# spacewalk-schema-upgrade
Schema upgrade: [susemanager-schema-3.1.19-2.30.1] -> [susemanager-schema-3.2.12-3.3.1] Searching for upgrade path to: [susemanager-schema-3.2.12-3.3.1] Searching for upgrade path to: [susemanager-schema-3.2.12] Searching for start path:  [susemanager-schema-3.1.19-2.30.1]
Searching for start path:  [susemanager-schema-3.1.19] Was not able to find upgrade path in directory [/etc/sysconfig/rhn/schema-upgrade].


Workaround is to create the missing folder:
# mkdir /etc/sysconfig/rhn/schema-upgrade/susemanager-schema-3.1.19-to-susemanager-schema-3.2.0

This issue is fixed in an upcoming maintenance update (eta : end of the September 2018).
