What is ELevate Script?

 ELevate is an open source migration tool developed by AlmaLinux team. It allows you to easily and smoothly migrate between major versions of RHEL-based distributions from 7.x to 8.x version.

ELevate combines Red Hat's Leapp framework with a community created library and service for the migration metadata set required for it.

It currently supports migration from CentOS 7 to the following OSes:

  • AlmaLinux OS 8
  • CentOS Stream 8
  • Oracle Linux 8
  • Rocky Linux 8

Migrations can be done in place, meaning data and configuration files are preserved. In other words, all the installed applications and settings and data will remain intact. However, the users are HIGHLY ENCOURAGED to backup the important data before starting the migration.

ELevate is an open source program, released under the Apache 2.0 License.
