PeerIQ is built on a container-based software stack, deployed as a virtual appliance. Updating the PeerIQ software stack involves updating the numerous containers within the virtual appliance.
To make it easier to upgrade containers, we’ve provided a convenient update mechanism that can be accessed via SSH or the virtual appliance’s console. This mechanism is based on the same wizard that we display when you first log into the virtual appliance via SSH or the console.
Open the virtual appliance’s built-in menu system.
If you are logging into the appliance via SSH or the console for the first time, the menu will automatically load after log in.
If you have previously logged in and have changed the default user password, then run the following command after logging in via SSH or the console.CODE
