R80.10 -> R80.20/30 Management upgrade issues

Hi There,

I've tried various upgrade paths for my VM Management server (R80.10 take 462) to R80.20 or R80.30 without success. I've increased the disk space and extended existing space with lvm_manager - still no joys. Tried cli and cpuse and the errors are always about insufficient disk space. I seem to have a lot of space.

Tried migrate export and space issue persists. Tried snapshot and though system says I need 9gb for snapshot (and I have 33gb free), snapshot is unsuccessful.

What I am looking for is a process by which I can upgrade the server without CheckPoint snapshot or backup. I can use VM Snapshot as fallback in case I need to.

Hi Yishola,

Regarding the issue with the snapshot, what do you mean by "snapshot is unsuccessful"?
Does it give you an error?

Regards,
Dov

The snapshot wasn't completing because of space issues. But as can be seen, I have loads of space.

Thanks

Re: R80.10 -> R80.20/30 Management upgrade issues

Before upgrading my production machines to 80.30 I took backups of them and restored them into VM's using VMWare's Workstation product.

 

The first few builds I did, I did not create large enough disk volumes.  This was due to my workstation not having a ton of disk available.

I too experienced your issues later on (especially around the snapshot failures).  And using lvm_manager to extend the root volume would render the VM unbootable.  Every time.

In talking with TAC it was decided to just blow the system away and add more disk.  Which was frustrating.

Not apples-to-apples, I know.  But just wanted to note you're not alone with the snapshot issues when having plenty of disk space available and the upgrade not seeing it.

Thanks for that.

 

I think I'll just have to start from scratch - or wait to see whether R80.40 plays ball.

with the lvm manager reduce the Logs volume 10 GB and it worked, I could already do the update

Re: R80.10 -> R80.20/30 Management upgrade issues

To leverage the xfs filesystem (which has better performance), it's actually better to do a migrate export/import from R80.10 to a freshly installed VM with R80.30.

Re: R80.10 -> R80.20/30 Management upgrade issues

I started the exercise with a view to use migrate export/import.

./migrate export /tmp/gaia-r80-mgmt-2019-12-09.tgz

However the export fails each time with the following message:

Copying required files...
Execution finished with errors. See log file '/opt/CPshrd-R80/log/migrate-2019.12.09_12.32.06.log' for further details

Reading the log file doesn't particularly make any issues obvious, but I see the following lines (which still doesn't add up):

Best to engage with the TAC on this.
