Apply a patch on SUSE

Use these instructions to patch your TeamForge 8.1 site with TeamForge 8.1 Patch 1.

Important: You must log in as a root user to apply this patch.
  1. Remove hot fixes, if any. Example:
    • cd /opt/collabnet/teamforge/add-ons/00common_hotfixes
    • ./install --uninstall
    • rpm -e 00common_hotfixes
  2. Uninstall TeamForge CLI-add on.
    • cd /opt/collabnet/teamforge/add-ons/teamforge_cli_server
    • ./install --uninstall
    • zypper remove teamforge_cli_server
  3. Stop TeamForge.
    • /etc/init.d/collabnet stop all
    Note: In case of distributed setup, run the above command in the respective servers.
  4. Skip this step if your site has internet access. If your site has no internet access, see Configure TeamForge patch installation repository for SUSE on sites without internet access before you proceed.
  5. Install the TeamForge patch.
    • zypper refresh
    1. To install TeamForge application packages, run the following command:
      • zypper install teamforge collabnet-binary
    2. To install GIT application packages, run the following command:
      • zypper install teamforge-git

      The zypper command, installs all the TeamForge patches available in the CollabNet repository for TeamForge 8.1.

      Note: When you upgrade, thesite-options.conf file is automatically backed up in to the /opt/collabnet/teamforge-installer/ directory.

      You can upgrade TeamForge based on the services enabled in the respective servers in case of distributed setup. For example, to install the TeamForge patches, run the command zypper install teamforge-scm in case of "SCM on a separate server".

  6. If you have LDAP set up for external authentication, you must set the “REQUIRE_USER_PASSWORD_CHANGE” site options token to false.
  7. Recreate the runtime environment.
    • cd /opt/collabnet/teamforge-installer/
    • ./ -r -I -V
  8. Since this patch includes Subversion binaries upgrade to 1.8.14, perform the following step.
    Note: In the case of a distributed setup, where Subversion runs on a separate server, skip this step and go directly to the last step to restart collabnet services.

    Upgrade and set permissions only if you are upgrading Subversion on the application server.

    1. Change to the runtime/scripts directory.
      • cd /opt/collabnet/teamforge/runtime/scripts
    2. Run the Subversion upgrade script.
      • ./
    3. Set the permissions for branding and publish directories.
      • eval `./`
  9. Start TeamForge.
    • /etc/init.d/collabnet start all
  10. Run the following script.
    • /opt/collabnet/teamforge/runtime/scripts/
