i am new in foreman community
i am just upgrade my katello in 3.18.5 version
is it possible to upgrade from 3.18 (the latest 3.x version) to a version 4.x ?
i tried to find documentation about that but i didn’t find something convincing.
very thanks a lot for your help and reply
I moved your post to the “Support” category, and adjusted the title a bit.
To your question, yes, this is possible, but I don’t have the docs at hand right now and hope someone from @katello can link them up for you (the procedure is a bit involved as you need to migrate from Pulp2 to Pulp3)
Once that’s complete, you’ll have to follow the Katello upgrade path: 3.18 > 4.0 > 4.1 > …etc, until you get current. The Katello 4.0 upgrade instructions are here: Upgrading and Updating Foreman server
Retrieve Pulp 2 to Pulp 3 migration statistics:
Migrated/Total RPMs: 0/210637
Migrated/Total errata: 0/168616
Migrated/Total repositories: 3/150
Estimated migration time based on yum content: 3 hours, 15 minutes
Note: ensure there is sufficient storage space for /var/lib/pulp/published to triple in size before starting the migration process.
Check the size of /var/lib/pulp/published with ‘du -sh /var/lib/pulp/published/’
Note: ensure there is sufficient storage space for postgresql.
You will need additional space for your postgresql database. The partition holding ‘/var/opt/rh/rh-postgresql12/lib/pgsql/data/’
will need additional free space equivalent to the size of your Mongo db database (/var/lib/mongodb/).
