Hi there,

I am trying to upgrade from chef 11.0.11 to 12 and I get the following error at the end of the upgrade:

Hi Simon,

The built in upgrade process only works with Chef Server 11.1 or
greater, so you need to upgrade from 11.0.11 to 11.1 or greater first,
then make the jump to 12.

It is possible to make the jump from version less than 11.1, but it’s
not currently supported and takes a lot of manual work. You can see what
it takes in this issue: https://github.com/chef/opscode-omnibus/issues/463

I’d recommend you upgrade first to 11.1 and then try again.

Thanks,

Mark Mzyk

Hi Mark,

Thanks for this, is there a link anywhere on how to upgrade on the older version?

I currently have chef-server-11.0.11-1.el6.x86_64.rpm and private-chef-11.3.0-1.el6.x86_64.rpm - I assume installing the rpm isn’t enough and there’s a process to upgrade?

Cheers,
Simon.

Simon,

The two rpms that you listed that are not compatible with each other.
chef-server-11.0.11 is the open source Chef server. private-chef-11.3.0
is the Enterprise Chef 11 server.
We make both available for download since we opened source all the
server code with Chef server 12, incase anyone needs these older versions.

Based on what you wrote before, I believe you have installed and are
running the chef-server-11.0.11 package. Just delete the
private-chef-11.3.0 rpm, you don’t need it.

To upgrade using the steps I recommended, download the latest open
source Chef server 11 package from here:
https://www.chef.io/download-open-source-chef-server-11/

That appears to be 11.1.6-1 at the time I write this. You should then
follow the upgrade steps that are here:
http://docs.chef.io/release/osc_11-1/upgrade_server_open_source.html

The tl;dr is that you’ll install the rpm and then run the upgrade
command, but read over the docs to ensure you understand what is
involved and we always recommend that you have a backup of your data
before doing any upgrade.

Once you’ve upgraded to 11.1.6, you’re ready to move to Chef server 12.
To do that, download the Chef server 12 rpm, which is named
chef-server-core-. You can download that from here:
https://downloads.chef.io/chef-server/

Latest release as I write this is 12.0.6.

Instructions then for upgrading to Chef server 12 from Chef server 11
can be found here:
https://docs.chef.io/upgrade_server.html#from-chef-server-osc

And if you need it, there is more detail on the upgrade process here:
https://docs.chef.io/upgrade_server_open_source_notes.html

And once again, I’ll recommend you have a backup of your data in case
something goes wrong during the upgrade, although we try very hard not
to lose any data or put you in an unrecoverable state during upgrade.

Hope that helps.

Mark Mzyk
