The Crypto Application Server (CAS) should be updated regularly. Updating CAS requires it to be shut down, so choose an appropriate time.
The current server version can be found here:
GENERAL BYTES now requires KYC registration for every license.
Operators with accounts in arrears will need to bring their account current to upgrade.
You must add the GB APT Repository to update, see: https://generalbytes.atlassian.net/l/cp/20wDrKSM
Like CAS, Ubuntu is updated frequently. Keep your server's software up to date to stay head of the curve and maintain your server’s security.
CAS will expect your server to work properly & use current software, so begin by updating your Ubuntu server:
sudo apt update && sudo apt -y dist-upgrade
When logging in via SSH, Ubuntu may notify you that a restart is required:
This is the perfect to time to comply. Restart your system:
sudo reboot now
Your SSH connection will be terminated for about a couple minutes while the server reboots. Be patient, then reconnect to your server. The message should now be gone.
WISDOM: Please avoid installing CAS updates when Support is unavailable.
If Support is necessary, the best results come on Tuesdays or Wednesdays.
We'll refer to the current version as “BUILDNUM” below.
Where necessary, further explanation of features & bug fixes can be found here:
sudo /batm/batm-manage stop all
If a service won’t shut down at this point (for any reason), wait a few minutes & reboot your server.
sudo /batm/batm-manage server-upgrade BUILDNUM
Enter “Y” to confirm your agreement to the current licensing and terms (when asked).
Note any errors reported during the upgrade!
Please share screenshots in a Support Ticket if something goes awry.
If you are unable to access the private GB repository, see:
Assuming everything updated as planned, start CAS again.
sudo /batm/batm-manage start all
Login to CAS to verify that it's working and reporting the proper version.
