Ceph Jewel to Luminous
|Note: the current Ceph Luminous 12.1.x is the release candidate, for production ready Ceph Cluster packages please wait for version 12.2.x|
|Note: the current Ceph Luminous 12.1.x do not work with Opteron CPU and (very) old Intel Xeons|
This HOWTO explains the upgrade from Ceph Jewel to Luminous (12.1.0 or higher) on Proxmox VE 4.x.
More information see Release Notes
In this HOWTO we assume that all nodes are on the very latest Proxmox VE 4.4 version and Ceph is on Version Jewel (10.2.9).
The Cluster must be healthy and working.
On a cluster member you have to set sortbitwise. This is very important, if this flag is not set you can lose all your data.
ceph osd set sortbitwise
To avoid re-balance during the upgrade process set noout.
ceph osd set noout
Since Luminous you have to allow explicit to delete a pool. Edit /etc/pve/ceph.conf with your preferred editor and add this line in section [global]
mon allow pool delete = true
Preparation on each ceph cluster node
Change the current Ceph repositories from Jewel to Luminous.
sed -i 's/jewel/luminous/' /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ceph.list
More information see Ceph Packages
Upgrade on each ceph cluster node
Upgrade all your nodes with the following commands.
apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade
It will upgrade the Ceph on your node to Luminous. After the update you still run the old jewel binary.
Restart the Monitor daemon
After all cluster nodes are upgraded you have to restart the monitor on each nodes were a monitor run.
systemctl restart ceph-mon@<MON-ID>.service
Restart the OSD daemon on all nodes
Then restart all OSD's on all node
systemctl restart ceph-osd.target
Check cluster status and adjust settings
After your node has successful restarts the daemons, unset the 'noout' flag. On the GUI or by this command.
ceph osd unset noout
Now check if you Ceph cluster is healthy.
You will get a warning like this "require_osd_release < luminous" you can fix it with the following command.
ceph osd require-osd-release luminous
Also it is recommended to set the tunable to optimal, but this will produce a massive rebalance.
ceph osd set-require-min-compat-client jewel
ceph osd crush tunables optimal
