Subject: RE: Volunteers to Complete the 4.2 Release Notes

Hi,

Here are some of the steps which are missing from the release notes,

1. Before upgrading from any version to 4.2 we need to register the new 4.2 systemvm templates
.
    This step is there in section 3.3 i.e for upgrade from 2.2.14 to 4.2, but it is missing
in section 3.1 and 3.2 .

2. Section 3.1 

    Step 3&4 : it should be cloudstack-management and cloudstack-usage as the naming conventions
have been changed from 4.1 onwards.

    Step 6 : The cloudstack 4.2 repo has not been published yet, currently at http://cloudstack.apt-get.eu/
the repo is available only for 4.0.x and 4.1.x
                     What Indira pointed to, needs to be removed, step 6.g) and 6.h) and step
8 also need to be removed
                    In step 6.f) It should be service cloudstack-agent  stop
   
    Step 9.b) : It should be sudo yum upgrade cloudstack-client

    Step 9.c) : it should be sudo yum upgrade cloudstack-agent   and the following line is
not required [[" During the installation of cloudstack-agent, the RPM will copy your agent.properties,log4j-cloud.xml,
and environment.properties from /etc/cloud/agent to /etc/cloudstack/agent" ]]

   Step 9.d.ii) : it should be sudo yum upgrade cloudstack-usage

  
3. Section 3.2

    Step 1.e) :  The URL of the vmware systemvm template is wrong. It should be http://download.cloud.com/templates/4.2/systemvmtemplate-4.2-vh7.ova
. 
                           The OSType should be [[Debian GNU/Linux 7.0 (32-bit) (or the highestDebian
release number available in the dropdown)]]
	Similarly, add templates for xenserver and kvm also.
    
    Step 7 : Delete this step, it's not needed. 

   Step 16 : It should be cloudstack-sysvmadm

4. Section 3.3

     Step 4.d) : For all the newly registered templates, make the OStype as [[Debian GNU/Linux
7.0 (32-bit) (or the highest Debian release number available in the dropdown)]]
    
     Step 13.c) :  It should be /etc/cloudstack/management/components.xml

     Step 15.c) : It should be /etc/cloudstack/management/db.properties

     Step 20 :  Remove this step, it's not needed
   
     Step 21.e) : It should be /etc/cloudstack/agent/agent.properties

    Step 23.a) :  It should be cloudstack-sysvmadm

5. In addition to all this,  If we are using KVM hosts as rhel6.0/6.1 then these extra steps
need to be documented for each section, 3.2 and 3.3

(KVM on RHEL 6.0/6.1 only) If your existing CloudStack deployment includes one or more clusters
of KVM hosts running RHEL 6.0 or RHEL 6.1, you must first upgrade the operating system version
on those hosts before upgrading CloudStack itself.
The first order of business will be to change the yum repository for each system with CloudStack
packages. This means all management servers, and any hosts that have the KVM agent. (No changes
should be necessary for hosts that are running VMware or Xen.) Start by opening /etc/yum.repos.d/cloudstack.repo
on any systems that have CloudStack packages installed.

[upgrade]
name=rhel63
baseurl=url-of-your-rhel6.3-repo
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0
[apache CloudStack]
name= Apache CloudStack
baseurl= http://cloudstack.apt-get.eu/rhel/4.0/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0

If you are using the community provided package repository, change the baseurl to http://
cloudstack.apt-get.eu/rhel/4.2/

If you're using your own package repository, change this line to read as appropriate for your
4.2.0 repository.

b. Now that you have the repository configured c. Upgrade the host operating system from RHEL
6.0 to 6.3:
yum upgrade
      
6.  Also, in all the sections 3.2 and 3.3 , add this step for agent upgrades 

After running this ,
Edit /etc/cloudstack/agent/agent.properties to change the resource parameter from com.cloud.agent.resource.computing.LibvirtComputingResource
to com.cloud.hypervisor.kvm.resource.LibvirtComputingResource

We need to run the following too,

Upgrade all the existing bridge names to new bridge names by running this script:

# cloudstack-agent-upgrade

. Install a libvirt hook with the following commands:
# mkdir /etc/libvirt/hooks
# cp /usr/share/cloudstack-agent/lib/libvirtqemuhook /etc/libvirt/hooks/qemu # chmod +x /etc/libvirt/hooks/qemu

. Restart libvirtd.
# service libvirtd restart

. Start the agent.
# service cloudstack-agent start

 Note : This step will be added after step 13.d in section 3.2 and 21.e in section 3.3

7.  We need to add a section for 4.0.x to 4.2 upgrades.

Thanks and regards,
Abhinav

I am unable to download the ReleaseNotes attachment from the bug at this time. I will get
back with more comments once I am able to get to it. Few comments in-line

[Animesh>] Yes this is left over and is not applicable for this upgrade and will have to
be cleaned up

[Animesh>] Yes this is left over and is not applicable for this upgrade and will have to
be cleaned up
