Upgrading With Databases Down

The upgrade instructions here are for stopping your NuoDB database(s), installing the latest NuoDB software and restarting brokers. NuoDB enforcement automatically restarts your database(s).

These instructions apply only if you are upgrading from a NuoDB database created with NuoDB 2.1 or later. If you are upgrading from a NuoDB database created prior to release 2.1, see Upgrading From Older Versions.

If you have a database that runs on multiple hosts and continuous availability is required, then the recommendation is to follow the instructions in Rolling Upgrade: Databases Remain Available.
