Description Julie 2015-07-28 02:48:36 EDT
Currently in the upgrade to 3.5 section, we only tell users to run 'yum update'. However, due to yum version lock(check /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/versionlock.list), RHEV Manager-specific packages will not be updated. 'yum update rhevm-setup' also need to be run. 

For all other version upgrade topics, 'yum update' needs to be added in to make sure user updates the underlying OS as well.

Assigning to Tahlia for review.

Tahlia - there is a one-liner in an earlier procedure that says 'yum update rhevm-setup'. I suspect all we need to do is copy this over into the upgrade procedure near the existing 'yum update' step there.

This needs to be updated for both 3.5.z and 3.6 Beta.
