8.4. Upgrading the Manager from 4.2 to 4.3
You need to be logged into the machine that you are upgrading.
If the upgrade fails, the
engine-setup command attempts to restore your Red Hat Virtualization Manager installation to its previous state. For this reason, do not remove the previous version’s repositories until after the upgrade is complete. If the upgrade fails, the
engine-setup script explains how to restore your installation.
Enable the Red Hat Virtualization 4.3 repositories:
# subscription-manager repos \ --enable=rhel-7-server-rhv-4.3-manager-rpms \ --enable=jb-eap-7.2-for-rhel-7-server-rpms
All other repositories remain the same across Red Hat Virtualization releases.
Update the setup packages:
# yum update ovirt\*setup\* rh\*vm-setup-plugins
engine-setupand follow the prompts to upgrade the Red Hat Virtualization Manager:
When the script completes successfully, the following message appears:

Update the base operating system:
# yum updateImportant
If any kernel packages were updated, reboot the machine to complete the upgrade.
The Manager is now upgraded to version 4.3.
