I'm currently trying to upgrade a BigInsights cluster (from 22.214.171.124 to 1.4 version)
To do so, I already upgraded it (from 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52)
For this first upgrade, I followed all the instructions and ended up by running the finalizeUpgrade.sh script that ran successfully.
Then, while trying to upgrade the cluster to version 1.4 I'm facing an issue that I am not able to solve.
Here are the logs for this upgrade :
INFO] Progress - BigInsights 184.108.40.206 is from an upgrad of BigInsights 220.127.116.11...
INFO Progress - Check HDFS upgrade status
INFO @bigdata.ibm.com - hadoop dfsadmin -upgradeProgress status
There are no upgrades in progress.
ERROR DeployManager -
ERROR DeployManager - OPERATION ERROR -- Backup directories:
ERROR DeployManager -
ERROR DeployManager - Sanity tests failed
com.ibm.xap.mgmt.DeployException: Sanity test failed against the BigInsights installed. -- =1 (Sanity test failed: null Please upgrade and finalize HDFS before upgrading to the new version of BigInsights.)
ERROR DeployManager - Backup directories failed
com.ibm.xap.mgmt.DeployException: No directories were backed up because the sanity test failed.
ERROR] DeployManager - Backup directories; SUCCEEDED components: [; FAILED components: Sanity tests, Backup directories
FATAL Failed to backup previous biginsights.
It looks like I haven't run the upgrade-DFS and the finalizeUpgrade scripts but I did and it turns out they were successful.
I also set all the directories permissions correctly so I don't know what to do.
I would appreciate any help to fix this issue.
Thanks in advance

Re: Upgrade IUI0005E: Failed to backup previous biginsights2012-11-02T20:23:08ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.Hi Emilie,
1) Please verify that under $BIGINSIGHTS_HOME (/opt/ibm/biginsights) and $BIGINSIGHTS_VAR (/var/ibm/biginsights) there are no _biattic* directories
2) If _biattic* directories are gone, then modify $BIGINSIGHTS_HOME/conf/install.xml
where it says: <operation>upgrade</operation>
change it to: <operation>install</operation>
3) Try again with the upgrade
Hope this helps.
