Upgrading VCS using response files

Typically, you can use the response file that the installer generates after you perform VCS upgrade on one system to upgrade VCS on other systems.

To perform automated VCS upgrade

  1. Make sure the systems where you want to upgrade VCS meet the upgrade requirements.
  2. Make sure the pre-upgrade tasks are completed.
  3. Copy the response file to the system where you want to upgrade VCS.

    See Sample response file for full upgrade of VCS.

  4. Edit the values of the response file variables as necessary.

    See Response file variables to upgrade VCS.

  5. Mount the product disc and navigate to the folder that contains the installation program.
  6. Start the upgrade from the system to which you copied the response file. For example:
    # ./installer -responsefile /tmp/response_file

    Where /tmp/response_file is the response file's full path name.
