I am happy to announce the release of version 1.5 of the CDT – Central Deployment Tool.
While previous versions of CDT introduced automatic upgrades or HF installations on multiple gateways and clusters, the new version introduces new ways to automate your deployments:
- Basic Flow – same as previous versions, and with the same syntax – you can use the CDT to upgrade or install hotfixes on multiple gateways. Clusters upgrades are performed automatically, and the management objects are upgraded automatically.
- Advanced Flow – you can now prepare a complete deployment plan that will be executed on all gateways and clusters by the CDT. The deployment plan is a set of actions such as: install a package, uninstall a package, download package from cloud, push/pull files, take snapshot, run script, etc. As with the basic flow, CDT automatically controls cluster upgrades, and upgrades the management objects as well.
- RMA – CDT now allows you to automate your RMA process. You can use the CDT to collect version and configuration information from all of your gateways, and use the CDT to automatically restore the GW on a new appliance after RMA. All you need to do is set the IP on the new appliance, and run CDT to restore the gateway.
