            Release notes for the latest v2.5.x CPM release

            In order to upgrade to v2.5.x from v2.4.x and earlier, please use one of the following methods:


            1) AMI upgrade method. Use the upgrade instructions in chapter 1.3.5 "Upgrading the CPM Server Instance" at https://n2ws.com/support/documentation/introduction-to-cpm#13 

            -or-


            2) Patch upgrade method. Please read the following:
            - Notice! this patch may only be used to upgrade from CPM v2.3.0c/d/e or v2.4.0 to v2.5.0
            1. If running an older version of CPM, please use upgrade method 1) above.
            2. If patch is installed to an incorrect version, the CPM instance will stop functioning (error 500) and must be rebuilt using method 1) above.

            - Using this patch requires outbound internet connectivity from the CPM Server.
            • If using a proxy or limiting internet connectivity, please use the AMI upgrade method in 1) shown above.
            • Without internet connectivity patch upgrade may appear successful, however CPM Server may respond slowly and malfunction.
            • Without internet connectivity OS and applications will not be updated, leaving the system open to vulnerabilities.
            • If you have patched without internet connectivity by accident, please rerun the upgrade using the AMI upgrade method in 1) shown above.

            - No backups, DR or S3 copies should be running or scheduled to run while installing the patch
            • Please take steps such as disabling schedules to ensure policies will not try to run until the upgrade is complete.

            - Please wait 10 minutes after installing then reboot the CPM Instance from the AWS console.
            • Failure to do so will prevent the changes on OS level from being being implemented, functionality may be compromised.

            - Patch can be applied by using the "CPM patches" link at the bottom of the GUI:


            - Note it may take a few minutes for the CPM GUI to become responsive after installation.



            For both upgrade methods, please give attention to these details:
            1. Due to the new functionality, you may need to update your permission policies. Please see the JSON templates attached to this KB: https://support.n2ws.com/portal/kb/articles/what-are-the-required-minimal-aws-permissions-roles-for-cpm-operation

            2. it is now a requirement to attach an IAM role to the CPM server instance.

            3. After the latest version is installed, please manually upgrade VSS Agents by downloading the thin backup agent from the upgraded CPM server and reinstalling within the instance OS.
