Description Javier Coscia 2019-03-12 20:39:41 UTC
Description of problem:

In the Upgrade Helper tool, when checking steps to upgrade from RHV 4.1 to 4.2, we only mention to add the following repos:

# subscription-manager repos --enable=rhel-7-server-rhv-4.2-manager-rpms
# subscription-manager repos --enable=rhel-7-server-rhv-4-manager-tools-rpms
# subscription-manager repos --enable=rhel-7-server-ansible-2-rpms

This is correct, we shouldn't add any other repo here because we are doing an upgrade not installing from scratch, although, there might be scenarios where users removed previously enabled repos and the upgrade process will fail.

As an example, a user removed the `jb-eap-7-for-rhel-7-server-rpms` repository from their environment and when following the instructions from the RHV Upgrade Helper they were not able to upgrade to 4.2 due to the lack of the mentioned repo.

I think the best would be to add a reference to the installation guide for users to check the relevant repositories, or to add all the repos which are needed and a note saying to ensure the xxxx repos are present before the upgrade.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. In the RHV upgrade helper select current version as 4.1 and Target as 4.2
2. complete the information asked 
3. section 1.1 points to enable only 4.2 repos and ansible
