remove all contribs
« on: June 13, 2006, 06:20:10 AM »
Am I the only one having trouble trying to remember what contribs I installed across my servers?

My contribs are in an ibay but some were installed via a script. So I'm not exactly sure what's installed and isn't installed. Maybe you fall into the same boat.

To list out all rpm's and when they were installed.
Quote

rpm -qa --last


Get the list of rpms that are installed and compare to original:
Quote

# rpm -qa --queryformat '%{NAME}\n' | sort > rpms_installed
# vi rpms_original (paste in the rpms listed below)
# diff -u rpms_original rpms_installed > rpms_diff


Here you can read rpms_diff for a list of differences.
Everything with a + is added from the original.
Everything with a - is removed from the original:
Quote

# cat rpms_diff


Or you can look at just the contribs:
Quote

#grep "+[a-z]" rpms_diff


Either remove the rpms manually.
Quote

#yum remove <packagename>


Or script the removal.
Can someone help me here? Will this work? Something similar to:
Quote

# yum remove grep "+[a-z]" rpms_diff | sed "s/+//" | sed "s/compat-glibc//"


================================================================================================
Using the info above I create a process & procedure for upgrading my servers. I'm posting it as an upgrade guide.
Quote

#PROCEDURE GUIDE TO UPGRADE TO V7

#ASSUMPTIONS
-As always, I'm not responsible for lost data. Use at your own risk. YMMV.
-this is a procedure guide for the somewhat expericenced. Not necessarily a step-by-step for newbies.
-the dashes signify a new step. Don't include them in the command. Print out the procedure and checkmark the dashes as you go through the process so you know when the step is completed.
-have old v6 in raid
-you've blocked off 2 hrs of time

#OVERVIEW
-remove all contribs & custom templates from v6
-install all v6 yum packages
-upgrade to v7
-signal-event post-upgrade
-signal-event reboot

###---PROCEDURE-OLDSYSTEM---###
#RE-RAID & BACKUP
-re-raid fully to 100%
-remove drive as a backup

#STOP EMAIL
-/etc/init.d/smtpfront-qmail stop
-/etc/init.d/qmail stop

#GET LIST OF PACKAGE DIFFERENCES
-rpm -qa --queryformat '%{NAME}\n' | sort > rpms_installed
-create rpms_original file (use list below)
-diff -u rpms_original rpms_installed > rpms_diff

#Here you can read rpms_diff for a list of differences.
#Everything with a + is added from the original.
#Everything with a - is removed from the original:
-cat rpms_diff

#REMOVE ALL CONTRIBS NOT ON A V6.0.1 FRESH INSTALL BY PACKAGENAME
-yum remove grep "+[a-z]" rpms_diff | sed "s/+//" | sed "s/compat-glibc//"

#REMOVE ALL CUSTOM TEMPLATES
-remove all templates-custom & templates-user-custom

#REMOVE ALL CONTRIBS NOT ON A V6.0.1 FRESH INSTALL BY VERSIONRELEASE
-rpm -qa --queryformat '%{NAME}-%{VERSION}-%{RELEASE}\n' | sort > rpms_installed_nvr
-create rpms_original_nvr file (use list below)
-diff -u rpms_original_nvr rpms_installed_nvr > rpms_diff_nvr
#Look at the list of differences
-grep "+[a-z]" rpms_diff_nvr
#remove all the packages in the list by hand
-yum remove <packagename>
#Also, if needed, remove the MySQL packages like this.
-rpm --erase --justdb --noscripts --notriggers MySQL-server MySQL-client
#These are the packages I had left over & didn't remove:
+compat-glibc-6.2-2.1.3.2
+openssl-0.9.6m-1es1
+zlib-1.2.1.1-4

#YUM TO LATEST PACKAGES
#just to see the list
-yum list
#install by hand
-yum install <packagename>
#speed up process by installing all packages by letter. For example: yum install p*
#you may have to fiddle around here a little bit. But it shouldn't be that hard.

#RERUN TEMPLATES & REBOOT
-se post-upgrade
-se reboot

#UPLUG FROM WAN

#BACKUP MYSQL TO DB
-se pre-backup

###---PROCEDURE-NEWSYSTEM---###
#EITHER UPGRADE FROM CD (insert CD) --OR-- RESTORE FROM DISK (instructions below)

#I chose to upgrade from CD because in my testing I didn't see any advantages or differences in restoring from disk other than moving to new hardware.

