This page describes how to upgrade Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) in a data center from version 6.x to any of the supported versions of RHEL.

To upgrade RHEL, you need to install Edge for Private Cloud in a new data center containing the new version of RHEL, and then decommission the old data center, as follows:

  1. Set up a new Apigee data center with servers containing the new version of RHEL. See Adding a data center.
  2. Install Edge for Private Cloud on the new servers, using a silent configuration file that expands on the existing installation.
  3. Add the servers to an existing cluster.
  4. Finally, decommission the old data center, as explained in Decommissioning a data center.
