2. Reboot and login NGN
#imgbase check

Expected results:

Comment 1 Ryan Barry 2018-05-02 18:45:16 UTC
imgbased already logs detailed information in /tmp/imgbased.log or /var/log/imgbased.log, depending on the version.

Are you expecting this to appear in RHVM, or just the stderr in the logs?

'imgbase check' should not be creating LVs.

Comment 3 Yaning Wang 2018-06-04 10:01:18 UTC
Verify Steps:

from rhvh-4.1-0.20180126.0
upgrade to rhvh-4.2.3.1-0.20180531.0

Results:

upgrade failed due to no enough space

stderr be captured in `imgbased.log`
