Live upgrade from RHEL 5.7 to RHEL 6.2
 
Hi all,

I have just completed a live upgrade from RHEL 5.7 to RHEL 6.2. My
system seemed to boot up fine, watching the console output. I cannot,
however, access the console through the mouse or keyboard. I can ssh in
and looking at /var/log/messages, it seems as though it recognized the
keyboard and mouse:

Red Hat does not support in-place upgrades between any major versions of
Red Hat Enterprise
Linux. A major version is denoted by a whole number version change. For
example, Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 are both major versions
of Red Hat Enterprise
Linux.
In-place upgrades across major releases do not preserve all system
settings, services or custom
configurations. Consequently, Red Hat strongly recommends fresh
installations when upgrading
from one major version to another.

Ges

Thanks for your response. I understood when I started this experiment that
RedHat does not support in place upgrades. I am updating a cluster with a
complicated and difficult to replicate Cluster Manager from SGI. They
recommended the upgrade in place. I was just looking for some
troubleshooting advice on the mouse/keyboard issue.

Well... except fedora has been doing that for some time, and I expect it
to show up in RHEL within a couple of years (which is why we've started
partitioning new systems with 500M or 1G of /boot, instead of 100M).


Thanks for your response. I understood when I started this experiment that
RedHat does not support in place upgrades. I am updating a cluster with a
complicated and difficult to replicate Cluster Manager from SGI. They
recommended the upgrade in place. I was just looking for some
troubleshooting advice on the mouse/keyboard issue.

Oy. I've been doing a good number of upgrades in place, sorta. I take a
similar box that's already built, then create /boot/new and /new, rsync
-HPavxz everything except a few things over, make sure to copy over some
things - ifcfg-eth*, /etc/ssh/ssh_host*, etc, and edit
/etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistant-net.rules - then invoke zsh,
files/zmodload (? I'm not at work yet, so I don't have my checklist to
refer to), then mkdir /old /boot/old, go over and move * old, then
lost+found, then old/new/*, sync, and reboot. Some times, before I do
that, I'll rebuild the initrd, if the machine is different than the source.


This way, if necessary, I can go back, and I've got everything still in
place to refer to or copy.


For your specific problem, not sure what to say. Have you tried pulling
the keyboard and mouse out, waiting 20 sec, and plugging them back in,
to see if it would wake up?


Oh, one more question: are you running at runlevel 3 or 5?

I did find out that hal was not running, so I started it, unplugged the
keyboard and mouse again and plugged them back in to no avail. However, I
noticed that even though hal is now running, not all of the same services
are running on this system as on a similar system still at 5.7.

Live upgrade from RHEL 5.7 to RHEL 6.2
 
Christina,

Good to see another NOAA employee using linux. Did you try switching
terminals? hold down ctrl and alt and then hit F1. See if you can type
in there with just a console, not any x junk for starters.

Live upgrade from RHEL 5.7 to RHEL 6.2
 
Do you see the login banner at the console after the boot messages? Has
the system forked the /sbin/mingetty processes? One thing that comes to
mind with RHEL 6 is the upstart module. In RHEL 6 this replaced the
traditional SysVInit system. So, I suggest you take a look via the
network login to:


1)ACTIVE_CONSOLES directive in /etc/sysconfig/init.
2)/etc/init/prefdm.conf
3)/etc/init/tty.conf

Best regards,

AH! The light begins to dawn, possibly. Have you looked at
/etc/X11/xorg.conf?

No, I do see a graphical login window, but no banner.

Has the system forked the /sbin/mingetty processes?
