Server software upgrade on Ubuntu

When you want to use the latest version of the server software on Ubuntu, you must upgrade HCL OneTest Server from the previous version of the software.

Before you upgrade the server software, you must ensure that you have completed the following tasks:

  • Installed Helm V3.5.2. For more information, refer to the Helm documentation.

  • Informed users that HCL OneTest Server is offline temporarily during the upgrade process.

  • Completed all test executions that are running on the existing HCL OneTest Server V10.1.0 or later.

  • Stopped all stub executions that are running on the existing HCL OneTest Server V10.1.0 or later.

  • Canceled any scheduled test runs that have a future date or time.

In upgrade (by new install) method, depending on the existing version of the software, you can upgrade the server software by using any of the following options.

To upgrade HCL OneTest Server V10.1.0 or later to latest version, you must perform these tasks in sequence as listed in the following table:
