Re: How to upgrade my bosh?

Amit Kumar Gupta

Hi Alex,

That's not correct. bosh-init is an executable binary, written in golang,
used to deploy single-VM deployments of anything you can colocate onto one
VM. Using it to deploy BOSH itself is the most common use case, so you
could call that Micro BOSH. *bosh-init* is different from *BOSH-Lite*.
BOSH-Lite is a project for producing a vagrant VM running the BOSH director
along with garden, which creates containers which simulates VMs (the BOSH
director in the BOSH-Lite vagrant box talks to garden via the warden-cpi to
create "VMs", which in this care are just garden containers).


If you are using BOSH-Lite, I believe there is no upgrade path, as it is
only meant for development purposes. From the "bosh-lite" directory, you
will need to:

vagrant box update
vagrant destroy
vagrant up

See You
will then need to re-provision everything, i.e. reupload the stemcell,
release, and do a "bosh deploy" with your cf manifest.

Sorry, I guess some misunderstanding took place.

Approximately the same number you’ll get if you run `gem list bosh_cli`
because bosh-director has the same version numbering as a bosh_cli, as far
they are parts of the same project of cloudfoundry/bosh repo. So I thought
@daxiezhi probably wants to update CLI through gem.

As far as I know bosh-lite is a go utility to deploy MicroBOSH. It aims to
replace BOSH CLI plugin “micro", the outdated way to deploy MicrBOSH. Do
you mean that at this moment MicroBOSH deployed with bosh-lite should be
called BOSH-Lite?

For me, `bosh -t lite status` shows "Version 1.3056.0 (00000000)". I
believe that's the version of the bosh-director gem:

Hi, all.

Amit, I guess it is not bosh-lite version, because bosh-lite versions are
over 9000 [1].

daxiezhi, if you mean by “local bosh” your version of bosh_cli gem, then
everything you need to do is to run: “gem update bosh_cli” (possibly with

If you mean you need to update BOSH director, then everything depend on
the you deployed the BOSH. In this case could you tell what commands did
you used to deploy BOSH?


Thank you,

When you say "local bosh", do you mean BOSH-Lite?

My local bosh version is 1.2124.0. From cf v208, there is a change in
