juju deploy postgresql --channel 14/stable
Example: PostgreSQL 14.9 -> PostgreSQL 14.8
(including simple charm revision bump: from revision 43 to revision 42)
Minor rollback steps
- Prepare “Charmed PostgreSQL” Juju application for the in-place rollback. See the step description below for all technical details executed by charm here.
- Rollback. Once started all units in a cluster will be executed sequentially. The rollback will be aborted (paused) if the unit rollback has failed.
- Check. Make sure the charm and cluster are in healthy state again.
juju refresh, case there any version incompatibilities in charm revisions or it dependencies, or any other unexpected failure in the upgrade process, the upgrade process will be halted an enter a failure state.
Although the underlying PostgreSQL Cluster continue to work, it’s important to rollback the charm to previous revision so an update can be later attempted after a further inspection of the failure.
To execute a rollback we take the same procedure as the upgrade, the difference being the charm revision to upgrade to. In case of this tutorial example, one would refresh the charm back to revision
182, the steps being:
Step 1: Prepare
It is necessary to re-run
pre-upgrade-check action on the leader unit, to enter the upgrade recovery state:
juju run postgresql/leader pre-upgrade-check
Step 2: Rollback
When using charm from charmhub:
juju refresh postgresql --revision=182
Case deploying from local charm file, one need to have the old revision charm file and run:
juju refresh postgresql --path=./postgresql_ubuntu-22.04-amd64.charm
postgresql_ubuntu-22.04-amd64.charm is the previous revision charm file.
The first unit will be rolled out and should rejoin the cluster after settling down. After the refresh command, the juju controller revision for the application will be back in sync with the running Charmed PostgreSQL revision.
