Upgrading

Overview

You can upgrade to a higher version of the OSE Gateway by running the installation package on the same machine.

Stopping Services

Prior to running the installation package, the user must manually stop all TT Gateway services.

Running the installation package automatically stops the following TT-related processes: TT Chron, SNMP, TT Guardian, TT Guardian Server, TT Guardian Control, TTMRD, and TTMD.

Note

Failure to stop all services causes the installer to log the following message in the installation logfile:

Error: Service <ServiceName> failed to stop. Please shutdown all TT applications and then re-launch this install.

If this message appears, you must manually stop the service(s) and restart the OSE Gateway setup.

Backing Up Audit Files

If upgrading intraday, you must backup and rename the Audit File which was created that day. Audit Files are version specific. Due to potential changes, TT strongly recommends that you backup and rename the day’s Audit File. This allows the upgraded TT Gateway to create a new version of the day’s Audit File and avoid any potential errors.

Warning

Audit Files that contain content from multiple TT Gateway versions cannot be converted with the Audit Convert tool.

Failure to begin a new file when upgrading the TT Gateway results in an ‘Unknown record type’ error message and potentially lost data.

TT strongly recommends that you backup and rename the day’s Audit File if upgrading intraday.

Upgrading to 7.17 and higher

Prior to upgrading to version 7.17 and higher, users must set the following Aconfig setting equal to 580:

Aconfig.Core.Server.Exchange-Specific.OSE.GAL.Support-Contract-Creation

This allows X_TRADER users to create and trade Tailor-Made Combinations (TMC).

Note

Users must restart the gateway for the updated value to take effect.

Failure to update this setting results in a blank Strategy Type drop-down menu in the Strategy Creation window.

Upgrade Procedure

You can use a OSE Gateway setup to upgrade an existing installation.

Note

TT recommends creating backup copies of all existing configuration files prior to upgrading your TT Gateway.

To upgrade your TT Gateway:

  1. Obtain a copy of the latest OSE Gateway setup executable file from either the TT Customer Portal or your TAM and place a copy of the file on the machine that currently hosts the OSE Gateway.
  2. Click on the Start menu, then select the Administrative Tools, then Services.
  3. In the list of services, locate and manually stop all TT Gateway related services including:
    • OSE Gateway Fill Server
    • OSE Gateway Price Server
    • OSE Gateway Order Server
    • OSE Gateway Key Server
    • OSE Gateway Order Routers, etc. (if present)
  4. If upgrading intraday, backup and rename the current session’s Audit File.
  5. Double-click the OSE Gateway setup executable file to launch the installer.

    A verification dialog box displays.

  6. Select Yes to continue with the upgrade.

    When the upgrade completes, the InstallShield Wizard Completed dialog box displays.

  7. Select Finish to exit the install and perform a reboot, if required.

Rebooting the Server

When rebooting the server, TT strongly recommends performing the reboot outside of actual trading hours (e.g., after the market close). In addition, you must all stop all TT services as shown in the procedure below.

To reboot your server:

  1. Once trading has ceased, access the server.
  2. Click on the Start menu, then select the Administrative Tools, then Services.
  3. In the list of services, locate and manually stop all TT Gateway related services including:
    • Fill Server
    • Price Server
    • Order Server
    • Key Server
    • Order Routers, etc. (if present)
    Warning

    Rebooting without stopping all TT services may corrupt datfiles and result in GTC orders being removed from the TT Order Book while still working at the exchange.

  4. Once all TT services have stopped, perform the reboot.
