Ace:Audit Manager Upgrading
There are three steps to upgrading the audit manager, these are upgrading the application code, upgrading the underlying database, and finally updating any configuration files if necessary. The procedure for upgrading is listed below
These instructions are current for version 1.3. Links to all previous versions of ace are available on the software page
- 1. Note the version you are currently running
- Point your web browser at your ACE AM installation and look for the version at the bottom. If should look something like 1.2.2, or 1.3..
- 2. Stop the Audit Manager/Tomcat
- Run TOMCAT/bin/shutdown.sh to stop tomcat
[toaster@loach ~/aceam]$ apache-tomcat-6.0.18/bin/shutdown.sh Using CATALINA_BASE: /fs/narahomes/toaster/aceam/apache-tomcat-6.0.18 Using CATALINA_HOME: /fs/narahomes/toaster/aceam/apache-tomcat-6.0.18 Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /fs/narahomes/toaster/aceam/apache-tomcat-6.0.18/temp Using JRE_HOME: /opt/jdk1.6.0
- 3. Apply database patches
- Connect to your mysql database and apply any listed patches in order. You will need to apply all patches starting with your current version (see step 1) *in order*. See the table at the bottom of this page for a list of what patches you need.
- To apply the patchec, connect to your database and issue the command 'source patchfile.sql' for each patch file you need to run.
- Here's an example of what you will see. Depending on which patches you are applying, your screen will look different.
[user@loach ~]$ mysql aceam -u aceam -p Enter password: Reading table information for completion of table and column names You can turn off this feature to get a quicker startup with -A Welcome to the MySQL monitor. Commands end with ; or \g. Your MySQL connection id is 88 Server version: 5.0.45 Source distribution Type 'help;' or '\h' for help.

Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec) mysql>
- 4. Upgrade the ACE AM code
- Remove the existing ACE installation files and directories located at TOMCAT/webapps/ace-am and TOMCAT/webapps/ace-am.war.
[toaster@loach ~/aceam]$ rm -rf apache-tomcat-6.0.18/webapps/ace-am* [toaster@loach ~/aceam]$ rm -rf apache-tomcat-6.0.18/work/Catalina/localhost/ace-am/
- Place a copy of the latest ace-am.war file in TOMCAT/webapps/
[toaster@loach ~/aceam]$ cp /tmp/ace-am.war apache-tomcat-6.0.18/webapps/
- The latest version can be downloaded here
- 5. Update any configuration settings. (Versions prior to 1.3)
- In your TOMCAT/conf/Catalina/localhost/ace-am.xml file, you may need to add some settings. This is only needed if you are upgrading from 1.2.2 or earlier.
- Check the following line in your configuration file to ensure the database connection uses UTF-8.
<Resource auth="Container" driverClassName="com.mysql.jdbc.Driver" maxActive="20" maxIdle="10" maxWait="-1" name="jdbc/aceamdb" password="ace" username="aceam" url="jdbc:mysql://localhost/aceam?characterEncoding=UTF-8" testOnBorrow="true" type="javax.sql.DataSource" validationQuery="SELECT 1"/>
- If your url does not contain the character encoding, you will need to add it if you want to use UTF-8 characters.
- There is a sample configuration file available here
- 6. Restart ACE.
- Run TOMCAT/bin/startup.sh to restart tomcat
[toaster@loach ~/aceam]$ apache-tomcat-6.0.18/bin/startup.sh Using CATALINA_BASE: /fs/narahomes/toaster/aceam/apache-tomcat-6.0.18 Using CATALINA_HOME: /fs/narahomes/toaster/aceam/apache-tomcat-6.0.18 Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /fs/narahomes/toaster/aceam/apache-tomcat-6.0.18/temp Using JRE_HOME: /opt/jdk1.6.0_07
