Upgrade NNM on Linux

Before You Begin

These steps assume you have backed up your custom SSL certificates. They also assume that you are running all commands with root privileges.

Additionally, if you have used a NNM RPM to install NNM previously, an upgrade retains configuration settings. You must transfer the NNM RPM package to the system on which it is being installed. Confirm the integrity of the installation package by comparing the download MD5 checksum with the one listed in the product release notes.

Steps

  1. Stop NNM with the following command:

    # service nnm stop

  2. Install the NNM .rpm file downloaded from the Tenable Support Portal with the following command. Note that the specific filename varies, depending on your version:

    # rpm -Uvh NNM-5.x.x-esx.x86_64.rpm

    Preparing... ########################################### [100%]

    1:NNM ########################################### [100%]

    [*] NNM installation completed.

    #

  3. Once the upgrade is complete, start NNM with the following command:

    # service nnm start

  4. Navigate to https://<ip address or hostname>:8835, which displays the NNM web frontend to log in.

    Tip: Ensure that organizational firewall rules permit access to port 8835 on the NNM server.
