    Update Server 2018.2.0 to 2018.2.2 on a multi-node cluster

    Ralph Ulrich

      Does anybody know if I have to follow the same procedure I did when upgrading from 2018.1 generating bootstrap files etc.?

       

      Or will the update just require to execute the setup on the main node like in the earlier versions?

          I was just studying the docs for a 18.2.0 to 18.2.2 upgrade I am doing tomorrow.  It is a new procedure that seems to be a lot easier/faster.

           

          I'd done the upgrade on a single node server earlier, and it went like this:

          - Do a backup

          - With Tableau Server still running, run the 18.2.2 installer (this stages files for the update script.)

          - After the installer finishes, shut down Tableau Server and run the upgrade script.

          - Restart Tableau Server and verify

          - Be happy

           

          So my plan for my 3-node upgrade is:

          - Do a backup

          - With Tableau Server still running, run the 18.2.2 installer ON EACH NODE.

          - After the installer finishes, shut down Tableau Server and run the upgrade script ON EACH NODE.

          - Restart Tableau Server and verify

          - Be happy

           

          The thing I am not sure about is that the old version still shows installed, and I am not sure if its safe to uninstall:
