HOWTO update the P5 software on an ARDIS DDP device
Posted by Andre Kuehnemund, Last modified by Andre Kuehnemund on 09 August 2019 16:07

On an Ardis DDP device (http://www.dynamicdrivepool.com/), P5 is installed under /tmp/avfs-dbase/aw. To update the P5 software, download the current Linux installer(https://p5.archiware.com/download), then follow these instructions.

The examples assume the DDP uses IP address 192.168.222.88 and the P5 version to be installed is 5.1.6. Please adjust as needed.

 

 IMPORTANT: It is highly recommended to make a backup copy of the current 'aw' folder before updating the software!!!

 

1. Copy the awpst5xx.tgz installer from your workstation to the DDP, e.g.: scp ./Downloads/awpst516.tgz root@192.168.222.88:

2. Open a secure shell connection to the DDP, e.g.: ssh root@192.168.222.88

3. Copy the P5 installer to the P5 installation folder, e.g.: cp /root/awpst516.tgz /tmp/avfs-dbase/aw/

4. Change to P5 install folder: cd /tmp/avfs-dbase/aw/

5. Stop P5: ./stop-server

6. Extract installer files: tar zxvf awpst516.tgz

7. Start P5: ./start-server , wait for success message

8. Login to P5 running on the DDP by going to http://[DDPs_IP_address]:8000/login

If you have the DDP connected as a client on on a p5 server can you use the update button on the server to update on the DDP?

To the best of my knowledge it won't work due to the fact that P5 is installed on a DDP under a custom path, i.e. not user the default path of '/usr/local/aw/'.
