Stuck when running preupg on OEL 6.10

User_LZXLU Member Posts: 1 Green Ribbon


I am trying to upgrade OEL 6.10 to OEL 7. I've tried running preupg tools for pre upgrade assessment. The tools stuck at 098/141 ...running  (Libraries with their soname bumped) . Has anybody encountered similar problem before. Thank you for any feedback.

    You might know that OL6 used upstart, while OL7 uses systemd.

    If you are doing anything complex with the init system, you might prefer a migration of your content to a new server install. You should also take a hard look at going to OL8, as OL7's end of support in 2024 is getting close.

    Any hardware used for OL6 is also old, prompting thought about a hardware upgrade.

    Otherwise, can you find the specific problematic library via some log? If you are not using it, perhaps you can remove the package.
