JIRA 7 data center upgrade instuction

Is there new instructions for upgrading to JIRA-Software data center ?  From the hub it looks like there is a new installer, not sure if this will work with data center.

At this time, the process to upgrade JIRA Data Center is identical to that of JIRA Server. Upgrades of each node are done one at a time. Once the upgrade process is complete, you'll then bring each node back up in the cluster one at a time.

Hello @Pelle Kirkeby. If I have two nodes in Data Center, the procedure is, disconecting both nodes from the load balancer, upgrade one node, upgrade the second node, and conecting them again to the load balancer?

That is correct :)

Is there a need to copy the 5 home directory folders to the shared drive used by Data center or no?

I installed a newer version of JIRA core on one of my nodes, started it back up, and am having issues getting it to then update JIRA Software and Service desk.

this is what i would do in order to have no downtime while upgrading. doesn't matter how many nodes you have running....


as of now there is definitely no need to disconnect all your nodes from the Loadbalancer




Kind Regards
