Upgrade

Important: The upgrade is supported from Azure CSP Integration version 1.1 to 1.2.

  1. Unzip the application package AzureCloudSolutionProvider-1.2-7.app.zip. The endpoint package (AzureCSP-1.2.7.zip file) contains 3 files:

    • data.zip
    • install.bat
    • update.bat
  2. Copy them to the endpoint host. The upgrade is run by update.bat.
  3. To start the upgrade of the endpoint default instance, which was installed to the default location for the unnamed instance (“%ProgramFiles%\Odin\Azure CSP”) using “Integrated Security” to connect to the database, run this file without any arguments. After the finishing, the console window will stay open.
  4. Login to Odin Automation as a provider, import new Azure CSP package and upgrade the application instance.
  5. After the upgrade to Azure CSP 1.2, update Odin Automation billing online store and CP customizations with https://kb.odin.com/en/127372 and https://kb.odin.com/en/127370.

The upgrade script can be run with the following command line arguments:

Name Description Default Value
SILENT Run in the silent mode. If set to "Yes", the console window will close on finishing the upgrade. No
INSTANCENAME It allows to specify the name of the instance to be upgraded, if it is installed in the default location for the named instances ("%ProgramFiles%\Odin\Azure CSP` (%INSTANCENAME%"). Empty
TARGETDIR It allows to specify the target directory where the upgrading instance is installed. You can use this setting if an instance was installed to a non-default location. If this setting is specified in the command line, then “INSTANCENAME” setting is ignored. “%ProgramFiles%\Odin\Azure CSP” for the default instance and “%ProgramFiles%\Odin\Azure CSP (%INSTANCENAME%)” for a named instance (if “INSTANCENAME” is passed via the command line). “%ProgramFiles%\Odin\Azure CSP” for the default instance and “%ProgramFiles%\Odin\Azure CSP (%INSTANCENAME%)” for a named instance (if “INSTANCENAME” is passed via the command line).
DBLOGIN and DBPASSWORD Database administrator login and password. It allows to pass the login and password to access the database to make the upgrade of the database, if “Integrated security” is not used or a user running “update.bat” doesn’t have an administrative permissions to the database. "sa" for DBLOGIN and empty for DBPASSWORD, which means “use the integrated security”.
