This document (000020594) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


SUSE Enterprise Storage 7


Following the documentation to upgrade and adopt the monitoring stack as part of upgrading to SUSE Enterprise Storage 7 (SES 7) the following error is returned:
stat: stderr stat: cannot stat '/etc/alertmanager': No such file or directory


The error is cosmetic and can be ignored.


Since containers may have different places for configuration files, the error is due to cephadm checking for multiple paths for the alertmanager configuration file.
