Updating To A Specific Release

Updating To A Specific Release


Warning: Always backup your instance before performing any updates! See here.
 

Overview


In some cases it may be desirable to update to a specific release of Matillion ELT. This is possible in cases that you are using a relatively recent Matillion ETL version but is strictly not recommended. It is advisable that customers always update to the latest version or contact support.

 

In all cases it is vital that you backup your instance before continuing.

1. Check your version by issuing the following command from an SSH session as root:

yum list installed matillion*

Assuming you're on a Matillion version from the last 6 months or so, you should see two packages:

matillion-emerald.noarch
matillion-emerald-cdata.noarch

2. Check package availability with these commands:

yum list available matillion-emerald --showduplicates
yum list available matillion-emerald-cdata --showduplicates

3. To upgrade to a specific version, by default choose the latest point release inside the 1.x version.
You must keep the 1.x the same for both packages. For example you might choose:

matillion-emerald.noarch 1.31.8-1
matillion-emerald-cdata.noarch 1.31.8-3

4. Using the above example, you could then stop the tomcat service and install your selected version thusly:

service tomcat8 stop
yum install matillion-emerald-1.31.8-1
yum install matillion-emerald-cdata-1.31.8-3

5. Finally, restart the tomcat server:

service tomcat8 start
