Upgrading Analytics & On-Demand Analytics


You will need a /localdata-share directory on the Analytics Server, this should NOT be an NFS mount like it is on the On-Demand Analytics Server.

  1. Execute the following command to switch to root user:

    sudo su -i


    If prompted, enter the user password.

  2. Extract the contents of the tar file:

    tar -xvf brainspace-<version number>.tar

  3. In the directory where the tar file was extracted go into the new version directory and start the install:

    cd brainspace-<version number>

    After the command is executed, the following menu will open:

  4. Highlight ANALYTICS/ON-DEMAND Server, and then press Enter on your keyboard.

      To see how to configure this see Configure the data and localdata shares.

    The brainspace.DBConfig file should look similar to this:
