Upgrading Remote Services

While you can deploy new technical releases within an existing Remote Services installation, a new major or minor release will require a Remote Services upgrade. The upgrade must be done on all nodes in your cluster. The steps are as follows:

  1. Stop all nodes in your cluster.
  2. Install the new Remote Services package on all nodes, and adjust the configuration file (grb_rs.cnf) to reflect any changes you made previously. If you started grb_rs as a service, you will need to uninstall the service first, and then install it again.
  3. If necessary, upgrade your license file (or modify GRB_LICENSE_FILE to point to the new license file).
  4. Start and join all the nodes to re-form the cluster.

See the earlier section on setting up Remote Services for details on installing the Remote Services package, and the section on processing state for details on starting and stopping nodes.
