Question on Couchbase Upgrade Method

When upgrading Couchbase, the official documentation suggests using yum update when the Cluster is offline, and using autoremove followed by a Couchbase install when the Cluster is online.

Is it also possible to use yum update when the Cluster is online?

  • I’m curious if yum update can be used for both online and offline situations.

The main question is whether it’s acceptable to use update instead of autoremove in Stage Three, Step 3, as described on the following website: Upgrade a Reduced-Capacity, Online Cluster | Couchbase Docs
