Wagon upgrade: This system is managed by SUSE Manager. YaST wagon module cannot migrate systems managed by SUSE Manager

This document (7015415) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.

Environment

SUSE Manager 1.7
SUSE Manager 2.1

Situation

When following the documentation to upgrade SuSE Manager 1.7 to SuSE Manager 2.1 the "yast wagon" command gives the error: 
"This system is managed by SUSE Manager. YaST wagon module cannot migrate systems managed by SUSE Manager". 


Resolution

Remove the systemid:
#rm /etc/sysconfig/rhn/systemid 

Restart the migration:
#yast wagon
Note: "yast wagon" is the same as running "/usr/sbin/wagon"

Cause

The /etc/sysconfig/rhn/systemid was added due to a SuSE Manager client rpm being installed on the SuSE Manager server.
