Upgrading a Cluster

Prerequisites:

Note: If you are upgrading a cluster for the Location Intelligence Module only, follow the instructions in Upgrading a Cluster with the Location Intelligence Module. If you are upgrading both Spectrum and LIM clusters, before shutting down all nodes also see Upgrading a Cluster with the Location Intelligence Module for some required pre-upgrade steps.
Note: If you are upgrading a cluster for the Data Hub Module, see Upgrading a Cluster with the Data Hub Module for instructions on upgrading a cluster that has the Data Hub Module installed.
  1. Back up module-specific data for any of these modules if you have them installed.
    Module Items to Back Up
    Advanced Matching Module, Data Normalization Module, and Universal Name Module Back up the contents of these subfolders located in SpectrumLocation/server/modules:
    • cdqdb
    • lucene
    • matcher
    • parser
    • searchindex
    • tables
    .
    Data Hub Module If you do not already have a backup copy of your models, create a backup manually. To create a backup manually, open the Relationship Analysis Client and click Manage. Select the model you want to back up then click Backup.
    In addition to backing up your models, back up these two property files:
    • server\modules\hub\hub.properties
    • server\modules\db\neo4j.properties
    Location Intelligence Module Back up your named resources, data, and configuration files.
  2. Shut down all the Spectrumâ„¢ Technology Platform nodes in the cluster.
  3. Install the new version of Spectrumâ„¢ Technology Platformon each node in the cluster. For instructions, see Upgrading a Server.
