9.5. Upgrading the Manager from 4.1 to 4.2
Upgrade the Red Hat Virtualization Manager from 4.1 to 4.2.
If the upgrade fails, the
engine-setup command attempts to roll your Red Hat Virtualization Manager installation back to its previous state. For this reason, the previous version’s repositories must not be removed until after the upgrade is complete. If the upgrade fails, detailed instructions display that explain how to restore your installation.
- Log in to the Manager machine.
Enable the Red Hat Virtualization 4.2 repositories:
# subscription-manager repos \ --enable=rhel-7-server-rhv-4.2-manager-rpms \ --enable=rhel-7-server-rhv-4-manager-tools-rpms \ --enable=jb-eap-7-for-rhel-7-server-rpms \ --enable=rhel-7-server-ansible-2.9-rpms
All other repositories remain the same across Red Hat Virtualization releases.
Update the setup packages:
# yum update ovirt\*setup\* rh\*vm-setup-plugins

Disable the Red Hat Virtualization 4.1 repositories to ensure the system does not use any 4.1 packages:
# subscription-manager repos \ --disable=rhel-7-server-rhv-4.1-rpms \ --disable=rhel-7-server-rhv-4.1-manager-rpms \ --disable=rhel-7-server-rhv-4-tools-rpms \ --disable=jb-eap-7.0-for-rhel-7-server-rpms \ --disable=jb-eap-7.1-for-rhel-7-server-rpms

# yum updateImportant
If any kernel packages were updated, reboot the machine to complete the upgrade.
You must now update the hosts before you can update the cluster and data center compatibility versions.
