13 Database Management : 13.5 Updating the Server Version on the EDB Ark Cluster

When an update becomes available for a package installed on your cluster, the Ark console will display an alert symbol in the UP column of the Details panel for the cluster, and in the UP column of the DNSNAME table adjacent to the node that requires an update (see Figure 13.10):

Figure 13.10 – The DNSNAME table.
The overall cluster status (displayed in the top section of the Clusters tab) is based on the values of the nodes within the cluster.
If one or more nodes require a non-critical update, the UP column displays a yellow alert symbol.
If one or more nodes require a critical update, the UP column for the cluster displays a red error symbol.
If one or more nodes have an unknown package status, the UP column for the cluster displays a grey checkmark.
