We've been running FDS beta in production for a while now.
I'd like to upgrade to 1.0 and then get current, especially because after the last
reboot, the admin-serv won't run anymore.
What's the problem? Note that ns-slapd must be up and running and
accepting connections before admin-serv will start.
The only upgrade instructions that I've been able to find are at
the bottom of the 1.0 Release Notes:
Unfortunately, rpm -U (rpm upgrade install) is not supported. You must perform a
migration from the old version. Steps:
1. Backup your data, using the console or the db2bak command line (or Export to
2. Make a copy of your server configuration - the slapd-instance/config/dse.ldif
3. Backup your key/cert/module information - the /opt/fedora-ds/alias .db files
(you can ignore the .so file)
4. Uninstall the previous version (e.g. rpm -e fedora-ds)
5. Install the new version (e.g. rpm -ivh fedora-ds-1.0-2.platform.i386.opt.rpm)
6. Add back your configuration to the new instance e.g. do a diff between your
saved dse.ldif and the new one
7. Add back your saved key/cert/module .db files to /opt/fedora-ds/alias
8. Restore your saved data (or import from LDIF)
These notes aren't enough detail for me to get the job done. Is there a detailed
procedure somewhere or can one of you good people help me? I've looked through the
mailing list archives, FDS docs, RHDS docs, and googled. I'd like something like
rpm -e fedora-ds
Specific things in the upgrade steps from the release notes that I don't feel good
Step 1 - I don't know how to do that, but I think I might have done it correctly.
Yes, you are correct.
Step 4 - after rpm -e, it says some files may not have been removed
and to remove them manually. Do you do rm -Rf /opt/fedora-ds?
Step 6 - I don't know how to do that
diff -U 8 dse.ldif.saved config/dse.ldif > diffs
# where dse.ldif.saved is the one you saved in step 2 above
# now, take a look at the file diffs, and edit your config/dse.ldif with
any pertinent changes in diffs
Step 8 - I don't know how to do that
Thanks in advance!
