Product Enhancement Advisory
A new preupgrade-assistant-el5toel7-data package is now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.
Preupgrade Assistant is a set of scripts and plug-ins that can assess your
system before upgrading to the next major version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
It checks for removed packages, packages with partially incompatible
replacements, changes in libraries, users and groups, and various services. It
then produces a report which assists you in performing the upgrade itself by
outlining potential problem areas and offering suggestions about mitigating any
possible incompatibilities. In addition, Preupgrade Assistant helps you install
a new major release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux which is as similar as possible
to your previous system. It also provides post-upgrade scripts which will help
you finish migration after the installation of a newer Red Hat Enterprise Linux
The preupgrade-assistant-el5toel7-data package contains static data about
differences between a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7
system. This data is required by Preupgrade Assistant to produce a correct
report after system assessment.
This enhancement update adds the preupgrade-assistant-el5toel7-data package to
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. (BZ#1369885)
All users who require preupgrade-assistant-el5toel7-data are advised to install
this new package.
Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.
