    CA Spectrum 10.3.1 is not a full product install.

    You will have to first install CA Spectrum 10.3.0 and then install 10.3.1.

    Make sure the Spectrum services are stopped and the launch the ***.txe file to install it.

    Example: ./***.txe

    Hi Silvio

    Today, my installed version of Spectrum is 10.3.0. So I can install the new 10.3.1. I am in a fault tolerant configuration. Do I have to upgrade first the primary server then the secondary server?
    Thanks for your help.

    Hi Erwan,

     Yes, please upgrade the primary first, and then the secondary.

    Cheers

    Hi Erwan,

     

    the txe file extension is a self extracting archive for Linux, basically you just need to set the permissions on the file and then run it, it will self extract and install.  Most likely this is CA proprietary as I haven´t seen txe files anywhere else.

     

    Best regards,
