About this task
In this example, the sharded deployment, Production_V1, is deployed on Sterling Order Management System Software Release 9.5, and includes the colonies CLY1, CLY2, and CLY3. The following example describes the process of upgrading CLY1 to Release 10.0:
To upgrade CLY1 to Release 10.0, perform the following tasks:
- Create an Upgrade Environment: Upgrade_V1.
- Move CLY1 to the Upgrade Environment.
- Upgrade Upgrade_V1 to Release 10.0.
- Return CLY1 to the Production Environment.
After the colony-by-colony upgrade process is completed, a new sharded production environment, Production_V2, is established. Production_V2 is your new version, active sharded runtime. Production_V2 includes CLY1 running on Release 10.0, and CLY2 and CLY3 running on Release 9.5.
