Issues with virt-who after upgrade
Last modified: 2017-12-19 16:18:35 EST
A consultant encountered some issues when he was working with a customer to upgrade their environment from 6.0 to 6.1. For their virtual instances, they had some issues when upgrading virt-who:
* There is no virt-who upgrade information.
* How does virt-who handle passwords with special characters during upgrade?
* If hypervisor UUIDs are converted to hostnames, Satellite treats them as new hypervisors and it requires that any subscriptions be reassigned and old entries to be deleted manually.
--> Is changing from a UUID to a hostname/FQDN as the identifier even supported?
Somewhat related bug:
Assigning to Russell for review.
Russell - the Virtual Instances Guide since gained a note about changing from UUID to host name, and as per our conversation on IRC, it looks like the main work now is to call out that virt-who is an RPM upgrade that doesn't really require any special steps in the Upgrade Guide.
