Upgrading Your Operating System on Nodes in Your Vertica Cluster
If you need to upgrade the operating system on the nodes in your Vertica cluster, check with the documentation for your Linux distribution to make sure they support the particular upgrade you are planning.
For example, the following articles provide information about upgrading Red Hat:
- How do I upgrade from Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7?
- Does Red Hat support upgrades between major versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux?
After you confirm that you can perform the upgrade, follow the steps at Best Practices for Upgrading the Operating System on Nodes in a Vertica Cluster.
