Livecache patch upgrade in MSCS environment

Hello everyone,

I have installed livecache 7.7.02 BUILD 008-123-149-275 in MSCS and planning to upgrade the patch level to KERNEL 7.7.04 BUILD 029-123-196-543.

My installation type is,

Independent Programs directory - local hard disk

Independent Data Directory - distributed disk

Instance Dependent directory - local hard disk

So note Note 508979 - Upgrade of SAP DB/MaxDB/liveCache w/ Cluster MSCS Var.1 applies in my case.

However, need help in understanding one section of this note,

Points 14 and 15 talk about notes on how to run SDBUPD, however do not specify whether SDBUPD is to be run on node B. After manually copying the files to node B, as described in the note, do we still need to run upgrade (SDBUPD) on node 2 ?

Also, It would be great to have some more reading on Livecache upgrades in MSCS environment.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Kiran

    Hello Kiran,

    in previous step note says to switch the cluster group to node B,

    and also you have already upgraded software in node A before (with sdbinst)

    so SDBUPD shouldbe run in node B in step 14

    yes you do need to upgrade node B as there is only few files copied to node B manualy

    Hello Kiran,

    running sdbinst can work as workaround but do not forget to upgrade system tables after runnign

    sdbinst. And also sdbinst can be used only and only whne doing minor upgrade.
