Upgrades in AWS Elemental Server

Upgrade rules

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

  • Your system must be in a working state prior to the upgrade. If it's in a degraded state (such as not accepting jobs 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, such as from 2.14.x to 2.15.x. The number of patches between the two versions is irrelevant. To upgrade over a bigger span, you must perform several upgrades, such as from 2.12.2 to 2.14.4, then to 2.15.0.


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