With each upgrade, we bring new capabilities and improvements to your RemotiveBroker.
To enjoy the latest broker experience, we recommend that you regularly update it.
This guide focuses on how to upgrade the broker and the broker app running on RemotiveBox. The process is similar for other hardware devices. If you need help, we are happy to help. If you use the Docker images in a CI pipeline or similar, perform an upgrade as with any other Docker image.
- First, make sure your device is plugged into the power source. Give it a few seconds to boot up.
- Connect your device to the internet with a LAN cable.
- Ensure the box is configured with a valid license.
Please note that connecting your computer to the device's Wi-Fi hotspot isn't enough for the purposes of performing an upgrade because, while you'll be able to interact with the device, the device itself won't have access to the internet.
1. Open RemotiveBrokerApp
We will use RemotiveBrokerApp to initiate an upgrade.
The easiest way to open the app is to use RemotiveCLI.
remotive broker discover command to find brokers connected to your network.
➜ ~ remotive broker discover
Looking for RemotiveBrokers on your network, press Ctrl-C to exit...
[ RemotiveBroker GRPC on remotive-broker-office-1._remotivebroker._tcp.local. ]
If your broker doesn't appear on the list, ensure that it is connected to your network with a LAN cable and that your computer is also connected to the same network (either wirelessly or with a cable).
Open the app URL
http://192.168.200.220:8080 in a web browser.
2. Initiate the Upgrade
To initiate the upgrade, navigate to the About page.
When an upgrade is available, the "Upgrade" button will appear. Click on it to show the upgrade dialog.
If you wish to upgrade to the latest versions of the broker and the app, leave the two input fields empty and continue with a click on "Upgrade."
The upgrade is now in progress. Close the popup and wait for a few minutes.
In a few seconds, a notification will appear that will prompt you to wait.
After a few minutes, the upgrade is complete.
Congratulations! It's time to enjoy the latest RemotiveBroker experience. 🎉
