Issue/Introduction

Is backing up the mysql.init script still required on performance center 3.6.4 as it was in prior versions

Environment

CAPM 3.x

Resolution

There should be no need to back up any init scripts for mysql when it comes to OS patching.  It is recommended that the vertica database be stopped before patching and rebooting the system.  A the dradmin (or equivalent user) you can run the following command to shut down the database:

/opt/vertica/bin/vsql -w dbpassword -c "SELECT SHUTDOWN('true');"
