netdisco-db-deploy - Database deployment for Netdisco


This script upgrades or initialises a Netdisco database schema.

 ~netdisco/bin/netdisco-db-deploy [--redeploy-all]

This script connects to the database and runs without user interaction. If there's no Nedisco schema, it is deployed. If there's an unversioned schema then versioning is added, and updates applied. Otherwise only necessary updates are applied to an already versioned schema.

Pre-existing requirements are that there be a database table created and a user with rights to create tables in that database. Both the table and user name must match those configured in your environment YAML file (default ~/environments/deployment.yml).

If you wish to force the redeployment of all database configuration, pass the --redeploy-all argument on the command line.


  • Version 1 is a completely empty database schema with no tables

  • Version 2 is the "classic" Netdisco database schema as of Netdisco 1.1

  • Versions 5 to 16 add patches for Netdisco 1.2

  • Version 17 onwards deploys schema upgrades for Netdisco 2
