

      After you click Finish or return to the StorageZones Controller console, the Logon page opens.

    4. To change any of the displayed information, click Modify, make your changes, and then click Save.
  3. Verify the registry settings on the primary StorageZones Controller:

    Not all upgrade paths add the registry settings needed to increase the number of files per zone. To enable that feature, verify that the settings are included in the registry. For details, see Increase the number of files per zone.

  4. On each secondary StorageZones Controller:
    1. Run StorageCenter.msi to start the ShareFile StorageZones Controller Setup wizard.
    2. Respond to the prompts and then click Finish.

      The StorageZones Controller console Logon page opens.

    3. Log on. To change any of the displayed information, click Modify, make your changes, and then click Save.
  5. Restart the IIS server of all zone members.
