no no its just a test machine. Im just reporting things I find.
Trying to do my bit, im not looking at migrating anything yet!! ;-)

Ive pressed ctrl-c and got this

Please keep at it, all goes to the knowledgebase

OK, managed to reproduce by doing a straight yum update to a new A5 install - why? :-) just to know :-) if you install an A5 iso and then update it by updating some packages before others you dont get the error, that was how we did it during testing, building on fixes..the error is related to a bug fix to e-smith-ldap.

So if you do a straight yum update now to a Alpha base install, make no sense now by the way, packages are installed and end up with an almost cart before the horse scenario, lesson, Alphas are for testing only and to validate a fix, they are not designed to be updated to the finished product :-) stay with it, you and we have gained some knowledge...

Added: also if the update is done after some other updates and not before them you can also produce the error

My last words :-)

This is the same as a point in validating bug fixes in Dec 2020 you had to update smeserver-yum, e-smith-base and smeserver-php before any other updates otherwise the alpha crashed when you did a general update

And hence the reason to keep lots of notes when testing. They are vital for diagnosis.

Without them we're left guessing at best.

Agreed I want to help
Previous posts put me off because I'm not doing it right for you. I'll try harder. I know your all up against it and I really appreciate what your doing.
I'll look at the vm regarding things I shouldn't of installed. It was a test vm purely for affa. I've used it to update from sme 7 beta 6 when I first arrived here.

To be clear this vm was alpha 5 using the info on the forum to install affa. That was all.
I want to test and help but it appears I'm making things worse, sorry

Indeed.

You only get better with practice. We've all been there.

Personally I always:

Keep a notepad open to write a list of commands & notes as I go. "Repeatability' is vital.

Setup remote ssh immediately so it is easier to copy & paste from logs etc. Screen shots are a pain as we have to type out the error again.

Help us by doing some of that leg work!!

If we ask for information please give it.

Talk to us on Rocket (you have an account) and we can guide you a bit. We don't bite :lol:

I know you don't, it does look that way though on here. Maybe I should of gone into more detail about test machine etc. Too late now for that.
I get your point about wasting time on non issues, however you also ask for help with testing. I cant do what you guys do but I'd suggest not being too critical when someone like me tries to help, I'm sure there are loads of us like that even I thought I'm no use on this. I may as well not bother.

The test machine is a vm and no issue to kill it, I'm looking to test affa and letsencrypt and move a couple of non essential things over. Imo you can't test properly till it's active. I'm willing to do that. Yes they are 'production' sites but favours and free stuff so downtime isn't an issue. I just want to help get sme10 there. As a side note I started with 7b6 that I had in production. That ran my current business as a start up. I Haven't looked back!

This, over the journey have found this to be the first thing to do after installing, vital, always, keep a copy of the commands needed in a text file on my desktop, apart from being able via server-manager

# db configuration setprop sshd status enabled
# db configuration setprop sshd PermitRootLogin yes
# db configuration setprop sshd acccess private
# db configuration setprop sshd PasswordAuthentication yes
# /sbin/e-smith/signal-event remoteaccess-update

I just read my post back, I do mean it in a posative light, don't read it in a negative one.

Yes I do that but via the https admin page. However they are useful commands going forward
