High Availability

Hi support

What is the recommended approach for upgrading Octopus on an HA set? Is it possible to upgrade Octopus without any downtime? I’ve had a look through docs but can’t find anything related to upgrading Octopus, only patching, in this article: http://docs.octopusdeploy.com/display/OD/Managing+High+Availability+Nodes

Looking forward to hearing from you


Hi Leslie,

Thanks for getting in touch! We have a documentation page specifically for configuring Octopus to use HA. http://docs.octopusdeploy.com/display/OD/Configuring+Octopus+for+High+Availability
Some of the steps you will have already completed, such as ‘Configuring the first node’ as your existing instance will be your first node.
Things that you do still need to consider are any of your paths that are local will now need to be converted to shared or replicated storage. This is explained in the Shared Storage section, with details on how to change existing paths under Configure shared storage.

Please have a read through the documentation, and if you have any questions please let me know.
