Chapter 13. Upgrading the Packages and Configuration Files

Before you upgrade the subsystem databases, install the latest updates:
# yum update
This command updates all packages on the server. If Directory Server is installed on a different host, additionally update all packages on that host as well.
During the update, Certificate System configuration files, such as /etc/pki/instance_name/subsystem/CS.cfg and /etc/pki/instance_name/server.xml, are automatically modified to the new version.
Log files generated during the Certificate System upgrade are:
  • /var/log/pki/pki-server-upgrade-version.log
  • /var/log/pki/pki-upgrade-version.log
Note that the version number in the log file's name represent the pki* package version and not the Certificate System version.
