Migrating database from Vertica cluster 6 to the new Vertica cluster 7

We have 2 Vertica clusters, one running ver 6 and one running ver 7. Is it possible to migrate database from Vertica 6 cluster to the new Vertica 7 cluster? If it is, can you please point me to the instructions on how to do it?


  • i would remove the vertica 7 software from the target cluster, install the same version 6 as on source, run a copy cluster operation and then upgrade the target to version 7. Sounds like a lot of operations, but they are quick for the most part , except the copy itself which depends on the network bandwidth between the 2 clusters.
  • Thanks for your response.
