Currently, there is no single document describing supported
(which means: working ) upgrade scenarios.
There are multiple documents which, together, do that, however.
This documents the move from 3.2 on F18 to 3.3 on F19:
The same principle applies for a move from CentOS 6.4/oVirt 3.2 to
CentOS 6.5/oVirt 3.3 (except replace fedup with the CentOS equivalent,
which I don't know).
This one concentrates on updating the database in-place:
As far as I know, currently it is supported to upgrade
from x.y.z to x.y.z+1 and from x.y.z to x.y+1.z
but not from x.y-1.z to x.y+1.z directly.
Both should be possible. "supported" is a tricky word to use here
(because "support" means something special for RHEV).
maybe this should be put together in a wiki page at least.
also it would be cool to know how long a single "release"
would be supported.
Again, support is a tricky word. We do not maintain older oVirt 3.x
releases when the new one comes out, although we typically make a bug
fix release for the previous version when the latest version comes out.
In this context I would define a release as a version
bump from x.y.z to x.y+1.z or to x+1.y.z
a bump in z would be a bugfix release.
The question is, how long will we get bugfix releases
for a given version?
They stop, as I understand it, when we move to the next minor version.
(that is, y to y+1). We have not had a major release since my time in
oVirt, so I don't know if we will continue bug fix releases on the
stable branch when there is a major version upgrade.
