Upgrading MySQL for PCF

This topic explains how to upgrade the MySQL for Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) service and existing service instances. It also explains the service interruptions that can result from service changes and upgrades and from failures at the process, VM, and IaaS level.

Upgrade MySQL for PCF

To upgrade the MySQL for PCF service, you follow the same Ops Manager process that you use to install the service for the first time. Your configuration settings migrate to the new version automatically. To perform an upgrade:

  1. Review the Release Notes for the version you are upgrading to.

  2. Download the desired version of the product from Pivotal Network.

  3. Navigate to the Ops Manager Installation Dashboard and click Import a Product to upload the product file.

  4. Under the Import a Product button, click + next to MySQL for PCF. This adds the tile to your staging area.

  5. Click the newly-added MySQL for PCF tile to review its configuration panes. Click Save on any panes where you make changes.

  6. Return to the Installation Dashboard and click Apply Changes.

Upgrading the MySQL for PCF service and service instances can temporarily interrupt the service, as described below.

Upgrade MySQL Instances

After upgrading the MySQL for PCF service, operators can run the upgrade-all service broker errand to upgrade existing service instances to be in sync with the new version of the service.

Both operators and developers can upgrade existing service instances individually by running the cf update-service command. See Managing Service Instances with the cf CLI.

Service Interruptions

Service changes and upgrades and failures at the process, VM, and IaaS level can cause outages in the MySQL for PCF service, as described below.

Read this section if:

  • You are experiencing a service interruption and are wondering why.
  • You are planning to update or change a service instance and want to know if it might cause a service interruption.

Stemcell or Service Update

An operator updates a stemcell version or their version of MySQL for PCF.

  • Impact: Apps lose access to the MySQL service while PCF updates the service instance they are bound to. The service should resume within 10–15 minutes.
  • Required Actions: None. If the update deploys successfully, apps reconnect automatically.

Plan Change

A developer changes their service instance to provide a different service plan, using cf update-service or Apps Manager.

  • Impact: Apps lose access to the MySQL service while PCF updates the service instance they are bound to. The service should resume within 10–15 minutes.
  • Required Actions: None. If the plan change deploys successfully, apps reconnect automatically.
