Upgrade

The Upgrade operation allows you to apply a software patch to the server from the UI. Each patch is in the ZIP format and is a collection of files and directories organized in the same manner as the home directory of the application server.

The most critical patches are officially delivered as cumulative patches.

Information note

You should inspect the currently running Operations and either let them finish or STOP them before the upgrade.

You may disable all schedules without deleting them by selecting the schedules you wish to set in the list and right-clicking.

MIMM Cumulative Patch Upgrade

Contains patches for the application server and UI, in the format:

MIMM-CumulativePatch-1010-20200423.zip

They are delivered in the patch ZIP file in the path tomcat/webapps. These cumulative patches include an updated MM.war file which will be automatically deployed by the Tomcat web application server once there are no active operations (e.g., database maintenance or model import).

Information note

However, the above upgrade process will NOT wait for all users to be logged out.

Information note

The date displayed is the date of from the $MM_HOME/tomcat/webapps/MM.war which can be slightly older than the TDC cumulative patch if that patch did not provide and updated .war file.

Information note

While Tomcat is re-deploying the new .war file, users may temporarily experience this error message:

Request to the server failed .

Information note

Some TDC patches will cause a database upgrade to be required. If so, you must sign in and then the log of that database upgrade is presented.

If you wish to see an older database upgrade log, it can be retrieved from the log files in the $MM_HOME/data/logs/tomcat folder.