##RESTORE FROM DISK BEGIN##

#REMOVE HD FROM OLD V6

#INSTALL OLD HD IN NEW SYSTEM ON HDA

#CHANGE ALL PARTITIONS TYPE TO LINUX
-boot from KNOPPIX
-open terminal
-su
-fdisk /dev/hda
-t <to change type>
-L <to see hex codes for different FS types>
-83 (i think this is linux, but check in the list to be certain)
-w
-q
-exit
-exit
-reboot

#COPY HD INFO FROM OLD HD (ON HDA) TO NEW SYSTEM
-cd /
-mkdir /mnt/tmp
-mount /dev/hda2 /mnt/tmp
-/sbin/e-smith/db configuration setprop backup Program CopyFromDisk status enabled
-signal-event pre-restore
-signal-event restore-tape /mnt/tmp
-signal-event post-upgrade
-signal-event reboot

##RESTORE FROM DISK END##

###---AFTER UPGRADE PROCDURE---###

#INSTALL NEW CONTRIBS
-print out the list of rpms_diff & decide which ones you want and are available.

#adjust RBL's
-config show qpsmtpd
-config setprop qpsmtpd RBLList sbl-xbl.spamhaus.org,dsn.rfc-ignorant.org,postmaster.rfc-ignorant.org,abuse.rfc-gnorant.org,whois.rfc-ignorant.org,bogusmx.rfc-ignorant.org,dnsbl.njabl.org,relays.ordb.org,dnsbl.sorbs.net,list.dsbl.org
-config setprop qpsmtpd DNSBL enabled RHSBL enabled
-signal-event email-update

#install lat
-wget http://mirror.contribs.org/smeserver/contribs//jbennett/sme7/lat/e-smith-lazy_admin_tools-0_9_1-0_noarch.rpm
-rpm -Uvh e-smith-lazy_admin_tools-0_9_1-0_noarch.rpm

#adjust forwarded users to forward instead of deliver locally
#(users that forwarded before used a procmail option which isn't available, so it's set to deliver locally)
-lat-dump -d
-adjust the file

Am I the only one having trouble trying to remember what contribs I installed across my servers?

To list out all rpm's and when they were installed.
Quote

rpm -qa --queryformat '%{NAME} was installed on %{INSTALLTIME:date}\n'



"rpm -qa --last" will give you a sorted list.

I'd recommend that you use an i-bay to hold all add-on RPMs. You will have a record of what additional software is installed, and you will be able to rapidly re-install your contribs if you need to restore from backup.

What about programs installed without using a rpm ?
eg programname.tar.gz etc.
I realise it's not ideal practice, but it does work OK & I 'm sure many people have installed stuff that way.

Oh well, nothing like a good memory eh ?

Good point. I would think that "many" is a little far and that "some" would be more accurate. But who knows. Couple of thoughts:
-this focuses on the majority of installs/contribs via rpms (not the minority)
-this is to help pick up the contribs installed via script as well
-if you're installing stuff from source code, you probably don't need this guide. You either know what you're doing (pro/semi-pro) or had such trouble that you're not going to forget the contrib that was installed (amatur).
-the source is still in the dir/ibay you installed from (hopefully along with all the other contribs, rpms and script that were installed)

>>Oh well, nothing like a good memory eh ?
I found that a changelog works better than my memory. But nothing substitutes for a good memory.

Since this post has more than 7000 views without a single "thanks" or "i couldn't get this working" I can pretty much tell that it is working or else I've would have heard by now.

I did it! Your "diff-thingy" was very inspiring and I think I got the point of what it was about - though I did it my non-geek-way...

See:
http://forums.contribs.org/index.php?topic=30745.msg140843#msg140843

THANK YOU! (I think it was really time to say that!)

Have fun,
Johannes.
Greetings, Johannes

Hi,  
I am trying to follow this procedure..
and I note it does suggest it is for people that know what they are doing,  but there lies the issue..  
How can I upgrade to V7 without knowing what I am doing ?
I need to rely on a procedure like this !!
Hmmm   what a quandry !

Anyway..  Working thru this, and attempting to know what I am doing,  I am at a point where I dare not continue, with fear that I may abliterate my entire v6 which we are currently running on.
Sadly given the laptop Hardware I am running on, I have no facility of a Raid1 mirror backup as suggested..  So I must take a risk.
That said I have taken a desktop backup. which is becoming out of date  so we will lose email if I am forced to restore the backup.

Anyway..  I have created the rpms_installed and original files..
I run the 'diff -u rpms_original rpms_installed > rpms_diff'
and look at the output and become confused..
The procedure posted suggests that anything with a + has been added and a - has been removed.
but the diff seems to list everything in the installed with a '+'  and the original with a '-'
as suggested at the top of the output file rpms_diff..
--- rpms_original   Tue Sep  5 12:25:33 2006
+++ rpms_installed   Tue Sep  5 13:26:24 2006
 so for example  I have....
-anacron
+anacron
in the rpms_diff output ?

So if I were to continue with the next step..  won't I remove everything ?
I thought the rpms_diff was meant to only list the differences ??
appreciate your advice.

There is probably white space in the rpms_original. Try diff and ignore the white space.
Code: [Select]

diff -ub rpms_original rpms_installed > rpms_diff
