MDS upgrade CPUSE versus Advanced

Jump to solution

Hi,

I'm having problems to understand the difference / use case.  When to choose which method?

Which advantage has the advanced mode? Can't see it in sk163814

Thanks, Regards

Advanced Upgrade is based on a manual fresh install with migrate_server export / import. CPUSE in place upgrade creates a new partition, keeping the old version as fallback (could be deleted later after a successfull upgrade), and continues with fresh install using migrate_server export / import. So the difference is the needed HD space - CPUSE needs 2 times the space of Advanced Upgrade...

CPUSE is in place upgrade and advance mode is as good as creating a new MGMT and restoring the database . I would prefer to choose cpuse when data base size is small and if it simple management server

For MDS or for a large and critical data base i will prefer to chooses advance mode .

in place update  :

1. Fast and easy 

2. No need of hardware/vm  

2. Suitable for simple and small setup

 

Advance mode :

1.  Low production impact 

2. Easy to roll back

3. Need a separate VM/hardware 

4. More reliable
