  • Supported Indirect Upgrades

    If your cluster is running one of the Aster Database versions listed in this section, you must perform an indirect upgrade. Work with your Account Team to order the recommended software for your specific upgrade path.

Teradata Aster recommends that you back up all data before performing any upgrade. Because of this, in the case where you will be performing an upgrade that involves two or more hops, you should perform a backup before each upgrade. This minimizes the number of steps you need to backtrack in case of power failure, network or hardware failure, or anything else that might disrupt an upgrade.

For indirect upgrades, follow the instructions in the documentation for each release when upgrading to that release.

If you wish to upgrade from a release that is not listed, contact Teradata Global Technical Support (GTS) for the upgrade path to follow.
