DG - Software Update

E-MetroTel provides software updates for UCx products using an on-line repository. You can use this on-line repository to obtain patches and/or new software releases.

Update Software from Web-based Configuration Utility

To update installed software packages from online repositories, perform the following steps:

  1. Open the UCx Web-based Configuration Utility
  2. From the System tab, select Updates
  3. Press the Check For Updates button to query software repositories for updated packages. The hour-glass icon and the message Checking repositories - please wait... is displayed while this query is in progress.
  4. If no updated packages are found, a popup message is presented indicating that your system is up-to-date.  If updates are available, a list of packages is displayed and the button Update Software is enabled.
  5. Press Update Software to update the software packages. The hour-glass icon and the message Updating packages - please wait... is displayed while installation of updated packages is in progress. Wait until the installation process is finished.
  6. Upon completion of the software update the message Update successfully completed appears.

Update Software using SSH Client

As an alternative to the update of software packages using the Web-based Configuration Utility, you can use an SSH client software (for example PuTTY) to connect to your UCx Digital Gateway system and update software packages from the command line.

To update your UCx Digital Gateway system with software packages from the on-line repository using an SSH client (e.g., PuTTY), perform the following steps:

  1. Start your SSH client software.
  2. Enter the IP address or host name of your UCx Digital Gateway system (use the default SSH port 22 and the SSH protocol version 2).
  3. At the login as prompt, use the user ID admin.
  4. Use the password you configured for the Web-based Configuration Utility's admin account.
  5. At the presented command prompt, use the command sudo yum update to initiate the update of installed software packages.
  6. Confirm the update operation when prompted by the package installer.
  7. Once the operation is finished, close the SSH session using the command exit.
