Upgrading tentacles to 2.0

Hi, I’ve successfully updated the server to 2.0 but upgrading the tentacles with the script found on this page http://docs.octopusdeploy.com/display/OD/Upgrading+from+Octopus+1.6 didn’t work, although I was going from 1.5. Anyway I’ve managed to get the tentacles and server communicating again but I wanted to check that the way I’ve done it won’t cause any issues. I don’t think it will but just for peace of mind, this is what I did.

  1. Stopped old tentacle and set the “start up type” to manual
  2. Installed tentacle v2.0 on machine
  3. Stopped the tentacle running
  4. ran “tentacle.exe import-certificate --instance “Tentacle” --from-registry --console” as an administrator from a command prompt (not sure what --instance “Tentacle” means?)
  5. Start tentacle service

As I say all seems to be fine but I wanted to be sure I’d not caused myself any issues.


That sounds correct, thanks for the heads up.
