MySQL 5.6 Reference Manual  /  ...  /  Upgrading and Downgrading NDB Cluster

18.2.8 Upgrading and Downgrading NDB Cluster

This section provides information about NDB Cluster software and table file compatibility between different NDB Cluster 7.3 releases with regard to performing upgrades and downgrades as well as compatibility matrices and notes. You are expected already to be familiar with installing and configuring an NDB Cluster prior to attempting an upgrade or downgrade. See Section 18.3, “Configuration of NDB Cluster”.

Important

Only compatibility between MySQL versions with regard to NDBCLUSTER is taken into account in this section, and there are likely other issues to be considered. As with any other MySQL software upgrade or downgrade, you are strongly encouraged to review the relevant portions of the MySQL Manual for the MySQL versions from which and to which you intend to migrate, before attempting an upgrade or downgrade of the NDB Cluster software. See Section 2.11.1, “Upgrading MySQL”.

The tables shown here provide information on NDB Cluster upgrade and downgrade compatibility among different releases of NDB Cluster 7.3 and of NDB Cluster 7.4, respectively. Additional notes about upgrades and downgrades to, from, or within the NDB Cluster 7.3 and NDB Cluster 7.4 release series can be found following the tables.

Upgrades and Downgrades, NDB Cluster 7.4

Figure 18.22 NDB Cluster Upgrade and Downgrade Compatibility, NDB Cluster 7.4

NDB Cluster 7.4.x upgrade/downgrade compatibility

Version support.  The following versions of NDB Cluster are supported for upgrades to NDB Cluster 7.4 (7.4.4 and later):

  • NDB Cluster 7.3 GA releases (7.3.2 and later)

  • NDB Cluster 7.2 GA releases (7.2.4 and later)

  • NDB Cluster 7.1 GA releases (7.1.3 and later)

  • NDB Cluster 7.0 GA releases (7.0.5 and later)

NDB 7.4.10 Replacement Release.  Shortly after the release of NDB 7.4.9, a regression was discovered that adversely affected node and system restarts (Bug #22582233). This issue was known to affect NDB 7.4.8 as well. NDB 7.4.10—incorporating a fix for this regression, but otherwise identical to NDB 7.4.9—was released shortly thereafter as a replacement. Users of the NDB 7.4 series are advised to bypass the 7.4.8 and 7.4.9 releases and to upgrade directly to NDB 7.4.10 (or later).

Known Issues—NDB 7.4

  • Prior to NDB 7.4.4, when upgrading from NDB 7.3 to NDB 7.4, the first new data node binary to be started caused the master node (still running NDB 7.3) to fail, then itself failed. (Bug #20608889)

  • Prior to NDB 7.4.3, mysql_upgrade failed to drop and recreate ndbinfo. (Bug #74863, Bug #20031425) In addition, when running mysql_upgrade on an NDB Cluster SQL node, the expected drop of the performance_schema database on this node was instead performed on all SQL nodes connected to the cluster. (Bug #200328691)

Upgrades and Downgrades, NDB Cluster 7.3

NDB Cluster 7.3.x upgrade/downgrade compatibility

Version support.  The following versions of NDB Cluster are supported for upgrades to NDB Cluster 7.3 (7.3.2 and later):

  • NDB Cluster 7.2 GA releases (7.2.4 and later)

  • NDB Cluster 7.1 GA releases (7.1.3 and later)

  • NDB Cluster 7.0 GA releases (7.0.5 and later)

  • NDB Cluster 6.3 GA releases (6.3.8 and later) that can be upgraded to NDB Cluster 7.1

Known Issues—NDB 7.3

  • Prior to NDB 7.3.8, mysql_upgrade failed to drop and recreate ndbinfo. (Bug #74863, Bug #20031425) In addition, when running mysql_upgrade on an NDB Cluster SQL node, the expected drop of the performance_schema database on this node was instead performed on all SQL nodes connected to the cluster. (Bug #200328691)

  • NDB API, ClusterJ, and other applications used with recent releases of NDB Cluster 6.3 and later should continue to work with NDB 7.3.2 and later without rewriting or recompiling.

  • It is not possible to downgrade online to NDB 7.3.2 or earlier from NDB 7.3.3 or later. Online upgrades from NDB 7.3.2 to later NDB Cluster 7.3 releases are supported.
