Updated Memcached Component

last updated on July 22, 2022

The Enterprise File Fabric relies on a internal component called Memcached.

As of July 21, 2022, this component has been upgraded.

Customers who update their Enterprise File Fabric's via yum may pull in this updated component unintentionally.

Customers wishing to install the updated component can do so by connecting to their File Fabric with ssh, becoming root and running:

yum install sme-containers-memcached

If you have an HA system, repeat the installation on each node.

Customers who have a single node installation of the File Fabric should not need to make any changes to their configuration after the new component has been installed.

Determining Whether You Have The Updated Component

Run the following commands as root:

rpm -qa | grep sme-containers-memcached && echo "New Memcached installed"

If this prints “New Memcached installed” then you are running the new version.

Updating Memcached For HA Installations

Customers who run High Availability deployments consisting of 2 or more nodes will have to make a configuration change.

As root, run the following commands:

cd /var/www/smestorage/containers/memcached/
sed -i 's/' .env
docker-compose down
docker-compose up -d
