procedure for update ACS with cumulutative patch in large deployment



I try to find the info within the CCO website but fail.

All docs I found on the site is Upgrading for 5.3 to 5.4  or 5.4 to 5.5

In my case I would like just apply cumulutative patch to my existing 5.4 running deployment. to


My main concern is I use a large deployment scenario with multiple secondary server and one log collector.

The upgrade procedure mention, de-register all server one by one and change the log collector to be a standalone primary server.

Which cause me more downtime, loss of some logs, ...

For applying patch (update not upgrade), I think I can just use the pacth procedure and leave the setup as it is as I don't upgrade or change the database structure.

Update each server whenever the role he as (secondary, primary, log collector) one by one by just issue the :"acs patch install" command.

Does anyone have a advise or a past experience about update large deployment setup.


Thanks for your help.

Hi Minakshi, I perform the

Hi Minakshi,


I perform the update before your post and I test without deregister all server.

So far, all was good.


I had no issue and the update tooks me very less time without following the full UPGRADE procedure.

The command had also a rollback for the update, so I take the risk.

This is certainly not the case for upgrade but update seems to easier.


Kind regards.
