I was trying to upgrade SSMSE 6.0 to 6.0.1. I followed the upgrade guide as follows:
scp ssms-6.-.1-patch.sh admin@<ip-address>:~
b. ssh to your satellite 6.0.0 with admin and password you created during Kickstart.
c. Run the following command to upgrade:
NOTE: If you receive and error “command not found”, it is likely becase the script does not have linux ‘execute’ permissions. To fix this, you can follow one of the following procedures
sudo bash ./ssms-6.0.1-patch.sh
chmod 777 ./ssms-6.0.1-patch.sh
Then reissue the upgrade command in step ‘c’
d. The system provides a message that it’s upgrading.
3. After approximately 5-15 minutes, it notifies the user and reboots itself as a 6.0.1 system.
4. You can register a satellite Account and synchronize it.
But I cannot upload the patch. I used WinSCP and selected SCP and then try to connect to satellite server. I entered the admin username and password. but it got denied.
why? what is the reason.
I don't know if it will help at all, but I wasn't able to upload the patch using our usual software (i.e., SolarWinds SFTP/SCP Server). The Satellite and program couldn't agree on a key exchange method. I had to use another program we have, Tectia - Secure File Transfer.
Worked for me using WinSCP.
Are you sure you use the right credentials?
Console admin is a different one than the WebUI admin. The console admin password is configured during installation of the satellite.
I haven't tried it but since it's a CentOS I'd try one of the many how-to's on how to recover lost passwords on this operating system.
This one seems to thoroughly explain it, but as I said, I didn't try it myself:
