Default multiserver strategy to migrate from 3.0.4.6 to 3.0.5

Hello
I have a multiserver infrastructure with more than 70 vm and one cp; further, in each site I have a VM with cp mysql db replica.

which is the correct strategy to migrate all of them from 3.0.4.6 to 3.0.5?
I argue that I should start from cp and then upgrade all the others 70 vm linkd to cp.

My questions are:
are database tables structure changed?
If they are as i can imagine, mail server will be unable to authenticate until i Upgrade ispconfig on them (I remember this when migrated by 3.4.3 to 3.0.4.4 and was changed password column or something similar)
when I upgrade cp, what happen to other VM? stop to sync until I upgrade them?

please share your experience if you have one

yes.

No. The table which is used for authentication ahs not been changed.

The servers of a cluster do not depend on the master for normal operation, you can even stop the master without affecting them. The only thing that you cant do unti the update is finsihed on all nodes is tao add new meilboxes or domains trough the master.

Btw. You should wait for the 3.0.5.1 release with the update as it contains bugfixes in the update procedure.

So, a god strategy can be:
stop al cron
Code:
* * * * * /usr/local/ispconfig/server/server.sh > /dev/null 2>> /var/log/ispconfig/cron.log
30 00 * * * /usr/local/ispconfig/server/cron_daily.sh > /dev/null 2>> /var/log/ispconfig/cron.log
an all nodes. Then, upgrade master, then for each node i upgrade, I restart cron.


Thi sway I haven't any polling by nodes that query a db structure different by that they expect and all is clean and clear

There are changes in the api like new functions and additiona attributes for websites but if I remember correctly none of these changes should cause poblems with the roundcube plugin.
