If you have any questions regarding compatibility or updating a specific add-on, contact CollabNet Support.
  1. Stop TeamForge.
    teamforge stop
    
  2. Skip this step if your site has internet access. This step is to configure TeamForge 18.3 Update 1 installation repository on sites without Internet access.

    a. Contact the CollabNet Support to get the auxiliary installer package for TeamForge 18.3 Update 1 disconnected installation and save it in /tmp.

    • Red Hat Enterprise Linux/CentOS 7.5 64 bit RPM package: CTF-Disconnected-media-18.3.621-1247.rhel7.x86_64.rpm

    b. Back up the old repo file.

    c. Unpack the 18.3 Update 1 disconnected installation package.

       rpm -Uvh <package-name>
    

    d. Verify your yum configuration files.

       yum list httpd
       yum list apr
    
  3. Configure your TeamForge installation repository. This step is to configure TeamForge 18.3 Update 1 installation repository on sites with Internet access.
