Upgrade Omnibus 7.7.1 -> 8.3.2 Error

Hi all,

We’re trying to do an upgrade of our Gitlab environment from 7.7.1 to 8.3.2. I’ve gone through the steps for CentOS and everything installs properly. When I attempt to run ‘gitlab-ctl reconfigure’ I’m getting a weird error:

WARN: Ohai::Config[:disabled_plugins] is set. Ohai::Config[:disabled_plugins] is deprecated and will be removed in future releases of ohai. Use ohai.disabled_plugins in your configuration file to configure :disabled_plugins for ohai.
[2016-01-04T10:47:23-05:00] FATAL: SocketError: getaddrinfo: Name or service not known

I’ve checked gitlab.rb and the external URL is the same as it was before. It’s pointing to the IP. I’ve not changed anything else. The old 7.7.1 configuration should work, right? I’ve been digging through logs and can’t find much but I may not be looking in the right place.

Any ideas would be appreciated.


Plz try running these rake tests you can find health of your installation/upgrade, you can also determine is this is the only error.
Rake tests:
sudo gitlab-rake gitlab:gitlab_shell:check --trace
sudo gitlab-rake gitlab:sidekiq:check --trace
sudo gitlab-rake gitlab:app:check --trace
sudo gitlab-rake db:migrate:status --trace
sudo gitlab-rake gitlab:check SANITIZE=true --trace

Even I am faced this issue (ohai) along with “from prior resource (CHEF-3694)” error. I am debugging.
