installation of Mysql Client RPM on backend servers


I need to remove old mysql client rpm’s and installed latest one on backend servers in Production environment I was wondering if uninstalling and installing mysql client , shared and compact rpm’s have any impact on production env. or can break any currently running jobs.

Please shed some light.

Thank you.

removing old mysql client doesn’t have any impact of running mysql server, however you need to check if there are any running perl/python/shell script using mysql connection have any dependencies on shared or compact RPMs. For example perl-DBD-MySQL rpm have dependencies on mysql client libraries.
