Upgrade from 5.5.24 --> 5.5.29

Asked by Victor Anjos on 2013-02-06

Been trying to run a LIVE upgrade (no downtime) on a 3-node cluster going from:

dpkg -l | grep percona
rc percona-server-client-5.5 5.5.25a-rel27.1-277.precise Percona Server database client binaries
ii percona-xtrabackup 2.0.1-446.precise Open source backup tool for InnoDB and XtraDB
ii percona-xtradb-cluster-client-5.5 5.5.24-23.6-341.precise Percona Server database client binaries
ii percona-xtradb-cluster-common-5.5 5.5.24-23.6-341.precise Percona Server database common files (e.g. /etc/mysql/my.cnf)
ii percona-xtradb-cluster-galera-2.x 113.precise Galera components of Percona XtraDB Cluster
ii percona-xtradb-cluster-server-5.5 5.5.24-23.6-341.precise Percona Server database server binaries

TO:

dpkg -l | grep percona
rc percona-server-client-5.5 5.5.25a-rel27.1-277.precise Percona Server database client binaries
ii percona-xtrabackup 2.0.5-499.precise Open source backup tool for InnoDB and XtraDB
ii percona-xtradb-cluster-client-5.5 5.5.29-23.7.1-387.precise Percona Server database client binaries
ii percona-xtradb-cluster-common-5.5 5.5.29-23.7.1-387.precise Percona Server database common files (e.g. /etc/mysql/my.cnf)
ii percona-xtradb-cluster-galera-2.x 143.precise Galera components of Percona XtraDB Cluster
ii percona-xtradb-cluster-server-5.5 5.5.29-23.7.1-387.precise Percona Server database server binaries

I am using rsync on the original cluster and for some reason, cannot get rsync to work on the new version to run this LIVE upgrade correctly. I would rather use xtrabackup anyway...

Is this possible? I am at a loss here!

Thank you,
Victor

Victor, I see the Percona XtraDB Cluster project does not use Launchpad's Question feature to track user question. So it will not been by developers.

I suggest posting this question to http://groups.google.com/group/percona-discussion where both Percona employees and Galera developers can see it and reply.
