This article outlines the dependency changes needed for the latest NetX release. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact email@example.com before starting an upgrade.
Which version of NetX are you upgrading from?
Starting in NetX 10.7.0, NetX requires Redis, an in-memory datastore. For instructions on how to install Redis and configure NetX to utilize it, see Installing Redis.Java options
Please remove the following Java options before starting NetX, if present:
NetX 10 requires OpenJDK JDK 17. If you are running on Linux, make sure to update your JAVA_HOME environmental variable in your /opt/netx/bin/setenv.sh to reflect the new java location. On Windows, the installer may automatically locate the new java version. See JDK - Java Development Kitfor JDK installation instructions.Solr 8
In this release, NetX now supports Solr 8. An automatic reindex will not be kicked off after the NetX 10 upgrade, so if you run into issues with search or asset display after the upgrade you will need to start a manual reindex.
Follow the instructions below to upgrade NetX and Solr:
NetX 10 includes a new version of Apache Tomcat application server. Tomcat 9 is automatically bundled with the NetX upgrade pack and does not require manual intervention to install.
Windows admins: Tomcat 9 now defaults the NetX service account to Local Service instead of Local System. For the NetX service to start successfully, you need to change the Log On account to Local System or grant the Local Service (or your custom service account) Full Control permission to the NetX application directory after the upgrade. For more details, see Upgrading NetX on Windows.
Please submit a ticket to NetX support to request further instructions before attempting this upgrade.
