CPPM hw-5k cluster update 6.5.x

[ Edited ]
Hi,

Have a CCPM Cluster of x 2 hw-5k nodes running 6.5.x that need updating to 6.5.7.

Was wondering if anybody has found any unexpected issues.

At the moment the cluster is oversubscribed, as its doing more than 10K and recently showed GUI warning, so we're looking at options to add a third node and other options.

Also in previous updates/upgrades with less load the servers took a long time to reboot. I am concern this may happen again, any housekeeping tasks that may help?

In case anything goes wrong rollback is not an option since patches are installed on same partition, that means best option could be go to 6.0.x ? Or is there any way to go back to the original version?

Cheers,
DSP

[djj] - Use the guidelines we include in the ReleaseNotes to get an understanding on of the reboot times based upon your DB sizes.

[djj] - Correct, you cannot rollback a point patch. Upgrading to 6.6.2 [not 6.0.x] would be a better option and you get the additional advantage of the 6.6 features we added. Then you would if necessary be able to role back to your 6.5.x image via the appadmin cli boot-image command.
