Upgrade the Proxy

Uyuni Proxies are managed in the same way as clients. Maintenance updates (MU) can be installed on a Uyuni Proxy in the same way as other clients. MU updates require a restart of the proxy service.

Before you perform any proxy update, schedule a maintenance window. The clients registered to Uyuni through the proxy will not be able to connect to Uyuni while the update is in progress. For more information about maintenance windows, see administration:maintenance-window.adoc.

Uyuni uses an X.Y.Z versioning schema. To determine which upgrade procedure you need, look at which part of the version number is changing.

X upgrades

Upgrading to the next major version. For example, upgrading from 3.2 to 4.0 or to 4.1. See upgrade:proxy-x.adoc.

Y upgrades

Upgrading to the next minor version. This is often referred to as a service pack migration. For example, upgrading from 4.0 to 4.1. See upgrade:proxy-y-z.adoc.

Z upgrades: Upgrading within the same minor version. This is often referred to as a maintenance update. For example, upgrading from 4.0.0 to 4.0.2. See upgrade:proxy-y-z.adoc.
