Upgrade Order for Master/Data/Client Nodes


(Eric Martin) #1

I'm upgrading an existing cluster (v1.3.x to 1.4.x) that has separate master, client and data nodes.

I know I can do a rolling upgrade, but does the type of node impact the order that I upgrade? For example, should I upgrade all master nodes first?

You'd be better off going to 1.6 if you can.

I'd start with masters, then do data, then client.
