Upgrade the Splunk Add-on for NetApp Data ONTAP from v3.0.1 to v3.0.2

Follow these steps when upgrading Splunk Add-on for NetApp Data ONTAP from v3.0.1 to 3.0.2.

Before you begin

These upgrade steps only apply to users upgrading from v3.0.1 to v3.0.2 of the Splunk Add-on for NetApp Data ONTAP. If you are using version previous to v3.0.1 (v2.1.91 or v3.0.0), follow the steps to upgrade to 3.0.1 to upgrade to v3.0.1 and then you can upgrade to v3.0.2 from v3.0.1 by following these steps.

Step 1: Upgrade the scheduler

Make sure the splunk_ontap_admin role has the admin_all_objects capability before upgrading the scheduler.

  1. Go to the ONTAP Collection Configuration page of the Splunk Add-on for NetApp Data ONTAP and click Stop Scheduler.
  2. Stop Splunk on the scheduler instance.
  3. Download the Splunk Add-on for NetApp Data ONTAP v3.0.2 from Splunkbase and extract its contents to the $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps directory. This overwrites the Splunk_TA_ontap and SA-Hydra packages.

Step 2: Upgrade the data collection node

  1. Stop Splunk on the data collection node machine.
  2. Download the Splunk Add-on for NetApp Data ONTAP v3.0.2 from Splunkbase and extract its contents to the $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps directory. This overwrites the previously installed add-on packages.

Step 3: Upgrade the indexer

Enable maintenance mode on the cluster master node.

  1. Download the Splunk Add-on for NetApp Data ONTAP Indexes v3.0.2 from Splunkbase and extract the SA-ONTAPIndex package to the /apps folder for your deployment.
    1. For a non-indexer cluster deployment, extract to $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps.
    2. For the indexer-clustering deployments, extract to $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/master-apps.
  2. For indexer-clustering deployments, push the configuration bundle from the cluster master node.
  3. Disable maintenance mode on the cluster master node.

Step 4: Upgrade the search head

  1. Stop Splunk on the machine.
  2. Download the Splunk Add-on for NetApp Data ONTAP Extractions v3.0.2 from Splunkbase and extract the TA-ONTAP-FieldExtractions package to the /apps directory for your deployment.
    1. For non-search head cluster deployments, extract to $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps.
    2. For search head clustering deployments, extract to $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/shcluster/apps/.
  3. If you aren't using knowledge objects explicitly from the SA-VMNetAppUtils directory, remove the SA-VMNetAppUtils directory from the apps folder as the add-on doesn't use any KOs from this package. Keep the package as is, if you are using any of the knowledge objects from this package.
  4. The Hydra troubleshooting dashboards (Hydra Framework Status and Hydra Scheduler Status) have been added to the TA-ONTAP-FieldExtractions package. So, you can remove the SA-Hydra directory from the Search head, if present.
  5. For search head clustering deployments, push the app bundle from the deployer. The deployer restarts all the search head cluster members after the upgrade is applied. If the deployer doesn't restart the search head cluster members, perform a rolling restart.

Step 5: Start Splunk and the data collection node

  1. Start Splunk on the data collection node machine.
  2. Start Splunk on the scheduler machine.
  3. Navigate to the Collection Configuration page of the Splunk Add-on for NetApp Data ONTAP on the scheduler tier.
  4. Click Start Scheduler to start data collection.
