Hi Octopus Team, Octopus Community!
I’d like ask for your advice on upgrading Octopus.
I am planning to upgrade Octopus v2018.1.0 to the latest LTS version. AFAIK the upgrade of Tentacles (we have around 300) is required.
I cannot upgrade Tentacles via portal, cause Tentacle is installed in custom location. AFAIK it is not possible to change the installation path when upgrading via portal – Am I right?
The best solution for us would be to update them prior to the upgrade of Octopus Server. Is using new version of Tentacle (v4) with Octopus v2018 possible?
Our setup is quite complex, cause currently we have 2 different versions of Tentacles running on each server (I had to keep old Tentacle that is used to connect to Octopus Deploy v2). I know that installation via msi will overwrite the ‘path to executable’ for Tentacle services – which is fine, cause the old Octopus v2 is under decommissioning process .
Also, I’d like to lock the current version of Tentacle on portal, making sure that other people cannot upgrade them. Are you aware of a script that lock the version for all deployment targets via API? I can try to create it by myself, however I am more that sure (octopus has a great community!) that someone has probably created it already
Your help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
