Upgrading a single node to 9.0

Upgrading a single node to 9.0

Is this possible?
I don't have a separate management group for my test boxes, and really don't like the idea of sending 9.0 to every node in the management group untested in my environment.

Re: Upgrading a single node to 9.0

Apologies for the "me too" reply, but you're not alone on this one. Even with the advanced upgrade mode, I don't see how to upgrade single nodes.

The actual upgrade process appears to only reboot one node at a time, but it feels awkward to plan to cancel out of the CMC's upgrade process if something goes wrong... would that leave the SAN in a "worse" state for completing the upgrade?

I have the same feelings after my problems with updating to SANIQ_9...

I am in the process of creating several VSA's to test these upgrades outside of the cluster/managementgroup.

That is the only thing i can think of to avoid these nasty problems....

Call support on this one. There is a hidden Support Upgrades menu they can access to enable patching/upgrading of individual machines. It is important to actually log a call on this one. If we all call, then perhaps they will unhide the functionality in the next patch of the CMC.

Call Support, they can apply patches individually.
