Following the SES 7 Online documentation to upgrade a SES 6 cluster, after step 2. when "zypper migration" was run on the first MON node and the node rebooted, executing the adopt salt state as per step 3. completes without any errors, however no containers are started / listed when running "podman ps".

When running the command "cephadm ls" on the relevant node, it fails as follows:
# /usr/sbin/cephadm ls
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/cephadm", line 6251, in <module>

configparser.DuplicateSectionError: While reading from '<???>' [line 14]: section 'global' already exists


Remove any duplicate sections from the "/etc/ceph/ceph.conf" file then run the adopt state again. The above example indicates that at least for the [global] section in the file there are multiple entries.


Duplicate / multiple section entries in the "/etc/ceph/ceph.conf" file.

Additional Information

Since at this stage the cluster is in a partly migrated state, do not use DeepSea but rather manually update the "/etc/ceph/ceph.conf" file and copy it to the cluster node(s).
