5.5 Finishing the Upgrade

After a successful configuration, YaST shows the Installation Completed page.

  1. Deselect Clone This System for AutoYaST. Cloning is selected by default.

    This increases the speed of finishing the installation update.

    AutoYaST is a system for automatically installing one or more SUSE Linux Enterprise systems without user intervention. Although you can create a profile from a system that has been upgraded, it does not work to upgrade a similar system.

  2. Finish the upgrade by clicking Finish on the Installation Completed page.

  3. If you have upgraded a server that has NSS pools and volumes on the system device (the device that contains the root (/), /boot, and swap partitions), you must do the following:

    1. Verify that the /etc/fstab file is correct. For example, make sure that the path to /boot is complete; that is /dev/evms/sda1 (or hda1) and not just /dev/evms. If the path to the /boot partition is incomplete or doesn’t contain /evms, change it and save the fstab file.

    2. Open a terminal and run the following command to ensure that the initrd file is correctly created:

      mkinitrd -f evms

    3. Reboot the server before continuing with Verifying That the Upgrade Was Successful.

      A script runs automatically during the OES 2 SP3 upgrade to install and enable boot.evms.

      These changes are applied when you reboot your system after the upgrade is completed. Make sure that you reboot after the upgrade and before you do anything that would alter the changes made in this step.

  4. After the server completes the upgrade, continue with Verifying That the Upgrade Was Successful.
