Deployment Architecture

Are there any special considerations we need to know when upgrading a Splunk search head cluster from 6.2 to 6.2.1?

I am preparing to upgrade from 6.2 to 6.2.1 in an environment that has search head clustering enabled. When we upgrade a pooled search head environment, there are special steps we need to take to ensure the apps are upgraded. Are there any special considerations that need to be made when upgrading a search head cluster?

Search head cluster upgrade procedures are now documented here:

http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.2.2/DistSearch/UpgradeaSHC

Any apps already on the cluster members should not be affected by the upgrade.
