How to use the noop option to check for changes in Satellite config files during an upgrade.

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • The Satellite 6 upgrade script is based on Puppet, which means that any manual configuration changes will be overwritten to the installation defaults. You can use the --noop argument when you run the upgrade script to determine what changes would be applied when you perform the upgrade. This argument ensures that no actual changes are made.
  • Hiera users, in particular, can use this method to check in advance what changes will be made by running the upgrade script.
