I'm afraid this won't work, we changed so many things in the packaging/setup
between 3.0 and 3.1
Has anyone else tested this? I just tried it on a test rig of F16
running 3.0, upgrading to 3.1 beta on F17. All the steps completed
except that I had to remove ovirt-engine-jbossas, which conflicted
the new, from Fedora, jboss-as, before installing ovirt-engine 3.1.
After engine-upgrade completed, I wasn't able to access the engine.
Jboss-as was stopped, as was httpd. Starting them up didn't make the
engine accessible, though. I just got the default fedora pages for
and for Apache.
On my own oVirt setup, I moved from 3.0 to 3.1 by moving my VMs and
templates to my export domain, detaching my export and iso domains,
installing 3.1 from scratch, before importing my iso and export
and ferrying my VMs and templates over to my new data domain.
What's the most sane upgrade advice we can offer to oVirt 3.0 users?
the "sane" upgrade path (nothing is sane in Fedora 16 to Fedora 17 upgrade):
1. run engine-cleanup, do not drop DB
2. remove all ovirt-engine rpms (including the JBoss one)
- please not that this will remove the PKI, so you'll have to re-install your hosts
3. Do the fedora upgrade
4. install ovirt-engine rpms
5. run engine-setup
- Give same passwords to the DB/admin user
in this case, engine-setup should upgrade the db, and not install it.
we didn't tried this approach yet, so I'll appreciate any input.
