What's the upgrade practices from Fine3 to Hammer3?

Whats the procedure to follow for upgrading fine3 to hammer3 version? can some one help with steps involved if you have done already.

I am not aware of any specific upgrade steps in upstream ManageIQ (There is documentation for CloudForms though)

However setting up a new appliance > dump the database on the old appliance > import database on the new appliance, apparently works most of the time. (disclaimer: I haven’t done it myself)


You need to use an new Hammer3 appliance and import an backup from your old Fine3.

You can refer to this post :

It worked fine for me when I wanted to upgrade from Gaprindashvili to Hammer. An important part is to copy the key from the old appliance, otherwise password and encrypted fields couldn’t be decrypted correctly.
