    titleIf the tool lists any conflicts, click to see how to resolve them...

    A conflict is likely to happen  when a configuration file or artifact that you have customized has changed during the update. If a file/artifact has conflicts, the tool does not attempt to merge them. You need to manually apply the customizations on top of the updated files.


    Note that if there are conflicts identified by the tool, it is mandatory to either resolve them or revert the updates. If not, you cannot proceed.

    1. Go to the locations of the files that have conflicts and note the following files that are created by the tool:
      1. The file that has your customizations (e.g., test.jag).
      2. The file that was there in the previous update level, before updating customizations (e.g., test.jag.old).
      3. The file that is in the new update level, after updating (e.g., test.jag.updated).
    2. By looking at the created files (.old and .updated), resolve the conflicts and save the resolved file with the  .final extension (e.g., 
    3. Run the tool again with the '--continue' flag for the tool to merge the changes in the .final file with the file that created the conflict.

      Code Block
      ./update_linux --continue (On Linux)
      ./update_windows --continue (On Windows)
      ./update_darwin --continue (On OS X)
    4. Go back to the location of the conflicting file and note that the tool has merged the  .final  file with the file that had your custom configurations and deleted all the other temporary files (i.e., .old.updated, and .final).

  5. Restart the server.

  6. If you want to revert the updates and restore the previous state, run the following command:

    Code Block
    ./update_linux --revert (On Linux)
    ./update_darwin --revert (On OS X)
    Currently not supported on Windows due to file restrictions.
