RPM Upgrade

This topic provides upgrade instructions for RPM-based installations. These instructions assume you are using the default RPM installation paths for configuration, data and logging.

Upgrade Checklist

Performing an Upgrade

To upgrade your Dremio installation:

  1. Ensure that your existing Dremio cluster is backed up. See Create a backup for more information.

  2. Shut down all Dremio provisioned nodes. For example: service dremio stop

  3. On each Dremio node in your cluster, copy your old Dremio installation to another location on the node. For example:
    cp -r /opt/dremio /opt/dremio_bak

  4. Download and install the new Dremio version. For example:
    sudo yum install dremio-<version>.rpm

    • For YARN deployments, install on each coordinator node in your Dremio cluster.
    • For non-YARN deployments, install on all nodes in your Dremio cluster.
  5. Copy the /conf directory and associated configuration files from your backup-copy location (from Step# 3) to the new installation location. As a result, the default files from the fresh install are overwritten. For example:
    cp /opt/dremio_bak/conf/* /opt/dremio/conf

    • For YARN deployments, perform this step on each coordinator node in your Dremio cluster.
    • For non-YARN deployments, perform this step on all nodes in your Dremio cluster.
  6. On the master-coordinator node, copy the /data directory and associated data files from your backup-copy location (from Step# 3) to the new installation location. For example:
    cp -r /opt/dremio_bak/data /opt/dremio/data

    [warning] Important
    The new /data directory and files must be in the same directory path as the original installation. A different directory path results in the loss of all reflections because they are accessed by their full path.

    If your original data directory is in a location different from /opt/dremio/data, then this step can be skipped.

  7. On the master-coordinator node, execute the upgrade script as the user running the Dremio Daemon service. For example, as "dremio":
    dremio-<version>/bin/dremio-admin upgrade

  8. Start up all Dremio provisioned nodes in the Dremio cluster. For example: service dremio start.

  9. Backup your new Dremio cluster. See Create a backup for more information.
