Getting Started with the Upgrade

When you are ready to begin your upgrade, complete the following steps just before you begin your upgrade.

  • Stop traffic: Traffic must be stopped into the Canister.
    1. In HBR environment: If you deployed an HBR server, you can manage traffic through the HBR. See Stopping Traffic at the HBR.
    2. In non-HBR environment: If you do not use HBR, you can stop traffic through Search Server. See Stopping Traffic into Each Canister.
  • Complete a Data Collector run: Allow one Data Collector run to complete before you begin the upgrade. See Completing Data Collection.
