Upgrading High Availability Deployments

Friday, March 3rd, 2017

Generally the recommended path for upgrading a High Availability cluster is to first upgrade the secondary node. After it comes back up, disable CARP on the primary node under Status > CARP, and run on the secondary for a period of time. If the secondary node is running comfortably as desired, upgrade the primary node and it will switch back to MASTER status after rebooting for the upgrade.

ifconfig de(x) down  [where (x) corresponds to the nic you are troubleshooting for dhcp]

ifconfig de(x) up

dhclient de(x)

chmod 755 /etc/rc.local – to make it an executable for root.
