RHV-H host upgrade reports success but in fact failed and now says it's up to date

Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • A RHV-H host upgrade might report success, but after the reboot, it's still running the old version.
  • The host now "thinks" it's running the new version, and so upgrading from the RHVM GUI is longer possible.
  • An upgrade may also fail with a failure message but not offer any reason for the failure.


  • Red Hat Virtualization Hypervisor (RHV-H) 4.x
