How to install StorageGRID maintenance package or hotfix releases

Last Updated:

Applies to



This article describes the procedure to be followed for installing StorageGRID maintenance packages or hotfixes.

Note: The '' script cannot be used to install a maintenance package or hotfix CD image (ISO); the installation fails and the script throws an exception.

WARNING: If services affected by the update are running, the install-update  script stops them before the update begins and restarts them after the update is completed. If services affected by the update are in an 'Error' state as displayed in the Server Manager, manually stop the services prior to performing the update and manually restart them after the update is complete.

Stopping the services will have the following impact:

  • Restarting the NMS service momentarily interrupts the ability to monitor the grid using the web-based NMS management interface.
  • Restarting FSG or CLB interrupts client access. Accordingly, schedule the downtime as required in consultation with the customer. For FSGs, follow the instructions in 'Sequence for updating Gateway Nodes' to minimize the impact on operations.

Prerequisites: Local or remote access to StorageGRID servers that require the maintenance package or hotfix.
