Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 459330
No way of completing upgrade via preupgrade remotely (via ssh)
Last modified: 2008-10-24 10:51:11 EDT
Description of problem:
This was originally reoprted as bug #444979 and splitted:
Preupgrade should consider the case in which the upgrade is done *remotely*,
via ssh (really, this is the *main* reason for which one attempts to upgrade a
system via yum and not via bootable media).
So preupgrade will need a way to complete the upgrade *without human
intervention after reboot*. The scenario is:
- the administrator logs remotely, as root, to the (functional) system to be
upgraded via "ssh -X system.example.com"
- the administrator invokes preupgrade
- the system reboots
- the upgrade should be completed without user intervention
There is no way to perform upgrades via preupgrade *remotely*, via ssh, without local user intervention (console).
Preupgrade should provide a way to complete upgrades remotely (via ssh only).
