Upgrade Question 4.3 to 5.0

Dear all,

we run a Graylog Instance (4.3.15) with OpenSearch 1.3.12 and MongoDB 5.0.21. Everything is fine. This is a Enterprise Instance with a an outdated license (fall back to open source license).

user7@sles_server:~> rpm -qa | grep graylog

In Graylog 5 we don’t have those listed packages anymore. Instead, there ist just the Enterprise package graylog-enterprise-5.0.10-1.x86_64.rpm or the Open package graylog-server-5.0.10-1.x86_64.rpm

What package do you recommend to install? Server or Enterprise?
The instance for now will run without Enterprise license, but will probably get in future a new Enterprise license.

Thanks in advance for the help.

I would recommend you go with the enterprise package, it is the base package with the enterprise plugins already installed. It behaves in the same way as before, those enterprise features stay disabled until you enable them with a license.

Hello Joel,

thanks for the recommendation.

I will install the Enterprise rpm package.

Hi @DietmarSchurr

Keep in mind the works that need to be done on MongoDB when updating
and you need to remove the plugins before updating to 5.0

You can than update rpm based with dnf swap graylog-server graylog-enterprise
