Investigation result:

  • ESPOS is an extension of HPC, just like LTSS or Live-patching.
  • So I think the testing steps are: register ESPOS before migration; then fully update the OS; because on SCC ESPOS page 1, it says: Older versions of this product cannot migrate to this version. This product cannot be migrated to any newer versions. so we should de-register ESPOS, then perform migration.

I have had a try to do migration as above steps:

  • generated registration codes for x86_64 and aarch64, I will send the codes to team next Tue.
  • created a image of hpc-15-sp1, registered the ESPOS on it, failed and reported a bug: bsc#1178508 Then block here. I can not continue to perform migration because register ESPOS failed.

  • Status changed from Blocked to In Progress

The bug is fixed so remove the 'block' here.
I manually tried the migration workflow as I said in the comment #1. Successfully with the migration.
Opened a new ticket to trace the ESPOS' automation case. (poo#77272)
I will close here after after tomorrow morning's scrum meeting.
