Upgrade PVS on Linux

Before You Begin

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

Additionally, if you have used a PVS RPM to install PVS previously, an upgrade retains configuration settings. You must transfer the PVS 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 PVS with the following command:

    # service pvs stop

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

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

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

    1:pvs ########################################### [100%]

    [*] PVS installation completed.

    #

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

    # service pvs start

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

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