Backup Exec RALUS update

Created: 08 Aug 2012 | 3 comments


I have few Red Hat machines running RALUS 12.5. I would like to upgrade them to 2012. How do i need to do that? Do i need to uninstall the old one first, then install the new one or just run the installation and the old one will be upgraded?

Thanks in advance!

Don't forget to give a "Thumbs Up" or Mark as "Solution" if someones advice has helped you.

No need to uninstall. RALUS installer can handle upgrades, it will detect previous version and upgrade to BE 2012. Upgrading will help retaining your publishing to BE Server details too.

Don't forget to update your RALUS.  After you upgrade to BE 2012, you need to upgrade to SP1a if your installer does not include SP1.  After that you need to run LU to get in some more fixes.  After you have installed SP1 and all the fixes, you need to update your BE 2012 RALUS which has been previously installed.  See my blog below
