BMC TrueSight Pulse Meter - Upgrading

NOTE On October 11, 2016, BMC released Meter Version 4.4.1 which changed the name of the meter from boundary-meter to truesight-meter. This article reflects the change. If you are using a meter version prior to 4.4.1, then you will need to reference boundary-meter instead of truesight-meter in the operations discussed in this article.

Upgrading the Meter

The meter can be updated to the latest version by running the appropriate command(s):

On CentOS, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Amazon Linux, and Oracle Linux

sudo yum update truesight-meter

On Ubuntu and Debian

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install truesight-meter

On SmartOS

sudo pkg_add -u -f -v ./<meter package name>
sudo svcadm disable truesight/meter
sudo svcadm enable truesight/meter

Note: Newer version of SmartOS may fail to install or upgrade the meter. The current workaround is to edit the /opt/local/etc/pkg_install.conf and change the line for VERIFIED_INSTALLATION to the following:


Once the user makes this change, they can run and the system will offer a 'y/n' prompt asking the user if it's OK to install the meter package. Once installed, they can change their VERIFIED_INSTALLATION line in pkg_install.conf back.

On Windows

Download the latest MSI for your architecture and install it normally.
