Hi,

There is a very descriptive document on upgrading a single machine Portal installation: Upgrade ArcGIS Enterprise—ArcGIS Enterprise | ArcGIS Enterprise 

However, I see nothing specific to doing an HA upgrade.  We are in the process of starting an upgrade of our installation from 10.5 to 10.7 and was hoping to find this documented,  

The plan right now is:

  1. Backups
  2. Upgrade primary portal
  3. Upgrade Site
  4. Upgrade secondary portal
  5. upgrade web adapters
  6. upgrade server farm 
    • ??? can this been done concurrently ???
  7. upgrade server web adapter(s)

We are not hosting data so do not have a hosting server or data store in the mix.

It would be great to get some input to validate this approach.

Thanks

-Joe

You will need to follow the documented steps in the link you have above.

I would also review this one: https://enterprise.arcgis.com/en/portal/latest/administer/windows/upgrade-portal-for-arcgis.htm for Portal and this one for the HA portion: https://enterprise.arcgis.com/en/portal/latest/administer/windows/configuring-a-highly-available-por...

There's an issue upgrading an HA portal to 10.7 that may cause the upgrade to not go through correctly. Within the haconfig.properties file in the items/portal-ha folder within the shared content directory, check the master.node property. If this doesn't match the current primary, (sign into Portaladmin and go to the Machines list), stop the current primary to cause a failover. The original primary must be the current primary otherwise an internal file isn't updated correctly. This is fixed at 10.7.1.

If that setting is correct are we going to be ok on the upgrade?  Should we need to check anything else before proceeding? 

Thanks
