Satellite/Spacewalk upgrade need notes on KS Partitioning change
Last modified: 2016-07-03 20:55:14 EDT
As of https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=593896 we moved the Kickstart Partitioning section of a KS profile from it being commands to a blob in rhnKsData.
To massage the existing data an upgrade script http://git.fedorahosted.org/git/?p=spacewalk.git;a=blob_plain;f=schema/spacewalk/upgrade/spacewalk-schema-1.1-to-spacewalk-schema-1.2/041-update_kickstart_partitions.py was created. We need to add this to be run to the upgrade notes
We also need to ask the user to backup and delete existing kickstart files in /var/lib/rhn/kickstart/wizard ..
This got ported to the sql stored procs.. So this is no longer necessary.. Just make sure that when we upgrade the partition commands look ok..
Actually, I'd rather keep this in ASSIGNED for now, since the part about
deleting /var/lib/rhn/kickstart/wizard/* is still not part of Sat5.4 upgrades.
Instructions to delete /var/lib/rhn/kickstart/wizard/* have been added
to preparations.txt document (part of rhn-upgrade package).
satellite.git master: 01457e4728111b2c672faf7f06a1e9565243701c
Correction in instructions to delete kickstart files before upgrade:
satellite.git master: c738f34f5e4c651586bbe6d135432c0017a0f8eb
11. Remove Satellite cache and kickstart files:
Run as root:
rm -fr /var/cache/rhn/*
[ -d /var/lib/rhn/kickstarts/wizard ] && rm -f /var/lib/rhn/kickstarts/wizard/*
This is done to ensure cache and kickstart files are recreated with newer
structure after the Satellite upgrade is complete.
The 5.4.0 RHN Satellite and RHN Proxy release has occurred. This issue has been resolved with this release.
