SUSE Manager 3.1


When performing a spacewalk-schema-upgrade the following error is seen:

Schema upgrade: [susemanager-schema-3.0.21-25.3.1] ->


Searching for upgrade path to: [susemanager-schema-3.1.9-2.3.1]

Searching for upgrade path to: [susemanager-schema-3.1.9]

Was not able to find upgrade path in directory [/etc/sysconfig/rhn/schema-upgrade]


A patch which will permanently fix this problem will be released shortly.

Currently the following workaround can be used:

1.cd /etc/sysconfig/rhn/schema-upgrade
2. mkdirsusemanager-schema-3.0.21-to-susemanager-schema-3.1.0/
