Last updated on OCTOBER 04, 2023

Applies to:

Linux OS - Version Oracle Linux 7.9 with Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel [5.4.17] and later
Linux x86-64


Global maintenance is not properly detected by engine-setup even though the engine VM shows in global maintenance mode.

The engine setup fails as follows:

[ INFO ] Stage: Setup validation
During execution engine service will be stopped (OK, Cancel) [OK]: OK
[ ERROR ] It seems that you are running your engine inside of the hosted-engine VM and are not in "Global Maintenance" mode.
In that case you should put the system into the "Global Maintenance" mode before running engine-setup, or the hosted-engine HA agent might kill the machine, which might corrupt your data.
