Description Andrew Dahms 2017-07-03 20:15:41 EDT
The storage requirements for CloudForms 5.8 have changed slightly, and users must perform some steps before upgrading their appliances to the latest version to ensure sufficient space is available on the appliance. This issue only affects migrated appliances, and will not be present on appliances from 4.5.1 and above.

The steps for resizing the disk space must be added to the migration after users stop the main services, and before they upgrade to 4.5.

Hi Dayle,

Tried and tested, all looks good to me.

Comment 7 Dayle Parker 2017-07-04 20:41:23 EDT
A new section outlining the steps to resize the disk partitions before migration has been added to the 4.5 migration guide:


For migrating from 4.2 to 4.5, see "1.4. Resizing the Disk Space".

For migrating from 4.1 to 4.5, see "2.4. Resizing the Disk Space".
