Install Parallels H-sphere SPU to update third-party packages to the latest available versions.

Upgrading Parallels H-Sphere Control Panel and *nix Servers:

To upgrade Parallels H-Sphere on Unix:

  1. Download Parallels H-Sphere 3.6.3 SPU  Installation/Update script available at
  2. Update the control panel:

    # sh U36.0P3 cpupdate
    # sh U36.0P3 hspackages ips=<IP of the Control Panel box>


    # sh U36.0P3 cpupdate
    # sh U36.0P3 hspackages ips=
  3. (SiteStudio users) Update the SiteStudio:

    # sh U36.0P3 sitestudio 
  4. Update the physical servers:

    • You can do it using the script:

      # sh U36.0P3 hspackages [ips=<list of selected physical servers>]   

    ips parameter value should be a comma-separated list of physical servers’ IP addresses; you may specify it if you want to update servers bunch by bunch; and if you want to update all installation at once - just omit this parameter. Additional information about installation/update script you can read in Parallels H-Sphere 3.6.2 Upgrade Guide.


    # sh U36.0P3 hspackages ips=,
    • or through the control panel:

    In E.Manager > Update > Update Boxes, select the [Unix] physical servers to update, and click Start Update.

    Note that starting from the 3.6.3 release SPU updates are published to both SPU and release package lists, resulting in installation of the latest SPU regardless of "spu"/"-P" CLI switches or corresponding server profile settings.
