Subject Re: [VOTE][ACS44]Apache CloudStack 4.4.1 RC 3 in branch 4.4-RC20141014T2316
Date Fri, 17 Oct 2014 12:43:11 GMT
Hi Rohit,

I'm aware of this behavior, it start with 4.3.0, if you upgrade to 4.3.0 or
4.3.1 without having the new systemvm prior the upgrade, the db upgrade
will fail. which is why upgrading from 4.2.x to 4.4.1 require 2 new
systemvm to be install prior the upgrade.

Further more, if you have multiple hypervisor type, let say you have
XenServer and KVM clusters but forced system vm to run on xenserver only.
by default you might only install the new sysvmtemplate for xenserver, but,
 if you upgrade without having install the kvm systemvm version the db
upgrade will fail.

I think their is jira issue around this already.
