Migrating RH7.3 to RH9


Hi:

i'd like to get feedback about people who has migrated from RedHat 7.3 to RedHat 9.0.
Problems, inconveniences,...success, whatever.

I am planning to have this upgrade done on a Dell Poweredge 2650 server with RAID5.

Thanks in advance.

Well i'm now on a rh9 and i come from rh 7.2.
I think that the better way of no having headaches is to reinstall the system because during the update can be a lot of strange changes and if you have downloaded/instaled or configured a lot all can get into a mess. This is what i got updating from rh7.2 to rh8.

In the side of the content you will see a speedup in the x-windows, a compiler with better optimizations for each processor and a lot of needed up to date libraries to build latest apps.

Also take in mind that since rh8 rh uses unicode utf-8 conding by default and that means errors in the display for applications not supporting it.

I hope this will be usefull to you.

the problem is I can't reinstall from scratch as there's lot of work from developers inside there, so I need the upgrade.

Oh that makes it hard. Whatever you do don't forget to backup the data ....

But can't be the work moved two another drive or partition?
Maybe are instaled apps, scripts, beta testing ...

I'm using RAID5 with three SCSI disks, and I've got a complete BEA WebLogic development installation with LOTS of servers running,...., configured with Samba & CVS access which I don't wanna mess up after so much efforts.

There's 12 developers using it from 08am to 20h, so I don't want to
spent time with reinstalling

BUT as these WebLogic thing grows inside the server (more projects, more developers), process threads are getting unmanageable. (I DO really need NPTL)

I mean, I'm not reinstalling all of this again :-) !!!

Thanks anyway.
