Minor WAPT server update

Debian

Hint

This process is only valid for Debian (Ubuntu Here).

  • Before updating, if not done already apply this configuration to your repositories.

  • If it is correct, execute the following block.

export DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive
apt update
apt install tis-waptserver tis-waptsetup
unset DEBIAN_FRONTEND
  • Then run the post-configuring script.

Attention

For post-configuration to work properly, you must first have properly configured the hostname of the WAPT server. To check, use the command echo $(hostname) which must return the DNS address that will be used by WAPT agents on client computers.

Warning

The post-configuration script rewrites the nginx configuration.

If you use a special configuration, save your wapt.conf file with the command

cp /etc/nginx/sites-available/wapt.conf /etc/nginx/sites-available/wapt.conf.old

It will be necessary to overwrite the configuration after the post-configuration with the command :

cp /etc/nginx/sites-available/wapt.conf.old /etc/nginx/sites-available/wapt.conf

Hint

This post-configuration script must be run as root.

Post-configuration

Warning

On WAPT 2.1 licence activation is changed. It’s necessary to run the post-configuration script.

Attention

For post-configuration to work properly, you must first have properly configured the hostname of the WAPT server. To check, use the command echo $(hostname) which must return the DNS address that will be used by WAPT agents on client computers.

Warning

The post-configuration script rewrites the nginx configuration.

If you use a special configuration, save your wapt.conf file with the command

cp /etc/nginx/sites-available/wapt.conf /etc/nginx/sites-available/wapt.conf.old

It will be necessary to overwrite the configuration after the post-configuration with the command :

cp /etc/nginx/sites-available/wapt.conf.old /etc/nginx/sites-available/wapt.conf

Hint

This post-configuration script must be run as root.

    • If you have personalized the configuration of Nginx, do not answer Yes when the post-configuration ask you to configure Nginx.

    Attention

    • With WAPT 1.8 post-configuration, WAPT WUA packages will be moved from their current storage location to waptwua root folder (/var/www/waptwua).

    • If repository replication has been set, all KB/CAB packages will be re-synchronized on remote repositories.

    The password requested in step 4 is used to access the WAPT console.

  • Start the WAPT Server.

    systemctl restart waptserver
    
  • Upgrade the WAPT console by following the same set of steps as installing the WAPT console.

  • Then create the WAPT agent.

    You will have to keep the same prefix for your packages and change nothing in relation to the private key/ public certificate pair!

    This will generate a waptupgrade package in the private repository.

    Note

    There are two methods for deploying the updates:

    • Using a GPO and waptdeploy.

    • Using a waptupgrade package and deploy it using WAPT.

  • Update the WAPT agents.

    The steps to follow to update WAPT agents are the same as the ones to first install the WAPT agents.

    Download and install the latest version of the WAPT agent by visiting http://wapt.mydomain.lan/wapt/waptagent.exe.

    As mentioned above, this procedure may be made automatic with a GPO or a waptupgrade package.

  • Minor update for CentOS.

  • Minor update for Windows.

Attention

  • Debian Jessie is now deprecated. WAPT 1.8 will not work with old Debian versions.

  • Consider migrating your existing WAPT installation to Debian Buster or CentOS7.

CentOS

  • First of all, update the CentOS/ RedHat underlying distribution.

    yum update
    

Enterprise

Modify the repository address then launch the upgrade.

Hint

To access WAPT Enterprise ressources, you must use the username and password provided by our sales department.

Replace user and password in the baseurl parameter to access WAPT Enterprise repository.

cat > /etc/yum.repos.d/wapt.repo <<EOF
[wapt]
name=WAPT Enterprise Server Repo
baseurl=https://user:password@srvwapt-pro.tranquil.it/entreprise/centos7/wapt-1.8/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
EOF

wget -q -O /tmp/tranquil_it.gpg "https://wapt.tranquil.it/centos7/RPM-GPG-KEY-TISWAPT-7"; rpm --import /tmp/tranquil_it.gpg
yum install epel-release
yum install cabextract
yum install postgresql96-server postgresql96-contrib tis-waptserver tis-waptsetup

  • Modify the repository address then launch the upgrade.

cat > /etc/yum.repos.d/wapt.repo <<EOF
[wapt]
name=WAPT Server Repo
baseurl=https://wapt.tranquil.it/centos7/wapt-1.8/

wget -q -O /tmp/tranquil_it.gpg "https://wapt.tranquil.it/centos7/RPM-GPG-KEY-TISWAPT-7"; rpm --import /tmp/tranquil_it.gpg
yum install postgresql96-server postgresql96-contrib tis-waptserver tis-waptsetup

Post-configuration

  • Launch the post-configuration step.

    Note

    • We advise that you launch the post-configuration steps after each server upgrade so that the server uses the latest configuration format.

    • It is not required to reset a password for the WAPT console during the post-configuration step.

    • If you have personalized the configuration of Nginx, do not answer Yes when the post-configuration asks you to configure Nginx.

    Attention

    • With WAPT 1.8 post-configuration, WAPT WUA packages will be moved from their current storage location to the waptwua root folder (/var/www/waptwua).

    • If repository replication has been set, all KB/CAB packages will be re-synchronized on remote repositories.

    /opt/wapt/waptserver/scripts/postconf.sh
    
  • Start the WAPT Server.

    systemctl start waptserver
    
  • Upgrade the WAPT console by following the same set of steps as installing the WAPT console.

  • Then create the WAPT agent.

    You will have to keep the same prefix for your packages and change nothing in relation to the private key/ public certificate pair!

    This will generate a waptupgrade package in the private repository.

    Note

    There are two methods for deploying the updates:

    • Using a GPO and waptdeploy.

    • Using a waptupgrade package and deploying it using WAPT.

  • Update the WAPT agents.

    The steps to follow to update WAPT agents are the same as the ones to first install the WAPT agents.

    Download and install the latest version of the WAPT agent by visiting http://wapt.mydomain.lan/wapt/waptagent.exe.

    As mentioned above, this procedure may be made automatic with a GPO or a waptupgrade package.

Windows

Attention

In the case you choose to use a GPO to upgrade the WAPT agent, the WAPT Server must be excluded from the OU where the GPO will apply.

Note

The WAPT Server may be installed on 64bit Windows 10 clients, and 64 bit Windows Server 2012/R2, 2016 and 2019 and 2022.

  • On the Windows machine hosting the WAPT Server, download the latest version of the installer from Tranquil IT’s website waptserversetup.exe and launch it as Local Administrator.

  • Install the update.

Note

The procedure to follow is the same as the one for installing a WAPT Server on Windows.

Attention

The prefix must NOT be changed and you must NOT generate a new key!

  • On the workstation that you use to build your packages, manually download WAPTSetup from.

  • Then create the WAPT agent.

    You will have to keep the same prefix for your packages and change nothing in relation to the private key/ public certificate pair!

    This will generate a waptupgrade package in the private repository.

    Note

    There are two methods for deploying the updates:

    • Using a GPO and waptdeploy.

    • Using a waptupgrade package and deploy it using WAPT.

  • Update the WAPT agents.

    The steps to follow to update WAPT agents are the same as the ones to first install the WAPT agents.

    Download and install the latest version of the WAPT agent by visiting http://wapt.mydomain.lan/wapt/waptagent.exe (the link is your own WAPT server).

    As mentioned above, this procedure may be made automatic with a GPO or a waptupgrade package.

Upgrading WAPT from versions older than 1.6

We recommend that you restart from scratch, that you provision an up-to-date WAPT Server environment alongside the old version, and that you use the old setup or a domain GPO to deploy the new WAPT agent.
