On-premise DataGateway monthly upgrade

Hi

Is there any way to automate On-premises Data Gateways upgrade? so I can do it monthly with the latest version.

 

I do have one doc using PowerShell (PowerShell Cmdlets for On-premises data gateway management | Microsoft Docs) although this install the Gateway from scratch instead of update the existing installation.

 

Any idea?

Hi, @Anonymous 

 

I'm afraid currently 'update gateway automatically' feature is not currently supported.

Hi @Anonymous,

I just stumbled across your post while researching how to do exactly what you're asking about, and I couldn't find any instructions about it anywhere either. So I decided to just try and see what happens if I run
Install-DataGateway -AcceptConditions
on an existing gateway. Lo and behold, it upgraded the existing gateway to the latest version with no fuss. Microsoft really should update the documentation to say this cmdlet can be used to install OR upgrade.

Hope this helps!

On this. I logged a ticket with MS and using this cmdlet "Install-DataGateway -AcceptConditions" is supported for updating the gateway. The reason is just symantics. In MS eyes each new GW version is a fresh install therefore there is never a need to 'update' a gateway since each new release (e.g. July , August etc.) is a new install.
