FAQs 10.4
Q: In a distributed SS (DSS) environment, what is the supported and best practice for upgrading servers?
A:
Upgrade the Primary MLS (main location server) SpectroSERVER first, followed by the Primary OneClick server, followed by the remaining Primary SpectroSERVERs. It is important that you start the primary MLS first, before starting the other primary SpectroSERVERs. This allows all of the cross landscape and "MOM" (manager of managers) functions to process and complete. Once the primary MLS is running and active, you can start the rest of the primaries.  Upgrade the Secondary SpectroSERVERs last (including all SpectroSERVER and non-primary OneClick servers). Once all SpectroSERVERs have been upgraded, be sure to stop and restart all
CA Spectrum
OneClick tomcat processes again to update the tomcat cache with the updated SS info. Not doing this will cause OneClick issues, such as landscapes not showing in the client.
In a DSS setup, if you stop a primary SS to test your failover scenario without performing a successful database synchronization (via online backup) first, you may see the landscapes disappear in OneClick. To make sure this does not happen, manually start the online backup and allow the database synchronization to occur. Once complete, you can then test your failover scenario.
