Upgrade Mariadb


This is my current environment:

  • Icinga 2 v2.8.1
  • Icinga Web 2 v2.5.1
  • Mariadb 5.5.56

We are planning to upgrade Mariadb to a version > 10.2 and i have the following doubts:

  1. Is it supported with our current Icinga 2 version?
  2. Do we need to also upgrade the Icinga 2 version or we can just upgrade the database and it will be transparent to Icinga?

Thank you very much
Best Regards

the mariadb upgrade has nothing to do with icinga. I would recommend to export the databases useing the mysqldump tool and reimport them on the newly installed mariadb 10.2.
I had using mariadb 10.x with no problems in the past.
