Goal

In this document we will learn the different ways to determine the version and the update of the Denodo Platform and Solution Manager installed on a Windows or Linux environment.

Windows Installation

For a Windows installation or, in general, on an installation with a desktop environment, follow these steps:

Denodo Platform:

  1. Open Denodo Platform Control Center
  1. Click on the Help section. This will display the current version of Denodo

  1. In order to view the latest update installed and all the updates installed in the Denodo Platform click on the Update section.

        

        

In the Update dialog, the bottom most one is the latest installed update.

Solution Manager (only Denodo 7.0 and later versions):

  1. Open Denodo Solution Manager
  1. Click on the Help section. This will display the current version of Solution Manager.

  1. In order to view the latest update installed and all the updates installed in the Denodo Solution Manager click on the Update section.

In the Update dialog, the bottom most one is the latest installed update.

  1. Another way of checking the version will be going to the following path:

        Denodo Platform:

<DENODO_HOME>/install.xml

This file contains the XML tag <version> listing the current version of the Denodo Platform installed in the system.

<version displayName = “8.0” major = “8” minor = “0”/>

Solution Manager (Denodo 7.0 and later versions):

<DENODO_SOLUTION_MANAGER_HOME>/install.xml

This file contains the XML tag <version> listing the current version of the Denodo Solution Manager installed in the system.

<version displayName = “8.0” major = “8” minor = “0”/>

        

  1. To identify the update installed go to the following path:

Denodo Platform:

<DENODO_HOME>/patches

In this folder, an XML file is generated for each update installed in the Denodo Platform. The filename follows the format denodo-update-<yyyyMMddxx>”. The date part of the name indicates the update date.

Solution Manager (Denodo 7.0 and later versions):

<DENODO_SOLUTION_MANAGER_HOME>/patches

In this folder, an XML file is generated for each update installed in the Solution Manager. The filename follows the format denodo-update-<yyyyMMddxx>”. The date part of the name indicates the update date.

Linux Installation

If the Linux installation has a desktop environment the Denodo Platform Control Center can be used to identify the version and update of the Denodo Platform:

Denodo Platform:

  1. Open a terminal in your Linux system.
  2. Go to the Denodo installation bin folder:

                      cd <DENODO_HOME>/bin

  1. Run the script denodo_platform.sh.
  2. Once the Denodo Platform Control Center opens the same steps as in a Windows installation to find the version and the latest update installed can be followed.

Solution Manager (Denodo 7.0 and later versions):

  1. Open a terminal in your Linux system.
  2. Go to the Denodo Solution Manager installation bin folder:

cd <DENODO_SOLUTION_MANAGER_HOME>/bin

  1. Run the script denodo_platform.sh
  2. Once the Denodo Solution Manager opens follow the same steps as in a Windows installation to find the version and the latest update installed.

 

        

If the Linux installation does not have a graphical interface:

Denodo Platform:

  1. Go to the <DENODO_HOME>  folder.
  2. Read the file named “install.xml” using the following command:

                      cat install.xml

  1. The file will contain a line similar to this one with the version name:

                       <version displayName = “8.0” major = “8” minor = “0”/>

  1. Next to find what update is installed in the Denodo Platform of your system go to the following path:

                       cd <DENODO_HOME>/patches

  1. Enter the command “ls” to display the list of contents. This folder contains an XML file for each update installed in the Denodo Platform
  2. The file names follow the format  denodo-update-<yyyyMMddxx>”. The date at the end of the file name indicated the date of the updates installed. The most recent date will be the latest update installed.

Solution Manager (Denodo 7.0 and later versions):

  1. Go to the <DENODO_SOLUTION_MANAGER_HOME>  folder.
  2. Read the file named “install.xml” using the following command:

                      cat install.xml

  1. The file will contain a line similar to this one with the version name:

                       <version displayName = “8.0” major = “8” minor = “0”/>

  1. Next to find what update is installed in the Solution Manager go to the following path:

                       cd <DENODO_SOLUTION_MANAGER_HOME>/patches

  1. Enter the command “ls” to display the list of contents. This folder contains an XML file for each update installed in the Denodo Platform
  2. The file names follow the format  denodo-update-<yyyyMMddxx>”. The date at the end of the file name indicated the date of the updates installed. The most recent date will be the latest update installed.
