Upgrade for nanobsd from 1G to 2G or 4G



  • I understand that the 1G images are not supported anymore.
    So I can't make an in place upgrade from 2.2.6 to 2.3 RC.
    What is the best way to upgrade and keep configuration?
    Can I fully image with a 2G image and then restore the old 2.2.6 config backup?

    thanks, Till



  • Can I fully image with a 2G image and then restore the old 2.2.6 config backup?

    Yes, make a new 2G or bigger CF card from a 2.2.6 or 2.3 full image.
    After restoring the 2.2.6 config, as it reboots it will automagically update any necessary stuff in the old config to bring it up to the installed version.



  • That has worked flawlessly. I am really impressed.
    Just imaged 2.3 on a spare CF card and imported the old config.
    Will move on to the next box now.
    thanks!
