SUSE Manager 3.1


This problem is only seen when the SUSE Manager 3.1 server has been upgrade from SUSE Manager 3.0x

As noted in the release notes jabberd can now use sqlite in place of the berkeley db database to improve stability and performance, sqlite is the preferred database option for jabberd.

Fresh installations of SUSE Manager 3.1 Server will use sqlite by default.

Existing installation need to manually switch to this database as follows

      # systemctl stop jabberd
      # spacewalk-setup-jabberd
      # systemctl start jabberd

After this the following error is spawned in the messages file:
2017-07-24T15:13:17.939726+02:00  jabberd/c2s[97309]: sqlite (authreg): no such table: authreg
2017-07-24T15:13:17.941846+02:00  jabberd/c2s[97309]: sqlite (authreg): no such table: authreg
2017-07-24T15:13:17.942099+02:00  jabberd/c2s[97309]: sqlite (authreg): no such table: authreg
2017-07-24T15:13:19.262749+02:00  jabberd/c2s[97309]: sqlite (authreg): no such table: authreg
2017-07-24T15:13:19.266225+02:00  jabberd/c2s[97309]: sqlite (authreg): no such table: authreg


To overcome this problem the sqlite database will need to be recreated using the following steps:
# systemctl stop jabberd
# /usr/share/spacewalk/setup/jabberd/create_sqlite3_database
# systemctl start jabberd


In certain scenarios the database is not created correctly, this will result in an empty database.
# ls -lh /var/lib/jabberd/db/sqlite.db
