Upgrades

Introduction

As of 0.13.0, upgrading Netmaker is a manual process. This is expected to be automated in the future, but for now, is still a relatively straightforward process.

Critical Notes for 0.13.X

If upgrading from 0.12 to 0.13, refer to this gist: https://gist.github.com/afeiszli/f53f34eb4c5654d4e16da2919540d0eb

Critical Notes for 0.10.0

At the time of this writing, an upgrade process has not been defined for 0.10.0. DO NOT follow this documentation to upgrade from a prior version to 0.10.0. An upgrade process will be defined shortly. For now, if you seek to upgrade to 0.10.0, you must clear your server entirely (docker-compose down –volumes), uninstall your netclients, and re-install netmaker + netclients.

Upgrade the Server (prior to 0.10.0)

To upgrade the server, you only need to change the docker image versions:

  1. ssh root@my-server-ip

  2. docker-compose down

  3. vi docker-compose.yml

  4. Change gravitl/netmaker:<version> and gravitl/netmaker-ui:<version> to the new version.

  5. Save and close the file

  6. docker-compose up -d

Upgrade the server after v0.16.1

There have been changes to the MQ after v0.16.1. You will need to make changes to the docker-compose.yml and get the new mosquitto.conf files. We recommend upgrading your server first before any clients.

Start by shutting down your server with docker-compose down

You then need to get the updated mosquitto.conf file. You will also need to get the wait.sh file and make sure it is executable.

wget -O /root/mosquitto.conf https://raw.githubusercontent.com/gravitl/netmaker/master/docker/mosquitto.conf
wget -q -O /root/wait.sh https://raw.githubusercontent.com/gravitl/netmaker/develop/docker/wait.sh
chmod +x wait.sh

Then make the following changes to the docker-compose.yml file.

  1. change image tags in netmaker and netmaker-ui service sections to gravitl/netmaker:v.0.16.1.

  2. In your netmaker service section:
    1. In the volumes section, change - shared_certs:/etc/netmaker to - mosquitto_data:/etc/netmaker

    2. In the environment section, add MQ_ADMIN_PASSWORD: "<CHOOSE_A_PASSWORD_YOU_WOULD_LIKE_TO_USE>"

  3. In the mq service section:
    1. Add command: ["/mosquitto/config/wait.sh"]

    2. Add an environment section and add NETMAKER_SERVER_HOST: "https://api.NETMAKER_BASE_DOMAIN"

    3. In the volumes, add - /root/wait.sh:/mosquitto/config/wait.sh

    4. You need to make some changes to the labels. a few of them just need mqtts to be mqtt. The labels should look like this:

    - traefik.enable=true
    - traefik.tcp.routers.mqtt.rule=HostSNI(`broker.NETMAKER_BASE_DOMAIN`)
    - traefik.tcp.routers.mqtt.tls.certresolver=http
    - traefik.tcp.services.mqtt.loadbalancer.server.port=8883
    - traefik.tcp.routers.mqtt.entrypoints=websecure
    

Your MQ section should look like this after the changes.

mq:
container_name: mq
image: eclipse-mosquitto:2.0.11-openssl
depends_on:
  - netmaker
restart: unless-stopped
command: ["/mosquitto/config/wait.sh"]
environment:
  NETMAKER_SERVER_HOST: "https://api.NETMAKER_BASE_DOMAIN"
volumes:
  - /root/mosquitto.conf:/mosquitto/config/mosquitto.conf
  - /root/wait.sh:/mosquitto/config/wait.sh
  - mosquitto_data:/mosquitto/data
  - mosquitto_logs:/mosquitto/log
expose:
  - "8883"
labels:
  - traefik.enable=true
  - traefik.tcp.routers.mqtt.rule=HostSNI(`broker.NETMAKER_BASE_DOMAIN`)
  - traefik.tcp.routers.mqtt.tls.certresolver=http
  - traefik.tcp.services.mqtt.loadbalancer.server.port=8883
  - traefik.tcp.routers.mqtt.entrypoints=websecure

You should be all set to docker-compose up -d

Note: Your clients will show in warning until they are also upgraded. The upgrade for clients is the regular upgrade, then do a netclient pull

Your docker logs mq should be showing logs like this:

If you see mq logs about waiting for netmaker server to startup after longer period than usual, check if your traefik certs are generated correctly. You can try to resolve with docker restart traefik

Upgrade the server to use 0.17.0 after Upgrading for 0.16.3

Version 0.17.0 uses Caddy instead of traefik.

Open a Terminal window (shell prompt). To set up Caddy you’ll need to configure the Caddyfile as follows.

If you are using the Community Edition of Netmaker use this command: .. code-block:

wget -O /root/Caddyfile "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/gravitl/netmaker/master/docker/Caddyfile"

If you are using the Enterprise Edition of Netmaker use this command: .. code-block:

wget -O /root/Caddyfile "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/gravitl/netmaker/master/docker/Caddyfile-EE"

Once you have a Caddyfile you’ll need to run these two commands:

sed -i "s/NETMAKER_BASE_DOMAIN/$NETMAKER_BASE_DOMAIN/g" /root/Caddyfile
sed -i "s/YOUR_EMAIL/$EMAIL/g" /root/Caddyfile

Where $NETMAKER_BASE_DOMAIN is the base domain you used for your Netmaker setup (the part after “dashboard.” in your Dockerfile) and $YOUR_EMAIL is your email address.

Upgrade the Clients (prior to 0.10.0)

To upgrade the client, you must get the new client binary and place it in /etc/netclient. Depending on the new vs. old version, there may be minor incompatibilities (discussed below).

  1. Visit https://github.com/gravitl/netmaker/releases/

  2. Find the appropriate binary for your machine.

  3. Download. E.x.: wget https://github.com/gravitl/netmaker/releases/download/vX.X.X/netclient-myversion

  4. Rename binary to netclient and move to folder. E.x.: mv netclient-myversion /etc/netclient/netclient

  5. netclient –version (confirm it’s the correct version)

  6. netclient pull

This last step helps ensure any newly added fields are now present. You may run into a “panic” based on missing fields and your version mismatch. In such cases, you can either:

  1. Add the missing field to /etc/netclient/config/netconfig-yournetwork and then run “netclient checkin”

or

  1. Leave and rejoin the network
