Description James W. Mills 2014-08-13 17:06:33 UTC
Description of problem:

Many customers are doing "double upgrades" from 3.2 to 3.4.  In this process, they are not noticing/following the instructions when upgrading from 3.2/3.3 that upgrade the rhevm-dwh configuration.

When they move to 3.4 and they are forced to take rhevm-dwh into consideration, the engine-setup process fails because it cannot understand how to access the ovirt_engine_history database.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade rhevm and rhevm-dwh to 3.3
2. Do *not* run rhevm-dwh-setup
3. Upgrade rhevm and rhevm-dwh to 3.4
4. Run engine-setup

Actual results:

engine-setup fails because it cannot access the dwh database

Expected results:

The upgrade process can move from a 3.2 configuration to a 3.4 configuration.

Additional info:

Fixing this situation is quite painful.  Multiple downgrades of rhevm-dwh are required, as well as manual changes to the engine database to "trick" dwh into upgrading its DB schema.  Taken in conjunction with reports, it is a very involved process.

Comment 1 James W. Mills 2014-08-13 17:08:05 UTC
Note that the manual database changes are only required if engine-setup was run prior to upgrading rhevm-dwhd, which reslults in a fully functional 3.4 engine database, with an updated minimumETL variable.

Please see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1111749#c19 for a workaround.

The fix in bug #1123751 which will be included in 3.4.2 will make engine-setup refuse to upgrade the engine to 3.4 if dwh/reports 3.2 are found. Users that already upgraded the engine to 3.4.{0,1} will have to use the above workaround. If they still have engine 3.3 they'll simply have to upgrade dwh and reports to 3.3 too before upgrading the engine to 3.4.
