Super Easy Upgrade Steps!

Post by JimKnicely » Wed Feb 22, 2012 9:24 pm

Here are the simple steps needed to upgrade to Vertica 5.1:
  • 1. Download the desired RPM file from Vertica's web site
    2. Shutdown the current database using admintools
    3. Shutdown the spread process (kill the process if needed) on each of your nodes
    4. Install the RPM
    • Example:

      Code: Select all

      rpm -Uvh vertica-5.1.1-0.x86_64.RHEL5.rpm
    5. Run the installer across all nodes:
    • Example:

      Code: Select all

      /opt/vertica/sbin/install_vertica -s 10.255.20.126,10.255.20.127,100.255.20.128 -r vertica-5.1.1-0.x86_64.RHEL5.rpm -u dbadmin
    6. Restart the database using admintools
If you are upgrading a production database, MAKE SURE YOU TAKE A BACKUP BEFORE YOU UPGRADE!
