Be warned, my second attempt was not successful when doing a Fine-1-Beta2 to Fine-1 upgrade. See https://github.com/ManageIQ/manageiq/issues/15267

Hi,

If you want to migrate for a version to another, I think you should add:
bin/rake db:migrate
bin/rake evm:automate:reset

To ensure that you are using the latest changes.

Not sure, but doing bower update could be great too.

Thanks @LorkScorguar for the additional steps. As you can see I am not familiar with the big picture of miq using ruby rail MVC framework.

Thanks @tjyang for sharing…Is there anyway to upgrade from fine-4 to Gapri-3 ?

@anhht4,

The changes between the twos are so much, not sure the bin/update main script can handle it.
Also I personally do not have this need to try (Fine-4 to Gapri-3) upgrade path.
I always do a VMWare snapshot when doing miq upgrade.

Sorry, not an answer to your question.

Hi,
Actually I followed up this post for the migration but somehow the web is unavailable afterwards.
Anyway, Thanks for your hints :slight_smile:
BR,
