13.5.1 Performing a Minor Version Upgrade

Table of Contents Previous Next



If you select the radio button next to OS and DB Minor Version Upgrade and click the Upgrade button, the Ark console will invoke the yum update command on each node of the cluster (see Figure 13.12). The yum update command will update all installed packages to the most recent version available of the same release (i.e., if you are running a 9.6 database server, yum will update your database server to the most recent version of 9.6).

After performing a yum update, the node will be rebooted, initiating any kernel updates required. When the update completes, EDB Ark will send an email notification that contains a list of the updated packages.
Please note that if the yum update command fails during the upgrade process, EDB Ark will terminate the process and yum update will not be run on any remaining nodes, leaving the cluster partially upgraded.
