  • I think that no packages to deinstall and simple hardware played an important part in your success.



  • Uncomplicated hardware is a plus usually as is uncomplicated configurations, but all of my updates went fine on both minimal and complicated installs.



  • I guess I am just unlucky. The last upgrade I did that didn't need starting again from ISO was upgrading to 2.1.5 . Since then, I have had to go back to ISO install and configure everything in the GUI each time. Fortunately for me, restoring from backup config works if I don't change version number.



  • I hate to post a "me, too" response, but me, too.

    APU2 running nanoBSD.  Upgrade went smooth.  I have 5 more customer APUs to update today, and a SG-2440.  I'll try the instance I have running on ESXi 5.5 shortly.



  • My instance on ESXi 5.5u2 upgraded just fine.



  • NanoBSD… hmm. You've got me thinking about trying this again.



  • Be brave.  Take the leap.



  • NanoBSD has it's place.  It's much more tolerant of abuse by the failings of your local electrical utility.

    So is a notebook (built-in UPS).



  • Also no trouble.

    Intel Atom x64 hd install, squid3, squidguard, a few other packages, no problem. Haven't ssh'ed yet to check my loader.conf.



  • No problems here either.

    2.2.1 (newinstall) x64, hyper-v guest
    LAN, WAN, GUESTLAN(VLAN), OpenVPN-server and IPSEC lines, Squid, Squidfilter, Sarg, Lightsquid
    Went smooth to up to 2.2.2 (gambled and did it remotely connected with VPN…)  :o

    Brgs,
