You can upgrade your DRDS instance to the latest version to immediately experience the new features. This topic describes how to upgrade the instance version of DRDS in the console.

Notes

  • Before you upgrade your instance, perform comprehensive verification on an instance of the recommended version in advance to prevent SQL compatibility issues. We recommend that you initiate a change evaluation for verification.
  • You cannot perform other operations during the upgrade, such as database creation and smooth scale-out.
  • You can roll back an upgraded instance within 24 hours, but you cannot change the configurations. To roll back the instance after the rollback time expires, you must Submit a ticket.
  • Transient connection errors occur and a few errors are reported during the upgrade. We recommend that you perform the upgrade during off-peak hours.
