Upgrading Component Pack Services

Upgrade an existing deployment of Component Pack Services for HCL Connections™.

Before you begin

These instructions to upgrade Component Pack apply only to an in-place upgrade.

Note the following considerations:
  1. Depending on which Component Pack version you are running:
  2. The in-place approach makes use of existing hardware and avoids downtime. In this release, it also necessitates (after you complete the Component Pack upgrade), that you do a stepwise Kubernetes upgrade from v1.11.9 to v1.17.2 (relying on Kubernetes documentation).
Note: A strategy for side-by-side migration of Component Pack is being finalized; documentation will become available in the near future.

To get started with an in-place upgrade, download Component Pack 6.5.0.0 and/or 6.5.0.1 from the HCL FlexNet portal, and then continue with this section.
