Issue/Introduction

Running older unsupported r3.5 release and need to upgrade to the latest r20.2.x release.

Environment

Release : 3.5

Component : IM Reporting / Admin / Configuration

Resolution

A: DA, DC's, and PC go direct to r20.2.x
B: The Data Repository upgrade from r3.5 to r20.2.x requires two upgrade cycles.

  1. First, we upgrade to the Vertica release r9.0.1-7 used by the PM r3.6.x releases.
  2. Lastly, we upgrade to the Vertica release r9.1.1-5 used by the PM r20.2.x releases.

When the Data Aggregator r20.2.x Install media is first extracted we should find the following files:

  • 3.6_installDR.bin which is used to upgrade to the Vertica release r9.0.1-7 used by the PM r3.6.x releases.
  • installDR.bin which is used to upgrade to the Vertica release r9.1.1-5 used by the PM r20.2.x releases.

High-level steps:

  1. Stop Data Aggregator
  2. Upgrade Vertica system using 3.6_installDR.bin
  3. Upgrade Vertica system using installDR.bin (r20.2.x version)
  4. Upgrade Performance Center
  5. Upgrade Data Aggregator
  6. Upgrade Data Collector(s)
