How to upgrade from CentOS 6 to 7

CentOS 7 was released few months ago which I was very excited, but I have been waiting for a while for bugs fixing. Usually when any Linux distro is released, they usually comes with unknow bugs which may break your system. CentOS is always my favorite linux distro since it’s a very stable distro, and CentOS is basically RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux) but it’s free. Let’s talk a little bit about new version of CentOS, CentOS 7 comes with systemd which incorporates features that help enhance scalability and optimize performance, Docker (open-source engine that automates deploy any application) integration, and many more great new features:

  • Supports For Linux Containers
  • XFS as the default filesystem
  • Updated kernel to 3.10.0
  • LVM-snapshots with ext4 and XFS
  • Switched from MySQL to MariaDB
  • Support up to 40G Ethernet Cards
  • Support installation in UEFI mode
  • Comes with VMware Tools & 3D graphics drivers

For full CentOS release notes, you can visit http://wiki.centos.org/Manuals/ReleaseNotes/CentOS7

At the time I’m writing, CentOS 7 only comes with x86_64 version, we are expected to see 32 bit x86, ARM, and PowerPC releases later. So, if you have old 32bit version of CentOS 6, if you want to use CentOS 7, you will have to clean install CentOS 7 x86_64 (if your cpu and motherboard supports x86_64). The good new is, if you are using CentOS 6 x86_64 or 64 bit version of CentOS 6, you can upgrade to CentOS 7 without reinstall your whole system again.

** Before we do anything, I have tested upgrading from CentOS 6 to 7 on several systems, there are risks involved. It means after upgrading, some of the services will not be 100% functional. Luckily, preupg will analyze and let you know the risk factors before you actually do the upgrade.

So let’s get started!

Update your current CentOS 6 system

Before you do anything, you should update all your packages to the newest versions to avoid any problem later on.

# yum -y update

Check your current CentOS 6 version

You can upgrade from CentOS 6.5 or 6.6 to 7, if you have older version, you should update your CentOS 6 to the newest version which is 6.6 as of I’m writing this.

# cat /etc/redhat-release

This is the output on my machine

CentOS release 6.6 (Final)

Install some required packages and upgrade tools

You may have these packages installed on your system, but in case you don’t, you will need to install them.

yum -y install openscap pcre-devel libxml2-devel libxslt-devel m2crypto python-simplejson mod_wsgi

Starting from RHEL 7, Red Hat start to support for upgrading to major releases (RHEL 6.5 –> RHEL 7) via a tool called redhat-upgrade-tool.
To install upgarde tools, there are two ways to do it. Easy/quick way is to create a new repo file, or the long/hard way is to download each package and install them. I’m going to show you both ways.

The long way: the tools you need should be available to download at http://dev.centos.org/centos/6/upg/x86_64/Packages/ The files you will need are:

  • preupgrade-assistant
  • preupgrade-assistant-contents
  • preupgrade-assistant-ui
  • redhat-upgrade-tool

To download and install those packages:

# cd /etc
# wget http://dev.centos.org/centos/6/upg/x86_64/Packages/preupgrade-assistant-1.0.2-33.0.3.el6.centos.x86_64.rpm http://dev.centos.org/centos/6/upg/x86_64/Packages/preupgrade-assistant-contents-0.5.13-1.0.5.el6.centos.noarch.rpm http://dev.centos.org/centos/6/upg/x86_64/Packages/preupgrade-assistant-ui-1.0.2-33.0.3.el6.centos.x86_64.rpm http://dev.centos.org/centos/6/upg/x86_64/Packages/redhat-upgrade-tool-0.7.22-3.el6.centos.noarch.rpm
# yum localinstall preupgrade-assistant-*

Another way to install preupgrade and redhat upgrade tools is to add a new repo file. So let’s create a new repo file named upgradetool.repo in /etc/yum.repos.d/

# nano /etc/yum.repos.d/upgradetool.repo

with the content

[upg]
name=CentOS-$releasever - Upgrade Tool
baseurl=http://dev.centos.org/centos/6/upg/x86_64/
gpgcheck=1
enabled=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-CentOS-6
The command to install preupgrade and redhat upgrade tools
# yum -y install redhat-upgrade-tool preupgrade-assistant-contents

Run preupgrade assistant

As I mentioned about preupg (Preupgrade Assistant), preupg does not do the actual upgrading but will check for potential problems you might get from upgrading from CentOS 6 to 7. To run preupg

# preupg

preupg will ask you if you want to continue, say yes

[root@namhuy ~]# preupg
Preupg tool doesn't do the actual upgrade.
Please ensure you have backed up your system and/or data in the event of a failed upgrade that would require a full re-install of the system from installation media.
Do you want to continue? y/n
This is the result preupg tool give me for my system

Tarball with results is stored here /root/preupgrade-results/preupg_results-141103172105.tar.gz .
The latest assessment is stored in directory /root/preupgrade .
Summary information:
We found some potential in-place upgrade risks.
Read the file /root/preupgrade/result.html for more details.
Upload results to UI by command:
e.g. preupg -u http://127.0.0.1:8099/submit/ -r /root/preupgrade-results/preupg_results-*.tar.gz .

Exit Codes meaning

After running preupg tool, you will get the result with exit codes, here are the meaning of them

  • PASS: Everything is good
  • FAIL: something goes wrong, may have to do with compatibility problem
  • FIXED: incompatibility was detected, but there are solutions to fix by
    running postupgrade.d scripts after the upgrade.
  • INFORMATIONAL: information for admins
  • NOT_APPLICABLE: some packages are not installed on your system but should be checked
  • ERROR: means there are errors in the preupgrade-assistant framework (you don’t need to worry about this)

Upgrade from CentOS 6 to 7

Once you run preupg tool and reviewing the errors, risks in the results, you should be ready to upgrade from CentOS 6 to 7. You will need to import the CentOS 6 RPM key

# rpm --import http://mirror.centos.org/centos/RPM-GPG-KEY-CentOS-7

Finally, run this command to upgrade

# centos-upgrade-tool-cli --network 7 --instrepo=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/7/os/x86_64/

You can choose another mirror which is close to you for faster download, the full mirror list is available at http://www.centos.org/download/mirrors/

The output after I ran the command:

setting up repos...
.treeinfo                                                                                                                                                 | 1.1 kB     00:00
Preupgrade assistant risk check found risks for this upgrade.
You can run preupg --riskcheck --verbose to view these risks.
Addressing high risk issues is required before the in-place upgrade
and ignoring these risks may result in a broken upgrade and unsupported upgrade.
Please backup your data.
 
List of issues:
INPLACERISK: HIGH: We detected some non-CentOS signed packages, you can find the list in /root/preupgrade/./kickstart/noncentospkgs. You need to handle them yourself!
INPLACERISK: HIGH: Package python-cheetah  (required by NonCentOS signed package(s):cloud-init ) removed between CentOS 6 and CentOS 7
INPLACERISK: HIGH: After upgrading to CentOS 7 there are still some el6 packages left. Add --cleanup-post option to redhat-upgrade-tool if you want to remove them automatically.
INPLACERISK: HIGH: The service ip6tables on CentOS 7 is disabled by default. Enable them via commands: systemctl enable ip6tables && systemctl start ip6tables.service .
INPLACERISK: HIGH: The service netfs on CentOS 7 is disabled by default. Enable them via commands: systemctl enable netfs && systemctl start netfs.service .
INPLACERISK: HIGH: The service network on CentOS 7 is disabled by default. Enable them via commands: systemctl enable network && systemctl start network.service .

Continue with the upgrade [Y/N]?
After running the centos-upgrade-tool-cli command, centos-upgrade-tool-cli gives me a list of issues if I do the upgrade. There are some differences between Centos 6 and 7 as “HIGH” issues show. I will go ahead and say yes to get the upgrading process started. centos-upgrade-tool-cli will ask you to reboot after download some pacakges, go ahead and reboot your system to complete the upgrade.
# reboot
When your system is booted up, check your system if it’s Centos 7
# cat /etc/redhat-release
This is what I see after the upgrade
CentOS Linux release 7.0.1406 (Core)
