[OpenAFS] mixing AFS versions for db servers?
Sat, 22 Oct 2011 01:05:06 +0200
we have a db server machine running 1.4.7 that seems to be having issues
with hardware. I have another machine running 1.6.x as a fileserver. Can
I promote that machine to be our second db server even if version
numbers don't match? That would allow me to temporarily withdraw the
first machine and do software and hardware maintenance.
Fortunately, the new machine has a higher IP address, and the dbservers
are distributed via DNS.
Adding more db servers is something we had wanted to do for a long time...
I remember this question came up before, but I can't find it in the
archive, sorry. The only reference I find is
which is admittedly rather old. Thanks,
