Upgrading Oracle VM Server With Multipath San Boot Device (Doc ID 1589337.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 04, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle VM - Version 3.0.1 to 3.1.1 [Release OVM30 to OVM31]
Linux x86-64

Goal

It is not possible to upgrade Oracle VM Server from Release 3.0.3 or 3.1.1 to Release 3.2 using the CD or a YUM repository in a multipath boot from SAN environment as it is not supported. If this type of upgrade is attempted the Oracle VM Server panics after a reboot. You can, however, upgrade Oracle VM Server using a YUM repository in a single path (no multipath) boot from SAN environment.

Note: This won't affect if you are upgrading to maintenance releases from 3.2.x version to 3.2.x versions.
