Upgrade Option with kickstart
 
Hi All,
I am bit confusion in work flow of system upgrade with kickstart and it*failed*to upgrade the system with kickstart config file.*
It throw error message "No valid upgrade partition" at the time of upgrade, this error means that Installer not able to find "rootParts" I am not sure why it is failed get root parts,*


Can someone please help me to understand how upgrade works with kickstart config file.*

Just for update, I have fixed this upgrade issue in*different*way, I am not sure is this good way but it works for me :)


[Fix]
I am asking user to choose for upgrade or reinstall system, if user select the upgrade option then i am setting.
if upgrade:* * * *opts.ksfile = False*


This will be set before creating object of a Install class,instClass = getInstClass(opts)

and rest will be fine .... :)
[/Fix]



This will work without an issue, But not sure is this correct way to do, Please help me to correct this
*




Thanks for the help*V!jay.

What operating system(s) do you have installed that you want to upgrade,
and what are you trying to upgrade to?

Hi Chris,
Sorry that I missed to mention in*previous*mail, I am using customized Cent OS 5.5,*
Yes I have installed OS before upgrading :) and i am trying to upgrade with new centos that I built in house.


I have built new cent OS with updated packages from centos tree and I am using anaconda version is anaconda-11.1.2.209



Thanks for the help

V!jay
