We can't install the openssl1.1 package to get the missing file. It's only supported on RH 8.x and these servers are RH 7.x that run openssl1.0, the newest/last version supported on RH 7.x.
DX NetOps Performance Management releases r21.2.3+ where Vertica 10.1 upgrades begin.
Vertica 10.1 only supports FIPS on RH 8.x systems.
An upgrade can be performed to Vertica 10.1 in this scenario using special steps. This path ensures we maintain the FIPS certification required.
The upgrade path for this scenarios is as follows.
This is what Vertica refers to as a "Nonsequential FIPS Database Upgrade".
Under normal circumstances they recommend sequential upgrades. IE going from 9.1->9.2->10.0->10.1 without skipping releases.
Performance Management takes advantage of Nonsequential upgrade paths to help minimize upgrade down time and complexities.
Additional information from Vertica about these types of upgrades is found in their Nonsequential FIPS Database Upgrade documentation.
