5 1 0:Applying Service Packs on Linux

From SEPsesam

Welcome to the latest SEP sesam documentation version 5.1.0 Apollon. For previous documentation version(s), check documentation archive.


SEP sesam provides special service pack executables for Linux systems that ease the installation of service packs and patches. A service pack is cumulative and contains all released fixes for the corresponding SEP sesam version.

Supported components

The service packs are available for the following components:

Downloading SEP sesam service pack

All service packs are available at the SEP Download Center.

To download the service pack for SEP sesam specific version for Linux, go to https://download.sep.de/servicepacks/<version>/<release_version_number>/linux/, for example, https://download.sep.de/servicepacks/4.4.3/

In the version-specific directory you will find service packs for all supported Linux distributions. The service packs are provided as executable files, named in the following manner:


The following example shows a SEP sesam service pack for Debian Jessie on x64:

root@system:~# wget "https://download.sep.de/servicepacks/4.4.3/"

Installing SEP sesam service pack

  • All commands have to be executed as root user or as an administrative user with the sudo command prefixed.
  • SEP sesam service pack installation will not check for running SEP sesam operations. Applying a patch while some SEP sesam operations are still running, for example backup or migration, will stop all running operations!

After downloading the relevant service pack for your operating system, you must make the downloaded service pack executable:

root@system: ~ # chmod +x sesam_patch_srv-b50baae_sles12_x86_64-

Then you can continue with the installation:

root@system: ~ # ./sesam_patch_srv-b50baae_sles12_x86_64- 
Verifying archive integrity... All good.
