With Attivio 5.6, we have provided an upgrade tool to assist with the upgrade process. This tool is provided in the form of an external module which is included with 5.6 but must be downloaded and installed in your existing 5.5.1 installation.
- Using the Attivio Platform 5.5.1 CLI's update command, be sure all dynamic changes have been downloaded to your Attivio project's
confdirectory fileset before you move to the next step.
Execute this command to add the upgradeproject module included with your Attivio Platform 5.6 installation into your Attivio Platform 5.5.1 installation:
<5.6 INSTALL_DIR>/installed-modules-archive/upgradeproject.ziparchive is not present, you may have selected the Core installation type for 5.6, which does not include the upgradeproject module, or may have manually removed that module from the 5.6 installation. Re-install Attivio Platform 5.6 and be sure to select the Full installation type, then return to this step.
Once the upgradeproject module is installed into Attivio Platform 5.5.1, execute the
aie-exec upgradeprojecttool in the Attivio Platform 5.5.1 installation and project first, using the following command. This will generate a report of the changes you've made in your project so that they can be preserved during the upgrade.
This will output a report file named
Next, execute the same tool using Attivio Platform 5.6, passing in the location of the
upgradeproject-changereport.txtfile which was produced in the previous step and specifying a new directory location for your upgraded project using the
The name of your new Attivio Platform 5.6 project must match that of your original Attivio Platform 5.5.1 project.
aie-exec upgradeprojecttool will create the upgraded Attivio Platform 5.6 project in the location you specify via the
-oflag. This new location is what you'll use when opening the Attivio Platform 5.6 CLI to deploy and start your project.
Finally, if your 5.5.1 project includes an older version of the Search Analytics module (any version prior to version 1.1.0), you will need to execute the
aie-exec searchanalyticsupgradetool against your upgraded project to modify its configuration so that it will work properly with the newer module version included with the Attivio Platform 5.6 installation. To do so, execute this command:
You should see output resembling the following:
Attivio 5.6 is more strict when it comes to DNS, specifically reverse DNS lookups. See the DNS Settings section of System Requirements to ensure the server is properly configured to communicate with itself and other nodes in the cluster.
To add the new Connector Admin to your upgraded project, run the
createproject tool to add the module incrementally:
