Installing Patches

Post by Victorgm » Fri Jul 17, 2015 3:05 pm

I would like to apply the appropriate patches to my cluster:

3-nodes on Amazon standard AMI

select version() ;
Vertica Analytic Database v7.1.1-0

I see that several patches are listed on Vertica's customer ftp site.
Is there a roll-up patch, or must all of them be applied?
I assume they must be applied in sequence (1.1, 1,2 1.3...) - please confirm.

I see
RHEL5.rpm
SUSE.rpm
AMD64.deb

How can I determine which flavor is right for my cluster?

Many thanks for your help!

Hi!

Version XXX.YYY.ZZZ means:

Code: Select all

XXX - release version
YYY - major fix/patch
ZZZ - minor fix/patch
It is always advised & better to follow recommended upgrade path which is

Code: Select all

6.0.zzz >>> 6.1.zzz >>> 6.2.zzz >>> 6.3.zzz >>> ... >>> 7.0.zzz >>> 7.1.zzz >>> 7.2.zzz
i.e. upgrade version of major fix to the most recent (6.0 > 6.1 > 6.2 > ...) and after it the release itself (6.MAX > 7.0 > 7.1 > 7.2 > ...)

PS
major fix YYY includes all minor fixes for major fix YYY-1

You need to figure out what Linux distro/version you are running:

... to figure out Linux flavour type in terminal:

Code: Select all

python -c "import platform; print ' '.join(platform.dist())"
Snippet determines the name of the Linux OS distribution name.

Supported distributions:
  • SuSE
  • debian
  • fedora
  • redhat
  • centos
  • mandrake
  • mandriva
  • rocks
  • slackware
  • yellowdog
  • gentoo
  • UnitedLinux
  • turbolinux
  • Ubuntu
Example:

Code: Select all

daniel@synapse:~$ python -c "import platform; print ' '.join(platform.dist())"
Ubuntu 14.04 trusty
