Description Jiri Belka 2017-07-04 05:07:06 EDT
Description of problem:

https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_virtualization/4.1/html/upgrade_guide/chap-upgrading_to_red_hat_virtualization_4.1#Red_Hat_Virtualization_4.1_Upgrade_Considerations states:

"Upgrading to version 4.1 can only be performed from version 4.0

    To upgrade a version of Red Hat Virtualization earlier than 4.0 to Red Hat Virtualization 4.1, you must sequentially upgrade to later versions of Red Hat Virtualization before upgrading to the latest version. For example, if you are using Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.6, you must upgrade to the latest minor version of Red Hat Virtualization 4.0 before you can upgrade to Red Hat Virtualization 4.1. See the Upgrade Guide for Red Hat Virtualization 4.0 for instructions to upgrade to the latest 4.0 minor version.
    The data center and cluster compatibility version must be at version 4.0 before performing the upgrade."

The whole above section is incorrect, it seems like copy from 4.0.

Hi Jiri,

What do you suggest that we change this to? My understanding is that this note is correct; we only support upgrading to 4.1 from 4.0, not from 3.6 or earlier. Is this no longer the case?
Comment 2 Yaniv Lavi 2017-07-10 10:53:27 EDT
The manager update needs to be stepped (example 3.6->4.0->4.1).
The hosts are not stepped (3.6->4.1). You need to upgrade to latest host from the channel.

In a 4.1 manager, you can still have 3.6 and 4.0 clusters and this is not an issue.

This is urgent, please fix.

Assigning to Byron for review.

Byron, see Yaniv's comment 2. We just need to update the wording slightly to capture that.

Moving to ON_QA.
