Updating the extension

This chapter describes how to update your Centreon MAP (Legacy) extension. This is done by updating the three main components:

  • Centreon MAP (Legacy) server
  • Centreon MAP (Legacy) web interface and its widget
  • Desktop client (automatically updated).

Before updating Centreon MAP (Legacy) server, we highly recommend performing a MariaDB dump (backup) of your centreon_studio database. This will allow you easily to roll back to the previous state if necessary.

Be sure to read the release notes for an explanation of features, fixes and custom procedures.

Centreon MAP (Legacy) Server

Run the following commands to upgrade your Centreon MAP (Legacy) server:

systemctl stop centreon-map
dnf update centreon-map-server
systemctl start centreon-map

This point only applies if you customized your centreon-map.conf configuration file. When updating your MAP (Legacy) module, the /etc/centreon-studio/centreon-map.conf file is not upgraded automatically; the new configuration file brought by the rpm does not replace the old file. You must copy the changes manually to your customized configuration file.

  • The old configuration file is renamed centreon-map.conf.rpmsave.
  • The upgrade installs a new centreon-map.conf file.

Run a diff between the old and the new configuration files:

diff -u /etc/centreon-studio/centreon-map.conf /etc/centreon-studio/centreon-map.conf.rpmsave

For each difference between the files, assess whether you should copy it from centreon-map.conf.rpmsave to centreon-map.conf.

Centreon MAP (Legacy) Web interface

dnf update centreon-map-web-client

Complete the upgrade by going to Administration > Extensions > Manager (module & widget parts)

Centreon MAP (Legacy) Desktop client

If the user's computer has an online connection, the desktop client is automatically upgraded to the latest version that corresponds to the server.

Alternatively, the client can be downloaded through the Monitoring > Map menu and the Desktop client button.
