Use the tpm update command to upgrade to the latest version.
tar zxf tungsten-replicator-5.3.6-24.tar.gzshell>
./tools/tpm update --replace-release
The use of
--replace-release is not mandatory for minor version
upgrades, for exampe from v6.1.3 to v6.1.4, however it is
highly recommended when upgrading between major version for example
v6.0.x to v6.1.x, or v5.x to v6.x.
Using this option will ensure that underlying metadata and property files are cleanly rebuilt, thus ensuring any new or deprecated properties between releases are correctly added/removed acordingly.
After unpacking the new software into the staging directory, the
tpm update command will read the
tungsten.ini configuration and install the new
software. All services will be stopped and the new services will be
During the lifetime of the cluster, switches may happen and the current
Primary may well be a different node than what is reflected in the static
ini file in the
master= line. Normally, this difference
is ignored during an update or an upgrade.
However, if a customer has some kind of procedure (i.e. automation) which
hand-edits the ini configuration file
master= line at
some point, and such hand-edits do not reflect the current reality at the
time of the update/upgrade, an update/upgrade will fail and the cluster
may be left in an indeterminate state.
The best practice is to NOT change the
in the INI configuration file after installation.
There is still a window of opportunity for failure. The update will
continue, passing the
CurrentTopologyCheck test and
potentially leaving the cluster in an indeterminate state if the
master= option is set to a hostname that is not the
current Primary or the current host.
