SUSE Enterprise Storage 6


Running stage 0 to update the SES cluster reports that the updates state is being skipped and no updates are installed on any of the cluster minions. An excerpt from the DeepSea log shows messages similar to the following:
2021-04-12 11:20:49,622 [INFO] deepsea.monitor: Started State step: [-1/160] name=ceph.updates() on=['']
2021-03-12 11:20:50,040 [INFO] deepsea.monitor: Finished State step: [-1/160] name=ceph.updates() success=True
2021-03-12 11:20:50,189 [INFO] deepsea.monitor: Skipping non started state step: [28/160] name=ceph.updates()


In the "/etc/salt/minion" configuration file of the minions remove the following section then restart the minions:


Since salt 2017 a new syntax was introduced for the state that can be enabled with the "use_superseded" setting. The setting enables salt to use a new YAML type structure which is incompatible with DeepSea, since DeepSea uses the old syntax.
