Broken 7.2.0 to 7.2.z upgrade - flawed version comparison
Last modified: 2016-11-04 01:42:28 EDT
This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:
Obviously it was upgrade to never version.
2015-12-09T15:21:02Z DEBUG The ipa-server-upgrade command failed, exception: ScriptError: ("Unable to execute IPA upgrade: data are in newer version than IPA (data version '4.2.0-15.el7', IPA version '4.2.0-15.el7_2.3')", 1)
2015-12-09T15:21:02Z ERROR ("Unable to execute IPA upgrade: data are in newer version than IPA (data version '4.2.0-15.el7', IPA version '4.2.0-15.el7_2.3')", 1)
"/var/log/ipaupgrade.log" 54696L, 5389464C
The bug manifests in 7.2.0 (ipa-4.2.0-15.el7) to 7.2.z (4.2.0-15.el7_2.3) upgrade. The upgrade does not happen as the version check is flawed and does not detect 7.2.z version as the new one.
The workaround is to run
# ipa-server-upgrade --skip-version-check
after the RPM upgrade and start the service again.

Not sure why the naming format; perhaps specfile got botched? Maybe it should be version 4.2.3.el7 instead of 4.2.0-15.el7_2.3?

This is bug in checking version method, 4.2.0-15.el7_2.3 version is okay.
the upstream patch causes https://fedorahosted.org/freeipa/ticket/5572 Different approach needs to be used.
Ticket 5572 fixed upstream:
IPA server version: ipa-server-4.4.0-3.el7.x86_64
Verified the bug on the basis of following steps:
1. Verified that no error message is observed during upgrade of IPA server.
2. Verified the bug for upgrade paths:
a) 7.2(GA) to 7.3
b) 7.2.z to 7.3 (In my case upgrade from 7.2up6)
Thus on the basis of above observations marking the status of bug to "VERIFIED".
