Example: Upgrading DSE to a minor release using LCM

End-to-end example of upgrading DSE from version 5.1.0 to 5.1.3 using Lifecycle Manager.

Follow the steps in this end-to-end example of upgrading DSE from version 5.1.0 to 5.1.3 using Lifecycle Manager. This example clones a config profile and runs an upgrade job for a datacenter.

The basic steps are:
  1. Clone a DSE version 5.1.0 config profile to DSE version 5.1.3 from the Config Profiles page.
  2. Associate the newly cloned config profile with the datacenter in the Clusters page.
  3. Run an upgrade job for the datacenter from the Clusters page.
  4. View the status of the upgrade job in the Jobs pages.


This example assumes you have reviewed the DSE upgrade guide and performed any necessary prerequisite steps applicable to the DSE version you have planned to upgrade to.


  1. Click Config Profiles from the Lifecycle Manager navigation menu.
  2. Click the clone icon for the config profile you want to clone. This example selects an existing config profile for DSE version 5.1.0.
