I appologized if this has been asked/answered but the best result I found was the rfc post listed below.
We are currently running TFM 3.3.0 on CentOS 7. We have no plans to deploy Alma/Rocky/CentOS 8 as an OS which keeps us on the 3.3.x branch. We have started baselining Alma 9 but it doesn’t look like there are published packages yet (release notes + yum repo). Is this expected to change in 3.5? ( Foreman :: Manual + RFC - Enterprise Linux 8 and 9 Support ) Given that 3.5 is already in RC I completely understand it not being included as the scope could be quite large.
Given upgrades typically say to install from one version to the next what would kind of paths might be available once EL 9 support exists? Do we need to start considering a one off for our TFM install to step through the versions on the way to the EL 9 supported version? Can we just do a database backup + saved installer profile and restore on EL 9? I do realize this is not exactly a straight forward question and there are a lot of variables but appreciate any insights folks can share.
