Hyper-V Upgrade Issues

[Edit by xrobau: Moved this into a new thread, it had nothing to do with the old one]

I just ran across this thread I know it’s old.

We’ve leveraged Hyper-V at a number of customers to eliminate a dedicated hardware appliance that has to be taken care of. We do not have any of the issues others are reporting with Hyper-V. That said, none of our systems have more than 30 extensions - so we well might hit problems as we grow, hope not. We’ve also been able to successfully run other network appliances under Hyper-v without too much grief.

What was an unpleasant surprise was when we went to upgrade from 6.12.65-32 to 10.13.66. We are unable to boot after the upgrade, had to restore back to a snapshot. This has happened on two systems and I’ve got three more that also need the upgrade.

The FreePBX distro is supposed to be based on CentOS 6.5 or 6.6 - we have not had any issues upgrading our Centos 6.5 web servers to CentOS 6.6 under Hyper-V, so I’m trying to figure out what’s different about the FreePBX distro that causes this.

Any ideas?

There is no difference. Sorry.

What error are you having when booting?

Rob,

By the time I noticed your reponse I had restored to 6.12.65 and gave up for the time being.

I just tried the upgrade again after downloading the “upgrade-10.13.66-1.sh” script from this page:
http://wiki.freepbx.org/display/PPS/FreePBX-Distro-6.12.65

Looks like I’ve got the same problem after I rebooted. Here’s a screen shot right after the update:

I’ve reviewed the output from the script - other than some warnings that some modules could not be installed, for what seem to be good reasons (we have commercial EPM so OSS EPM cannot be installed, etc.) I did not notice any real errors. Still I’m including the output below.

Any help/suggestions are appreciated.

I created a checkpoint just before the reboot and have VM backup from before that I can restore from - but would really like to get to this upgrade so I can try out Zulu for me and my customers.

Thank you - Richard

REBOOT YOUR BOX NOW
If you would like to change your Asterisk release version from

from the linux CLI at anytime

The system is going down for reboot NOW!
[[email protected] freepbx_updates]#

Try this to see if you can get some more info on why it’s crashing:

When you see the bootloader do the following:
1: Hit “e” to edit the commands before booting
2: Select the your OS in the next screen and hit “e” again.
3: Remove the “quiet” option from the end of that line.
4: Have the system try to boot.

OK, looks like I’m good now. I was able to refer to another post with the same issue - was not there before, but I guess I waited long enough:
http://community.freepbx.org/t/kernel-panic-after-freepbx-13-upgrade/32137/7

After using the second grub entry to successfully boot, I uninstalled the Microsoft Linux Integration Services (LIS) and then rebooted. Default boot worked fine now.

I tried installing an updated MS LIS 4.1.2 but the install script does not recognize the FreePBX Distro as a valid CentOS or RHEL version.

No worries, the RHEL integration drivers work fine, just run (AFTER LIS is uninstalled):

  • yum install hyperv-daemons
