Installing or upgrading a ZenPack
Before you begin, review the following requirements and considerations:
- Complete the steps in Preparing to install or upgrade a ZenPack.
- Do not use this procedure to install or upgrade the Zenoss Service Impact ZenPacks, ZenPacks.zenoss.ImpactServer and ZenPacks.zenoss.Impact. For more information, refer to the Zenoss Core Installation Guide.
- Log in to the Control Center master host as a user with Control Center CLI privileges.
Create a snapshot:
serviced service snapshot Zenoss.coreOn completion, the serviced command returns the ID of the new snapshot. If the installation of the ZenPack ends up failing, you can restore the snapshot you took in this step. For detailed instructions on restoring a snapshot, refer to the Control Center Reference Guide.
Change directory to the directory in which the ZenPack egg
file is located.
Install the ZenPack:
serviced service run zope zenpack-manager install ZenPack-File.eggDaemons that a ZenPack provides are packaged in Docker containers and installed as child services of the current instance of Zenoss Core.

serviced service restart Zenoss.core/Zenoss
