I installed Foreman 1.16 on a CentOS 7 (clean, minimal install) virtual machine.
I just followed the directions in the quick start guide, so this is a default installation (I’ve just run
foreman-installer without any parameters)
I keep the box up to date running
yum upgrade periodically.
Recently, the Puppet Server package was updated by this procedure, and three files were installed as <config file>.rpmnew, so I’ll have to merge its contents with the original ones.
Those files were created/configured during the Foreman installation, I never changed them by hand.
So, my questions are:
- Is it safe to update all the packages in the box running
- If that’s the case, what should I do when there are changes in the configuration files managed by Foreman? Should I replace the original files with the new ones (*.rpmnew) and execute again
- Do the upgrade instructions (section 3.6 in the docs) apply to minor versions as well (1.16 to 1.16.1)? Can I just run
Please, excuse my English. It is not my native language.
Thank you in advance.
PS - To the Foreman staff: a very big THANK YOU for this great piece of software.
