Upgrades in AWS Elemental Live

This section describes how to upgrade to AWS Elemental Live software version to a higher version.

Upgrade rules

The following rules apply when you're upgrading AWS Elemental Live software.

  • Your system must be in a working state prior to the upgrade. If it's in a degraded state (such as not accepting events or not responding through the web interface), the upgrade fails.

  • You can upgrade to a version that's a maximum of two major versions above your current version. For example, from 2.20.x to 2.22.x. (The number of minor versions between the two major versions is irrelevant.)

  • To upgrade over a bigger span, you must perform the upgrade in several steps. For example, to upgrade from version 2.17.x to 2.22.x, upgrade from version 2.17.x to 2.19.0, then to 2.21.0, then to 2.22.x.


Plan to upgrade during a maintenance window. All activity on the nodes stops during upgrade.


The same procedure applies to upgrading to any version of AWS Elemental Live that is version 2.14 or later. Only the version number in the installation file changes. In this procedure, we show how to upgrade from version 2.20.x to version Wherever an instruction shows, modify your entry to specify the version that you are upgrading to.
