Create an upgrade environment: Upgrade_V1
When upgrading one or more colonies using the colony-by-colony upgrade strategy, you must first create an upgrade environment.
About this task
Performing the following tasks, as shown in Figure 1:
- Install an upgrade environment in the version that corresponds to the current version of the sharded deployment. In this example, install a new Release 10.0. run time in sharded mode (Upgrade_V1).
- For each colony in Production_V1 that you
are upgrading, add a new colony to Upgrade_V1. The new colony acts
as a placeholder in Upgrade_V1 for the colonies in Production_V1 that
you are upgrading. Later, you will move the colonies from Production_V1
to Upgrade_V1 and replace the placeholder colonies. In this example,
add CLY1_new to Upgrade_V1. Note: The DEFAULT colony is included with all new sharded installations.
