According to QE's verify, it should not be a bug.

1. Checked above enviroment, an external etcd was installed on the master host.
# rpm -qa|grep etcd

 # cat /etc/origin/master/master-config.yaml |grep etcdClient -A 5
  ca: master.etcd-ca.crt
  certFile: master.etcd-client.crt
  keyFile: master.etcd-client.key
    - https://ip-172-31-47-154.x.x.x.x:2379

2. Checked installer.cfg.yml in attachment, which shows that the cluster used  embedded etcd because no etcd role specified in installer.cfg.yml file.

With this installer.cfg.yml file, run "atomic-openshift-installer -c /tmp/bug/installer.cfg.yml upgrade", a hosts file generated in the same directory.


When use external etcd, the data dir should be /var/lib/etcd/ and if use embedded etcd the data dir should be /var/lib/origin/. The error happened because it could not find /var/lib/origin/ when you specify a config file without etcd role.

So this issue should be caused by a wrong installer.cfg.yml file which is not fit with your worked cluster.

BTW, maybe you need not create installer.cfg.yml manually, if you install old version ocp with advanced install method, then you can continue upgrade work with hosts file with advanced way. If you install old cluster with quick install method, then you can find correct installer.cfg.yml file placed in /root/.config/openshift/.
Comment 3 Vikas Laad 2017-07-19 09:03:13 EDT
@liujia I am sorry I attached wrong file, I modified that file later and added etcd role. Upgrade still failed, by mistake I attached old config where role was missing. I still have the env, you can have a look. Attaching the latest config file.
Comment 4 Vikas Laad 2017-07-19 09:22:52 EDT
Please disregard comment #3, after adding etcd to roles list upgrade works fine.
