Description of problem:
RHEL has multiple tools for performing in place upgrades, as well as conversions from RHEL derivitive distributions. We need to ensure that for troubleshooting purposes, sosreport is collecting the log files from this tooling, as well as the status file from /etc/, as defined in https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHELBU-1336
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Ideally, this change would be backported to sosreport in the following releases:
8.2, 8.3, 8.4, 8.5
Am I reading that correctly that the status files will be named `/etc/convert2rhel` and `/etc/leapp`? Or will it be something like `/etc/convert2rhel-$date` or similar?
Is there a full list of convert2rhel/leapp env vars that should be captured as well?
Also, I can see that in the documentation customers can specify an user and a password:
# convert2rhel --username <username> --password <password> --pool <pool_id>
Does this get recorded in the logs we already capture:
Or in the configuration files perhaps?
The file to newly collect is /etc/migration-results.
When to collect: when at least one of the packages is installed (convert2rhel, leapp, leapp-repository).
There are already these two plugins:
- leapp: https://github.com/sosreport/sos/pull/1753/files
- convert2rhel: https://github.com/sosreport/sos/pull/1915/files
It seems to me these two could be extended to gather this new file.

The username gets recorded in the /var/log/convert2rhel/convert2rhel.log, but not the password. Just asterisks are recorded instead.
One of the information recorded in the /etc/migration-results will be the command that has been executed but we'll hide the password there as well, e.g. "convert2rhel --username name --password *** --pool 123".
We'll need this sos change for
8.2 EUS (only leapp/leapp-repository)
9.0 (only leapp/leapp-repository)
CentOS Stream 9 (only leapp/leapp-repository)
I'll make sure BZs for the other RHELs are created or updated.
To Jake from #c1:
No need to capture env vars. The env vars we need to know about are going to be recorded in the /etc/migration-results itself.
hOK, after a chat with mbocek, the final agreement is:
On Red Hat distros (or at least on RHEL+CentOS), we should newly collect /etc/migration-results file. Independently on leapp / convert2rhel packages, hence in a new plugin.
Upstream https://github.com/sosreport/sos/pull/2627 raised, we will try to squeeze to 8.5/9.0beta at "five after 12" time (as it is a tiny change with no regression).
Granting zstream+ for 8.2.z and 8.4.z, as agreed on Tue CEE supportability SST call. This is required to properly clone the BZ.
