Upgrade of Elasticsearch


(Jonar B) #1

How can i upgrade elasticsearch from 2.2 to 5.5?
As I install the rpm package, there a conflict.
Do I need to uninstall the previous elasticsearch?

TIA

It should be as simple as following https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/5.5/setup-upgrade.html

Yes. I based my work with that guide.

Shutdown and upgrade all nodes

Stop all Elasticsearch services on all nodes in the cluster. Each node can be upgraded following the same procedure described in [upgrade-node].

But i'm not sure with that step.
Based from that, I have to perform rolling upgrade right?
And on the step 3 of rolling upgrade:

To upgrade using a Debian or RPM package

I did download the rpm package and install.
Is that correct?

No, just do each and every node before starting them all up.

You'd probably be better off using the repos if you can.


(Jonar B) #5

Yes. I just have single node running in my system.

What kind of repos will be better to use?

I download from the rpm repos and I completely downloaded and installed the new package.
but upon starting the elasticsearch, I got this error

[root@centos7 yum.repos.d]# service elasticsearch start
