What's the appropriate upgrade path from 220.127.116.11 to 18.104.22.168?
The release notes say to use mwg-switch-repo, but that doesn't exist until 7.3.Message was edited by: btlyric on 12/20/13 5:15:46 PM CST
I havent been able to test this yet, but you can still use the 7.3 yumconf package, once installed, you will have the mwg-dist-upgrade and mwg-switch-repo commands available
yum install yumconf-7.3-mwg
mwg-dist-upgrade <version number>
I'll give it a shot on one my VM's and report back.
After running 'yum install yumconf-7.3-mwg' the 'mwg-dist-upgrade' command was available, but 'mwg-switch-repo' was not.
In any case you should run the mwg-dist-upgrade anyways.
Here is an example:

yum install yumconf-7.3-mwg worked
mwg-dist-upgrade 22.214.171.124 wasn't as successful
Towards the end of the process, this was reported:

Repository configuration has been updated.
Now run "yum upgrade" to perform the actual upgrade.
Ran yum upgrade
Things seemed to go well, but post-upgrade I was no longer able to sudo.
Logged in via GUI -- at least one screen said 7.3.2.
Given the cumulative issues, despite the amount of pain it's going to cause, I'm now leaning toward doing a clean install of 7.4 for all of our MWG systems.
