    2. System Reboots to load restored 2.2.5 config.

    Post:

    1. Console menu indicates SSH is not enabled and indeed it is not.
    2. Select console menu option 14 to enable SSH, but prompted that it is already enabled and if I want to disable it.
    3. Go ahead and disable SSH.
    4. Again select console menu option 14 to enable SSH and this time the prompt is correct and SSH is enabled.

    This SSH enable/disable out of sync prompt was an issue with the previous release too.

    1. Everything seems fine.

    P.S. the fresh install was much quicker than the upgrade.
