Updating Centreon-HA platform
This procedure is intended to be used to perform minor updates of Centreon, when the Engine/Broker compatibility is assured between the old and the new version. No service downtime is necessary in this case, only a short outage of the Web UI login screen.
Suspend cluster resources management
In order to avoid a failover of the cluster during the update, it is necessary to unmanage all Centreon resources, as well as MariaDB.
pcs resource unmanage centreon
pcs resource unmanage ms_mysql
Update process from the WUI
Please, make sure all users logged out from the Centreon web interface before starting the upgrade procedure.
Update your cluster by running the following command on each node:
And then you should be able to finalize the update via the web UI. You might have to log off your session or to refresh the login page to access the update process.
On the slave central node, just move the "install" dir to avoid getting the "update" screen in the WUI in the event of a further exchange of roles.
mv /usr/share/centreon/www/install /var/lib/centreon/installs/install-update-YYYY-MM-DD
sudo -u apache /usr/share/centreon/bin/console cache:clear
Removing cron jobs
The RPM upgrade puts cron job back in place. Remove them to avoid concurrent executions:
Updating Centreon extensions
The Centreon extensions are also to be updated via the WUI, from the "Administration > Extensions > Manager" menu by clicking the "Update all" button.
Updating the Plugin Packs
In order to maintain compatibility between the Plugin Packs and the installed plugins (that have just been updated by the
yum update command on the central server), the plugin packs must be updated in the WUI too from the "Configuration > Plugin Packs" menu.
Updating the pollers
It is recommended to update the pollers as well, especially if
centreon-broker packages have been updated:
Exporting Engine/Broker configuration
Generate and export new Engine/Broker configuration files for all pollers (central included) in "Configuration -> Pollers" with these options checked:
- Generate Configuration Files
- Run monitoring engine debug (-v)
- Move Export Files
Then restart them one at a time from the same menu and make sure to select the "restart" method, not "reload", if the
centreon-broker packages have been updated.
In addition, the
cbd-sql service must be restarted on the central master server:
service cbd-sql restart
cbd service must also be restarted on Centreon Remote Servers as well:
service cbd restart
At this point everything should be working properly.
Resuming the cluster resources management
Now that the update is finished, the resources can be managed again:
pcs resource manage centreon
pcs resource manage ms_mysql
Verifying the platform stability
You should now check that eveything works fine:
- Access to the web UI menus.
- Poller configuration generation + reload and restart method.
- Schedule immediate check (Central + Pollers) and acknowledge, downtime etc.
- Move resources or reboot master server and check again that everything is fine.
